I'm up to 75% chance of being there.
BUT! Got the summons today for Jury duty on September 28th.
I don't mind doing my duty for the court system, but only a 2-1/2 week notice?
I'll call the courthouse tomorrow and see if I can put it off for a week.

Rant over.

If I can make it? The Stovebolt awning and flag will be with me. Unless there is already another one there.
Also other questions, Door prizes? Will there be a ODSS meeting?
I have some stuff that was intended for the Homecoming and some more stuff intended for the KC Reunion.
So, should I bring some of them?
Buckeyes are also about ready and I should have a poke of them.

I also need to hear back from the court system and see if I have to be at the county courthouse September 28th?
Don't ask why and I will not show you what is around my ankle!

Don,

Winchester/Tri-State has pretty much evolved into a "chill" event. We go, relax in good company, enjoy old trucks ... that's about as far as we structure it. No meeting. No door prizes. Not much of anything that would add to anyone's stress level. BYO/go with the flow is pretty much the SOP. There will no doubt be some wrench turning, but not like Homecoming. This is probably the only event most of us will get to this year so we are trying to keep it fun and relaxing and not structure it. Its shaping up to be my big get away and I plan on having a very relaxed, enjoyable weekend with some of the best friends I have.

Panel Fan would probably be the best one to talk to about the evnt from the perspective of someone who lives far away and makes a trek to attend. Bottom line: It's not KC and its not Homecoming ... It's ... Tri-State. If you like seeing a crapload of identical Peterbilts, Macks and Kenworths parade by (interspersed with representatives from area junkyards) accompanied by monosyllabic commentary from Grigg and Marlow during the midnight golfcart review, staring at a campfire until 3 am and just hangin' with the buds, then you might like it. We do!

Thanks John for the update.
It's looking more like I'll be there. 85%? Probably make it a two day trip to get there and back.
Do the scenic route, I-64 to I-79 to Hwy. 48 across to Winchester? Unless someone suggests a different route.
Right now I don't plan on bringing a Stovebolt, but that may change yet.

No wife and no dog to bother me.
Sitting around and watching the show go by, sounds like my speed and a good relaxing getaway.
I'll miss Tim riding shotgun though.

Oh, I almost forgot the Saturday 9 pm visit from the shirtless trash-mongering sasquatch brandishing a bottle of peach brandy ...

480 miles to Winchester, 400 less than Don, and without Tim. Don't care about the big trucks, but want to listen to another story about being given 3 trucks in the weeds, just get them out of here. I'm still looking for my own weed find. And I'm going to Winchester to put more faces to names I see every day in the Forums. And I will miss those I already know who won't be there. It's a long time to the next Homecoming, and the KC Reunion.
