Re: Planning a group drive. Got any pointers?

I just added this: Instruct the drivers that, when turning a corner, slow down, check your mirror, and confirm the car behind you sees you turning.

Re: Armacost Museum Sunday, November 2, 1 to 4 pm

I'll second the recommendation to visit the museum. The company I work for is owned by the Armacost family and our Christmas party is held at the museum. The last time I was there, there was a nice display of Sunbeam cars in addition to the ones mentioned above. The restoration shop can be seen fro...

Re: 93 in the Northland?

Johnna, you may want to check QuikTrip. I beoive I read they have 93.

According to this site only the HyVee has 93 BUT this site is based on individuals posting locations so it could very well be outdated.

It's been many years but on a trip home from St. Louis I took I-44 to US 50 and 50 all the way through Jefferson City to Lee's Summit. As I recall the stretch between I-44 and Jeff City was very scenic. I encourage a stop at the Missouri State Capital and then across the river just off US 54 at the ...
