I'll be RDU Jan 6-8 and was wondering if any of the local spotters would be interested in getting together for an afternoon of spotting on the 7th (maybe a dinner outing afterwards?).

Let me know if you'd be interested and we'll work on getting something set up.

I'm from RIC, and willing to make an appearance. If nobody else is interested, I'm up for a day of spotting.


Yay Pudding!

If I don't have anything going on, I'll show my face.

Sounds good. What say anyone who's interested meet over at the Crosswinds Cafe at the GA Terminal around 1PM on the 7th (unless there's a preferred meeting spot with better spotting around - let me know, please).

Don't know if I will make it, but welcome down to RDU. You should go to the new Carolina Ale House in Brier Creek afterwords.


Older than I just was ,and younger than I will soo be.

Thanks! It's actually my second visit (daytripped down in August from ORD en route back home to YYZ), but my first stayover weekend. Probably be popping down quite a bit this year.

I'll keep it in mind! Do you have an address (google showed quite a few in the vicinity)?

Brier Creek Carolina Ale House
Alexander Place, 7981 Skyland Ridge, Raleigh, NC 27617, (919)957-4200

Just use Skyland Ridge Pky , Raleigh, NC, 27617 when using google.
Zoom out a bit to see the airport, only about 1 mile away.

The trick from Crosswinds is to go northeast along the runway, and follow it around the runway. At the light make a right(Lumley). Go through the next light, go Under 70, and then make a left onto 70 going northwest, towards Durham(Stay to the left as this is also the onramp to 540). The next light is for Brier Creek and Alexander place. (on the map link it is where the 70 sign is above the cemetary). You can make the right here, and on your right will be Walmart shopping center, on the left is the ale house.

I was actually referring to people showing up this weekend, but a weather report will do just nicely, I might still be able to wear some shorts this weekend.

I still plan to be there. I'll be right down the road from RDU, staying over at the Courtyard Marriott.

I'll be there, barring I don't get lost again in this wonderful city of yours  Wink

I'll be in a black peacoat, with my ear plugged into a scanner.
