Sally & I are going to try to make it. If we can, it'll be the closest rally we've been to, only about a 20 mile drive. So between now & then we are going to scout out for everyone some activities. There is a lot to see & do in the Kansas City area within a reasonable drive from the campground. A lot of historical sites, shopping, and not to mention that KC is famous for BBQ, plenty of great BBQ places to "sample"! Probably after Thanksgiving or Christmas, we'll start doing day trips to get info, and pass it along to Larry & Gayle. In the mean time, if anyone has any questions just ask away!

If Jay goes, we go.

Oops, I might have jumped the gun on this one. I checked with Peggy and we may have a grandma/grand daughter conflict during that period. Peggy has taken three of our grandchildren to Washington D.C. around their tenth birthday so they could personally witness the unbelievable dysfunction of our so-called government leaders and bodies. She reminded me that this year is our youngest grand daughter's turn to go as soon she gets out of school so this will take priority. Unfortunately San Angelo schools get out May 27th so they will probably be traveling to D.C. the week of your rally. We really hate to miss the rally and if the conflict gets resolved (different trip dates) we will be there.

In retrospect, I guess I should have said "If Jay goes, we try to go."

Just talked to Kathy at Basswood RV Resort regarding placing us together. For anyone who makes a reservation with the park by the end of February, she will place us in same area. After that time, there is no guarantee. Looking to forward to seeing you there. Roy Evans is scouting out activities and hopefully a good BBQ place. He claims that the Kansas City area has the best BBQ in the country.

Well, since Larry threw me under the bus, I guess I'll have to go over & above to find the best BBQ! Also getting ready to get some tourist spots scouted out in case anyone would be interested. I've lived in the KC area all my life, so I should be able to find a few places of interest. I'm looking at history, generally interesting, shopping, and of course good places to eat.

Hey Roy. When putting together interesting places to visit, don't overlook the Arabia Museum in the downtown market area. It is very interesting. Famous Daves BBQ near Cabala's is a good place to eat. Also how about a tour of the Ford plant?

I see some one doesn't like Famous Daves. Arthur Bryant's is a popular place in KC however, I don't like their sauce. The Smokehouse on N. Oak in N KC would be a good local joint. I'm guessing it is still there. Haven't been in a long time since they opened one in Independence.

You call Famous Dave's BBQ?!!! I class them with McDonalds! Can't find them much anymore, but I used to judge a new BBQ place by the smell outside...hickory smoke, and by the floor when you walked in--if you felt like you were walking on ice when you went through the door, 9 times out of 10 that was an EXCELLENT BBQ joint!!! I can name several off the top of my head that unless you live in KC, you'd never have heard of them!

Along that line, Andy, I guess you call Pop Eye's Louisiana cooking? :o;)

Arriving June 2, Departing June 6.

Tony and I are looking forward to this!

Roy, you will have quite the challenge to prove KC BBQ is better than TX BBQ, especially with all the Texans coming! :cool:

Peggy doesn't trust our current administration to keep her and our granddaughter safe in the D.C. area so she canceled her trip. Therefore, please put us back on the list. Thanks.

We will be there, but I'm not sure of the dates yet, but will know before the end of the week.

A big thank you to Roy and Sally who taking the lead in finding all kinds of interesting things to see and do in the area. Please go ahead and post those things as we can't figure out how to do.

Someone asked about a tour of the Ford assembly plant. From what I understand after 9-11 they suspended all public tours of the plant. The Harley Davidson plant isn't too far from where we'll be at but they don't have weekend tours. If you would be interested we could set one up I think you just show up. They have a free bare bones tour that lasts about 1 hour Mon-Fri. They also have an extended 2 hour tour Mon - Thur that is only in the morning but it costs $35.00 & you get a $5.00 gift card in their store.

Missouri rally event has been updated with attendees and schedule of events. Lots of things to see and do around the area. Some of the points of interest include:
1. Fort Leavenworth
2. Jesse James history (Clay County--many points of interest)
3. Pony Express (St. Joseph)
4. Truman Library
5. Weston--old historic town
6. Steamboat Arabia Museum
7. Harley Davidson Factory
8. Also shopping, gambling, winery's, and lots of other things

Roy and Sally Evans are our experts on all things in this area. He has lived in the area his entire life and has even lived on the Jesse James farm for 7 years.

Hope to see you there. If you haven't registered yet, there is still time. We have 2 or 3 spaces left and could probably fit in more. It is June 3 through the 5th but you can come early and stay late and still not see all the sites in the area.

Thought I'd throw this out there for any of you ladies that are attending the Missouri Rally and are quilters. A little over an hour away in the town of Hamilton is Sally's favorite quilt shop, Missouri Star Quilt Company (LINK (https://www.missouriquiltco.com)). Sally said she'd be willing to go if anyone wants to make the trip. Sally says the owner has a bunch of tutorial videos on YouTube, so possibly you have seen one of her videos. Also for the guys, in the general area there are some worthwhile sights to see. Hamilton is where JC Penny got his start, from there is the boyhood home of Gen. "Black Jack" Pershing, and the boyhood home of Walt Disney. Also in nearby Chillicothe, MO is the home of sliced bread. Supposedly this is the first place in the US where you could buy sliced bread...don't think there is a museum or anything on it, just possibly a mural on the side of a building.

Thought I'd give those coming up from the South a little heads up on some road construction. On the way back from the Arkansas rally, everything went pretty smooth until we got to about mile marker 60 on I-435. At least that is where the construction starts. It was backed up way before that, there are 3 lanes and they have one closed...the far right hand one, so if you get into either of the left lanes they'll be going better. I was in the far left lane, and it wasn't fast, but faster than the other one. It lasts for about 3 miles, after that is't smooth sailing. Also, after you cross the Missouri River you'll be going up a long hill, when you crest the hill (depending on traffic), there will be an amusement park (Worlds of Fun) consider getting into one of the left hand lanes, as you'll be staying on I-435, and it veers off to the left about a mile after the crest of the hill. If you get stuck in the right hand lane you'll have to take I-35 & the construction there is a real nightmare!

We arrived about 4:30 this afternoon. Parked right next to us is a new Landmark 365 with a truck just like Lin and Deb's. I went over and met them and learned that they are Mike and Diane, new full timers that are still checking out their new rig. They are in the Arizona chapter and very interested in joining us at the rally.

Mike,
As far as the flood warnings, I wouldn't worry about it too much. After you leave I-29 I think there was one sign warning about watching for possible flooding, but it's a permeant sign. We haven't had more than a slight shower the past 2 days so things are starting to dry out...BUT, rain is in the forecast for tomorrow & Wed., Wednesday they are talking about a shower & possible thunderstorm in the morning. So by the time you guys get up here any flash flooding "should" be gone. The ground is pretty saturated by the rain we've gotten. If you want when you get closer, give me a call. 816-769-5411

Mike, I don't know if you'll see this before you leave or not, haven't been on here since last night. From Carthage you'll go North on I-49, take that to I-435 North towards, take I-435 North to I-29 North towards St. Joseph, MO. From there, here are the directions from the park's website.
Take I-29 to exit 18 (Hwy 92 at Platte City).
Go east on Hwy 92 for 3.7 miles.
(Look for the big sign on your driver's side.)
Go north on Winan Road for 1.7 miles.
Turn left at Interurban Road.
We're one block up on the left
