Year-by-year for me:

< 2016: 0
2016: 1 (Corridor H)
2017: 0
2018: 1 (Golden Spike)
2019: 0
2020: 0
2021: 0
2022: 1 (Philly)
2023: 1 (so far) (History of US1/US40 in Harford County, MD)

Grand total: 4.  Average per year: 0.5.

It's tough for me since my wife isn't really a roadgeek, and so I always end up going alone and feeling guilty about leaving her behind, ESPECIALLY over two-day meets.  Also, I usually don't have the funds and/or available time off from work to travel, so I end up sticking VERY close to home.  (When I did Corridor H, I lived in Maryland.  In 2018, I started working in the Philly area and commuting weekly from Maryland, which put a huge damper on ALL of my hobbies, but Golden Spike was too rare an opportunity to pass up.  I moved to Philly in late 2021.)

I've never gone to one. I might consider if it weren't too far away, but I probably wouldn't go out of the way to go to one. Any plans for a KW road meet?

2016-Central PA and Albany, NY (2)
2017-Beckley, WV, NYC (Goethals Bridge), Northern DE (US 301) (3)
2018-CSVT and Salamanca, NY (2)
2019-Newburyport, MA (1)
2020-Utica, NY, Morris County, NJ, Greensboro, NC (3)

If I were in Key West I wouldn't have had to leave my bike at work last night because the lock was frozen in a block of ice.

Well, then anyone should know it, then. :D

Of course! :biggrin:

Depends on where.  Michiganders and western New Yorkers might get it.  Albertans might not.

Kids have killed me traveling anywhere far for a road meet, and since the southeast is a road meet desert these days, it means little to no road meets for me.

Laura

This year (2023) my daughter and I attended six meets! This was a huge year for us and meets - probably our personal record-breaking year!


  • Long Island, NY (3/18)
  • Harford County, MD (5/6)
  • Buffalo, NY (7/29)
  • Cumberland, MD (10/21)
  • Lancaster, PA (12/9)
  • Missing Moves Mini Meet (12/16)


Mike attended 4 of the 6 (excluding Long Island and MMMM). Of the six, we hosted two of them (Harford County and Cumberland)!

As a first step to compiling my list, my first meet might've been something in Raleigh NC around 2000. I can't pin down the year let alone the month, since it was long before this forum, and the scan date on my film camera photos doesn't reliably indicate when the photos were taken. Maybe my film camera negative archives can help, when I have more time (not this year) and can pull those archives out of my storage unit.

Adam Prince might've been there. More notably, both John Lansford (never joined this forum) and Scott Kozel (inactive on this forum, Beltway when he was active) were there.

Can anybody help me make a better guess?

My meet frequency has plummeted lately, due to balance and other health issues. This year, at least a brief appearance at Laura's Harford MD meet.
