  • Midwesterners? Des Moines/Ames IA/Twin Cities MN?

    Just curious about the possibility of a carputer meet in the midwest.

    Currently I'm a student at Iowa State in Ames (ISU) which is about 30 minutes north of Des Moines IA. I'm originally from Delano, MN about a 40 minute drive west of minneapolis, and currently on my spring break (until the 20th of the month anyway) and back in minnesota for the time being.

    I'm curious as to whether or not there are any other minnesotans or iowans with carputers on the board, would you be interested in a small meet and if so, where might you be interested in having it?

    Current ideas I've come up with:
    Iowa - Various restaurants/coffee shops in ames
    MN - Mall of America, Khans Mongolian BBQ

      I work right next to Kahns! But I haven't been there yet. It's funny how many people don't know where Roseville is, but everyone seems to know Kahns...

      Big snowstorm on the way, so this weekend might be a bit messy. But I'm game for a quick show and tell if a few others are.

        when it snows.. I love it.. 4x4 all the way ..

        it's the sense of adventure in me I guess..

        word is 8-12" .. I was thinking about getting all my shocks done here and ball joints.. but that may have to wait.. I'm gonna try and make a barter deal with the auto place..

        there is also a kahns in coon rapids off of Hanson and HWY 10 .. the took over the steak buffet ..

        na but I'm all up for a meet and greet .. I used to goto the 2600 (hacker club thing) meetings and those where monthly.. I'd be all up on us twin cities folk getting together to shoot the breeze and whatnot once a month or so..

                Checkin in here, I'm in Minneapolis. I'd be down for a get-together, but you have to be willing to listen to me ***** about how none of the frontends are as good as they should be.

                    Dang! All I want to see is a gps running an app integrated into Frodo... I don't want to drop that much moola without seeing it in action. Where's Freestyler!?!?!

                        Its pretty hard for me to get off work unless I know about it 2 weeks in advance. I'm a full time student and work most weekends. So the sooner we can determine a date the better. Any ideas on location? Mall of america would work well for me. - I'm married too, could make a 'family day' of it.

                            I think the 30th would probably work better for me. but i can swing the 23rd if i need to.
