    Well I start school at UTI in Avondale on monday and I just moved here from Montana. I know theres a shitload of people on here from Arizona because I have seen countless tacos around Phoenix. I was just wonderin if anyone wants to go for a cruise around the area sometime and show me the ropes.

    Yeah man, get in on this meet and greet on the 18th, it should be a good time. I'm going to UTI also so come find me sometime and I will show you around. Look for the truck that's in my profile pic. I'm usually parked in the NE side of the parking lot. I'm in PM classes. There's another guy on here also who just started UTI, he is also signed up to go on the meet and greet ride on the 18th. Any questions just PM me and I will help out the best I can.

    As several have mentioned, the 18th is our biggest meet and greet yet. It's going to be the best way to meet new people and get to know your fellow AZ TW members. I look forward to seeing you there and meeting you in person. We are a very freindly community, if there's something you need help with please let us know we like to help :).

    Again welcome,

    Taylor (Masada)

    Welcome from Maricopa (city)! Yea do try to make the 18th it'll be the best intro to everyone. We also setup a mini meet on Monday nights (see the sticky) where some of us try to get together once a week or so (doesn't happen all the time but we try). It's a good way to try some dinner at some of the local joints we hit up.

    Well I'm pretty sure you won't know where the town is but I'm actually from a Farm near the town of Fallon and i went to school in Terry. My graduating class was four. Terry is on the eastern side of Montana about 150 miles from the ND border and about 300 miles east of the city of Billings if you know where thats at

    Hey I was just in Yuma on Wednesday. Grandparents live down there. Thats a pretty nice place too for what I've seen so far. And I am specializing in Auto/Diesel and Industrial. I'm also considering taking the Toyota specific class when I finish that up.
