East meets West. It could be even more grande. Include the north & south. We could all meet in Mid America. driving.gif driving.gif driving.gif




The exact geometric center of the US is a few miles northwest of Lebanon, Kansas. I is in the middle of the Kansas prairie.
Middle Of The United States

The stone marker is the exact center. Considering there are no twisty roads for hundreds of miles, I don't want to waste time going there in a 914. If you find someplace with twisty roads where everyone could meet, I would go.

@ClayPerrine , I don't know much about KS geography other than the Flinthill area is beautiful at sunset. Surely there is a spot that is nominally central that would be a fair pointe for NES&W. confused24.gif

Right now I'm in Kerrville, TX having just finished driving all three of the twisted sisters. I've briefly looked into starting in Chicago and arriving in LA, and then returning (to Saint Louis). Not sure if it will happen in 2021, might be the following year.

That’s quite an epic journey in the making! I’d be remiss if I didn’t swing by and say hello since you folks will be within a couple miles of my home. I will probably have started my new job in ABQ around then as well, though I don’t think I’ll have a lot more time, I should at least be home every night instead of on the road every week.

Would be good to see you folks! I’ll check back in before the event.

I was hoping to be able to bust out of here and go talk to some real teeners. There are few far between here and we don't gather.
Now that I think about it I could probably change that.
So I'm with Kent now and eating popcorn till fall. popcorn[1].gif

Was looking forward to it ... haven't been on a run since 2015 - but better safe than sorry.

I guess I'll just have to drive my new wheels locally, and solo for now driving.gif

Maybe mañana ... I vacuumed and cleaned the interior this afternoon. Then ordered some Mobil-1 (0-40W), some K&N oil filter cartridges, a dash cover and a car cover.

Since I purchased it during the virus outbreak, maybe I should name it 'COVID' confused24.gif

Only bummer - I'm not planning to register it in CA and it looks like I won't be able to get the paperwork to ADOT in AZ real soon Click to view attachment ... dry.gif



Also ... thinking I'm gonna ditch the side stripes ... at least the ones ahead of the front wheels idea.gif

Thanks Mark. thumb3d.gif
You have always been a team player.

The pylon is there to keep the wife from backing into any more vehicles ...

It's raining cats & dogs for the next few days here, so don't expect anything real soon shades.gif

Well, I couldn't make this event regardless but now I don't have to deal with FOMO I suppose. Sorry you had to cancel, JP. Looks like I'll have to wait until fall to hook back up with everyone!
Gint
I was going to roll in the Boxster. But they already cancelled our Moab hotel for next weekend, so I was afraid this event was going to be a Covid-19 casualty.

I'm getting so bored working from and never leaving the house. It's been almost 3 weeks for me already because I got a 'regular' viral cold on Monday 3/9. They did the mandatory 'work from home' the following Monday. Haven't been back to work since, and barely past the driveway.

Took the dog out for a joy ride in the 914 today though.

I told you these guys were awesome.

Everybody who pre-registered should also receive a certificate.
(We are definitely going back to La Posada next time.)

I called La Posada and Riverside Resort to cancel my reservations back on March 24th. The gal I spoke with told me that they would be crediting the $ back to my CC smile.gif

The gal I spoke with at the Riverside on the same day told me that they were closed until sometime in April and that I'd have to call back and speak with the GM after they open again dry.gif
euro911
Received an email reply from the Riverside Resort on Friday:

"As requested, today, the reservation detailed below has been cancelled and $60.86 has been refunded to the xxxxx credit card on file. Depending on the banking institution, the credit may take 5 to 10 business days to appear.

Please take good care of you and yours. We look forward to seeing you, healthy and happy, in Laughlin, Nevada soon.

Best regards,
Your Friends at the Riverside Resort"

FYI........June 5th is a Friday.

I will check if the Victorville R-66 museum will be open but beware I wouldn’t leave my car unattended. That area of Victorville is a crime ridden shit hole.
The City has long abandoned the ideal of anything R-66. Old town Victorville is mostly burnt buildings infested by homeless who get dumped off buses from Los Angeles. Also Victorville is home to the largest Federal Prison in the Nation. Every week they drop paroled inmates off across the street. Barstow is no better.

A good scenic drive is from Barstow along National Trails Hwy “R-66” into Victorville then get back on the freeway. Also if you are not heading down the Cajon Pass by 3pm expect bumper to bumper traffic.

If you get off the 15 at Cleghorn to continue the old 66 Hwy. do not stop for pics or to rest. That entire area is known as a pick up spot for guys who like guys. They hide in the bushes waiting for cars to stop then hit you up.

Sorry to burst your bubble but my 30 plus years as a Firefighter in Victorville warns you to stay away from the old town area. Go to Oscars and enjoy.

When I googled the Museum it said "Temporarily closed"! But come on down John. We'll put you up for the evening and join the group drive which happens to be in my backyard. beerchug.gif

I think I'll pass...maybe drive over to East St. Louis instead ar15.gif
VegasRacer
Thanks @Coondog , I fixed the date.
I have always avoided Victorville and only ever stopped in Barstow to piss. I guess that section of Route 66 will be drive by only. Thanks for the heads up.

@76-914 I didn't expect that the museum would be open, but I thought it sounded good.
Thanks for the offer, I am staying at Oscar's Hacienda on Friday night and then heading home after the rally.

@stevend914 I accidentally took the wrong exit once and found myself in East St. Louis.
It was every bit as lovely as Coondog's description of Victorville.

I need you three plus @914Toy , Oscar and Lawrence to give me your size so I can make sure you get a shirt, since you were signed up for the original event.

I am going to pick a spot along 371 where some Desert Rats will join you. 3 possibly 4 of us. coming from Coachella Valley.

I thought there used to be a glider airport on that road but now I cannot find it.

I'm a Large on the shirt.....Thanks John!!!

Blame me for this years' Route 66, I love it!

We stopped off in East St. Louis a few years back in a Ryder truck towing a car on a trailer, the locals looked at us and started to drool.

Needless to say we kept a right on a rollin'.........
