Burke, VA 22015 (near the Springfield interchange of I-95/I-495 south of Washington DC). I have a 16' trailer and a tow rig (when the wife allows me to use it), and most tools needed to do pretty much any moderate job on a car, plus engine hoist, a crappy welder, drill press, etc. That said, my garage itself isn't often available for visiting cars without advance notice since it's full of stuff and my own projects. But in a pinch I can run out fairly nearby with tools, and may be able to come grab a car with the trailer if it hasn't rained that day (my trailer is parked in a muddy area, and it doesn't come out on rainy days since it would destroy the yard). I also have little kids, so any loud work is a no-go in the evenings, generally.

I cannot be reached on weekdays, due to the nature of my job, though. Only evenings and weekends.

North Bay, ON, Canada P1C 1M9 - put that on your map!!!

Not likely that many of you will be up this way, but who knows. North Bay sits at the junction of the two "Trans-Canada Highways" that cross Ontario, Hwys. 11 and 17. They only meet twice North Bay and Thunder Bay. So if you are crossing Ontario chances are you pass through my way (unless you are just cutting across Southern Ontario).

Decent tools, compressor, etc. 2 car garage.

I have a vehicle with 5K lb towing capacity. No trailer but a friend has one.

Carson City, NV 89706, about 2 miles off US50/US395.

Garage, hand tools, some air tools and a Harbor Freight that's five minutes away. Might have beer, and possibly crash space for someone not allergic to cats. Usually have an extra car hanging around as a spare runabout. Said car might even work.

No real network of good mechanics, but there's a very good race shop about five miles away and they're good at fabbing stuff.

PM through the board.

Ok, I'm thinking this map thing would be more better if there were phone numbers on it since most people break down in less than favorable conditions and not having to wait for a GRMer to check his mail. But, how do we do it in such a way that our phone numbers can't be nabbed by every ne'er-do-well?
