The metro ny meet thread

This thread is dedicated to building a bi-weekly/weekly meet of local Jeepers.

Picking up where this thread left off, we are looking to get some local people together for a "more than monthly" commiseration of all things Jeeps.

If you drive a Jeep, live in NYC, and want to find:
- people who understand The Wrangler Struggle
- people to talk over jeep tech with
- people to help with jeep fixes/installs/upgrades
- people to hit trails with
then you should try this meet.

Details:

- Wednesday evenings, 7:30

- Flushing Meadows park. The Parking lot EAST of the Queens Museum. GPS coordinates: 40.744592, -73.846118

I will be there today and next Wednesday to get this bird off the ground.

In the future I will BUMP this thread prior to meet days as a reminder.
If you are even a little interested or think you will be at some point, subscribe to this thread for updates.

Feel free to PM me for info.

Oh man that sucks. DaJig is right, we literally pulled out of the lot at 8:20.

Next week, same deal, except the lot by the museum was PACKED so we have a new spot just on the other side of the development, right on Flushing Bay Promenade.

New Coordinates are: 40.760972, -73.846597


A FEW THINGS:

- SUBSCRIBE to this thread for updates.

- For anyone looking to make it last minute next Wednesday shoot a PM to either me or DaJigIsUp.

- Want to join in on a small-group trail ride/cleanup?
Let's put names to faces next week and make plans. There are a few spots within 1:30 or so of the city that are fun for newbies/stock rigs that also feature more challenging terrain for those with more experience/built Jeeps.

- If anyone needs a hand with a fix or install, or just needs a safe place to put the jeep on stands for some work:
I'm thinking of hosting a wrenching day at my shop.
I have a private, lockable lot with electricity, compressed air, bathroom, music and a fridge.
BYO tools/refreshments/etc.
Just gauging interest, let me know if you guys would be down for something like that.

Right on man.
I'll send a reminder next week.
I'd be interested to hear your opinions so far on those metalcloak joints.

I checked out the lot today to see what the space was like with the US Open going on...

It's a whole lot better than the other location.
The lot is open and has plenty space at the far, northeastern end. Great view of the Bay as well.

Directions would be confusing so GPS is the best bet.

The coordinates are 40.762314, -73.844703

Remember to SUBSCRIBE to this thread for updates!

Feel free to PM me if you are running a little late, have trouble finding the place, etc.

See y'all there!

UPDATE:
There are parking attendants at the main entrance collecting money for parking for the Mets game.
I told the guy in charge whats up with the meet and he let me through. Im parked all the way in the back, past all the kids directing parking. The far north east tip.
The gate over here is now open if you want to skip the line to the main entrance.

Better turnout last night- good times.
Between the US open and the Mets game, getting into the lot was a challenge, we'll have to look out for that in the future.
Nice talking with you guys, and seeing what's going on with your Jeeps.

I see mine....

This weather is perfect we need to get a trail run going soon.

I have a few places in mind within 1.5-2 hours from the city.

My schedule is pretty packed but Sunday Sept 20 looks good.

Just putting it out there...

CALLED ON ACCOUNT OF RAIN.

Can't say I'm too upset, I was out the door to work at 5am today...

See you guys the 16th, I'm hoping to have a lot of work done to the Jeep to show off by then.
