Roadgeek Baby Shower!
« on: March 17, 2019, 10:43:28 PM »

Mr. and Mrs. MDRoads (Mike and Laura) baby Lorraine is planned to arrive in the late spring

So let's do something unique - a roadgeek baby shower and celebration at their new place in Bel Air, Harford County, Maryland.

An Old Guy who has never done this is doing the hosting, so bear with me.

Details:

Laura is registered for baby stuff at Amazon.com and at Target.

Saturday, April 27, 2019 at 1 PM – 4 PM

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.
