Informal TDR Group gathering at Phil Stuart's in Vienna
March 25, 2001
People began arriving at Phil's by 10:30, and by the time we ate lunch,
over 15 trucks had arrived. Each new arrival was announced by the clatter
of a diesel rounding the corner at the end of the street, and people stopped
talking briefly to see if they recognized the truck. Usually, the owner was
known to someone before the truck parked, and each new arrival started a
round of introductions and produced more food for the picnic.
As each hood went up, the group moved to that truck to compare
notes and debate the pros and cons of each modification. It took several
tours of the entire field of trucks to satisfy everyone enough to turn thoughts
(briefly) to food. Unfortunately, I was too busy eating during the break to
take photos of the picnic, but people who left the table hungry had no one to
blame but themselves. After a brief feeding frenzy, it was back to the trucks.
