    I am definitely in. But then, I live there! And being right on the Canada / US border it should be easy for many to attend. And the US greenback is gaining strength again so even better for our American buddies!

      I have never been to Canada or NY so this could be interesting... Not even sure what I would need if I went...

        Clothes, money, passport/photo ID is all you should need. The sights are great! Maybe mp3car could come with a van full of product to sell so canadian's could finally get free shipping. Just a thought SNO

          I'm very interested but a long way out to commit 100% at this point for me.

            Thats why we have a date a long way off so people can plan time around it. Book holiday time, take a couple of sick days added to the actual holiday, spur of the moment, ect. Plus we need to give you enough time to finish your project. Effort=Results SNO

              I'm pretty sure I can make it, it's just certain things can pop up in my work that are non-negotiable to attend. But July is usually not a problem, I should be fine.

              I think you might get better results if it wasn't a long weekend though, especially that one. It's Independance Day in the US, a ton of family events going on that weekend......

              Let's hear from some more NE US and Central-SE Ontario people, what sayeth you??

                Now SNO, that is an EXCELLENT idea. Get a couple of vendors on board. Mo-Co-So? MP3Car? I know there are a couple of vendors in the Southern Ontario area that sell some car pc related stuff. I ordered an M2 from someplace in/around Mississauga.

                Hmmm. Maybe even a swap meet type thing. Bring your gently used, unwanted components. Oh the ideas are starting to flow!

                  Hey Rod. Not sure about Michigan, but in Ontario we have "Enhanced Drivers Licence" which is acceptable to make land crossings between US and Canada. Otherwise, you need a passport (thanks to 9-11).

                    By the way, since I live in Niagara Falls, if any potential attendees have any questions about things around here, feel free to ask and I will do my best to get you an answer.

                      I have never been out of the country even to canada. If I went I would likely bring my daughter as well unless she was at her mothers house during that time which is also likely.


                      We do have an enhanced license here and if I were to go to canada I would likely go via Detroit.

                          Barely 24 hours in with the proposal and 4 likely attendees. That's actually a pretty good start.

                              I'll put in for a "maybe", yes in quotes. Never heard of these extended licenses, but I thought the U.S. had to have passports, even to Canada?

                              At least with the planning this early, if we have to get passports we could budget for it. However, that means myself, the wife, and the son. But, who knows, it could be the first real 'vacation'/'trip' we take as our own family...

                              Edit: I guess I don't have a location set, but in Erie, PA. *Chalk me down for a very light maybe
