    Glad to help. Though i’d hope by now we all wouldn’t still be imaginary. It was a great time all around meeting great people. Next time more people should come. Some car repair hijinks are like a standard part of every comedy movie so this just seemed perfect.

    I hope we are still going to get discussion/ rant about , of all things, modern gas can design. Yeah i know, is that topic too sexy for OT? Could be. Would have loved to see how the tow truck guy got your truck out of the garage. That must have taken some skill.

    For as toxic and nuts as social media/ internet can be it is still mostly good people being nerds in a million different ways. Put those people in the same place and it will be fun. Em said, and i agree, that everybody seemed just like their on line personality. That is the way it should be ,making the entire weekend fun.Report

      As a former DC area denizen – there are tow companies who specialize in parking garage extraction. Usually with an old fashioned pick up truck rehash with forks as the flatbeds don’t fit. All they do is run garage to garage. Its a weirdly fascinating sub culture of a sub culture.

      Glad everyone had fun, but I have seen one pic (above) of the madness, so I remain unconvinced.Report

    I just wanted an excuse to be rolling down Charles Town Pike and synching up the player so that the Country Roads chorus hits exactly the same time as you cross Key’s Gap.

    (I also didn’t realize your car was actually blue, and not black, until after I came back into the parking lot after going into the grocery store on the way home. This was also after a solid minute or more of me looking for my own car at first)Report

    It was a real treat to be part of it. I was only there for two days and only now are my feet recovered from all the stuff we did. THANK ALL OF YOU!Report
