Jest watched Command & Control, interesting. Were y'all in the hood back when, Cliff?

He's talking about the the Titan II Broken Arrow event in Damascus:

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/1980_Damascus_Titan_missile_explosion

"It's laying here right on the ground, Sir!"

Good thing the PALs stopped the 9 MT warhead from detonating, or there would be a big crater taking up part of AR 25.

Cliff, it was back on Sept 18-19, 1980 in Damascus. I think the property is private now, but I would like to swing by and check it out it that is possible. I'm sure Bobby knows all about it.

We'll be there Thursday afternoon. Kay said she would help make the coleslaw.

Okay, got it now. I was still in MS. in 1980. That property is just up the road, it's a grown up thicket now. Nothing there to see. At one time I owned a billboard on that property, so have spent time on it. There is another silo between here & Conway, nothing there to see either. Just a cow pasture now. You've been right by both Kurt, there on hwy. 65.

Tell Kay thanks  :)!

Yes I will be there with Ted as well. I can also be trusted with a BBQ grill and may also indulge in an adult beverage.

Would love to make it out to Cliff's this year, but there are only so many days to play and only so much coin hemorrhage for riding each year.  :(

Hope to see ya at the Nat's Brad?

Tom, you could make my rally & then just hang out for about six weeks. Nationals are just 5 hours north of here, it'd be just making one trip  :rotflmao:.

Maybe we wouldn't even get tired of you  :nananana:. If we did I'd just send over to Brad.

Yes, and the GPS will leave you at the bottom of the hill. So keep going up the hill until either you see the house/airplane hangar (grin) or Cliff comes walking down because you woke him up.

Looks like 99% chance I am coming with a couple of us Northerners. I am going to be bringing the KTM so dual sporting will be my focus.  I will try to get some tracks down loaded before I get there. If anyone is thinking the same and does not want to ride alone I will be arriving late Thursday or early Friday morning.

Looking forward to seeing everyone.

My plans are forming up nicely for this. I plan on leaving Fla around April 2nd and take the scenic route to Greenbrier through Big Bend Country.

After the Rendezvous I'll be heading up to the Con Clave in Carolina to help the south kick some butt. And maybe have a homebrew or six whilst staying at casa Culp for two nights.

A month out on the bike. Retirement does not suck.

I may be dragging another Steve with, too early to know for sure.
