Thanks to MISSL and Condolences

MISSL members are to be congratulated for putting on a really nice gathering. Many thanks and hope I don't see Detroit again !

Condolences to all of you who have to travel those CRAPPY lunar landscapes that somebody at the DOT calls roads.

I will also add a big Thanks to MISSL and members. They know how to treat out of staters!
I look forward to doing it again and being more involved.


Sad to say, but I was a little jealous of the roads, IL couldnt even come close with the roads up there, especially having them made of cement. Over here its mostly cheap black top that buckles a month after, later for DOT workers to only put up a "bump" sign. Oh by the way, you have to pay tolls up the a** for it too.

Again, many thanks to MISSL

Yes, a big thanks to MISSL for their very hard work in pulling off the ISSCA Nats. Your efforts are very much appreciated.

And I am in agreement about the roads. Those were simply the worst condition roads that I've ever driven on in this country. I bet there are a lot of rich dentists in MI.

And I know know that the "MI" abrreviation for Michigan stands for "Mosquito Infested". They tore me up!

But the MI people were very hospitable and I felt very welcome there. It was a great trip despite these minor inconveniences, and I would do it again in a heart beat. Thanks again!

Pfft, you all were on the good roads. See them after winter when the craters open up.
