So Monday the 30th doesn't work for me, I need to be back in MN on Monday morning. I can do the 29th though if anyone wants to.

I should be free all weekend, so whatever works for everyone else.

Also, anyone with FRS radios/walkie talkies should bring them. I have two I can lend out. Driving towards a cop at nearly double the limit to catch up wasn't so much fun last time.

So lets start putting together a meet place/time. I would prefer the late morning since I still have the drive all the way back to MN to do later in the day...

Funny you should say that - my replace brake pads light just came on yesterday. Pretty sure it's the fronts. Anyone know how much material should be left at that point?

Which one is that?

You should have enough brake material to run a quick ride through southern WI. It's not like you're hitting the track or anything.

Park and Ride at hwy 18 and I-94 in Waukesha/Brookfield.

Map

Are we doing another Holy Hill run, or out to the Mississippi?

I figured my brakes would be fine for the drive, I was just wondering if it was a go-order-pads-now sort of thing, or get them later, since I'm not so fond of the previous owner's drilled and slotted rotors anyways.

Sounds good to me, who else is in for this? I'd rather do the Mississippi run since that's on the way home for me.

I'd rather do a Mississippi run too.

How many people are closer to Madison than Milwaukee? If we do a Mississippi run, it might be better to have the Milwaukee people meet at the Park and Ride, and the Madison people meet near Madison, a little after. (or everyone meet in Madison)

Looks like just you and me.

Beau-Beau already lives in that area of the state, so I'll PM him. There also a guy from Stoughton that may be able to come, but not for sure yet.

Looks like the guy from Stoughton can't come, so it's just the three of us. Are we still doing this? If so, where and when are we meeting? (probably somewhere in Madison I'm guessing.)
