I forgot to mention int, but I'm in.

Ernie,

Jason just suggested this event for our next AZ 914 breakfast. It sounds like you've done a good job so far. So I'll email the link to this posting to all the contacts I have (a couple have already posted), then let you manage it from there.

Let me know if there is anything you need our help with. You can contact either myself or Greg Robbins.

I would be willing to arrange a convoy of the S. AZ and Phoenix teeners North to Williams.

Regards,

Cool!! The more, the merrier!

I'm really delighted at the interest in this and I'm really looking forward to seeing you all!

BTW, for those coming up from Phoenix, Ash Fork is right at the intersection of Hwy 89 and I-40 so if you want to come North through Prescott you'll be heading right into Ash Fork.

I still haven't heard back from the diner in Ash Fork, but there's still time to arrange the breakfast.

Sounds like the caravan could be a good idea for you - just get behind a 914 and follow along!

I just need to make reservations in Ash Fork or Williams.

There is more to choose from in Williams - lots of Motels there because it's the location of the Grand Canyon Railway.

Plenty of good hotels in Williams (and pretty area too!). Good restaurants also....Ash Fork is kinda the pits from my experience. Last time I was thru there, the truck stop might be ok, but anything else...........Actually, the last time I stopped there was before they built I40 bypass.

AVI, an indian gaming venture, is fine. Nice rooms for those that want to stay....about 12 miles below Laughlin on the on the west side of the river (95. Have been there about twice. You can support reconcillation by gambling there.

Gonna try...not sure..but will give it the ol' college try!

Recommend, start in Williams..run I40 to Ash Fork and then pick up Rt 66.

Just give the keys to the RS to Lauren. She can bring Liz as a navigator.
We'll make sure they don't get into any trouble. (IMG:http://www.914world.com/bbs2/html/emoticons/happy11.gif)

I got a call from the diner in Ash Fork today and it sounds like it will be ok so that's officially the site for breakfast. I've modified the earlier post to put in the address and a link to the Dexonline listing where you can get a map if you like.

The lady at the diner was very pleasant. She said they had just finished remodeling. I mentioned getting separate checks for folks to make it easier for paying and she said no problem.

So who else is coming that we haven't heard from yet? Speak up gang!

It looks like Ernie has vanished into thin air. (IMG:http://www.914world.com/bbs2/html/emoticons/wacko.gif)
Anyway, back to the business at hand.
Good news on the breakfast confirmation in Ash Fork. (IMG:http://www.914world.com/bbs2/html/emoticons/clap.gif)
Now about dinner (IMG:http://www.914world.com/bbs2/html/emoticons/chowtime.gif)
In an earlier post you said -

The Avi has a good reputation, and from the web site it looks like the buffet would make a great dinner place

I am not a big buffet fan. (IMG:http://www.914world.com/bbs2/html/emoticons/barf.gif) What about the Moonshadow Grille at the Avi? After a long day on the road I would like to be served a nice meal instead of having to stand in a buffet line. I can call now and make a tennative reservation and then give them the final count on the morning of the event. How many people do you expect we will have? 10? 20? What would be a good time to shoot for? 8:00?

I'm fine either way. I thought of the buffet as easy because of it's flexibility, but a sit-down meal sounds good too. One of the things that I liked about the place is the options that it gives us.

If we can get a reservation it would work great. Maybe we call from the road to pin down the time once we see how the day is going, but 8 sounds like the latest that I'd like it to be.

I'll call 'em tomorrow and tell them 10-20 peeps at 7-8 o'clock and see what they say.
We can change it later depending on what everybody else wants to do.

P.S. - What was your motivation for the name change?

I wanted to do something a little more creative than just my name. I've had ThinAir in mind for awhile since Flagstaff is at 7,000 feet. I was thinking of trying to put together a VW/Porsche group for Northern Arizona and calling it "Thin Air" for the altitude and the air-cooled cars.

Hah...got ya whipped...I'm at 7200 feet and I'm going for "Rarified Air" (IMG:http://www.914world.com/bbs2/html/emoticons/biggrin.gif)

Now to get this straight for those of us coming from CA..I would assume a hotel in Williams on Friday Nite (10th) and a stay at AVI (or one of the Lauglin Hotels) on Sat Nite(11th) and we make a run for the border on the 12th. Correct?

You are on your own for plans on the 10th and 12th. I will prolly get a hotel in Williams on the 10th. I doubt I will stay over on Saturday night. It is just a few hours from the Avi to back home.

Yup, I'll stay at AVI unless there's a big party at Vegas Racer's place (IMG:http://www.914world.com/bbs2/html/emoticons/biggrin.gif)

Scratch the idea of dinner at the Moonshadow Grille. It is a small room with a small kitchen. They said they would not accept a reservation for a group of 20 people at prime time on a Saturday night. (IMG:http://www.914world.com/bbs2/html/emoticons/mad.gif) They said they could get us in at 5:30 and offer only a choice of Prime Rib or Chicken. I said 'no thanks'.

Looks like we are gonna be crashing the buffet.

I figure this trip will be as good as any to test the new clutch. I got a couple of weeks between now and then to get the work done. I have heard many of you guys say that "it's only four bolts to drop the engine and transmission" so I figure I have got to give it a shot. Having a trip like this on the schedule gives me even more incentive. That plus the parts have mostly arrived in the last few days. The Avi Casino is about a mile from my Mother's house so I can throw in a visit to see her as well. Count me in to the best of my abilities.
