Was going to ask a couple of questions, but decided to try the Poll thing. 

If it does not show up or otherwise does not work, can't say I didn't try. 

It is only 5 questions and those who answer will see the results.

Please, all that read this, take the poll.  It is not a commitment to anything. 

Just trying to see if an event is remotely possible in the future. 

Many thanks!

 

EDIT - Well, maybe it needs to get approved first. The 5 questions (with multiple choice answers) were:

- Where are you located?

- How likely would you be to attend an event? 

- How far would you travel for an event.

- Would you prefer event to be linked with a larger event or just a small gathering of 2 to 12 members?

- How much advance notice would you need to attend the event AND would you be willing to be part of a planning/organizing committee?

 

... I hope the POLL shows up somewhere soon and that folks will answer.  If not, any comments here appreciated.

I'm not willing to play when the questions are about "an event". Be more specific please?

Hi Keith',

Sorry about that.  I just naturally assumed people would know "an event" meant a time and a place for NV owners to get together.  Since this is a forum for NV owners... 

 

When my daughter owned a '93 Honda Del Sol 2-seater, we found a forum/club of other owners, named "AZSOLS"... lol... and those owners, since they all lived in same state, would get together a few times a year.  They'd do an annual weekend trip to Las Vegas (usually linked with a California Del Sol group), an annual day trip up Mount Lemmon in Tucson... very cool to see 10 to 20 colorful lil' Del Sols weaving their way up the windy road to the top of the mountain just to do lunch, an occasional get-together at a drive-In movie theater, and an annual meet at someone's house - usually midway between Tucson and Phoenix - to work on the cars and swap/trade/sell parts.   

 

I realize that, for many, their NV is their work vehicle and nothing else.  But, I was just curious to see if the travelin' NV owners might have an interest in getting together, especially if we discover a small group is actually within a set geographical area that would make it do-able.  I mean, if I could find 4 NV owners within 100 mile radius of my home, I'd be up for "doing lunch" at a state park or something... certainly if they have done any mod's to their vans.

 

So, that is what type of "event" that I particularly meant.  NV owners getting together, for whatever reasons, TBD...to be determined.

 

Now... to answer my own questions...

1 - Tucson AZ

2 - Probably would attend

3 - Up to 300 miles for a first event... maybe 400.  AKA a day's drive, comfortably.

4 - More likely a small gathering of owners, but might be up for Hot Air Balloons Festival in New Mexico or something similar.

5 - Short notice, 3 months, for small gathering.  Longer, if it was linked to something bigger or further from home.

-Pewamo, MI. ( central Michigan)
- Would love to attend
- about the same, around 300 miles
- Any size would be fine with me. Sometimes a smaller group is more manageable, and since we aren't a forum for Honda Accords, I'd assume getting a big group together could be tough....?
- biggest obstacle for me would be scheduling. Wife is a nurse with an always different schedule. My self-employed job has me working many, many weekends and holidays. I have lots of time off, but when there's work to be done, I've gotta be there. If a gathering arose in my neck of the woods I'd let the group determine when and where, and if it worked for us, awesome. If not, I'd expect lots of picture posts:)

I would be more interested in Nissan sponsored events. Nissan/Quigley in Moab? Diesel intro if they ever get around to it? AZ test facility tour? Seeing 50 NVs in Chris' lot?

Midwest... We are in the northwest suburbs of Chicago 1 mile from the Volo auto museum. Check that out on the history channel.
Id drive a few hours. Road America is less than 3 away.

Road America. Amazing track, and huge! Raced motorcycles there around 2006.... and got snowed on. It was awful! But a beautiful area!
