SSM trip across the Pond

Postby fozzy » Thu Sep 29, 2005 6:25 pm

How about we plan a trip to Europe next spring to meet some of our overseas counterparts. I'm sure we could score a pretty good group price through a travel agent. Waddya say? :D

I'm with Sarah... I'd love to go but it depends on the price. Grad school will start again for me (hopefully) next August so I'm trying to save as much as possible before then. ](*,)

I was already talking to a UK board group about going there in summer. It depends on what time in spring, but I’m game. Remember its wet then.
Original owner of the 100% problem free’02 MCS, chips in paint, pits and dings in windshield, brake dust wheels, scratch on rear passenger side, survivor of 3 hurricanes sitting on the driveway, constant bald tires, I love this thing. Great MINI, but totaled now.

Driving GP 0395 now, WOO HOO!!!

If its in the summer there's a long shot that my wife and I could go. Spring will be Vegas and AMVIV3.
