I see you say January meeting and “we’ll be on the back patio”...is this an enclosed space or is the weather in Springfield much nicer than what I’m experiencing this week?

Haha, it is enclosed by a tent and they have a couple heaters as well. We've had meetings there before in January and it hasn't been that bad.

I'll be there too but for me it's not just the weather that determines ZJ vs CJ-7, it's also which one is running at the time.

We should have the VA state ones there in a binder.  I'll remind Danille, she has the binder full of them.  $5 each I think.

1 for $5 or 2 for $8, it's a bargain!

Not sure if it will get that deep. But I can bring my drums in case we get into a drum circle. ;)

I think a Jeep wheel/tire will serve well as a drum for our drum circle.  We will have many tones within the circle because of the many different sizes of wheels on our Jeeps.  "I hear the drums echo in the niiiight......the Jeeps hear only whispers of some quiet conversaaaaaation"

I always preferred Rosanna by Toto, but recently they made fun of it as a "Dad Song" in a commercial... guess it fits tho... haha

All I wanna do when I wake up in the morning is see your eyes...Rosanna, Rosanna

What commercial?  And why make fun of it?  That is a good song as well. It is just that people who listened to those songs and enjoyed them are now older with kids (or grown up kids in my case).

I am turning into one of those “old curmudgeons” that don’t like new music. I admit it.

I've always been a fan of "Good Rock" as I put it so some new stuff catches my fancy, but not much... Here's the commercial, it's towards the end... (DirectTV):

I'll absolutely try to attend ... I'm a relatively new member and truly looking for some JEEP fellowship and off-road adventure.  NOVA is a tough place to have a JEEP .. a big curb is about the only excitement we get when it comes to crawling.
