John, my father is once again taking care of my car for me while we're overseas. If this is on, I'm sure he'd love to go - weather permitting. I left it with summer tires on, so if the temps are too cold I'm not sure how safe it would be.

I just realized that I'll be arriving at the Marine Corps Ball here in Moscow right about the time your run is getting underway. Do you have a time/location set yet?

So far it looks like high around 64 and a 10% for you all. 'Course we're still a week out...

Same day/night here is showing a high/low of 38/33 and 50% chance of snow

Should be great weather for all! :thumbs:

I've been really swamped lately and only had time to plot one route. Julie and I drove it a couple weeks ago, and found that its a dud, so I'm probably gonna pull out one of the old routes from a past run. Unless someone else has a better plan.

Got it, thanks. Also noted the change to Sunday. Dad will still be there. Look for my "BLUDVL" Operation Enduring Freedom plates.

John (BLK GXP) the originator and the RC for the event has to work on Saturday and with the chance of rain we are moving the run to Sunday the
4th of November. Same starting time, 10:00 AM, and place, the Motomart (McDonald's) at the entrance to Six Flags.

I hope this will allow a few more people to join in. Let me know if you will now be able to attend. Check either Forum or facebook for more information.

I did a pre-run yesterday and the roads are in good condition. The route John has picked is scenic with a lot of fine twisties. The fall colors are not that spectacular but with the hot dry summer that St. Louis experienced I guess that is to be expected.

We will be meeting at the Motomart (McDonalds) at the entrance to Six Flags on Sunday November 4th at 10:00 AM Central Standard Time. Address is 5695 Fox Creek Road Pacific, Mo. 63095. GPS coordinates are N38.50679 W090.67901

Their price of gas on Friday was $3.19 a gallon for 87 octane, $3.34 for 89 octane, and $3.49 for 91 octane. The prices at the Shell station across the street were the same but they also have 93 octane and it was $3.51 a gallon.

Weather forecast is calling for sunny skies and a high temperature of 55 degrees.

The run will be ending at the Tilted Kilt on Hwy 94 in St. Charles for food and beverages. There is a bank parking lot that we will be able to park in and not have to worry about someone damaging our cars with a carelessly opened door.

Look forward to seeing everyone tomorrow and hope that those of you who were being kept away by the possibility of rain on Saturday will now come out and join in the fun on Sunday.

We had a good run and your Dad drove his butt off, tough to keep up with him. I took a bunch of pics and a couple of videos. I'm going to send them to your Dad on a CD.

You can also checked out the St Louis Sol/Sky page for some of the pics.
