Qatar GTG Thread

Might as well!

If any of my AVS brotheren are in my new neck of the woods... Please let me know! I'll be in Doha, but since Google Maps is telling me that it takes under 90 minutes to get to any part of Qatar from Doha, might as well open it up for the whole country.

I'm in!!!! If anybody needs a ride let me know. I am willing to pick up people in Philly, DC, Boston or NY before I drive up towards Greenland and then over to Sweeden and down to Qatar.

Maybe Jeff P. can come and bring some 215s with him??????

I'm telling you man. When I get some of my GoPro vids posted, you guys are going to be lining up...

Nicest airport I've ever been through in my life...and I'd like to think I've been around the block.

Unreal how nice a lot of the places are in this area. Top notch.

The driving here is..."organic," kinda like how the water flows...lol.

First impromptu Qatar GTG was a success!

Grilling and talking shop with a fellow AVSer has been the highlight of my time here thus far!

Thanks for coming out @jarv i!



Funny thing is, jarvi had to travel from Afghanistan to pay me a visit..lol.

Looking forward to meeting some other HT enthusiast out here....if they exist.

Resurrecting an old thread, but add one to the Qatar sandbox crew.


I'd love to get together if there's ever a Qatar GTG2 In fact, I'm reading about your HT18 build in the old theater as inspiration
