    Default XLR get together this year !!!!

    Hi All Scott Schmidt here - I would love to have the opportunity to plan an XLR get together here in West Virginia this year. There are a ton of great roads with all sorts of great places to stay. One of my favorites being Snowshoe Mountain Resort. Please send me some feedback. With enough interest I will start the gears going
    for a meeting. Look forward to hearing from as many of you as possible !!
    Regards,
    Scott Schmidt

    Having grown up out towards WVa, I think that would be a great idea & kudos to you for wanting to take on planning it. Doesnít get much better than mountain twisties & views!

    When were you thinking of doing it? Thereís the 15th anniversary get-together in September, youíd probably want to avoid conflicting with that.

    yep, I drive a hybrid - a V8 bred for high speed!

    Spring or early Summer would be good!

    I did some investigating of scenic drives in W.V. last year and there are lots of good options.

    W.V. is fairly close for lots of members here.


    You KNOW what it is!

    Itís in Bowling Green, KY (where the current Corvette plant & where XLRís were made) the last week of September, to celebrate the 15th Anniversary of when XLRís started being manufactured. Hereís a link to info, you should come! (good extra wife escape! - although you could bring her too ): http://www.xlr-net.com/forums/bowlin...nion-15-years/

    Is this the Virginia that puts you in jail for going 30mph over?

    Different Virginia. THIS one puts you in jail for going either 20 over or more than 80 mph (even if that is less than 20 over). Either one automatically means youíre reckless.

    LOL, a good thing to tell people before they make plans to visit the state. I was driving through one of those Virginia's on the way to North Carolina and read a story on a blog about a guy doing weekends in jail for that. I'm pretty sure I was going that fast at least once or twice. LOL. And I had a radar detector which I believe is illegal too?

    Yep, radar detectors are illegal & get confiscated. I think theyíll get shipped back to you, but itís COD & I heard a story once many years ago that they include a brick to increase the shipping cost.

    That said we donít have police with camouflage hiding in the woods running radar (Md) or cameras taking photos of speeders (DC). But donít speed here. Donít even think about it ...
