u are more than welcome to join the hip, cool SW region. we plan on having lotsa fun. Heck, if u were interested, maybe we could all meet in the NM region. I just thought that the drive would be a bit far for u. u do realize that TEXAS is quite wide, and that most of west Tx. ain't all that purty(if we met in Tx).
I sure know about the great state of Texas (and when they say 'great' they are most certainly referring - among other things - to its size).
I just remember a cross-country move from Phoenix to Atlanta carrying a whole bunch of stuff in the back of my little Nissan Sentra (including 2 meowling cats) and it took two #$%@! days to get across Texas!!! Not very pleasant memories....
But thank you very much for the hospitality! I guess driving across TX in an 'x' would be very different (except instead of meowling cats I'd have a meowling 3-year-old in the back).
How about the 1st So Cal meeting at Acura-MDX Corporate Headquarters in Torrance? I believe there are some ACURAMDX.org members that actually work at HQ. Would they be able to line something up? Or a call into customer service. Think of all the possibilities! Tour of HQ, live feedback on the MDX and assessories , Hollywood this not that far away...film a TV commerial with testimonials from real MDX owners, find out how many MDX would fill their parking lot, spell MDX with MDXs for their next brochure ...etc. Our live input is priceless, but it should be worth at least lunch for us.
