Sweet.... this place is only a 5 minute drive from here - I might have to go drop in tomorrow. If this ends up being a good place for us to have a meeting then I'm all on top of it.

As for the idea of a meeting, I think this scores bonus points for being close to the freeway and quite a few restaurants (read: bars), not to mention only being a few blocks from the house for me.

Anybody wanna rescape my tank?

Hey... I just started thinking... did Brian use to work at Tongs in Whittier? When I bought my tank last fall he was talking about starting up a large store in this area.

I agree with weekends. The primary reason is there are a number of younger folks that won't be able to drive. I think it will be easier to convince parents to give a ride as needed.

One must also consider commute time on a weekday. While I can be sure to make it up in time on my motorcycle, there's no telling how long it would take in the truck during rush hour. Add to that figuring out a meeting place to carpool and things really get tight. But anything later than 6pm starts to get too late for much off anything...

In rush hour it takes about 20 minutes to get from Irvine to Orange, as a marker. It isn't fun, and I'm sure folks taking freeways like the 55 will have it even worse.

Doesn't sound nice. Do you take the 73? I'm sure the 73 to the 55 would save you a lot of headaches.

No, 133 to 5N. I work close to the 5. so it's not as bad as it could be.

Since I moved from Irvine to LA, I have to vote for a weekend meet.

I agree with you John P., that rimless, curved corner tank is nice.
