A Driving Club...& Story Addition


Recommended Posts


I haven't had time to write anything new for Motor Gnomes recently, but something that my friend, Don, wrote on his 10/10/2011 post, caught my attention...because I agree:

A love a club that wants to drive and enjoy cars.


His post here:



I see so many clubs having well-attended events, including DRIVING events; yet, it seems so hard to simply get people together from various groups/boards in Chicagoland. Maybe someday that will change. For a year, I thought it had, with 65 people attending the 2008 MidSummer Chitown Gathering. But then, every year after that, interest waned, including very low attendance at 3 Meet'n'Greets, 04/16/2011, 05/21/2011 and 07/30/2011; the 4th, 10/15/2011, was canceled. So, I'm done setting up gatherings/meet'n'greets. But, perhaps I should try to organize a drive in 2012...or not.




I HAVE had time to add to my ROUTE 66 STORY. #20 (The Picture), 10/16/2011:



...& the entire STORY is here:

Gluten for punishment? Perhaps, but I am tossing around the idea of organizing a drive sometime next year ... along US Route 20 to Galena IL/Dubuque IA and back, or a different route. Guess we'll see.


Meantime, I may not have new writings until after surgery....
