    Hey there, I'm going to be in Wichita for about 3 weeks starting approx Aug 15th for work. I'll be free in the evenings and moreso on the weekends and would love to meet a few CK5ers while I'm there...

    I've driven through Wichita a couple of times 5 years ago, but other than that don't know anything about the area. We'll have a rental car, but I'll be with a few other co-workers so can't really take off with the car. Also unsure of which hotel or exact dates yet...

    Post up if you want to help me kill some boredom and knock back a few beers. If anyone wheels in the area on Sundays I'd be very cool with that too. :D

    Mapquest say 162 miles... :crazy:

    Looks like my trip will be earlier too, likely arriving the first couple of days of August and staying three weeks.

    That'd be cool if we could hook up sometime while I'm there. I still have no firm dates as to when i will be there, and also don't know exactly which days I may have off. :doah:

    I'm 100 miles north of Wichita. I know there's a few members in town there but haven't seen them on here for a while except for Jagged and gofergurl. Too bad Mitch is not on the base as he was cool to hang around with when I met them twice.
    Need to see what I can do to make a trip down to Wichititty......

    That'd be cool if you could make it down Wes. I'm really struggling to get finalized dates and info right now though...:mad: As soon as i have solid dates and stuff I'll pm you though.

    If you let me know where your staying I'll bring Mitch's truck by to come see you. I'm in Andover and its about 5 miles east of Wichita.

    Looks like we're gonna be staying at the Wichita inn on E Kellogg Drive, so it doesn't sound like we'll be too far from where you are. :waytogo:

    I'm in Maize (NW part of Wichita). Give me a PM, I plan on doing a front axle swap and tranny/tcase swap about then. Could use some help and then we could grill some burgers.

    It would be quite easy to get to Rene's hotel if you guys took 35 all the way to Wichita and got off at the US 54/Kellogg exit, but you would have to go West to get to it bc of all the dambed construction.

    Well, this sucks but it doesn't look like I'm going anymore. We had a key guy quit on us last week and we were already shorthanded. We have a few new guys starting but by the time they're up to speed the install should be done. I'll be left behind to push the remainder of this job through the best I can with the guys I have (new or otherwise)

    Sorry guys (and gal :smile1: ), I was looking forward to meeting all of you...

    That does suck. I was looking forward to a CK5 meeting in Kansas. Maybe some other time though.

    It depends on how long the install goes on for. If I can get some new guys trained up quick enough I may still get a turn in September sometime. A CK5 meet would have been the high point for me...
