Bob and I are scheming on getting various VMF'ers together in Des Moines, Iowa, home of Vintage-Mustang Forums on Aug. 4 or 5. The State Fair would follow shortly thereafter. I'm willing to travel long distance with Midlife to show my appreciation to Bob for the forum and all, and to contribute towards holding a BBQ/get together/cruise/have a good time. This started out as my longing for good fresh sweet yellow corn, which I haven't been able to get ahold of now for nearly 17 years. Iowa is the home of great corn, beef, pork, and the butt of bad jokes.

Who else would be interested in attending? If we get enough folks, then it would definitely be on...so no maybe's need reply...we would like a more definitive response. What do you say?

Aug. 4 and 5th. I may just have to schedule a visit to the folk's house in southeast Iowa about that same time.
Won't bring Maxine, but will wear the T-shirt. :)

So Randy, you're thinking of driving from FLA to IA? Sounds like fodder for a great adventure! Are you confident Midlife is up to it? Remember - the Heartland is hot in August. Frankenstang should be on the road by then. Wanna swing by Denver and caravan into DesMoines?

Power Tour -? We don't need no stinking Power Tour - We got the "Corn Fed Tour"!

I'm less than 2 hours from Des Moines, so I probably could make it.

My home town is Boone. A trip home would be fun, even better if I get to meet some VMF'ers. Hopefully SWMBO will cough up the fundage for the trip.

I'd live to make it, but it's the same week I am on vacation and I am going up to the Mountains with the wife and kids. It's going to even be hard that week to play with the mustang...Maybe I need to take 2 weeks. I sure would like to shake Bob's hand someday and personally thank him for this forum. Not to mention every one else I feel like I know...
