So I don't spend any time around here any more with working in upstate NY, and just not having time for anything.

Yesterday I met up with a friend from PA and we decided to cruise down to bimmerfest east in Aberdeen, MA.

During one of the cruise stops at a gas station- I was inside eating some nasty chicken, and asked the guy across from me if he had been to Chicago since his car had MN plates and looked really familiar to me.

Then this dude next to me asks if I owned a red e30 in Chicago, since he had overheard me... and it was Aircooled! Some wild ass shit.

nice meeting you man.

Gas station chicken? Really?
Were all of you part of the same cruise going to the same meet?

Still the only person on here I've met IRL is Shandy, and I did so ON the grid at Lime Rock a few weeks ago.

I'd like to note there is a difference between "wants" and "can afford to" in my case.

But why get chicken at a gas station when on a cruise there are always better options? I didn't know there was such a thing existed it sounds repulsive. The worms episode of Futurama comes to mind.

Yup. My last vacation was in 2007 for my honeymoon, and that was camping. I haven't been on a real "hotel" vacation since I took a girl to Tofino in 2001.

It was totally wild. Was not expecting to meet a DS member in a 30 car caravan going to bimmerfest. A few pics.







Of course Hex doesn't roll in any old bavarian jalopy. A stanceworks e36 no less.



I was checking out the car after it rolled up and he pulls out a set of red brake fans out of the trunk and asks the crowd if anyone knew what they were, only I did and only because of Hex's brake fans. It occurred to me this person was a BBS whore. This was the first flag.

Of course red brake fans wouldn't look good so they were painted in the parking lot.




There were some mint BBS caps in the trunk as well.




Here's our caravan.



I'm in the bottom row with the bmw shirt, hex is in the red shirt on the bottom row.

After getting into Maryland we stopped at some slum bum gas station, which was great because I really had to go and was overdue to munch on something. I just got done paying for my food and I sat down to eat my granola bar and I saw these two stanceworks boys eating chicken out of cardboard boxes. Someone said something about being in Chicago, I thought hex was from chicago. I've seen pics of hex around here and this guy resembled him to a certain point. I figured I'd ask him about one of his previous cars, I had trouble deciding which one, and lo and behold it turned out to be him. I never got to catch up with him at the show, I saw the car but not him. I should have cracked some more DS jokes but oh well. It was a great show, and I'll prolly see him next year. Nice to meet you as well.

I'm reading your post here totally laughing about the brakefan pit stop. Good pics too!

Too bad we couldn't chat (I had some hard stancing to do)... but I'll be at H2Oi so we should definitely catch up man.
