Anyone wanna help me get together a meet for Ohio? Definitely not putting a rush on it. Just wanting to try and gain some support then details could be decided from there.

There are some bitching scenic drives in South Eastern Ohio. Might be able to convince the Kentucky and Pennsylvania guys to make it to a meet like that.

GT-Steezy
02-27-2013, 12:48 AM
That is a great idea. Is there any way I can edit the Title? Or even possibly a moderator edit it to include Pennsylvania and Kentucky? I don't want to start another thread and be a total annoyance.

Rural Highway 26 in the Wayne National Forest has a dozen covered bridges along it. It snakes through the foothills of the Appalachians, and sits in the middle a good group of C-Tech peeps in the 3 states.

I still say it would be fun to hit an autocross, but I guess not every one wants to race.

I of course would be down for whatever, and Car_Barn has a good idea on the highway there. Although I don't know the area well enough to know if there is much else to do other then drive (but what else matters?).

I am most favorable for this to happen.
As for me I would like for it to be as soon as possible.
I think I'll ask the state boys how much of a donation it will be for the privilege to exceed the posted speed limit, and make my donation early. That way they wont have to stop me, You think!

Any ways, how can I help?

About 3 and a half hours away. It's off the beaten path near Chilocothe. I still think we should do a meet off I-77 between Cambridge and Marietta on a scenic byway. It puts it roughly 2 hours away from everyone. Columbus would be the best center, but not the best place for a meet in my opinion.

Columbus is just terrible if you want to be anywhere near downtown.

Anybody post on the other celica forums and get any response? If there's still interest, I'd like to start deciding on a date, exact location. Southern Ohio has been suggested a couple times...

Lonestag
03-20-2013, 04:31 PM
Yeah, Columbus isn't the best drivers town, all flat. I'm in for South Eastern Ohio but I don't know the roads that well.

As for Date, I'm booked august 24-25th, Other then that, I prefer later summer, but any time is good.

Late July is good for me and I might bring both All-tracs.
I think we should extend this meet to include Ill.
As a
Ohio native I will personally invite my good friends Chris and Stacey along with Patty the Trac.
All of Southern Ohio is a good driving adventure. But it does get quite warm in the last of July in Ohio.

Is this a county lake or a state lake, because the state lakes require a fishing license!
I have been by serpent mound a couple of times when I tried to fish every lake or creek in south eastern Ohio, but that was some 30 years ago. I think I have the same fishing poll too!?

My Grandson loved it and had a great time and that to me was worth the rain. As for my self I enjoyed the little drive to the lake especially when we got into the winding roads right before we got to the lake. Sounding off under Neath the over passes " The Car Sounds " that I believe all car people love to hear. The caravan when we first took off from the Coulter center, was like throwing a hungry dog a bone.
Grate time with great people.
Hope Tom does the meet up North. I'll have " The Black " going by than.
Eli I made it home without making my donation to the state for driving over the speed limit LOL.

Jack and Grandsons
