What kind of Moding?
Any kind you'd like. There have been all types of mods done over the years at various GTG's. From simple things like installing Ambers, to Installing an entire set of train horns.

The "modding" time may be adjusted depending on who wants what done and what needs done. This is just a loose schedule that will be tightened as the GTG draws closer.

Ok, planning on staying in Georgia at my GF's mothers house Saturday night so probably won't make it back out for Sunday unless something major is going on.

Sounds like fun otherwise.

I can't wait to meet everyone.  I'm looking for some modding help on installing the Rear sail fastener LED's.  I have all the supplies, just not the talent to make/run the harnesses. 

I'll be coming in Thurs evening, and staying till Sunday at the Official hotel there - reservations made some time ago. 

Looking forward to meeting everyone.

Two questions...

Where will we be meeting up on Thursday? I have your number so should I just call/text when we get close? We are likely showing up early on Thursday, check into our hotel and check out the area.

Picking up a radio probably today for use while we are out there. Did you say we will be on channel 7 at least to start out with?

All depends on the coordinator or region.
Region II back in the old days used 3 but it's been at least 6 years since I used mine.
But for this gtg I believe it was posted that it would be channel 8.
