We Might Be Stuck at Home, but We’re Still Chatting

Meet your fellow message boarders and do what we all do best: chat. 

Dubbed the "GRM Happy Hour," this virtual hangout was launched by hobiercr in our Off-Topic Discussion forum.

The first two have been deemed successes–lots of chat about car stuff and non-car stuff–so more are planned for the future, including this coming Friday evening at 9:00 Eastern. 

Want to join the chat? It's simple: Download  Zoom, and then check back on hobiercr's post to see when the next chat will take place. He’ll post a room link in the first post of his thread: Click it and you’ll instantly join the chat room. 

Shaving and combing your hair optional.

I'm in.  It's been great to not only put faces with forum names but to also hear all the ideas that people have.

I've got a special bottle of rye to bring down to the bar this October after all this.

It has been a great time. The tour of Mikes build was really cool!!!  I really liked the suspension and the engineering that went in to it.

Our internet is limited and at 0% from working at home.

BUT! I just downloaded Zoom onto my phone and plan to try it that way.

Awesome sauce! We started doing something similar at work a few weeks ago. 

Coffee breaks, mid-week sanity check, happy hour at 4 CST on Fridays. I will definitely try to remember to join this evening.

You can see my ugly mug and maybe some of the dogs!

I am in.  I may start dusting off my MS project during the chat.


We could have a discussion about starter powered forced induction systems that I posted up earlier in the week (Similar to our aero discussion on Tuesday).  In either case I will be there.  It was good fun!!!
