So I'm back from Tom (aka Michael Moore)'s fabulous meet in Cincinnati, and after 30 hours without any sleep, I was pretty much wiped.
Trip started out from my place in Toronto at 10:00PM Friday night, met up with Shawn (Cokey11) at 2:00AM, met Brent (Cribrocks) at the border at 3:00AM, met Doug (Dudley) at 4:00PM, and we cruised down to Tom's together, reaching at 7:30AM or so.
Around 6:00AM-ish I was feeling a bit queasy and the caffeine had gotten to me, so I pulled out of the 68-mph caravan and flew down the last hour solo doing ~90-100mph the whole way. Somewhere along the line I was pacing a cherry red, debadged ES with glossy mirrors driven by a skinny white guy whom I initially thought might be Captain Morgan, but it wasn't.
Got to Tom's meet, had a lot of fun chilling with the guys. The majority of them there were 300M Club guys, and there were only a few of our guys there at first. Had a lot of fun, Tom's place is a good place for a meet; especially with the random toilet in the middle of the garage!
Left from there around 6:00PM, stopped to have dinner at Olive Garden with my older brother in Detroit, got home around 1:30AM.
Thanks for everything, including leading me down there, all the car advice as usual, putting up with my random questions every 5 seconds, etcetera.
Had a lot of fun, lots of fun meeting you and Gale again! Thanks for lending me the screwdriver.
Douglas Dear (Dudley):
Thanks for all the laughs, letting me stare at your nice ass end (Custom taillights) for a long time on that road, fixing my pillars when I least expected it, and everything else.
Uncle Tom (Shadowvox6):
Thanks for hosting an awesome meet; helped me meet a lot of new people.
Thanks so much for helping install my new Faze Morpher even though you were halfway through a timing belt. Hope your car is driving a lot better now!
Very nice meeting you, can't wait for your new rear seat mod!
Hope that dash swap went well... and nice to meet your girlfriend as well...
Thanks for putting up with my silly questions and for not ripping into me like Tom does...lol
Everyone else: Sorry if I forgot to mention you; thanks for everything and it was a pleasure meeting and spending time with you all!
On to the pictures:
