Buffalo, NY Road & Travel Enthusiasts Meeting - July 29, 2023

(1/14) > >>

Announcing my 2023 road meet hosting effort to be held on Saturday July 29, this time focusing on the city of Buffalo, NY, a city I lived in for a few years during my time at the University at Buffalo not so long ago.  It’s a city with a lot to explore and talk about, not just on the topic of roads & bridges, but also when it comes to its rich history of industry, architecture, and culture. It's also a short drive away from scenic destinations across southern Ontario, including the Welland Canal and Niagara Falls. Whether you’re coming just for the day or for an extended trip in order to better explore the region as a whole, I hope to see you there and hope you enjoy!

An outline of the day’s events (subject to change/alteration) is provided below. Updates will be provided over the coming weeks/months if necessary:

I guess the real question will be if there will be signs all over the city about the Bills finally winning a Super Bowl.

i won't lie, your last sentence is the single most likely thing to draw me in

Am ready and angery already.

Man, Steph and I will be coming back from Albuquerque NM earlier that week and will have to work that day so we are out, a good friend of ours (non road geek) lives in the area too
