Missouri Part II

We did Missouri once before, and I'm coming back.

I'll be in Branson, MO from September 13th-15th. I'm going to my Dad's VVA reunion with him, and since I am neither in my 60s, nor a Vietnam veteran, I will probably be bored.

I will not be mobile, but if some Icrontians want to come to Branson and hang out with me and my dad (and in these small gatherings, he's hilarious to hang out with), I'd love to see some of you.

    Well, I am a Vietnam veteran and in my 60s, so I have some advice on how to not be bored. Listen a little bit as they tell stories (those old farts tell some good stories), make something up that seems to fit (that's mostly what they are doing) and jump right in. You can probably hold your own on anything except combat stuff, and depending on your neighborhood, you may top a few of those tales, too.

    I'll take a look at my work calendar. I'm taking vacation the next week, but I might be able to rearrange my hours to make it possible. Are you planning to arrive on the 13th?

    I'm sure Jimmy and I will crash this shindig with beer and topless women :)

    @BlueTattoo thanks for your service, and welcome home :)

    I love the stories from my dad. I've heard many (but I'm sure not all) of them over the years, and my dad saw a lot of action.
  • primesuspectprimesuspect Beepin n' Boopin Detroit, MI Icrontian
    @Mertesn yeah, I'm arriving in St. Louis in the morning on the 13th and we're renting a car and driving to Branson, which should put us there in the late afternoon.

    Well that's the same weekend that my cousin in Iowa is getting married. I might be able to hang out some time on Thursday and Friday though

    Brian, are you gonna be stuck going to reunion stuff or can we steal you away?

    I have 14th - 16th off from work.

    @TiberiusLazarus road trip?
  • primesuspectprimesuspect Beepin n' Boopin Detroit, MI Icrontian
    Not entirely sure what the reunion schedule is. I'll definitely want to go to some of it. Wanna hang out with the vets a bit. I'll let you know as soon as I find out.
  • primesuspectprimesuspect Beepin n' Boopin Detroit, MI Icrontian
    Alright. We'll be arriving Thursday afternoon. We'll be driving from St. Louis in the morning and we're staying at the Westgate.

    Saturday afternoon I am going to the reunion BBQ thing with my dad.

    Basically it's looking like Thursday night and all day Friday are wide open for me.

    I'm not talking about this weekend, I'm talking about 2009 when there was 8 of us.

    and how do you think Shindig and winterblast got started? with a "let's hang out"

    When MO can host 3 events in a row, Lincoln will award retroactive badges to everyone involved.

    Did I hear something about special event badges for events held 3 or more times in a row? Did I?

    Thanks to this thread, I spent a good minute or so trying to figure out how to say Missouri in an Irish accent just now. If I didn't post this here, I'd have been the only one who ever knew that.
  • KoreishKoreish I'm a penguin, deal with it. KCMO Icrontian
    And how does one pronounce Missouri in an Irish accent? Also why?
  • TeramonaTeramona Consulting Tea Specialist Best Coast! Icrontian
    I'm always surprised when people ask me questions.
