Please make up your mind ASAP. I need to book a room and also figure out timing to get back home on the 20th.

As mentioned elsewhere, just pick a day and time (now that you have picked a place) and tell people to show up.

For those that did not read the other thread, I'm picking up the tab for our host and the first five other OCers who show up.

stay safe.

i unfortunately, will miss the hallowed event 'this month' due to previous engagement(s) elsewhere.

best of luck on wrangling in a gaggle of folk in the area...'specially since skid is paying.

Room booked. Arriving late afternoon/evening 7/18. I'm the guy that looks like Santa with a bad attitude/Jerry Garcia before he died/homeless guy (pick one) with a cane.

Anybody wanting to do a pop-up get-together that evening send me a PM.


edit to add:

Just went to www.yelp.com and found a bunch of interesting places in the $$ rating pages (all 6 of them). Several are chains that are known nationally as gun-friendly or at least gun tolerant. Others are local that look interesting. I'm extending my offer to pick up the tab for the first five (5) who PM me about a Saturday get-together, as well as pay at Micky D's on Sunday.

Several good prospects for steak and Asian if anybody needs incentive.

stay safe.

Unlike some yahoos from the Tar Heel State I know enough to put at least overhauls on over my union suit.

(Is it OK to say "union" down there?)

stay safe.

Checked at the border but saw nothing/nobody waiting for me. Kept going to the rest area but nobody there either. Guess NC will just have to hope that the cooties don't spread.

stay safe.

Just a reminder, I scheduled for Sunday, the 19th between 1500 and 1700 hours. It is only the 18th at 1516 hours.
No kidding. The reason I came down today is to be sure I don't miss the big event.

I've told you how to recognize me. Will you be wearing a special flower? Or just your post apocalyptic costume? Don't forget to bring the gauge you have talked about carrying.
stay safe.

Yep, just bc cruiser. I didnt see any virginia plates around when I checked the handicapped area at the other entrance opposite of the dive through. It was just cruiser with his bike and the cars all had nc plates. Left around 1747 hours....noone else open carrying except cruiser with his 1911 came. Guess I may have to pick a better location next month....
