    It is very slick and the farmer who actually owns the land keeps the path of about 100 yards mowed. The big set of glasses mark the site and they you walk about 100 yards to the actual location where the markers are located. The pilot's name was just added within the last 5 years or so. There is also a nice marker at the Surf Ballroom in town where his last actual concert was held.

    LOL.
    That one is a little hard for my small head to get around.
    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.
