Gauging Interest: DCAWD Nautilus Run??

Post by WRXWagon2112 » Wed May 30, 2007 8:11 pm

I think it only fair to hold off on a full Nautilus Run until Scott gets his car back (the man has been organizing these with vendor support so we should probably show some support ourselves). However, I'm getting kinda antsy to go through it again.

Who would like to join me? We'll have to work out a date, etc., but I first wanted to see how much interest there was. Who's up for it?

I'll have full color maps with directions so no one will get lost.

I want to get my car all sorted out before I go on any runs like that :( Shouldn't be much longer though!

Okay, so it looks like I'll have to sit and stew for a little while longer... :(

I would love to, but can't really. I leave on a trip on the 15th, return the 30th, and move two days later.

It's a country drive through the back roads of Maryland. Name comes from the Nautilus Diner in Crofton, MD - the original starting point for some of the early morning risers.

Let me be the first to emphasize that this is a fun drive through back roads, and not a race by any stretch of the imagination. That, and that my RS is almost more apt at the course because it is lighter and handles better ;)

Ok, so it's changing hands soon, but I don't want to admit that.

Well, interest seemed to dwindle and then the official Nautilus Run occurred on July 1st anyway (once again, very well organized). So this kind died out.

But I'd be up for another un-official run ... just not this coming weekend since I'll be up in Baltimore.

Is there any interest this time?
