    Got back last Thursday from my trip ..... squeezed in all but 4,000 miles in just over 8 days.! Here's an approx map of my route .....

    Outa interest .... how near did i get to some of you folk?? I made a few visits .. nowhere near what i would have liked ...... but felt i could have seen quite a few more without too much diversion.... if time had allowed.

    Whole deal was based on an ''excuse'' to go visit Dallas for a gun show!! :D

    It appears you came within a hundred miles of me.

    It appears as though you came within a few blocks from me! I see you didn't stay long in Kansas though!

    You were pretty close to me if you were in Indiana on Sunday, June 15. BTW, were you trying to avoid OK and if so, what do you know that we don't? :D

    You came pretty close to me here in central Indiana, but you didn't have a stop over.

    I probably saw you at the gun show, but you looked busy.

    :D

    Looks like you may have been in the Chambersburg/Shippensburg area of Pennsylvania, which is about 75 to 100 miles from me.

    I'm guessing that you may have passed within a few hundred yards of me - I live within a few blocks of both I-64 and I-44 in St. Louis...

    Shoulda gone to that full auto shoot in Oklahoma...

    Hey Spackler, where are you?

    I grew up in Marysville, across the river from Harrisburg.

    Just missed you

    Well, you came within a few miles of the house, and I probably drove right past you as you were heading to the gun show.

    Sorry about cutting you off, but those out of state plates are like a red flag in front of a bull.

    If you repeat the trip and find yourself in Garden City KS again, I usually have cold beer and the shooting range is always open!

    Oh my! Great responses .. thx guys. Funny .... several have mentioned about OK :) ... in fact I had planned one stop to visit there but ..... couldn't get hold of the people in time before leaving, and if truth known ... time was just not elastic enough.


    Standing Wolf ........ I guess you are up Springs or even Denver region maybe - my stop over was with a buddy in Pueblo.

    Sisco .... well .... Moday 16 had to be a long day's drive and so crosses KS with only gas stops ..... to make it in time for a stop over with a buddy in SW MO. Travelled mostly on R50 and R160.

    4v50 Gary - Sunday 15, was in fact headin up to NM and then CO .... came thru IN in afternoon of Tuesday 17.

    Flashpoint - the ''big dot'' was actually Heth .... stayed at a Super 8 ... guess we were not too far outa Forest City. Don't anyone stay at that motel ... room stank of cat pee!

    Sylvilagus Aquaticus - I expect I might have seen a few THR guys . if I'd known what to look for ...... was busy yeah ... trying hard not to overspend!! Always difficult.:p

    Mike Irwin - the map ain't over accurate Mike ..... the home area is actually West of Chambersburg ..... in Bedford County - not sure if you are to East or West of me.

    waynzwld - hmmm ... wonder which part of MO ....... stayed near lamar in SW and then headed straight across to IL. Used 160 to getb round Springfield then I44 clear thru to St Louis.

    Spackler ...... hmmm .... close maybe? Not sure where you are but .... Bedford town ain't a great ways off from my A/O.

    cordex .... ''littered your yard''?? So you found that popsicle wrapper! :D

    bogie - sounds like I was real close . yeah .. I44 and then to I64 to carry on then on R50 east. Didn't know about the OK shoot .... but .. off to OH next saturday for one up there, nr Canton in NE.

    Steve Smith - ''breathin your air''??? ..... not sure where you are but coulda been one of those times I smelled burning powder!!

    Test1968 - aha .. that was you cut me up eh?!!! In fact despite usual ''raceway'' on I20 .. was following a buddy from Chgandler who knew the way in .. so survived! Found it quite ''competitive'' tho after leaving show .... fighting thru to Fort Worth before headin north.:)

    Sisco - Garden City eh ....... DAMN!! ..... went right thru, using R50 ..... whatdya know! Had I known I sure woulda made a quick stop for sure.

    I was guestimating where you were.

    You're west of Harrisburg, where I grew up, and west of Fairfax, Virginia, where I now live.

    Seems at the present count ... I missed out on about 4 beers!:( :p

    Mind you, was driving so ... maybe that would have to have been just a soda!

    I hope to head out West again next year .... if so I'll plan my route and see if i can be more successful!:)

    We missed each other by a long shot. I was in Indianapolis on the 15th. On the 14th I was @ Friendship, IN and from 6/4 to 6/13, at Bowling Green, KY.
