Hey brother, sorry for being out of sink over the last 2 days. Just got engaged yesterday so I’ve had a lot of things go on. I’ll find a new vehicle exchange tomorrow, I’ll try and scout them out in person if possible
Very happy for you. That's nice to hear.
Take lots of pictures. Keep me posted. It's crunch time.
Yessir, found a couple spot. I am working on the list now
Here are the new VE, I feel much more confident with this. VE#1 is the more favorable one. It is much more secluded. VE#2 is a much larger parking lot at a movie theater. There could be cops there, in which case we will pivot and go to VE#1 as a plan B if we choose VE#2 as the primary
My heart and gut lies with VE#1. It is safer
You will have the recon pics on the ground by tonight
Back home now. Will review.
That new spot looks promising.
We could easily have guys relieve themselves in the first 100 or so feet of the trail there. I know that's a big issue for a lot of guys. Have we been there in person?
Tyler MD is on his way as we speak to check things out. Take the pictures, scout for cameras, look out for any potential problems. Would you want to maybe hop on a call with him on mumble? And talk to him while he is on the ground?
Sure, I'll be on for the rest of the night.
Ok let me give him a call
He doesn’t have mumble on his phone, could we set him up real quick or does yhat take time?
He is about 8 min away
It's fine if he knows what to look for, we can review everything once he's done.
Do you have any questions or concerns you may have?
As of right now he is looking for:
Documenting any signs immediately in and around the lot is important.
Of course, we can break regulations.
Just told him that, he will be also walking the lot while filmimg
We will likely have someone in the lot to mind the cars.
He is just about to pull in, he will be uploading all pictures and videos and will put it in a Megafile for us to see
This is a scripted message. An important announcement has just been posted in the #announcements channel. Please review it in detail and follow the instructions given. If we have not conversed recently (or since the last scripted message), give me an update on your organizing and any questions or matters I can assist with. Thank you.
Tyler went on the ground. He had some suspicious behavior happen at VE#1. He will rescout it in the day time. VE#2 is completely unavailable. The whole parking lot is fenced and blocked off due to construction. They tore that regal building down to build strip malls
But VE#1 still looks very promising
Roger that. So we're still with the Potomac Overlook?
For now yes, until we scout VE#2 or find something else!
When will you be arriving in the area? Will we be doing our site walkthrough before the demo?
Wednesday Night, To walk the route, scout things, Thursday.
Ok let’s make it happen.
Give me 2 days, I will get a final VE. All the ones we scouted were no good
Hey Thomas, could you give me a vetting server login? We have a new interviewee.
I know i know won’t happen again I promise. I will write it down
Thank you 🙏
Update on VE situation. All VE we scouted are bad. I found a good one, secluded low pop park.
Only problem is, it is 25-30min away. I think we might to persevere a long ride for the sake of safety.
Check it out:
10601 Riverview Rd, Fort Washington, Maryland
Let’s expect 15 to be taken worst case scenario. Do you think 40 spaces will be enough for us?
2) 3701 Lockheed Blvd, Alexandria, VA
3) 5055 Allentown Rd, Camp Springs, MD 20746
This one is the most promising!
We will scout this Friday
I understand the urgency
30 minutes in a box truck is something we may want to avoid.
We can't plan on an Exchange until we've been there in person.
Yes of course, It is really hard to find someth8ing secure 15 min radius. It will almost certaintly have us exposed in a parking lot with a number of ppl. 200 guys assembling would attract a lot of attention immediately. Cops would be called within 15 minutes
can you hop on mumble for 10 min?
Made a group chat with security teams. Added you there as well
Send me the list of the prospective VE's.
1) 10601 Riverview Rd, Fort Washington, Maryland
2)5055 Allentown Rd, Camp Springs, MD 20746
Have we scouted any of these out again?
I am about to leave my house to scout them out now actually. I'm pretty set on #3 but Tyler MD had some negative reports about it so I will go check it myself as well as checking #1 and #2 as a plan B if #3 doesn't work
I'll be taking videos and I'll send you the link by 1pm
Roger that. I plan to leave Milwaukee tonight and be in DC tomorrow morning for additional scouting first thing. You let me know where we need to go.
Is tomorrow when we'll do the final walkthrough the route?
I will also be scouting anything I can Thursday.
I will start each day with a scout of as much of the locations as I can, and finish it with updates to the documentation from a hotel room.
ok sounds good. Didn't you mention that me, you and Mason will walk the route Thursday? Are we still doing that?
The only change is we might do it also on Wednesday.
Perfect, do I need to be there Wednsday?
We're going to leave Wisconsin a little early. All the root beer and cheese curds can only sustain us so long.
You do not need to. We'll inform you of our schedule better when we leave tonight and have an ETA.
Find me some easy parking spots to scout certain areas, if you can.
ok will do later on tonight!
You mean parking spots for the route right?
Me and Sam parked here:
As long as you guys a concealed, shouldn't have a problem. You don't pay there
Haven't tries that lot but on a Wednsday mornign spot most likely will be available
Those guys have a nice wide open parking lot :point_up_tone1:
Very good. Thank you.
VE#3 is a no good. Confirmed Tyler’s reports. There is additional trail going in the wooded area which seems pretty popular. People are walking in and out. We would not have enough parking spots here. Assuming that Saturday there would be many more cars
Going to VE#1 now
I WONT LEAVE UNTIL WE FIND A VE TODAY
There are going to be some people, anywhere. It looks now like we'd have plenty of space.
If the weather is unusually poor on Saturday, we may have the opening we need. I can review #3 again tomorrow and even the day after.
Keep searching. #3 is still promising.
I’ll be getting you videos on all my prospects
AT VE # 1 ( Riverview Park )
Is completely empty, no people here at all. A total of 55 parking spots
The lot is at a park?
No gates, fees, weekend events?
No gates no fees, weekend events possible. We have no way of knowing when bc it is a public park. My concern is that bc of limited parking spots on a Sat if there are ppl here to play basketball or any other. We might not have enough spots
Going to the best one VE#2
Looks good to me. Keep checking out our options.
Going to the most promising one now
At VE#2 (Heart Church)
Looks very good, wide open parking lot. No barriers. Two entries, easy to access. We have over 2 acres of paved parking spots
