Re: (sanatarium)

I have lived in Seattle, and I love it, but if I had reason to live in Phoenix I'd be there in a second. Cali is my home tho, just here for school...<p>I'm not sure on which date works best for me, but the guys who actually live up there choose the best date and I will work my schedule around it. <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/smile.gif" BORDER="0">

Re: (sanatarium)

I like AZ, after being in a retarded winter here where one moment it is nice and sunny and the next there is 6" of snow, AZ sounds even nicer. Seattle has even been getting crazy weather and snow this past winter. And let's just say when it snows in Seattle you should lock your car in the garage because some idiot who doesn't know how to drive in 1/4" of snow is going to plow into your car, lol. <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/wink.gif" BORDER="0">

MAtt can you make sure the days you listed there aren't any major events happening down in Seattle just to prevent long waits at the border crossing. The wait can be as fast as 10mins and as long as 2-3 hours. Thanks

Re: Summer Seattle GTG (mad matt)

Hell yes!!! I can't wait... and if that (and Kyle) is for me <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/biggrin.gif" BORDER="0"> that is just awesome!!! Pretty much all the dates work for me except the 19th of July <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/frown.gif" BORDER="0"> So hopefully that is not the date that ends up getting chosen. It will be a good time to finally get a chance to meet up with everyone. Let's think sunshine and lots of Hot Volvo's!!! <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://********************/smile/emthup.gif" BORDER="0"> <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://********************/smile/emthup.gif" BORDER="0"> <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/biggrin.gif" BORDER="0">

Re: (Vash13)

Awe man... If it is only for S40's that is going, to be a bummer... Does it count that I used to have an S40 <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/smile.gif" BORDER="0">... Oh well I won't go crashing your guys S40 GTG if that is the case... I will respect the class seperation if it is not a Volvo GTG. <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://********************/smile/emthup.gif" BORDER="0">

I think it should be S40s plus Ex S40s who now have S60rs... so at least those people don't look too down to our inferior engines.

I'm glad I won't have the only R there. The rest of the R guys are looking at going on a cruise in late June so I was gonna let any one that couldn't make the cruise to meet up with us for this GTG. <p>Vash, I think all the weekends are clear except July 5th. There will probably be a lot of traffic that Sunday.

Re: Summer Seattle GTG (mad matt)

Hey Gang,<p>Eventhough I'm not an S40/V50 owner, I'd like to invite you guys to meet here at the store that morning. I will be happy to get some coffee and donuts, etc. I'd also like to join you guys on the drive if possible. Our store is located on Highway 99 in North Lynnwood, close to Everett. Please let me know your thoughts.<p>Sincerely,

I can feel the excitement building already... <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/biggrin.gif" BORDER="0"> I think that portion of HWY 99 is going to be pretty Volvo busy on the day of the GTG... <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/biggrin.gif" BORDER="0"> (This will be my official first GTG) I feel like I should bring an ice chest with drinks and some snacks in the boot for pit stops...LOL <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/tongue.gif" BORDER="0">
