    If it's in St. Louis, and more than just three or four dudes sitting around pulling their pud then I would be down for a meetup or two.

    St. Louis will be easy for me to make a weekend trip for. I live in KC, so traveling over four hours for a weekend trip is really hard to do.

    since I'm the only one from here, I say you have it in Cape :lol 


    seriously, I'm game for a meetup, but I honestly would be dependant on where due to funds.

    I agree. Things are pretty tight for me right now. Like Alphie, I am in the KC metro area.

    well it seems as though a majority of us are from MO, so somewhere in MO makes sense, two of us from west MO two from east MO (though Redline is way far south). If I had more comfortable living arrangements right now I would definitely say St. Louis, and we could go out and do some hanging out around my place, but it is tiny.

    I know there are several others from this area on the boards, either no one is interested or doesn't know about this thread. Are we thinking of just meeting up for dinner? or drinks? or maybe a whole day of madness?

    I would love to. I could use a weekend away, but I have school so it would be kinda hard for me.

    For those voting KC what do you think of Joplin.

    I'm about
    5 hours from St. Louis
    4 hours from Kansas City
    2 hours from Branson
    2 hours from Springfield
    1 hour from Joplin

    Technically, some of the states you listed aren't in the midwest(AR, OK), and there's a bunch that you forgot, that are in the midwest. :)

    Put me down for one more vote for KC.

    I would be interested in dinner or something sometime. Some sort of meet and greet somewhere easy.

    I wouldn't really be opposed to a meet 'n greet, though it would depend on where and when it were to be held.

    I'm in the KC area, by the way. More specifically, the suburbs on the Kansas side.

    Sounds like it's getting closer to REDLINE all the time!

    Well around here they classify it as the midwest, whether thats right or wrong who knows. I'm all for a meet in joplin since well I live here, but I could do KC, fayetteville, tulsa, any of those areas arent too far of a drive for me.


    As far as plans, I was thinking dinner, conversation, so sounds like KC or southern MO has been the most popular selection, of course for those who might be low on funds, would some consider carpooling?

    I'd definately be interested in a meetup. I'm in the KC metro area (Olathe). Would also like to trade swap parts if anyone is interested.

    Sounds like the KC area would be the easiest for most that are interested. Anyone have any ideas as far as where to meet, or does someone have a big big house everyone could gather at? Im also interested in trading parts/tfs or what not.
