I can meet you guys somewhere easier to get to if you want. frank may also be down with coming to watch if I can sweet talk him. I'm helping him pull his dash afterwards.

What route are you guys taking north? I'm about 5 minutes from 95, and an hour or so north of you

I am thinking about driving up a little closer the night before. If I come I'd need 3 pulls at the most to check the improvement with COPs and to upload, pull the new timing curve.

Anybody have a spare bed... and I mean BED... and by BED, really mean sister with a bed! I stopped doing couches and floors in College.

1.6 or 1.8 pp? I've got a Spec PP I just removed. Not sure if I can make it or not. I think my wife might have something going on for my B-day that day. Didn't do much for me today (my actual b-day). I'll try and press the issue to see if it frees me up.

Lets try and time things correctly. Anyone have some 2 way radio's? we could use them to communicate on the road, I have one, we could pick a channel for everyone to be on.

If we do the radio thing, I'll strategically post myself at the wawa right off 95 and someone could make a call over the radios when you all are close.

I guess cell phones might be better for that though

can't figure out how to post the link to google maps, it's a generic url.

It's exit 77b off of I-95 north then a right hand turn at the first stoplight. WAWA is impossible to miss. It's right there on the right hand side

there's a "link to this page" link on the upper right above the map.
