Default October 12-14, 2018 Midwest Git-together Thread.

Good morning everyone.

First for all the past Midwest GTG I want to thank Windy for hosting, but
due to his change of address. We decided to move the GTG to the Lemke
Compound this year. Initially I thought to keep it in the spring, however
due to some work complications (of what I cannot comment on yet, but
trust me I will later) I am going to have to move it to the fall.

I am thinking September or October. But nothing set in stone.

That is all I have for now...

Gonna be a 7 hourish drive for you, I hunt near Hixton.

I can do Hixton in five and a half with only one quick stop for fuel.

Maybe you and Jason can ride together he is an hour or so east of you.

Hmmm. 10 hours from the place in Ontario, but should be done the move to AB by then, which shows 24 hours.

Somewhat doubtful either way, but one never knows.

maybe you could do it the weekend, my wife’s niece is marrying her girlfriend, in a oceanside ceremony in New Hampshire, later this year. I’m seriously looking for a reason not to go. The thought of a wedding and a weekend with her family, is almost a wrist slitting situation.


Help me please!!!


I believe the GNAP, could legally travel to Illinois, I believe the state of Ohio, should has either forgotten or forgiven me for the Toledo Incident of 2013.

Since the trip through PA, is quick, the Williamsport Incident of 2016, hopefully won’t be an issue.

Well shit that adds an hour to the trip! I'll keep an eye on what dates you discuss and do my best. 1st weekend in October could be good or bad. That is the annual girls ride - she may or may not need my sleeping quarters that weekend.

Yea, you're a couple hours west of me. If you want to commute together, keep in touch.
