Colorado Meet March 3rd or 4th? REVISED
« on: February 17, 2012, 10:03:36 PM »
I'm driving my Eagle to CO in a couple weeks and wondering if the Denver/Springs guys would like to get together either March 3rd or 4th. Maybe something centrally located like Castle Rock? I'm hoping that my work schedule stays the same. The trip to Colorado has been changed twice, but I think this time it is set in stone.

i wish i could but i never know what my work schedule is going to be that and I've never driven her more than 20 miles in a day so i don't really think she will make that long of a trip.

Hopefully your schedule will work out and there's only one way to know if she'll make it.

I'll be slap in the middle of a military exercise.  I'll try once a place/date/time is finalized.

My eagle has a broken leaf spring, and I've got a broken collar bone, so I dont think we'll be able to make it.

I messed up the dates originally. I had 4th or 5th when it should have been 3rd or 4th. I will definitely be arriving on Friday the 2nd as long as there aren't any problems with the Eagle, so let's agree on a date and time. I won't be available Saturday morning but mid afternoon and later will be fine. Sunday, I'm open all day.

Love to make the trip to the other side of the mountains(sounds like a great weekend road trip), but doubt the bird will be licensed by then, so probably not...
