    Ok, so I reserved a rental car for Friday night through Monday morning
    If anyone is interested in carpooling and cost sharing I'm looking to spend both Saturday and Sunday at the expo in Columbus...

    The rental is only 80 bucks, will be fuel efficient and we can find reasonable lodging Saturday night.

    Looking to leave Friday night when I fly in and return Sunday night

    That's because our most active poster moved to MI. And Mr. Grumpy pants is in Sweden, Norway or one of those Viking Anglo countries.

    Possibly. Remember, Chicago has super restrictive gun laws.

    I got stranded at the St. Louis Airport due to storms moving through the region; therefore, my plan to cruise out to the AIM Expo is shot.....

    It simply wasn't meant to be...

    It was real, Chicago. Ride Safe...

    I was at Wabeno too. I rode Saturday and had to leave that night to deal with a wet basement... Good times in Illinois now! Not

    Damn Moose! How many cords is that? Will you burn all of that this winter?

    Glad to hear you guys were OK after the tornado. Much damage to the truck?

    The pic of the eagle is awesome. I like your fishing attire. Happy Halloween!

    Come on Moose don't lie to us, you paid somebody to deliver all that wood to you.

    Smudge splits his by hand, of course he only goes through about a trunk (not truck) load a season.

    3-5 years, not bad (sore back not withstanding).

    Glad you "dodged a bullet" while camping. That was too close. I guess you need one of those little weather radios that alerts you to impending severe weather.

    Kinda surprised that the dogs didn't pick up on the tornado and start cowering or hiding under the camper.
