Gauging Interest: Springfield, MO
« on: March 19, 2018, 09:38:10 AM »

Gauging Interest in a possible Springfield, MO roadmeet. Looking at early July (tentative).  13/44 Diverging Diamond, parts of old US66, Galena Y Bridge, maybe part of old US65 or US60.
Bass Pro Shop will be on your own time ;)

Alternative plans would be early October 2018 or April 2019

Sounds like a fun time to me.  Been through there without stopping previously.

There's a paperclip icon? I don't seem to have access to it.

Same here, if it happens to be July 7 then that is 100% doable since I will be in St Louis the next day for a toy show, easy trip up I-44 for me. :nod:

It sounds wonderful but unfortunately I won't have enough vacation time in order to make the trip.  Perhaps another time, should someone organize a meet in that area.

Only a ~5.5 hour drive one way for me, so put me down as a tentative maybe. Have to see what else I get involved in/want to do this summer. I could much more likely do it if it were in the fall or spring next year.

I must not fear.
Fear is the mind-killer.
I will face my fear.
I will permit it to pass over me and through me.
And when it has gone past I will turn the inner eye to see its path.
Where the fear has gone there will be nothing, only multi-lane roundabouts.

I'm very interested as long as the timing is right and I don't have any conflicts. However, if an Oklahoma meet is happening this year, I'll probably have to choose between this meet and Oklahoma.

Sure. I can collect some counties and miles in Missouri with this.
Jason's suggestion for July 7 sounds good to me. Otherwise, come October my vacation time resets and I won't have to pick n' choose.

It's certainly not happening for me in 2018. Fingers crossed for April 2019!

Gene is twisting my arm for July, but the more I try to work on this, the more I think I'm going to need more time.

If Gene is willing to help you get it done for July, that's fine. If not, then his opinion is worth as much as mine.

I'm going to take this off the table for 2018 and aim for Spring 2019.  I'll know more in a couple weeks.

Spring 2019 may be doable for me. Way too early to know, but definitely interested. I fully expect my only experience in Missouri before that point will be driving through on I-70 this summer.

Quick note about I-70 through Missouri - it sucks monkey balls.  Took it once and swore up and down not to again.

Oh, I'm aware. But if I want the clinch, it needs to be done once. Key word: once.

I-70 was rougher than a dried corn cob when I was going up there regularly over 20 years ago. Apparently they haven't done anything to it since then.
