Sounds good, that spot by the Capitol sounds like a great place for a photo op!

Could we do a quick roll call to confirm that this date is still a good one for those who are involved so far, and check who is planning to come?

From the first post, it looks like we have:
Chad (chad1966)
Anders (anders)
George (v8volvo)
Ryan Reich via VWDiesel

Sounded like RollinCole was a maybe as well, depending on sorting out some problems -- any updates on that? Would be great to have you with us, since Chad and Anders are both in 240s and my 700 series is currently the lone representative... Any others?

Also, one thought: we originally planned our route to make it easily accessible if some members from Oregon were interested, but so far it looks like those of us who are planning to be involved are all coming from the Puget Sound area. If we don't end up getting any commitments from folks further south, perhaps we will want to consider rethinking our route again so that we don't have to slog back up I-5 from Longview for an hour at the end?

One idea for an option, if we do decide to stay further north: we could still meet up Olympia and start from there, as currently planned, and then could cruise out along scenic Hwy 101 up towards Port Townsend and have lunch there. From there we could either head back south, or explore more around the Olympic Peninsula, depending on timing and desires. Might make it a little easier and keep us off the major freeways, which I think could be more fun if it's possible. What do you all think about that, assuming our group continues to be coming from around here mostly?

Also, just an early heads-up, the date for the IPD Garage Sale has been announced and is May 16th -- we should keep that on the calendar too as another time to meet up!

Well there is good news and bad news. I will be attending but not with my 244. Cole aka rollincole will not be attending in the 764. I'm the current owner of the 764 and will be attending the cruise with that. I would love to attend in my 244 but have not got a chance to install the fresh engine. Good news is, you won't be the only 7xx car there George! Chad might be the only 240 though..

Interesting news, sounds like some car swapping has been going on...

I'll be there in the 745, and Dan may come with his 244 TD as well, so we might have two 200s and two 700s (or more if other folks come too). Sounds like it could be an even mix.

So far there is nobody committed that I know of coming from Portland. I started a Facebook event and there is somebody coming Vancouver BC. So I like the idea of Olympia to Port Townsendish area for lunch. Sucks for Anders though since he lives in Chimicum. But we an discuss more even the morning of the event. I think as long as we have a 2-3 routes planned we can come to a conclusion soon enough.

So the person joining from BC, will it be a Volvo or VW?

He is in a VW. The only cars coming with volvos that I know of are from the D24t website.

Sounds good. We can meet up in Olympia and decide on a direction based on who is there and what everyone's preferences are.

Looking like I may need to be back in Seattle by afternoon -- does the 9:00 start time still work for y'all? I think that would give us plenty of time to link up, have a leisurely cruise with lunch in the middle, and be headed home by early afternoon, if that sounds OK to the rest of you.

Guys, I'm bummed to report that this weekend is looking increasingly complicated for me, and my time on Sunday is starting to be a little limited. It turns out I need to make a trip to Portland this afternoon until Saturday, and will need to be up near Bellingham on Sunday afternoon, so Sunday morning is squeezed and I'd probably only be able to join for part of it.

It also looks like the weather has a good chance of being wet on Sunday, which might make our plans and photo ops a little less fun.

Here's another idea. The IPD Garage Sale is coming up in about three weeks, on Saturday May 16, in Portland and goes only until 2 or 3 PM. If you guys are planning on going to it (I definitely am), would it make more sense to do our cruise either on the way down or on the way back from that event? We could make a trip out to Mt. Hood then, as one interesting option.

Or, alternatively, would you be up for rescheduling a more local cruise for sometime in May? Perhaps we'd be able to draw in a bigger group then, too.

Or, if this Sunday is still the best preference for y'all, I can meet you for part of the time.

Sorry to have these conflicts come up at the last minute -- I didn't anticipate this weekend being as busy as it has become. Let me know what you all think.
