Let's make a decision Friday afternoon/evening. If we don't do a drive maybe we could get together for lunch, drop by Topspeed or maybe even hit Andretti's.
I've taken the 3 out on the roads around me (secondary and highway) and they are good for getting somewhere, but no aggressiveness.

A meet up sounds good to me, if everybody is up to it. Andretis or TopSpeed is good also.

I am down for anything guys, but I am not liking the idea of driving my baby on all the damn salt they've put on the roads.

Saturday is not going to be possible for a drive. Too much ice on well traveled roads still. Now add in higher elevation and little traffic = car off into a bank or ravine.

And these Continentals suck on any frozen stuff. Car was getting crazy today on little patches. And now it is very dirty.

Unfortunately I agree really looking forward to a drive. What say everyone on a get together for lunch....Mexican (plenty of places to choose from but there is a La Parilla right of 575 N and Hwy 20. I gotta "hall pass" for the day so anywhere is kosher.
Cheers
Todd

There is also one on Towne Lake Parkway. And it happens to be only 5 minutes from my house.

Or Monterrey on Hwy 92. Not like their food is great but I swear they put grain alcohol in their margaritas.

Walter, are you training Saturday? Need to get the parts to you. And I have a small bonus for you as consolation for the loss of the Helix IC. Not much, just something little.

I agree that the drive is too risky at this point. The roads I can see are still pretty icy, except for I-75. I've been stuck in my dorm room all week with nothing but my lap top and throwing ice at people to entertain me, so I'm down for any kind of meet on Saturday.

Hey Steve... yes I am training, I'll swing by as soon as I get out. Will text before I head over. And don't worry about the FMIC, after you told me about the fitment I felt much better.

Sorry I had yet to get in touch with you, it's been hectic as you know.

I went out on the highway today, and while most of it is dry almost every surface road still had quite a bit of half melted ice everywhere. And an ice patch in the center of my lane on I-85 nearly turned my bumper into a high speed snow plow. So wherever we go we all still need to be careful.... and my car's 20 times dirtier now

So that me and scalbert don't have to duke it out for the location , how about those that are going to head out tomorrow chime in on where they'd like to meet. Sounds like there are a couple of us from the Canton area and the rest scattered around from Woodstock to Smyrna.
I say we meet around noon grab a burrito and rita or meet for a mini drive then burritos and beer.
Too bad the Falcons aren't playing until 8pm

I'm up for about anything, just keep in mind I'm not 21 yet
I'm in Kennesaw, so anywhere you guys decide to meet up it is close enough for me. If you guys know of a killer restaurant I'm in.

I'm down for burritos and a pint! I'm not familiar with the north side because I only work up there so, time and place.

I'll be driving my truck, because I can't get my car out of the subdivision. Too much ice still. But I would like to meet up and go eat something.

Walter is tentatively planning on coming by my place tomorrow and he will be in Woodstock. So anywhere in the area is fine. Heck, even Taco Mac on Hwy 92 might be good, more room and many tables. If so, does 2:00 PM work?

And, GregTheStig, no problem, just bring a good ID.

And where is Jamie? I need to get the oil and filter to her. Walter, you want it and can barter with Jamie.
