14 hours and some 800 miles for me...not gonna happen...this year. I'll have to wait until a year when I can get vacation that week.

Drink some Seagram's for me! :merk:

Do I need to bring Little Debbie cakes as a peace offering?

Little debs are NEVER a bad idea.

But keep in mind, my neighbor is a Little Debbie distributor :D

Alabama, mang.

NitroNic

I was married in Alabama and I have outlaws in Northport/Tuscaloosa that we go visit several times a year.... anywhere near there?

Grand Marquis GT
09-14-2010, 11:12 PM
Prattville, near Montgomery. I'm a little over 2 hrs away. All interstate. My wife is from Hamilton, AL which is a little north of there. Nice area.

I'm going to try for this, only about 2-3 hours from Pensacola.


Just have to decide which Ford to bring. If I can get my room mate to go then we will bring both.

Get over it, Larry.

You're never going to make any meets even remotely close to the right coast.

You're probably right, of course. However, you never truly know, do you?

It'd help to know ahead of time though, because it'd be really unfortunate if we were to unexpectedly cross paths at one of the fine meets sponsored by this site.

Hmmm...

STS-133 Shuttle launch is February 27th. 9 hours away from Prattville. Fascinating.

Almost as fascinating?

The Don Garlits museum is about 6 hours away, Ocala, FL.

I feel the need to start another thread in this forum.

*IF* (and it's a pretty big *IF*,) by then, there is a confluence of "means, motive and opportunity", then for sure I will be there.

All my life I have wanted to visit Alabama the heart of Dixie, Mississippi and the Florida panhandle.

The car was fully serviced at the Ford/Lincoln/Mercury dealer where I bought it, today, and yesterday its Marauder sway bars went on, and it's already got a new full size CVPI type spare tire and a dual exhaust. It is as ready to do this as I am --- and I would enjoy talking cars to you all guys and check out your cars.

I need a vacation from this state. BAD ! And I like to drive this car.

Is the weather OK in March?

Okay guys.....I'm trying to sell this to my wife. She's not big on drinking or anything but she does like to converse and do stuff. So I have a few questions to ask (for her):

What kind of activities are planned?
How many folks are coming for sure?
Are we staying at someone's home/shop or will we need to get a hotel?
Will there be other women for my wife to hang out with?

My questions:

Will there be heavy drinking?
Will there be a bonfire?
Will there be grillin'?
Do we need to bring anything?

Anything else you guys could ad would be greatly appreciated.

One thing's for sure:

1. It won't be at my house
2. I ain't drinking

Lessons learned. lol

Actually, we're looking to have it offsite. Perhaps we could rent some cabins up at Lake Jordan. Sure is cheaper than hotels, and we don't have to clean up as vigorously when we're done!
