Weather Underground is saying 40% chance of precipitation on Monday.

The Weather Channel is saying 10% chance.

Intellicast is calling for isolated T-storms on Saturday, scattered showers Sunday, and nuthin' but clouds on Monday.

When I checked this morning, the local TV weather was showing rain on Monday, but now they've reverted back to cloudy. It's hard for me to trust the local TV weather, however. I'm gonna go with Intellicast on this one.

Hey, Just noticed this thread. I grew up in Elkhart over by Pinewood. Class of 1981 ECHS. I noticed your aerial pic and thought it looked familiar and sure enough, I must have passed your house 100 times going back and forth to visit with Robin Dempsey who lived on the river in the back part of your neighborhood from 78-81. Usually it was on my scooter, and often in the middle of the night going back home. I don't know why I have such strong memories of buzzing through the cornfields at 2am. Starting to seem like a lifetime ago.

Had one just like this.

Ha ha! That's awesome. Yeah, I grew up near here, just across the river in Willie's River Manor. Concord HS, class of '87.
This should bring back some memories, then;

I'm in southern ontario, Canada. Just west of waterloo. If there is a meet that isnt too crazy far (either side of the border) I would be down to swing by.

Also, So far for me, law enforcement has been awesome with all of my mods so far.

Chaz; name does sound kinda familiar, but that was a long time ago!

Neon; google maps says it's 392 miles and only 6 hours, 41minutes. What's your definition of "crazy far"?

I'll be going 800+.

Every time I've met up with Ecomodders, it's been a great time. Singly or in groups, I've always enjoyed the experience.

just give me a holler a few days before and we can see if it would work out. I might have to go a day early and stop by a relative who is on the other side of the state, so I might also have family things.
Spotter, check for PM...
