I miss him, too. I wonder where he went??

Well, I don't want to jinx anything, but things are looking up around here. I think the six brutal weeks in Heck are paying off. We have an old friend from Okinawa days who is just back from an extended tour as an RN at Landstuhl Regional Medical Center (auf Deutschland) and she has expressed a willingness to come over and give me a weekend off sometime. I may use that coupon for Winchester smile .... fingers crossed ...

The Grand Pooh Bear should donate that free time to attend the Reunion instead!!
It's been over five years now and about time to greet his poor Stovebolt worshipers in person!!
Some think he is a God!!

Planning is going good and we have Stovebolt Dog Tags this year.
But, you have to be there to get one!

Very slight chance I may be able to make that event.
A gentleman in upper New York state is interested in our 48, 3/4 ton grain truck. "The Chalk Board"
He will get a full evaluation from one of our Reunion seminars.
If he still wants it, I may deliver it to him and stop by the Winchester show.

But, I need more info on places to stay and about the show.
If I don't get info, I'll just think you all are scared of this Missouri Redneck!

Don,

We stay at either the Econo Lodge Winchester North or Comfort Inn which are side by side at US-81 exit 317 and Hwy-11 (3 miles south of the show that's on Hwy-11).

Many of the ODSS group camp out on site in RV's or tents or in there truck...no RV hook-ups or bath house, but they do have a building with flush toilets and wash sinks, as well as job johnny's scattered around the show field.

Hope you can make it!

Mike B smile

Thanks Mike!
You are a whole lot of help.

Won't know if I can make it until after the Reunion and if mikec4193, really wants the 48 Chevy truck.
The truck evaluation is one of the seminars planned at the Reunion.
Then Mike can decide if he wants it or not.

Can I bring a Redheaded date?

Don

And don't forget the cows to moo you to sleep. Which is all very soothing until one of them goes into labor ... Which is better than Macungie where we camp next to the tracks and the fast freights at 0230 hit their air horns about 50 feet from your pillow and the headlamp lights up the interior of the Billycoach... smile We learned important lesson -- never set up camp next to shiney railroad tracks ...

Another ODSS Camping Lesson ... In addition to the Winchester Cows and the Macungie Trains ... how can I leave out the South Bend Midnight Chainsaw revving contest which taught me never to bunk in the same enclosed space as Greg Muller* and Ted Truss* .... Sortta like the Macungie Trains only all night long .... It was so loud, Mike Reese decided sleeping in the three inches of water inside his tent was preferable to the Billy Coach that night ... wink

Or the Huntsville Generator from H E double hockey sticks that was so loud the guys on the International Space Station called Mike and asked him to shut it off until they were on the back side of the planet ...

*Names changed to protect the guilty

Sure! Camp with us. Memories to last a lifetime ... big_eek

Looks like I might be able to make it this year! The bluegrass festival that I go to, which has always conflicted with Winchester, is not an issue this year. Yippie!!
