Hello from snowy North VA

Hi all

Just joined the forum so saying hello. A Brit guy visiting the US, working with the USN on loan from the Royal Navy and working in DC...guess which building!

I drive an old Royal Navy Series III Landy, RHD, classic green and classic at marking the driveway at my rented house like a dog on a good walk...little reminders of it everywhere. There will have to be a power washer party the day we leave here or they'll hit me up for resurfacing it I'm sure of it.

To its credit it has not caused any problems, unlike the Fix It Again Tony (FIAT) sportster that blew its head gasket when we tried to see how much the turbo gauge went up to. The gauge went to 12 psi easily, but the engine only tolerated 9!

I'm not stuck in the Brit way however. I have a gun, a Harley and I joined the NRA...but they still will not give me a green card. How much more do I have to do to be accepted round here?

Off to read the threads.

Rob

Kind of sounds like an American trying to get a work permit to work in England.

Welcome! Got pics of your girl?

I can only say sorry...

Sorry. I can only guess what its like, but after 4 years away I bet I go back and get p***ed off in a heart beat at the paperwork and bureaucracy that I get faces with. I can only imagine.

Right, how to add phots...good question...let's see...I wonder if the add video button will do it...

No it doesn't. One picture. I will investigate further!

not sure if you're aware of the NoVA HH, but it's the third Thursday each month...

Welcome! I'm over at in SE at M street all the time at the Anacostia Community Boathouse. I don't think I've ever seen your truck, but it's hard to take a look over those walls

Hi PC

Thanks for the note. I has heard rumors of a group that meet regulalry here abouts. 254 pages of HH thread though...wow. Can you summarize just the 'where' you meet bit and are you meeting up in February?

Cheers

Rob

They meet the third Thursday of every month @ Kilroy's. It is just off 495 at the Braddock Road exit. The restaurant is in a strip mall there. Everyone lines up their LRs in the lot behind the shopping center and meets in the tented back deck of the restaurant for food, drinks, and conversation. Very inviting group, last meet was the first one I made it out to and I hope to be able to go to more.

Follow the thread mentioned above to find out what time everyone is showing up at.

Welcome Rob, and look forward to meeting you at happy hour. You will have to tell me about this snow though - I must have missed it.
