One more happy day at work for me then off the rest of the week.
Two more days of work for me and a little more work on the car before I can leave Guthrie at 6:00ish Friday morning to head that way...
Povertyflats, we're staying at the Econolodge at I-70 near the host motel. How do we get out to the garage crawl Thursday night? We went last year but all I remember was that we took I-70 west to I-35 south as short way and then headed west on a two lane. I'd appreciate some directions. Sam
Hey MO JUNK...take the State Street exit off of I-135 and go West for about 3 or 4 miles...EZ to find...Later
I maybe at work but in my mind I'm already there....
Old Fart, thanks for the directions. We are leaving central Missouri tomorrow morning. We are going to run hwy 54 and enjoy rural Kansas and some Americana. We'll cut north and west on section roads somewhere that will bring us to I-135 north of Wichita near McPherson. Last year we came across Hwy 56. We're all looking forward to a good road trip. See ya there. Sam
Once you hit 135, you can go west a couple of miles & come up to Salina on old 81 too
Hey Sam, I would like to meet you guys....Ill be the guy in the straw hat
I'm ready to go. The Merc looked like a barn find yesterday, got her clean'd up,
gas'd up and ready for the drive.
We are leaving Dewey at 6:30 going up hwy 99, I love driving through the flint hills.
Then hwy 400 to hwy 77 until we get to hwy 15 to McPherson. We have a blast
driving the back roads, I would encourage others to do the same. Salina is very kool
but the drive up is a close second.
Happy Trails, Mick
We are on the road headed east!

in the garage thrashin, why do I always wait till the last minute??
we'll see how thing go maybe thursday, if not friday morning for
sure!! wife and kids may even tag along!! can't wait!!!!
I'll be the other guy in a straw hat.
I am done with work for the week and ready to go.
is meet & greet open to all H.A.M.B.ers or aliance members only?
To the folks coming from the east, i70 has been shut down for 3 hours from roughly topeka to KS99 due to some sort of armed stand off. Highway 24 is the suggested detour, that's all the info I have heard so far. KS4 will also take you from Topeka to KS99. And back too I 70 but it has some slow corners. Safe Travels.
I just checked the Weatherbug and its 110* in Salina right now. WTF!
So Glad its going to be in mid to upper ninety's this weekend.
If you need me, I'll be at the waterpark!
I was just outside, and can confirm that temp but the feels like temp is 115
Wonder if Jerry would let us pool our money & pay entry for one of my buddies in his beer delivery truck...
Thanks, but I have to drop the kids off in the morning so I won't be on the road until 6:30.
Any chance that PovertyFlats or Travis could arrange to have an ice delivery truck accidentally, wink wink, shift its load into that giant cee-ment pond in the middle of the park?
Itchin' to hit the road Thursday. Stop by and buy. I'll have a trunk load of shiny stuff in a 10x10 swap spot on Friday. 50, 51-52 Plymouth grills, wheelcovers, taillights, spotlights, etc... The more you buy, the less I bottom out on the way home.
Nothin' could be finah' than to make it to Salina
Bill, a guy also in a straw hat,
(that's weird, Oh, and I suppose you'll all be wearing a white car t-shirt too!
We made it to Abilene, NoSurf & kids piled in the coupe, 6 people seat belted in!
We drove to the Brookville Hotel for Chicken!!
Let the Fun Begin!!

Anybody know about what time everyone leaves the show on Saturday? I am going to have to try and drive up after work and I want to make sure I have enough time to check everything out. Thanks and lookin' forward to an awesome show.
I am so bummed.
