My g/f and I are throwing the idea around. Spoke with Sia and planned on joining his yearly GTA-group to cruise down together. Maybe we can all meet up around Rochester and tour down from there? Which way were you thinking about taking? Through Vermont or NY?

chromius
08-05-2008, 11:14 AM
That would be cool. Previous years we've gone through Montreal to meet up with people and then cruise down through Vermont, So it would depend on if we are doing that route again or not. If we were to do it again Rochester might be a little out of the way, but we could most likely do Albany if you guys would be going that route.

Plus my school taxes came in and my welcome taxes.. So I'm really tight for money, although I did pick up my new sno blower lol.. Sucks but it's reality :( I miss the days of thousands a month clear in my pocket.. now it's in one hand out the other :(

If he got fired, he should have a lot of free time to spend painting your car. :P

You can't back out, Dave. Think of all the cheap parts.

I need to get my wheel bearing fixed. Something else that's decided to quit on me.

Fan delete is still running well. Took the car to TO and back last weekend, and no issues at all. Not even a slight dip of the needle, with traffic and 30 degree weather.

So what's the plan going to be this year?

Leave on the Saturday (4th), and come back on Sunday after the show? Or stay the night on Sunday and come back on the Monday? Last year we had thanksgiving holiday so Monday was no issue, but this year is different. I don't think I want to drive back after the show again. That was retarded. :P

09-10-2008, 11:45 AM
Since my wife is coming too we'll likely make it a little vacation, taking the monday and tuesday off, so we're not good to coordinate with.

Do you have to book hotels ahead of time? Cuz that would be, like, now.

chromius
09-10-2008, 12:04 PM
Yeah, same here. The GF and I are also going to turn it into a mini vacation, so we won't be going back on the Sunday. We're off for the Monday and Tuesday as well.

But yes, We'll do the same as last year and head down on the Saturday.

As for the Hotel, we should probably book at the Days INN. But we need to get some confirmed numbers with a definite Y/N if everybody's going or not. Or we can just take our chances and everyone book their own stuff.

So who's in for sure!?

IN:
Adam (Chromius)
Jay (Everlast)

Dave?
Lee?
Adam?
Jesse?

I'm going to trust that you guys who know the area can book a hotel / get me the number for me to book. I know we'll want our own room, no bunking punks. :)

Also, let's start a list of tools that we need to bring. Put down the tools that you think we'll need, and if you have that tool, add your name. If anyone has a small aluminum jack they could bring, it would be better than mine, its medium sized.

- socket set - jay
- set of metric wrenches - jay
- twist ties - jay
- aluminum jack - jay
- 2x4 piece(s) for make-shift ramp - NEED
- good strong flashlight - NEED
- e39 rad - adam :D

What day are we checking in? Saturday?

Check-out Sunday or Monday?

Also, I'm seeing $169/night on their website. Did you find a better price elsewhere? I think that's going to be cost prohibitive to some people.

Edit:

I see it's $169 for the sat and $129 for the sunday.

chromius
09-22-2008, 01:09 PM
Check in Saturday, Check out Sunday.

If you can find a better rate/hotel, then by all means. There's no rule as to where we stay, but that's the one where a lot of people stay because it's right down the street from Bav.

Nice hotel choice for your sausage party*shiner*

Yeah I wish I could go, still haven't had the time to look at my problem :( Talked to my mechanic and he said it's probablly (the system is pressurizing) Because I ran a bit with a leaking coolant hose, and too much air may have got in. Need to bring it in, to be fixed!! Then it's storing it October 31st and I don't want to miss the Fall cruise :(

Oh and money is a big Issue right now, Ac/DC is costing me a fortune!! Staying at the rogers centre..damn it.. Someone lend me money for Bav Auto!!

Just a Birth Certificate or any government issued identification( Drivers License, health card etc..) PassPort will be mandatory in June-july 2009 that it will be mandatory.

Hey Guys. I know its a bit late but I finally found the info for a place that the E28 gang stayed at last year when we went to Bav Auto. Its a bunch of cabins 10 minutes from Bav Auto and its cheap but the best part about it is they have a garden hose and a place to wash your cars on Saturday afternoon when you get there. Just one warning though. They have on site people that look after the cabins and there are 2 women that do not have a set of teeth between them and they are looking for young guys for fun. Stay AWAY! They have a place where you can have a camp fire with picnic tables to sit on at night for drinking beer and socializing. If and when we go back to Bav Auto we will stay there again just for the fact that it is cheaper than the Comfort Inn.*th-up*Good luck and have fun there this year guys.Take lots of pics please.

PS. Tedfest 2009 is on Saturday July 4th if the Ottawa gang ever wants to come down to it. Cheers. Ted In T.O.*rockout*

PSS Please count the number of E28's and E12's there this year for me.The record is 22 E28's and 2 e12's in the same year which was last year when I organized an invasion or these Old School BMW's. Thanx. Ted

Oh so you know Bill Wiseman do you? If you feed them beer and you have a cute ass they will not leave you alone. They are in their 40's with husbands nearby. All they want is your empties.*no-no* Say hi and thats it. Really it is a good place to stay. If and when we go back to Bav auto again we will certainly stay there. We are currently going to the Vintage races at Lime rock for 3 days during the labour weekend which is more fun than Bav.*wiggle* Ted
