This caper still going down at noon on Sunday?

Need reservations?

:-)

Definitely happening. I spoke to them, today, actually. They do not take reservations, but said that between their indoor and outdoor seating, they will have plenty of room for us, whether 5 or 20 show up.

Well, I may or not make it, now, depending on the weather. They're currently ccallingfor a good possibility of all day storms, around my area, so I'm going to play it like this: if it's not storming when we get ready to leave, around 10 am, then we'll be there. If its storming like crazy, though, probably not.

We'll still be there. LaSandra has a sinus infection so we'll probably be in a car though.

Well, not looking great for me. It's a solid mass of storms covering every bit of road between Chanute and Undercliff. If it were just some rain or it was only part of the ride, I'd still go, but considering the fact that the kiddo would be riding with me, today, that's a bit much to ride through for this one. Sorry, guys, but I hope that everyone who does make it has a safe ride and a good meetup! If someone could be sure to take some pics for the thread, I'd appreciate it!

Looking out the window here in Joplin it looks like the front has passed over this area. Still light sprinkles, but weather man says it will dissipate to scattered showers.  I will attend on G5

They downgraded forecast. Now it looks like 100% chance of rain for noon.

Good food. Good conversation. Good time!

I'm glad to see the 4-States Chowdown revived!

Sad that I missed this one, but glad that it had such a great turnout! Thanks to everyone who attended. Even though I wasn't able to be there, its encouraging to see that these are gaining some steam. We'll start planning next month's, sometime this week.

Rolled into  Tucumcari NM 2100, following wind helped. Long day but worth the visit with everyone.

In santa rosa, will make Needles to nite

That train wreck in 1914 happened very near where we met. It was a local freight train head on with a gasoline powered passenger railbus known as a Doodlebug. These also were known generically as, ironically for our group, as  Gallopin' Gooses.
