Default MountainMeet 2019 Photo Thread



Hard to believe this is the fifth one of these we've done. I had a blast this year, and really enjoyed every minute. I said it while we were there and I'll say it again, I really appreciate everyone pitching in to make things run smoothly this year.

So the official Saturday night headcount was 48. If you count everyone that was in and out over the course of the event, we had 58. Fifty-fucking-eight people! Hell of a turnout, hell of a group of friends to spend a weekend with.

Anyway, on to the photos:

We loaded up and rolled out with the trailer behind the T5 at about noon on Wednesday:



Got to the lodge early, but the caretaker was cool. Relaxed for a few minutes and then got busy setting up:





The important things were stowed carefully:



And then promptly passed out for the night:



The next morning, Dana, MrBill, Bayleigh, Liv, and I went on a short run down highway 215 to check out a waterfall:





Kyle showed up in his whiteblock-swapped Amazon:



We fried pretty much anything that would fit in Wren's Fryer of Doom:



JohnMC showed up in his turbo Ls 245 from Missouri:



A number of other people showed up Thursday afternoon/evening, including the Alabama crew, so we set the projector up outside and watched the OG Fast and Furious.



Friday morning was beautiful:



Nick showed up and immediately began to disassemble his turbo 940



This dude is a friend of Kenny/Sam who has since moved to upstate SC and decided to drop in with his supercharged 928. Awesome car, cool dude, can't remember his name.



Friday afternoon, a larger group of us went to check out another local waterfall



Isaac showed up at some point and he too began working on his car



Kaplan has a mean breaststroke



TequilaGundam Mark enjoying some flotation devices



Friday night







By Saturday morning, some wild tents had appeared:



Copious amounts of swine were fried up



My attempt at the group shot Saturday AM



This VG30 Turbo swapped 142 showed up:





I hopped in the mail jeep with Kyle and his dad on Friday to show them some gravel. This Megasquirted Mail Jeep made it all the way from Houston to NC over the course of a couple days. I was generously allowed to take this out for a spin a couple times, and it was hilariously terrifying.



Saturday Night:





Kenny droppin' butts



Saturday dinner:



Til next year...

He drove it all the way from Houston, TX. That's almost the same distance as Stockholm to Brussels.

Here are all the random pictures I took over the weekend, some of which are Highway 19 in southern WV:
https://imgur.com/a/odJLGeN

Liv has some pretty big shoes to fill:


Pretty much the whole weekend summed up:


Andrew's gorgeous 71 142S and Nick's frequently broken 744T:


Wren trying to squeeze into the back of MrBill's rental Abarth:


The two fast ass 245's at the gas station (Sam's and John's):


TurboBricking in the wild:


Jared handling his meat responsibly:


Nobody said anything about this all weekend:


The aftermath of some shenanigans:


And the international symbol for copious amounts of smoked pork, moderately quick Volvos, 40's, and ass:

the 928 belongs to David Woodside (woody).

I'll try and get my pictures somewhere posted up. I actually took more than 2 this year! (but I still didn't take a bunch). Shook something loose in the front suspension on the R, thinking a bushing or maybe a swaybar endlink.

Looking forward to next time.
