OB.c Thanksgiving Drive - Saturday 11/14
 
**UPDATED**
New starting point

:brrrr:

Josh and I decided that we hadn't seen each other enough lately and wanted to get the gang back together again, so before some of us put our cars away for the winter and retire to our dull, soulless winter beaters, let's have one last hurrah.

We will start start in Northern Cincy, drive through Warren and Greene counties and finish in Dayton (Bellbrook/Centervile area).

We'll meet between 3/3:30 and leave promptly at 4:00. The drive should take about 2 hours including a photo stop or two.

The starting point will be the parking lot at Great Wolf Lodge (2501 Great Wolf Dr, Mason, OH 45040)

We will run north towards Dayton and stop at a predetermined location for a quick photo op. From there we will head to Bob Evans for dinner and conversation. After this some of us will be heading downtown for drinks and assorted shenanigans.

Big shout out to Josh Isenbarger aka White Josh for putting our route together.

Friends are welcome to tag along.

Please keep in mind that this is not a race and is intended to be a nice fall scenic drive to bring an end to the season.

Ohhh goody. I guess I'll wait another couple weeks to put on the winter tires.

Yeah, good point.

Marcumac 11-11-2015 05:47 PM

My father will also be joining us, however I am looking for someone to give him a ride back down to the starting point from Dayton afterward (I'm staying in Centerville). Anybody have a free seat?

Update - might miss this. I dropped my car off at Just BMW on Monday to try to diagnose my check engine light but I still haven't heard anything.

Wow, you are patient. I'd have been on the phone with them three days ago. Not a fan of Just BMW. Reading a check engine light should take, all of 2 min.

Have fun guys, I won't be able to make it.

Yeah, I used to go to Ron at Metric Garage, but he's up at P3 in Dayton now. I went to Just BMW on a recommendation from my uncle. This one has been a bit of a conundrum though. The car is throwing 2A2E and 2A2F, which just translate to "fuel mixture control" on bank 1 and bank 2. I've checked/repaired/replaced a ton of stuff (some broken, some preventative, some just guessing - MAF sensor, VANOS solenoids, spark plugs and coils, PCV system and both DISA flaps), but the light is still going off. They gave me an E34 5-speed as a loaner so I'm just enjoying that.

I don't think it's the 02 sensors because I find it hard to believe that they would fail in both banks simultaneously. I suspect it's something to do with fuel delivery.

I can't be there. I've got a gig.

Dammit.

fravel 11-13-2015 03:58 PM

Got my car back, I'm a go again.

Marcumac 11-13-2015 05:00 PM

Nice! Glad it all worked out.
