Ah...10:30am, much better. I actually stayed in NYC Sat night so I wouldn't have to drive up from the philly area Sunday morning, only to find rain when I woke up Sunday. Oh well...

I'm planning on the 15th, so put me down.

Im back in for the 15th. I did meet Silver_Lana and had a nice bruch with he and his wife. If its a beautiful sunny day you may have an issue with parking at the Cold Springs depot as you are getting into their season.

So far I have 5 of us confirmed. All of you should have gotten my e-mail response in reply to yours, with my cell phone. I will make calls that Saturday to firm up our plans (lets hope for nice weather and a good showing). As far as parking in Cold Springs, parking is going to be a challenge, however we can probably find a spot by the train station.

i CANNOT believe you guys decide to cancel at 8:30AM the day of the meet. WTF.
I drove all that way and no one was there except for 1BADSLK. we fcking drove up to Poughkeepsie anyway to see if you guys might have left early. We had a great time and an excellent lunch. The day was perfect, 75 degrees and sunny. You guys missed out. Pics are below.

Great pictures! You were right in my backyard. The picture behind the walmart truck is the exit I get off at everyday to take the train at Peekskill to go to work in Mahnattan. The next picture I believe is at the peekskill motor which has Henrys restaurant. Great view of the hudson from there. Hope to see you on the 15th. I was there on the 1st with Silver-lana, we must have just missed you. Mine is a 2003 SLK 230 so I know Im an interloper with my old SLK.
