:rofl:

There are five members(I know of or suspect) with considerably(or incredibly) larger collections than mine, but some of them don't let on. All the processed steel from transposed iron ore being concentrated in a few places, as MT collections, might pose a risk to the Earth's axis.  :D

I do still think GA would be the best place to have a meet, but wouldn't rule out Texas, if need be. I would need to rent a conveyance to get to Texas though, since my vehicle is a POS. :ahhh

I hope you guys can make it work.  :tu: I don't think there's been a US meet with more than three members of the forum yet.  :think:

Four.

Ish.

The Maine Meetup in 2008 consisted of myself, J-Sews, Hawkchucker and JoeBW.

The Maryland Meetup had Mr. Whippy, JZMTL and J-Sews as well, and I think someone else may have shown up, but I wasn't there so I couldn't say. 

The Leatherman Factory Tour had J-Sews, MultiMat, Bruce and I can't recall if others went or not.

SHOT '09 in Orlando also had four, but not all at the same time- I was there and so was 665ae, Polish Sumgui and Gator Johnny.

There may be others, I am surprised I remembered that many!   :ahhh

I knew Jie, Bob and Nate had got together at Nate's house, and remembered Matt and the other two in Portland, but the two earlier events were before my time here. Thanks for the correction  :cheers:

Not a correction, merely an addition of information.  Regardless of how you slice it though, they are still significantly less attended than the UK Meetups.  I think even the least well attended UK Meetups have had more than 4 attendees!  :D

Three: Tony, Neil and Gareth (the year I signed up here).

I went the year after, and most years since, and I don't think we had less than four during that period   :cheers:

I haven't been paying much attention to what is going on here, because the National Fair is in town and I lament the ads for it. But, that would have been a good concert. :iagree:

I wonder, is it possible, just maybe... naw, don't think so, worth asking, probably should, OK, Ok.  :whistle:

Dose anyone know what effect having all the weight of those two collections in the same place would have on the Earth's axis? :dunno:

Only way to compensate is to start shipping Tony's Heap ' o ' Rust to land down under!  :pok:

I would be interested if it were in the N end of the SE.  TN would likely be doable.

That is, as long as there's beer.  I go pretty much nowhere without beer.

So I had to drive at the last moment to Chattanooga on Friday and back Yesterday and it wasn't the worst drive I have ever taken?

I have made this drive so many times now that it just feels like a quickie now,maybe not the best way to think of it but since I have to be there anyway a few times a year it seems?

Anyway I think we are lucky to have such free open countryside to play in and I try to look at it that way when I need to too!

There was also an Ironman Triathalon this weekend down there and lets just say the scenery was pretty nice if you like Spandex clad fit Women sweating?
I know I did and do!  :whistle:

Whisky's too rough, champagne costs too much, vodka puts my mouth in gear, the little refrain should help me explain, as a matter of fact I like beer.

How sad is it that I remember the words just off the top of my head...  :facepalm:
