    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.

    Back home


    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.

    It gets more interesting as you go to different states.

    Open carry laws etc.

    Thank you Paul.

    Yes, looking forward to how the Blazer comes out.

    Headed to Washington DC then off to Heathrow.


    Craig and I managed to get to Ethyls last night before heading out to meet up with Dennis for some more sight seeing .

    Another quick “real time” update.

    I am behind, but between Dennis’ birthday, Mexican restaurants, Margaritas and mayhem, my time and energy for updates are limited.

    It’s Thursday and our last day out, tomorrow we head to the airport at 10.00am and then fly out home.


    [font size="4"][font color="e61982"]I just love America!!![/font][/font]


    My favourite shop is Rural King, browsing comes with a bag of free fresh popcorn





    The car park is always interesting







    Clothing



    I love the advertising in their public toilets.








    And speaking of rough riders......


    Off to Hannibal and then via Ethyls to see if Kelly is in.......


    She is rather addictive.

    Real time bookmark.


    Headed out of Jonesboro Arkansas this morning near 11.00 heading back to St Louis, well, 40 miles beyond St Louis back to Dennis’ place, I took this pic.

    It’s his BIRTHDAY tomorrow, and we certainly wanted to be here, so it would be a long slow drag through, with stops where and whenever we wanted.

    I was driving as Craig got hit late last night by a Migraine that had not shifted, and still has not shifted.

    Front of the Dually was a field of dead bugs.

    Real time (almost) update.

    05.00

    Jonesboro Arkansas

    Met up with Purple Heart Steve at his home and shop yesterday when we got into town.

    Shop tour then off to find a motel for the night.

    Invited him to join us for a steak (NO DRINKS AS ITS A DRY COUNTY) but at Coltons you can order alcohol if you show ID and join their club.

    I had a rum and coke, Steve opted for a tall glass of Chardonay.

    After dinner we headed back to the motel, only to be confronted by this.......



    My first ever DONK !!!!!!!!


    And it was a Hemi.


    Super nice owner and his girl.


    Loved the car for just how crazy it is in real life.















    Selfie time as dinner did not produce one.







    Certainly a highlight for us.


    Would I drive one, own one??


    Hell no.


    But lovely people all the same.


    Thank goodness for brave people pushing envelopes.



    Off too breakfast at 08.00 then George Poteets place near Memphis at 09.00


    Later.
