This is interesting, as I've semi noticed the "cliques" as well.

I just attribute those to Legend owners who have spent face time together. This would be natural as you are more comfortable with people whom you've actually met over someone you haven't, and those that have helped others with various projects with their cars. Doesn't bother me at all.

I'll be the first to admit that I whined the loudest when it came to NALM, as I'm sure some of you this year are finding out about how much time away from work (and $$) you would need to make the trip.

With the distance and time away from work, I was hugely disappointed as I would really like to meet everyone I can as we all share a common interest with our cars.

I don't hold anyone to their "online personality" when I meet them in person. There is only SO MUCH you can convey with black and white text on any forum. What is not conveyed is fill in the blank'ed by the reader.

Personally I think NALM should be a 3-4 day event. I understand that driving 1800-2000 miles you would want to get your money's worth, but in the end I think a day or two less would make up for it down the line in attendance.

The online community has already been built. Wouldn't it be nice to take the same passion and apply it to in person to a point where at times when its just not possible to drive to NALM, that those that could, would fly in just to come hang out with the in person bonds that have been made? (sounds like there has been some work to that in the past)

As far as I'm concerned - it you don't steal from me, or threaten my family - pretty much everything else is water under the bridge when it comes to getting together in person. Lets get to know one another, and have a good time.

I would like to hear other's thoughts on this without getting nasty twords anyone.

thank you in advance

Dave: You're right. Youve whined the loudest.

However many days it is, come whatever works for you.

The cars are now at least 15 years old. The real enthusiats are going to be the only ones left soon. We better stick together if there is to be a future A-L community.

It only took me over 40 years, but I'm learning that "A closed mouth gathers no foot."

dave I feel pretty close to you [with all the stuff we've chatted about and what u still do (yes I know you still do it )]

I'd like to meet more members there's some members I don't ever care to meet because how they carry themselves. Thats why even though online we are a giant group only a few will ALWAYS show up.
