As we are all aware, Shelbyfest 2019 is mere days away. Actually, it is close enough now that it can be counted down as hours. Well, at least for me, since I'm so looking forward to it!:bouncy:

Many members of this site are going to be hitting the roadways to embark on a great journey very soon. Many first time attendees will make this a great Shelbyfest indeed. Some are driving from near and some are driving from quite far away. All will have a common goal and destination in the end. Great times with old friends, meeting new friends, and amazing cars.

We all know the highways and byways are filled with a plethora of crazies. Be mindful of them and avoid them as much as possible. Enjoy the journey so you may enjoy the destination even more!

I look forward to seeing all the smiling faces and making more Shelby friends! I wish everyone safe and fun travels on whatever roads you will be tearing up on your way to Shelbyfest 2019! :grin:

I'm just hoping for no (solid) precipitation, to which eastern CO and KS are prone, along the way.

I hate the rain, but as long as there is no hail, I can deal with it.

You might want to buy some Koni shocks set on full stiff for the car, Ray. Just say'n! And if he points out architectural wonders along the way, just ignore him and keep your eyes on the road!

Ray probably won't drive at such a leisurely pace as you did Reptile … it was great for napping and sightseeing however … :lol:

Missouri's roads were hit pretty hard this year with damage over the winter. There are several repair projects going on now.

You can look at the highways that are currently under construction on the modot website.

We are expecting rain this week and could be heavy in parts of Missouri. We will have to keep an eye on Hermann.

Travel safe!

I'll keep this in mind @03reptile :grin: I'm not too worried though. My car is a performance pack car, so it already has the adjustable shocks if need be. :rofl:

I'll try my best to keep you awake and entertained on the journey @blackcad55. Don't forget I've already got a music CD burned for the in flight karaoke on the way to the winery. >:)

No worries! My first year I felt the same way. It's not about having to remember names on sight. It's about making memories, and having a blast doing it, so you can be sure to come back again.

Side note:

I just hit 1,000 posts WOOOHOOO! It only took me a little over six years to do it. No holding me back now! :grin:

It would help if you added your first name to your signature. ;)

My goal when asking everyone to do that awhile back was to get people here on a first name basis, which makes interactions better for our membership. The internet can be a cold experience. Adding first names (and faces during the month of February) will make this place more like a warm and friendly hangout for friends.

Don't let it worry you, Don. The first year I attended, I was in the same boat! Ford Fest had made us all a lanyard and ID tag with our Car pic and our forum/real name on it. I still bring mine each year. Anyway, you'll get through it as most introduce themselves by their forum names and then the one their parents gave them! Take a little pocket pad along and take notes!
