We will be coming from Chicago area on Wednesday and looking forward to hooking up with the caravan from St. Louis to Kansas City. Has there been any official meeting place, time, etc for hooking up on Wednesday itself for whatever festivities there may be and on Thursday for the caravan start line?
BAMBAM would you be interested in driving down with others from Chicago on wednesday morning?

This is the last posting I am going to make for the Chicago caravan to the nationals.
Rick and I will see everyone there!

For those going to the nationals and leaving Wednesday morning for St. Louis let's meet at the Ikea in Bolingbrook (750 East Boughton Road, Bolingbrook - (630) 972-7900)
I know it isn't right on 55 or 355 but it seems to be the easist to find. Itaska Mark,Bert and anyone else please post here if this is OK.We'll meet between 10:30 and 11:00 and head out as soon as everyone is there.Rick and I will leave downtown Chicago around 9-9:30 am to meet everyone there.

Hey, a few of us have decided to stay across the street at the Days Inn instead in Kansas City. It only runs about $42 a night plus tax instead of $79 plus taxes (@14.03%, ouch!!) at the Crowne. Total for 3 nights for us came to only $145 and change and you can literally throw a rock and hit the Crowne Plaza, just in case anyone wants to save some cash.

St. Louis update

Just wanted to mention a couple of things for Thursday morning:

Quick run to the Arch at the riverfront for some photos. Leave the hotel at 8:30 a.m. for anyone interested.

After the photo session, meet up at the Kemp Auto Museum (around 10 a.m.) where Kyle has arranged for free entry for caravan participants. :)

Just heard from jwight and he won't be able to make dinner as he has plans to spend time with some family members.

nonuro, make sure to come around on 270 as you won't hit the rush hour traffic through downtown.

Thanks to everyone at the dealership - we couldn't have asked for a better reception. Had a great time on the drive to KC; the last we saw of Barney O and jetfuel they were disappearing over the horizon.... :)
