Hi,
Of course we all know the answer to that! Just wanted to say I'm in Tampa until next Tue Sep 22, missing my trusty SLK350 and spotted a few choice specimens while running errands today. If some Tampa area (to be specific, Palm Harbor) fellow members are inclined to enjoy a beer or a bite this week it'd be fun to meet face to face. Don't be surprised if the subject of, oh say, SLK mods comes up! - John

John, you are staying where in Tampa?
I'm in Palm Harbor off Tampa Rd near Omaha St, about 1.5 miles from Ferrari of Tampa Bay.

Looks like Parkesdale Farms is about an hour from here. Anything a little closer so this side of town? Just asking.

The market doesn't have strawberries this time of year thus no shortcake and they are closed on Monday. The plastic was just laid and now in the process of planting (slowly).

We can meet in Tampa. Let me research.

I don't want to inconvenience anyone if Tampa is more central, but reasonably distanced Applebees or Chili's is fine by me. MayKay & I traded numbers, will talk a little after 9 to square away details. You all know by now I'm a fan of Waze and trust it will get me to whatever spot we settle on.

never an inconvenience. we've traveled further for a minimeet. but I know time is at a premium for the visitor/tourist so I like to get in and out for their benefit.

Yes, it certainly does. Thanks again to my SLK family in Tampa for the warm welcome. Great to meet Jeff & Chris face to face.
