I can bring a guitar if Mickey would like. Don't think I can get two guitars in my B.

aeHeaded out 6am. About to connect with Ralph in Longview. I love my BF Goodrich g-Force Rival's in the dry and haven't had any issues around town, but I had a pucker factor going on US-59 @ about 70mph with an 18 wheeler behind me. All I could do was let off the gas. Be care out there!

We are here at Quality Inn Lewisburg Wv. It has been raining. West Virginia has been a pretty wet drive, but has been said to clear up for the rest of the week. Looking good!!!

I have a question for Jim or Dan Blackwood. I was wondering where you were going to setup for our cars in the parking lot? Would it be in the back or front parking lot? The hotel lady said probably in the front lot. The back dead end lot looks like it won't be big enough for our group.

That would be correct Calvin, on all counts. The car wash area is back by the pool. Welcome room will be in the corner to the left in that picture.

Ok, there will be a Midwest contingent, Artie Clark, Mike and Al Moor, and Jim Miller, meeting at my house near Columbus, OH tomorrow around noon. (Artie isn't from the Midwest but we'll give him an honorary membership 😊 ) We will be going down US 23 to US 35 to I-64 in WVA. If anyone else is nearby and wants to join us at my house or along the way, send me a PM and I'll give you my address and phone number. It should be a lot of fun!

On a related note, the neighborhood in my garage is improving. There's a 68 and 78 in it right now!

FYI, they are doing some targeted enforcement on I-64 between Huntington and Charleston during the month of June. Also, always be wary on the WV Turnpike if you take that route. Drive with traffic and you should be fine.
