Kansas City/Wichita

Postby gumbynotpokey » Mon Sep 15, 2014 5:16 am

Heading to IL and KS for vacation this week/next week. Praiser is out there. Anyone else?

Who knows, this might turn into a photo-op.

My only dilemma is this: I promised not to post photos of you-know-what in all of 2014. SO, if that happens, it can't be ME doing the posting. Right? :mrgreen:

Hey! You got my message!

I know Intrusted is here in the Wichita area...
I remember seeing one or two in the KC area over on the Museum boards.
Don't recall who it was, though.

Now that you have my number, give me a call or drop a PM if your schedule will allow a get together. Leave a message if I don't pick up. I can't hear it at work most of the time.

Any other flatlanders hanging around??

Unfortunately we were WAY too busy while out there. Hadn't seen that part of the family in TOO long. Did get to catch a Sporting Kansas City match at Sporting Stadium. Amazing game and AMAZING crowd. Took a shot of the 980 while I was out there and plopped it in the Cobalt thread in the Club area.

Sorry I didn't get a chance to connect.

No sweat man, I totally understand. Family time trumps all else in my book. Glad you got to make the trip and see your clan. Hope you all can get together again real soon.

Saw the pics of that awesome Black Cobalt. It's a beauty.
Now you need to spend some time getting reacquainted with that new fretless!

Well, I took it with me to show the oldest, have him play and hear it.

:oops:

Oh, and here's the proof of the trip:

Image

It was Sporting Kansas City 3, Real Esteli (Nicaraguan team) 0. The fans in "The Blue Hell" aka "The Cauldron" were exceptional, as always. Gosh, British-style football chants and songs are like none other.

The ruby CT made the trip, we were reunited with the greenburst DC400, and got to hear the C980TMW live. :mrgreen:

I was wondering if you had packed it for the road since your whole family seems to be musical. Sounds and looks like you had a fun trip.

The pic looking down the highway appears to be from the driver's side of the car, though. :naughty: :shh:

The other one showing the open prairie is textbook Kansas!
Hope you got to experience the night sky outside of city lights at least once.
Nothing like it with the wide horizons we have.

Take care my friend.

Yeah, our local teams are doing pretty well this year. I don't really follow sports, though, so I haven't been inside the Sporting stadium. It looks pretty awesome, though :)
