All -

I know it's early, but just checking in for our October meetup. Assuming it's still on for the first weekend in October. Is there anything I need to do on this end?

Mickey

Yup....first weekend of October is now ours again! Most of us have our reservations at the Tally Ho. Looking forward to seeing you all. Perhaps you and Jim Watson can coordinate again this year?

Since St. Louis had to be cancelled, Shelly and I are thinking about coming to Townsend. My last day of work before retirement is Wed, Sept 30th so could be there by Friday afternoon. What's between Gulfport, Mississippi and Birmingham, Alabama for 1st night stop?

1st night stop? I drove straight thru coming home from Palestine. :)

Well, there is Tuscaloosa before Birmingham. Roll TIde!

Fort Payne is about 100 miles past Birmingham. Home of the group, Alabama. Last time I stayed there (many years ago) it was a dry county.

I went from Palestine to Pflugerville to visit my brother. When I left, I drove 23 hours home, stopping only for road food, fuel, and pee breaks. No sane man should attempt to do this with his wife in a small British car.

You are a brave man, Phil! No one has accused you of being sane, that I know of. ;)
