    Seahawksax,
    Good luck finding any G8's, especially this time of year. Even during the summer months here in Southern NH, I will be lucky to see four or five. In a season. Once Halloween rolls in, my guess is it's "disconnect the battery and look forward to April" for most G8 owners. Nice area you are in (just over 2 hours from me here in NH), I'm quite familiar with it, as I used to have In-laws out that way.

    Thank you for your service.

    thank you, im not necessarily looking for G8's to meet up with during the winter. but some guys or gals to come over and help wrench during the winter so i can be ready to run by spring. the wife even offers to hold wine parties and other such things for the wives to come over as well.. just looking for some LS comradery. so far this "winter" is crazy for me compared to where i have been stationed. and the locals are telling me this isnt really winter!!! ahhhhhhh

    For a "taste" of what winter's really like, LAST winter would've been a good example. This one? Not so much, although that can change pretty quick. If I were closer, I might be able to help. I certainly have a couple LS's going on!

    Just wait, the cold is coming. Highs will be low single digits in less than a week in Vermont. It will be beyond nipplely. At least the days are getting longer, so we are over the hump.

    I vacation in Maine. I have spent 2 weeks per summer for the last 8-9 years. I have only ever seen one G8 in all my years. This past summer there was one in Franklin, Maine.
