Yeah, that would be a bad scene!

I'm still thinking of going to the big Flat Nasty event. After driving 2400 miles in the last 8 days, I'm not certain that I want to drive to this. If no one else from Colorado is interested, I may just buy a plane ticket and fly to St. Louis, and then grab an empty seat.

Anyone else interested in this event?

Matt,

I'm not sure I want to go, yet. I'm sure the closer it gets the more I'll wish I was going. I suppose we could go together in one vehicle and split gas. Then it's only about $200 each on gas. Wanna take your 80?

Sounds like you want to go to St. Louis and see your family, though. I don't know if I want to take any extra time.

I wonder how many they need to not cancel the event?

I'd probably be up for carpooling and taking my 80. However, you're right -- I was planning on a day or two with my folks in StL. That was my original plan: see the family, go wheelin'. Just got to figure out what makes the most sense. Having a road trip buddy would make the trip lots more fun and significantly cheaper. That would be awesome.

So, I am toying with the idea of Flat Nasty. I have to be home by 1PM on Sunday Oct 1st though

Hulk

You're looking at ~15 hours of driving, FYI. That's why I decided to buy a plane ticket.

Romer

Hmm, I would have to leave before the dinner and then drive all noght to get home. Doesn't look good. The wife said go, just be home on Sunday

Romer

Looks like they are thinking of moving the dinner and raffle to Friday. That would put in me the proable yes column.

Matt, not all of us drive like you do.

860 miles is about 12-13 hours at 70MPH. I think the speed limit is 75MPH across the planes and Kansas. Microsoft Streets clocked it at less than 13 hours.

Hulk

Well, I did have my wife and two small kids with me. It was probably slower than I would have been on my own.

However...

Don't forget to factor in 3 stops for gas @ 15 minutes each. Maybe one of those stops you'll need to visit the men's room and get a cheeseburger for another 15 minutes. Add an hour to Microsoft and you're at 14 hours. Also, you're going to be leaving the interstate once you get into Missouri in order to get down to Salem. Add another hour for twisty, turny, hilly roads (ever hear of the Ozarks?) That's 15 hours, bubba. :)

I guess we will have to time it and see. Remember, I am a native Coloradoan. We do what we want, like hold Oktoberfest at Larimer square in September (went last night). :beer: :beer:

Besides Kansas is made for 80 MPH to compensate. Microsoft calculated at 65 MPH.

Since, it's the Ozarks, should I bring a gun? Don't want anyone asking me to squeal like a pig.

Kansas is fast, but Missouri is slo-o-ow. It's a highly-populated state comapred to Colorado. I-70 seems like it is full of cars even out in the middle of nowhere.

Since, it's the Ozarks, should I bring a gun?

Last time I was back (July), I saw a sign on the door of the local fast food restaurant specifically telling people that guns were not allowed. I was surprised and asked my Dad about it. He sighed. "Yeah, so many people are carrying concealed weapons now, that those signs are becoming commonplace."

Cool. Wish I would have known you guys were thinking about going. I just didn't want to do the drive by myself.

I'll see you there. :)

For those wondering its 70MPH through KS all the way to KC then it drops to 65MPH through most of the city, then back up to 70 on I-70 in MO.

From Denver (Highlands Ranch) to KC its dead on almost 10 hours (although I have been known to complete the trip in around 9 hours with minimal stops). Its about 4.5 - 5 hours to Flat Nasty (this is a guestimate, but should be pretty accurate.)

Have a safe trip and see you there!

Hey Matt, when you come down on Friday, bring Ice. I'll need it for the Crown.

I'm coming in Thursday afternoon. Also, I remember reading about how Missourians recently learned the secrets of making ice. The skill has probably migrated to the Salem area by now. :D

I don't mind if you pick it up in Salem on your way in. That would be OK with me and Tim, won't it Tim.

Maybe you should bring some beer too!

Actually Michelob Ultra and they have a new amber out!

You think we are going to let you just walk in and hang out with the cool guys and their rigs without bringing an offering?

I actually prefer Fat Tire, Sam Adam's etc. I gained a lot of weight over the summer so I am doing that diet you can drink all the hard liquor you want. Eat all the red meat, eggs, cheese you want. Thus the ultra.

I actually brought a case of ultra to go with my bottle of Crown and bottle of Captn Morgans private Reserve. Not to foget the box of macanudo's.

Who you calling Girlie man, Mr. I am going to fly because the drive is toooooo long!

Yikes....we should have seen this coming! First there was the pink panties, then the mood swings, then the almost strange attachments to cigars, then we find he's worried about his weight....he gets into Mic Ultra then switches to Ultra Amber. Lets not forget he sold his manly boytoy 40! Now it all makes sense why he likes to drink hard liquor with guys while having cigar parties! :eek: :eek: :eek: Nak is in trouble! :eek: :Princess: :hill:
