It’s time we start getting a list of who might want to attend the NC Meet in Boone, NC



The list helps me know what to book for reservations for restaurants and prep for food. (and for my wife who wants to make a dessert.)



In the past meets, we’ve had between 28-35 trucks. (Except the 2007 Meet when it topped 106 and I told a whole bunch of people to stay home if they had families that didn’t want to shake and bake at a dragstrip.) So, we’re looking for 20 sign ups by June 1st as a good starting point.



Can’t make this one? I recommend another one. Brought to you by another group of great forum members and veterans.

While this has started off as a Nissan Titan event, I’d be more than glad to have other Nissan owners enjoy Boone and join the Meet so feel free to cross post on other Forums or PM for suggestions. We’ve had Armada’s and Frontiers.



As you decide please keep in mind the following:

1. Family friendly event.

2. It’s all about meeting others, talking Nissan, and offering up mod help and advice.

3. Please be safe while driving the Blue Ridge Parkway and in the town of Boone, NC.

4. Post up anything you plan on wanting to swap, sell, or raffle off.



I’ll edit this post with an updated roster as we go along.



Look forward to seeing you there.
