    confusticate and confound this overcast weather...
    I'll probably park a ways away from the Five Guys proper (it's in a corner of the shopping center that's anchored by the Walmart) so we can congregate for trades and sales (if the weather permits)...if you like, look for the dark blue pickup truck with a Decepticon magnet on the tailgate. There shouldn't be another vehicle fitting that description around, but if there is it's probably one of us, too. I might even be in the truck taking care of a minor issue since there's a car parts store in the same shopping center.

    Tallish white guy, short hair, black RoTF Devastator t-shirt. I'll keep eyes peeled for people who look like they're looking for kindred spirits.

    Good call Might Gaine (knew I was forgetting something)! I think you can get directions from the Five Guys website...or use whatever mapping site works best.

    It was a pleasure meeting everybody, sharing some grub, and shooting the breeze. Pretty swell group of guys all told with varying backgrounds and interests, which makes for dynamic conversation. We will have to do this again sometime...September looks grim for me, but from here it looks like I'm free (or free with child) 9/5, 9/19, and 9/25.
    Thanks to Might Gaine for the neat Head Robots...and Kam, I'm glad Skywarp found a good home.

    It's a great start for the Maryland group. 6 guys total is pretty good. Just have to pass the word out to get more guys to come. Regardless or not, it's still a good group. Nice meeting you all. Glad to see you again Might Gaine (and your best man) and thanks for the snake! Thanks for taking that Galvatron off my hands, whoamidri!

    Everybody should thank Nez for starting and running the process. You guys should give him a hand in organizing and recruiting more folks. Plan the next date if you guy can or not. I foresee myself MIA in the next couple of months or so due to graduate school but should be free for a break or two.

    Am I the last person to get back? Guess I was too busy at the TRU and target. Finally got Seaspray. If you guys stop by that TRU, keep me updated on the discount prices. 10% isn't much but 50% would be better. :)

    We met at Columbia, MD today. It was a nice middle point for everybody. It would be about an hour drive for you but we can try moving it a little bit more south to better suit you. Will depend on who decides to come next time. Meeting area is very flexible! It may be better suited for all the DC fans.

    Here's the thread about the convention I mentioned today. The theme is GI Joe vs Transformers...might be a crapshoot, might be worthwhile. I'll keep my eyes on it.

    Yeah, I took a good look at that just now. Looks very very cool but I have a work related conference in Baltimore that weekend. Not sure if I can escape to check it out. :(

    It's very close to that but is just a little different. Possibly another figure from the same line?
    I posted pic in the toy discussion thread if you wanna get a look. Thanks again for the help

    And thanks Nez for organizing the get together today!
