Green Hell, I see you are in Alexandria. We have 4 FJ40’s meeting at my house at an early time TBD. My house is right on 395 and Duke in Lincolnia. You are welcome to link up with us and we can ride down in a caravan and that way we will all have adjacent parking spots.
I’m sure if you make it at 5:30 there will be shotgun space. I invited a friend of mine’s son to ride a long but haven’t heard if he’ll make it. Steve is driving my other forty, and that one probably has on open front seat.
