    Why?
    Because somebody either knew him, or knew of his favorite beverage. This type of tribute is visible in the Terlingua and the Lajitas and other small cemetaries here in far southwest Texas, as well as in many other memorial type locations.

    I did not know that. Very interesting. Is there some record of correlation between Holly and Old Style?

    It really is a nice tribute. The items left were just left by fans and visitors. And it was not all that easy to find. But worth the effort.

    I realize it is sacrilegious in Iowa but I got a Maid-Rite once, and I hated it, never again.

    I don't know if this will help but in the early Roseanne show episodes she worked at a place that sold loose meat sandwiches

    Gotta Give it a try

    I just enjoy traveling the country and sampling the various regional specialties. In Minneapolis I had a Juicy Lucy burger, in New Jersey I had a Hot Texas Wiener as well as a "Ripper", in Texas I of course has beef brisket, in Buffalo I had the original Wings and Beef on Wick, and now I will get to try a Loose Meat Sandwich. Some you like and some you are happy to have just said you tried it!

    Not a Sloppy Joes

    The concepts behind loose meat sandwiches, buns cheaper than beef, meat can be made ahead kept hot ready instantly. Loose meat sandwiches were a way to stretch out the beef, last time I ate at one I thought it was to expensive for what we got. In the interest of fairness may have to take a ride over to see Mark Twains place and try out the maid rite in Hannibal Mo.
    Not a sloppy joe = no tomato sauce
    Will have to go up river to Quincy Maid-Rite no longer in Hannibal

    Well if the sandwich in Hannibal sucks there is a great coffee shop & bakery right downtown Hannibal!

    First National Rally..... where to camp?

    Hey all,
    Been riding BMW for years, finally decided to join the MOA, and start going to some rallies. I was looking for some info on how the camping works at the national rally.... is it just show up, and claim a little spot for myself? Riding solo out there from IL, and I'm not a member of any of the local clubs, so I just wanted some advice from some people who've been to a few of these things.

    Thanks in advance!

    Camping is included in the rally fee. When you finish at registration go find a spot and meet your new neighbors.

    If you pre-register once that starts you will save some money and some time at the registration tent/building at the rally.

    Thanks for deciding to join the MOA, your club is going to work to make you feel welcomed. We love our new members. Like our former president Paul just mentioned: show up and set up and be prepared to have fun. Illinois has some great charter clubs. I would definitely get plugged in to your local charter club.

    Loose Meat Sandwich

    Coming home from Elkader,Iowa Moto Guzzi Rally a few years back, we stopped at a gas station for fuel in Waterloo. We were standing by the building stretching our legs as a squirrly looking guy in a Corvette pulled up to the pump. He filled then walked up to pay. On his way he inquired as to where you could purchase one of the famous "Goose Meat Sandwiches". My buddy and I both looked each other with a strange look but couldn't figure out what he meant. Then suddenly Matt says "Loose Meat Sandwich". The guy wanted a MaidRite but had misunderstood and asked for Goose Meat. He wasted no time leaving.
    We've had many laughs about it since.

    Nice ride east of Des Moines

    I just attended an MSF RiderCoach certification course in Cedar Rapids Iowa and thought I'd give all you "there are no good roads in Iowa" people some hope. Go ahead and pull up Google Maps now and look for this route:

    - I80 east out of Des Moines
    - Exit 191 south to Montezuma (you could go east out of Des Moines on other roads to get here too)
    - East on Main Street (highway 85)
    - 85 east turns into Diamond Trail Road and F52
    - Keep going east until you hit M Ave, then turn south
    - Within half a mile, turn back east and catch back up with F52- F52 turns into Black Diamond Rd
    - Black Diamond Road to Highway 1
    - Turn left ()east) on Highway 1

    And the best part of this is that BMW Motorrad of Iowa City is right there after highway 1 splits.

    VERY nice ride, little to no traffic, and you end up at a BMW shop. See, the Des Moines Rally might not be so bad after all....
