Hope the rain hits in the early morning like forecasts are currently saying and not later in the day. Might make my drive from Buffalo miserable, but I'd take that over bad meet weather.

For the Toronto people: what is the cheapest gas near the restaurant? My wallet will hate me, but I'm not starting the meet without a full tank.

Cheapest gas in Whitby is selling at 101.9 at Thickson and Rossland. Rossland is the second arterial north of the 401, the going rate at most GTA stations is 106.9

It's up to her. I would find Whitby easier given my lack of Toronto area knowledge. I got lost in St. Catharines, much less the Toronto area

Thanks. 101.9 is only 50 cents a gallon more than what it costs in Buffalo accounting for the conversion. I can live with that.

Here's my photo of most of our group, with an about-to-open segment of the 407 behind us on the overpass:



I'm at the far right, while Adam Moss is holding the upside-down 403 shield. Rest of the captioning to follow, though I'll need help on some of the names.
