Northwest FL and surrounding areas

I went to a meet a few weekends ago in Orange Beach, AL and there was only m and 1 other xB there (and he was all stock except wheels and his paint was fuct). So, am I to assume I am the only one in this area with a slightly modded xB? There were a lot of people at this meet from all over, so it's not like it wasn't advertised well...

Maybe all the xbers in the state can start to look at having a statewide FL meet up. One centralized location like say......... Orlando. Wud b great to see how many of us are still doin this.

I attempted this a couple of years ago, at which time I got accused of ripping off BITS. Not a lot of people were interested, but then again, a lot of people stopped getting on the forums. So, if you're serious, Id suggest expanding the idea onto Facebook so that everyone can tag and invite FL xB owners easily.

Im in CFL so going to the NW is like a 9 hour drive for me.. But if someone were to get a big xB owners meet together Id definitely try to make it.

To b honest. I'm not the one to organize this type thing. I'd love to b a part of something like this...... but I jus cant lead the cause. I don't even use Facebook for real tho. CFL is close enough to me so if you can organize a small meet the area i'd def b down to show. Don't know how much help I can b but will do what I can to pull something together.

Honestly Im probably not the best source of getting something started either.. Im better at making enemies than friends. But I can put something on Facebook and see what I come up with.

i should. then i can get this giant box out of my room too.....lol

but in all seriousness, its not like it would be a huge deal to make a plan, its not like we are renting a cabin for the weekend, its just a meet for a day. we can figure out where people would be coming from and find out whos the furthest in each direction and find a middle point for them, then whoever is in that middle point area can figure out a fantastic place to meet, a cruise route, and a fabulous dining experience at the end. cake.

Re: Northwest FL and surrounding areas

Well, this sounds like a cool idea. I'm in Pensacola, FL, which is as far west you can go before going into Alabama. But I'm not afraid to make a drive to go to a meet. And if it's not just an xB meet, I may have a few friends that would join in a cruise.
