i think this place is ok. i wouldn't worry too much about SE/Anacostia since the Potomac provides a good dividing line. it's usually quiet since the park is on it's own little peninsula. i would say its closer to downtown dc than Anacostia.

Point taken, wouldn't go walking around alone there at night, but in the day its doable...picture-snapping tourists and tourist buses galore

Like I said, it was just a suggestion...happy to check it out for you guys

I agree, if the caravan is coming from Rt 123 Mclean to GW Parkway, might as well continue the ride towards Belle Haven, Mt. Vernon, very scenic drive, nice bike trails and scenic parks along the way. Parks there has bbq pit, but got entry fee I think. and Old Town Alexandria is pretty hip!

I just took this picture of Rutherford Park. Haven't been in the park itself, but I like the lot:

Not too familiar with Mt Vernon but Old Town on a weekend is simply not doable...too much tourist traffic.

Shimshimhada: Lot looks good, whereabouts?

Looking at the last meet, I saw that the crew did a drive by/thru at a local Audi dealer. For this meet, I elect we go stir up trouble at a Lexus dealer in light of recent Lexus attacks on e90s (re. hotsand5 and baller325)

Good recon KL.

I dont think the location is bad, considering its a park and we will be gone before its dark enough for you to worry about being shot. I think the lack of BBQ pits is a bigger concern, unless you guys want to have a delivery guy deliver 30 pizzas out to a park..... :P

Thanks Poldim, the place really isn't bad or shady, there is a golf course and a restaurant on the park/peninsula. It is also home to the admin office (park management).

Being a recent transplant to the area I wasn't aware of the spot until recently when one of our limo drivers took us (and guests) around the spot during a little after dinner city tour (I work for a diplomatic mission and sometimes have to assist in babysitting visitors)

Yes!!! ...if only I could make love to a car...

His name is Hans and he treats me oh so good.

Yeah, the last time Audi cussed me out was being I had complained to his manager because he had told me my car was ready when it wasnt. I had gone up there to get the car and got off work early to do so and he wasnt there and the car was not ready.So to verify I had his manager listen to the voicemail the SA had left me telling me it was ready that afternoon for pick up... When I called the next morning to find out what was going on the SA cussed me out and hung up on me.... yay, for Audi!

We need some feedback from you guys. I'm guessing Tysons is a one set location. We still need to sort out what we're going to do afterwards.

Donny, Im with you. I havent been in the area long enough to know parks and all that well... Im up for any particular location at this point... I set this beast in motion, and now is my busiest time of the year...

So. Here it is... meet at Tysons II and cover up the license plates quickly (so the mall security isnt writing down tags again... It helps that my license plate has changed since last time ) Snap a few quick pics...

Roll out to the point. Meet up around noon at the point. Head over to GW Parkway (beautiful drive, but not too twisty), then maybe some twisties back in the Great Falls area like last time...

We should get these plans set in stone now... just make a decision and go with it...

Ok, let's just go ahead and agree. We'll meet up at Tysons II as suggested at the prescribed time and date, spend some time to meet, chat, take pics and kick some tires. We'll follow that with lunch and then an hour or two of spirited driving i.e. local area familiarization session. The afternoon should end with coffee and conversation (distribution of giftbags and/or COM award) and then we wrap it up...

So keeping with this, let's agree on a restaurant, driving route and final rendezvous point (starbucks somewhere)...

What's a good place to eat around Tysons with ample parking??

Hope we can hammer out the details soon so I can start my PM blitz, as mentioned I have noted a few more local e90post members that have not been invited/informed/approached yet...
