This is a really cool idea and I bet the MDRoads' really appreciate it.

That's the weekend of the Jefferson Highway Conference, which I have already committed to.

The event page isn’t showing up for me, and I may have plans with family that weekend anyway.

I had originally planned on attending this.  Unfortunately, complications and responsibilities have cropped up and I will no longer be able to attend.  I hope to see at least some of the same folks at the Providence gathering the following week.

Sorry that you cannot get down to this. But the supply of warm season Saturdays seems increasingly contained!

Update: Due to a local morning commitment, I will not be able to attend the pre-shower Baltimore meet/tour; but I will be able to attend the shower itself at 1 PM.

This sounds like a wonderful event, both the shower and the ROADS!!! activities that have been folded into the day.

However, my attendance will be precluded for a number of reasons. Chief among them are these: my finances do not presently allow for a trip of this distance, my wife is recovering from minor surgery and it would be unwise (in more ways than one) to leave her for what would be at least three days and two nights, and at this moment I'm unsure of how well my vehicle would do on such a long trip.

My best to the parents-to-be, however, and my friends who will be in attendance.

just saw this for the first time just now...

Missed opportunity if nobody got them a mobile with I-10, I-65, I-165, US 43, US 45, US 90 and US 98 shields plus the Bankhead Tunnel dangling from it...

Congratulations to Laura and Mike

We came close. Anthony and his wife got the baby girl some onesies with route markers for two Quebec highways intersecting in a Montreal suburb with the baby's first name.

Too bad you couldn't make it, it was well-attended and fun was had by all.

AH! missed it, held last year and I usually don't come to AAroads or any other message board often, I'm busy with work and family (and life in general). In 2020, I yearn to return to 2019...but we have to keep going and hopefully 2021 a better year. Mike and Laura, congrats (your baby is here). My wife and I had 2 baby showers with a combined sci-fi and family oriented theme: astrologically, I'm an Aquarius and she's a Cancer, imagining ourselves as Family Robinson on "Lost in Space". We had a son in 2009 (a Leo) and a daughter in the first week of 2012 (a Capricorn). Also I'm a stepfather of a Virgo son and I was my wife's friend (she broke up with her ex) before we started to date within a year after his birth, then we got married. Oddly, I'm genderfluid (I identify as both male and female) and I can say I'm my step-son's second mother. And was the baby shower a roads-themed one?

It's been a while since I've been on here - and since Desert Man revived the thread I wanted to chime in and say thank you all again for such a wonderful time and for such wonderful gifts for my daughter!!!

Yes, Desert Man, it was roadgeek themed and it was AMAZING! CPZ got us the most amazing roadgeek themed cake from Charm City Cakes - seriously it was the best cake I've ever had - and it had roads on it and Maryland state highway shields with Lorraine 2019 in them!!

Hard to believe she is 18 months old now. She's attended one meet (Utica, NY back on July 18, 2020) and been to a few mini-meets as well (VDOT incident management open house and the DC Transportation Camp/TRB meetup). Hopefully we'll be at more meets in 2021!!!
