Will you join us?!



___SCHEDULE INFO___

This IS a FAMILY event, RAIN OR SHINE.

While it would be wonderful to have everyone here the entire day (like people stay for established weekend shows/cruises), this is not always possible. Thus, the gathering is "scheduled" so people can come and go.

As you plan for this gathering, if you wish to do the "Drive!", please arrive before 11a; we'll be back ~12:30p. If you arrive at Steak'n'Shake between 11a and 12:30p, please stay a while! The gathering starts at 10:30a ... and lasts until 9p or later, if people choose to stay and attend a local car cruise.


WHEN YOU ARRIVE, PLEASE SEE ME! I will give you Steak'n'Shake coupons and make sure I have you noted on the attendee list!



___FACEBOOK LIVE!___

I created an "Event" for this on Facebook. If you are a Facebooker, check it out and join/attend.



___DRIVE ROUTE___

The "Drive!" begins at 11a and lasts ~1.5 hours; the route is ~50 miles long.


From the Steak'n'Shake parking lot, turn RIGHT (south) onto RANDALL RD

Turn RIGHT (west) onto BOWES RD

Turn LEFT (south) onto CORRON RD

Turn RIGHT (west) onto SILVER GLEN RD

Turn RIGHT (northwest) onto BURLINGTON RD

[Cross IL ROUTE 47; continue on BURLINGTON RD]

Turn LEFT (west) onto PLANK RD

Turn RIGHT (north) onto MOOSE RANGE RD

Turn RIGHT (east) onto COUNTY LINE RD

Turn LEFT (north) onto WALKER RD

[Cross IL ROUTE 72; continue on WALKER RD]

Turn RIGHT (east) onto MELMS RD

Turn LEFT (north) onto HARMONY RD

Turn RIGHT (east) onto BIG TIMBER RD

Turn RIGHT (east) onto US ROUTE 20:
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/U.S._Route_20

Traveling east along US ROUTE 20 includes a BRIEF stretch of road (~ 0.5 mile) that combines 3 routes ... US RT 20 / IL RT 72 / IL RT 47 ... so be sure to follow the signs for US ROUTE 20 EAST

Exit RIGHT (south) onto RANDALL RD

Return to Steak'n'Shake

Mikey,

That'd be awesome if you could bring both ... but I really want to see that MCSS of yours in person wink.


Tim,

Sure hope you are able to be here!

Are you planning to join us???


Due to some newly-started road construction, the _DRIVE ROUTE_ may be altered. More details about this later....

LOL! I wish it was all done.....that sure would be nice. Problem is, more has started......arg.


***

___DRIVE ROUTE___

I drove the "path" recently ... and, almost unbelievably, MORE road construction along the proposed way has started. So ... this might be dramatically changed/shortened (canceled?), depending on how long the road construction lasts. I hope to have more details in early July, but this part of the gathering might not be settled until the day of the event.



___"NUMBERS"___

The first 2 years, I "kept track" of those planning to attend, which is why I've had a few inquiries about how many are expected this year. The answer is ... I don't know. It would be nice if the "third time is the charm" ... and we had more people than we did the first year (65), instead of having a turnout like last year (20). Guess we'll see.... If you are planning to attend, post a reply here ... and "talk it up" ... and tell others about it. Remember ... ALL ARE WELCOME!!!

Cool. Glad you will be able to join us for part of this. That's how it is set up ... so people can come and go as they need to.....

___DRIVE ROUTE___

Road construction along the path APPEARS to be mainly done, so this is a GO...!

If needed, we'll alter the route "as we drive"....



___PEOPLE___

I've heard from several who will be there ... how about YOU?

I know life is busy running a million miles per hour [feels like summer is already half over!], but it is always good to see friends and meet new people...so please join us!

Looks like there might be some chances for showers, but we're headed up anyways. We'll be there mid-afternoon (but not in a Monte or G-body... can't get the Regal running).

The rain scared us away. It was too ugly to drive into.
