Maybe september or later?

Sunday works well for me if we want to do that again. I just need enough notice to take it off of work. What days work for you guys?

Locations? Any ideas of where to meet? Stone mountain was nice, but we can go a little further north to try to get the TN or NC people in on it. This wont be the official thread, I'm just trying to get the ball rolling if enough people are interested.

I still have the grill from the other one, so we can do another BBQ.

I suggest either a few places in Peachtree City or there is always the Varsity in downtown Atlanta. I'm sure there is a bunch of other places too. Just can't think of them at the moment. LOL

I'm not a fan of meeting downtown as parking can be a nightmare (although sundays in the city are not usually too bad), but I'm not familiar enough with the area to say no exactly. How does parking at the V normally work out? I always thought the food was too greasy, but if that's what everyone else wants, I'm down.

The parking at the V is plentiful. Food isnt really any worse the Mcds or Wendys.

anyone feel like competing with the PA camping meet?

we can either do south GA (high falls) or north GA mountains for some decent scenery. Depending on who wants to come.

well, thats my thought kinda. I've been wanting to do a camping trip, but PA is possibly too far for me and the wife. so I figured I'd try the same thing. not really trying to bash, it just sounded like a really good idea. I'm just jealous I can't find a spot near as good as yours. :)

we still may end up making the drive though if no one else here is up for it.

Bump for some more ideas for a meet around late October/ early November (weather= cooler)

---------- Post added at 12:04 PM ---------- Previous post was at 12:03 PM ----------

I say we get this meet situated and made so people have PLENTY of time to get off work or make arrangements

I have plans the weekedns of the 23rd and 30th. so october 16th/17th works well for me. I can do november, but a lot of that stuff at fort mountain closes in november, but there are other locations I'm sure.

That's just me though, what do you guys have set up?
