    Once again, Marcel is making the trek to the States for bizzness. But he will have some time to take in the local fauna and that is where I would like some assistance from forum members. I believe he will staying on a Saturday and I was thinking that maybe several of us could get together that afternoon and have a few beers with him. I just don't know where would be a good place for those that can come.

    Atlantic City?

    Philadelphia?

    Central Jersey (Trenton)?

    I want to keep it within an hour's drive away but enough that a few of us could get together. One of the sights that I plan on showing him is the USS New Jersey if we can, so it will be a busy day.

    Any suggestions?

    Wish I could, but I can't. Take pictures of the U.S.S. New Jersey for sure, and many of the "few beers" also!
    Have fun, "youse guys"
    All the best,
    Paul.

    Hi Jim,

    I think that would be rather short. My train arrives at Philly around 17.00h. I couldn't get the early one unfortunately.

    Where on Long Island? NY is about 3 hours away so it might be difficult. I was just talking to OldCrow who might be up to meeting at Aberdeen Proving ground in Maryland.

    I dunno. Beside just me boring Marcel, I was hoping we could get a few more members together.

    If it's three hours from you to NYC then it would be another hour on that so...

    Any other WE I could be more flexible. Sorry....
