Chat/Discussion Kind of like a VW club online - you can sit in our virtual pub and talk about whatever you want to. All opinions are valid, but please no insulting (other than to our intelligence,) abusive or libellous posts. Please feel free to post your opinion on any given subject, but also be aware that others have the equal right to disagree with you - and some will certainly tell you so. No 'For Sale' or 'Want To Buy' ads, plugs for your business, links to 'for sale' ads or Ebay links to your (or your mate's) auction (please use the VZi 'Classifieds' section) - this also includes thinly veiled "What's my car worth?" threads too (please use the 'Dude! What's My Car Worth?' forum) - and please don't use just to post links to other VW forums or websites - we are aware that other sites exist (obviously), but blatant 'plugs' (poaching) will simply be deleted.

Thanks for the updates as always Grizz, hope the trip is a great as usual!

Indeed.


But it’s a different world

Got in yesterday morning

Sally very pleased to see me, sweet woman had done my laundry, made me a fresh bed and got me milk and bread, all unprompted, she also made us kebabs and salads for dinner, quite a shock, all the healthy food.

Slept 90 minutes on couch middle of the day.

Then 9.30 to 07.00 and again 08.30 to 11.00

Harley has not left my side of bed since I got home

Now trying to do some catch up loading of pics and writing.

But head like a zombie.

End of the road trip coming up,fast.

We headed to O’Fallon via two more Walmart’s, trying to find some more of the Chevy truck models for Craig.

No luck there.....


However, he saw a model that I can only reveal in Or toward end November, which I promptly scooped and bought to bring home.

Racing against time a bit, to get to Dennis’ workshop, we made it there at 4.27pm for our 4.30 shop tour and departure to the trade show..

That’s a mailbox.



Craig laid instant clam to this little guy, who knows what the future holds there.




Now those that read stuff, rather than just looking at pics.......

Take close notice.

Not much notice here.



But once inside through that little hole in the wall.......

Cheap beers, and good company abounds.



Great company.

Friends.




And.....

DrummRollllllll.......

Meet Mo !!




Serves the coldest beer you could want to find.



And snacks.







And if, like me, you are special enough.......

She will serve you your own little plate of snacks.

What a girl.

Loved her Cardinals




After a few beers, Dennis bought everyone a round, tipped Mo and we left in his truck.

.


Headed to the lodge he is a member of, and where Adam and Hanna are getting married.

We were in early.



Free bar.



Once again, the food was excellent and I had to force myself not to go fetch more.

Once the raffles were drawn, we headed back to Dennis’ shop to collect the challenger, Imwas driving while Craig operated Waze and found two more Walmart’s.

We also saw this grain truck, soooooo tempting and in great condition





Craig as you know is negotiating a COE in Oklahoma, and saw this model, of course it had to go home.




Got home after 8.30pm and created piles in the spare room, we were being taken to the airport at 10.00 am by Debbie.



Eventually bed time, late in the night with some good byes to Adam, Hanna, Tyler,


What a blast this trip had been.

Next stop St Louis Airport I guess.
