September 22-23, 2012. Trouble is that they are talking about moving the Rally away from the coast so it will be some time before we get a definate location for the Rally.

There are a few of us in Boise. Mine is my DD, but it's falling apart around me and I'm losing my enthusiasm because of it. :(

I live in Bellingham and have an '89 Scorpio. I used to see a couple others around town, but haven't seen them much lately.

you know after doing a little research if we met up close to Pendleton Oregon it would give ALOT of people a chance to get into this meet up. that is just about half way between Spokane and twin falls. merks could come from billings, Portland, Seattle and any that are closer. might have to see if there is a show some where close to that location this summer or just a get together.

Or just not trust a 25 y/o Ford made in Germany...
Besides, gas ain't getting any cheaper. As much as I appreciate a fellow Merk enthusiast, I'm not completely willing to drive 150+ miles out of my way just to meet them face-to-face. The interwebs are a miraculous thing that allow us distant friends, with common interests, to share info and experience without the expense in transportation.

I do understand the problem with gas prices and the reliability of our cars. Would not be for a few months witch is enough time to save a little coin. No worries if your not interested, ill just keep hoping that more will be. And hell if nothing comes of this mabey I will make a trip closer to seattle area or longview.
