No, I will be hosting the GeoPalooza East (Hope to see you there) like always. A couple members mentioned flying me out there to Reno, but I doubt I can do all that with my busy work schedule.

This sounds pretty interesting, I might try to go. Any other local members going to attend? maybe we could arrange a cruise down to Reno.

It would be great if some TeamSwift guys could attend. I was offered an airline ticket to make a special appearance, but my work schedule will not allow this :(

Looks like a lot of people going to Reno so far though :vibe:

I say Hell Yeah!! Count Me in on the Reno Nevada GeoPalooza West. I'll be there. Johnny, I can't wait to meet ya! Guys, keep your eyes peeled for my Dark Medium Quasar Blue Metallic '90 4Door Geo Metro. I'm coming up the U.S.395 from Geo Bashing Country: Encino California (Communist State!!) San Fernando Valley. I'll see you there. However, being a former Nevada Resident-I lived for a while in Winnemucca-I must warn you that Not all of Nevada is Geo Metro Friendly. For Example, I have had a few Bad Experiences there in two Nevada towns. (Don't worry, Reno/Sparks is okay.) A word to the wise regarding our Geo Metros: Don't venture into Yerington and Ely (Pronounced Properly, rhymes with JULY-Not Greeley, sorry!) These two Nevada Towns are Very Geo Metro Unfriendly and the Local Police and the NHP Frown on our Cars for No Valid Reason. The Nevada Highway Patrol and the Lyon County Sheriffs and the Yerington Police Department are just as Bad as the California Highway Patrol!! So to all my fellow Geo Metro and Chevy Sprint and Suzuki Swift Friends out there please be on the lookout and be on your Guard at all times. Stay out of Yerington and Ely (E-Lie!) Also, Winnemucca and Tonopah are strict Speed traps too. Winnemucca is a Well Known Party town and the Winnemucca Police and Humboldt County Sheriffs patrol it Very Dilligently. Tonopah: it's just a Speed Trap and the Nye County Sheriffs will nail ya too. So let this be of fair warning-I'm not trying to scare anybody, just be careful. The Cops out west Don't like Geo Metros, I say it's more of a Prejudiced thing on the Cops' part. Just be on the lookout and on your Guard, Guys. This said, Let's have a Great Time at Rancho San Rafael Park! I'll See Ya there! Richard '90 Metro.
Richard '90 Metro.

Hmm, I may be in Las Vegas around that time. I would be prime candidate for the distance award if I rolled up in my swift...May have to keep a set of 3.52's for that trip!
