Frank and I are thinking of leaving on Monday, so we can leave time for a stop at the NCM on the way there...it's about 1 hour off the main route.  Haven't quite mapped it out yet, but I'll update this by the end of this week incase anyone wants to join us along the way.

Make a quick visit to Mid-America Tuesday afternoon. Then head to Branson on Wed. morning and arriving early afternoon on Wed. the 7th. If anyone wants to join us on the way let me know.

Where's all the travel chit-chat?  The forum is pretty quiet.   You better get your bags packed and oil changed!

Louise & I will be a day late, joining on Thursday night.  We've been in Scottsdale remodeling a winter place we purchased a couple of months ago. The carpet installer comes on Monday along with 3 other vendors finishing stuff.  We'll put things in order on Tuesday, clean the paint brushs and leave Wednesday at dawn for the two day trek to Branson in the family...... minivan!   The C3 is still in storage in MN and the C7 stays in AZ.

See "you-all" soon!

O.K. John, Here we go. Leaving for Branson in a short time. C-5 is loaded and ready. Leaving in the RAIN. Creature comforts took priority over the C-3, which was my initial plan. Hate to leave the 72 home. Be Safe! See ya in a couple days. M-n-S

What Dave said - travel safe everyone!  

Wish we could join in this year but with the new job this year there isn't enough vacation time to do everything we want to do.  Next year is a maybe but after that I won't have "the work thing" to get in the way of travelling...!!!

Be careful in Sioux Falls..... That's a big Corvette town.  You two might get sidetracked and stay and party there!!!!
