Stopping in PA Aug 24th

So I am making a drive out to Jersey from CO at the end of August and figured that since I just slapped the JRSC on the car I should make a stop at McNews to get tuned.

I am planning on getting into the Carlisle, PA area sometime on the eve of the 23rd and will be making plans to hit the dyno on the 24th sometime later today.

Just wondering if anyone is going to be in the area and would like to meet up for a short bit...maybe a short get together, grab some chew and BS before I make the trip to South Jersey. Be cool to meet some more people from the boards.

Well if you are headed to South Jersey, then you will probaly be passing by Philly, in which case you should stop by. I should be around that Friday. BTW whats out in jersey that you'd be making the trip for?

how long I am there depends on what time they get me in, I guess. Would like to leave not too late so I am in South Jersey by 10pm or 11ish.

Tua - I am originally from Egg Harbor Township / Somers Point area. Born and raised till I was 20. My family and friends are there and my mom and step dad are in Tuckerton area. So I am coming out to hang for a few weeks...chill on the boat, go surf, do some fishing and play a ton of mini-golf, lol.

Love it out here, but I miss the coast.

sweet. I will keep things up to date as I get nearer to my trip. If anyone wants to meet up, that would def. be cool. I have a few others I may meet in Jersey from an SVT forum and who knows, I might even hit up Atco for a few runs while I am down there. Nothing like driving at sea level....7250 ft. puts a serious hurtin on your car.

You're stopping in Carlisle? That's about 15-20 miles from my house. I work in Carlisle. (Production work full-time [electronics components], and Advance Auto Parts in Carlisle part-time evenings) The morning of the 24th would be fine w/ me. Let me know when/ where you want to meet up in Carlisle. Its always cool to meet someone new.

I am scheduled to get on the dyno Friday morning @ 9am. If you are interested in stopping by McNews, I will be there in the AM and probably be leaving there around noon'ish. It looks like they are right outside of Carlisle, so I will probably get a room somewhere around that area late thursday night.

After I roll out of there, I will start making my way to South Jersey. If any of you in the Philly area want to meet up, I would be down for a pit stop as well. Be good to stretch the legs before the last length home. Picking a specific time might be a lil bit of a pain, but I should be able to hit a certain window...I can always google the amount of time from Carlisle > Philly. Just gotta pick a spot that we can meet up....maybe grab some food and a

well I am sitting in York, PA tonight. Got to Carlisle, where I thought I would get a room near I-70, and there is a big ol' corvette show going on this weekend. Rooms were expensive and filling up fast. That place was pretty crowded and the locals looked a little pissed about all the traffic in their lil town. Nice area though.

Ate at a new dinner right on the north of downtown, guess it just opened, and was servved by a cutie lil blonde girl with the best southern accent. :) Then went looking for McNews and kept on going down to York to find a cheaper room.

Tuning is at 9am tomorrow and who knows when I will be done...looking like maybe noon? 02zx3 - if you are up to it, you should swing by McNews in Dillsburg. Short trip for ya.

All else, Google is telling me about 2 hrs from york to philly...looks like I will be rolling through philly sometime in the later afternoon. I am up for stopping as well, to say hi. Just PM me and I will keep a check on my messages.
