    Have had a few inquiries as to a hotel, too. Here are a few options that I Googled for prices:

    Super 8
    3330 S. Main
    I-81 Exit 243
    Harrisonburg, VA 22801
    (540) 433-8888
    Looks like about $55/night

    Holiday Inn Express (right across the street from Super 8)
    3325 S. Main
    Harrisonburg, VA 22801
    (540) 433-9999
    Looks like about $105/night

    these are the closest to the shop, but another 5 miles north, still in Harrisonburg, there are a lot of other options as well. Camp sites are available at Natural Chimneys and others around if someone wants to brave the cold.

    I hope the sd33t comes as that saves me some gas,as he will pick me up and it saves me from having to do it later without as much help.

    If not, Jeff...Talk to Howie about bringing one to the M&G two weeks later. I feel certain he'd have one.

    The firewood is stacked inside where it's dry.
    The floors are swept.
    The tools are cleaned and put away.
    The lights have all been checked.

    I think we're ready.

    The Diesel swap is looking more and more UNlikely. Looks like a pretty laid back "wrench" day...not many projects goin' on. I can make a list of stuff y'all can do to MY Scouts if you want...:tt2:

    Have you reached out to Doug Scott? I bet he has one. Surely one would fit in an Infiniti :oops:

    As a member of the North Baltimore contingent, I'd like to know is there is a caravan forming?
    Also what overnight plans have been made?
    I haven't decided to stay the night but may.

    As the Friday folks get in the area...call my cell and make sure where I am at. I may stay at work late and hang around in there, or I may go up to the barn and mess around. If you call, I can tell you where I am at. I believe most everyone has my 540 cell 478 number 5136.

    I'll have to confirm with him, but last I checked Stu and I were going to carpool. I'm sure "the more, the merrier" would apply. :yes:

    Its been nice for 2 weeks,starting tonight into friday,ice and atleast 4 inches of snow,the travelall was the first I was thinking of driving,now it might be the scout,but Iam afraid of ******* parts driving that far,but I can hear the travelall rusting from the salt,and its mountains most of the way,and the fiberglass one is to light and needs tires.I guess I will decide in the am
