Or is there a good place to stop along the way that we could have a fire and cook some hot dogs for supper or something???

I don't know.... why don't we try to do both... maybe just shorten the drive??

I think i would rather do that!!

New to the form and would love to meet everyone. Unfortunately my time is limited. I am up at a course in Edmonton that weekend, but ca not spend the day driving around with you. Is it possible to maybe do the weiner roast AFTER the drive? I might be free by then ... just a thought.

Okay so it looks like we are doing the drive thing. Richard have you ever done both? Problem would be finding the spot to roast don't ya think? Setting up and then roasting would take a couple of hours unless we make it really quick. We could bring a gas burner so no waiting to get a fire going. Hmm maybe we can do that.

Actually my neighbour chopped down a tree earlier this summer so maybe I can bum some from him. I had a bunch of cedar crap and other pieces of 2x4 I was using but now all gone up in smoke.

By the way, Richard, did you get my email?

Okay sounds good. Lets lock in the date for October 5, 2002.

If we are doing the cookout thing we would also need a few things least of which is a comitment from the people coming. That way we can assign people to bring the fixings and stuff so one person if not swamped with having to get everything. I think we can then divvy (spelling?) up the cost and spread it among all who are there. Does that sound fair to everyone?

Once again I must ask-request-beg that the cookout be at a time/place that I may be able to make it. I realize the universe does not revolve around me alone, but I would really like to meet you guys/gals and see you cars. I was unfortunately not able to meet anyone at the Red Deer meet (I arrived just as everyone was rolling off the lot and heading to Sylvan) but would really like to make it out this time! At this time I don't know what times I will be available, but if you were to hold the cook-out somewhere in/around Edmonton I should be able to make it.

Thanks again, I hope I can make it.

Oh, a little about my car:

2002 Midnight blue Protege 5
Loaded 5-speed w/ moonroof
Tinted rear windows
Front deflector

That's it for now, but would really like to add the leather seats and a few other things to make this a great car - not that it isn't already!

Hey Doug, when next are you up to Edmonton? We could always get together with some of the other guys and have a mini meet over coffee or something. I know several of the other guys are up for that. In fact two of the otehr guys who just so happen to also have bue P5s would come. They were not in Red Deer as both had wedding commitments, one was playing music at one and the other guy was getting married. Pretty flimsy excuses if you ask me .

Thanks for the reply Chris! I will be up in Edmonton that weekend (October 4-6th) for a course so if I can't manage to make it out to the drive/BBQ with all of you, would anyone be able to meet Sunday evening somewhere? If it is at all possible, I would still like to make it out to the BBQ. I know I can't make the drive. I am really looking forward to getting some ideas for my car, and seeing everything in living colour makes so much more sense.

Thanks again everyone!

Hey, Richard

As for the police, there's RCMP, Parkland County Mountie, and Band Police...and as many years as the Miata club has been using this route...we've never seen one. There's always a first...but let's keep our fingers crossed. You can run and hide anytime you like, however, don't get lost.
Yeah, with my luck it would be a police convention on the roads when we are going through

Okay, I'm in. I'll also bring a friend since my wife will be out of town. She was not happy when I told her I was going on a trip as she loves this stuff. Oh wel, I'll have to make it up to her. I think she believed me when I said it was not a girlfriend . My friend just bought a new Focus so maybe he'll see how much fun this is and maybe his next one will be a Mazda.

So let's get some commitment here as we should also start assigning the responsibility for bringing stuff.

I'll bring some wood for the fire, hmmm will have to look at getting some straps to hold it down in the back. Richard, I know some parks don't allow you to bring in wood, is that park like that?

Here is a list of what I think we need:

Wood, fire starting stuff
Smokies/hot dogs
Doggie holding stuff (skewers)
Ketchup, mustard, relish, onions
Napkins, paper plates
Drinks (soft), coolers

If we can keep it simple then we can do the stuff quickly and be on our way.

Potato salad too or chips. Chips probably better since don't have to worry about salmonella.
