As of now, I'll drive to Versailles OH in 2 weeks (Tuesday, 05/15/2012 - Friday, 05/18/2012) to help Mike at Mike's Montes get more pictures on the website & re-write some of the descriptions (which I've already started). It'll get me out of the house a bit & give me an albeit brief road trip.

Not sure yet what routes I will take to & from, but I will most-likely leave Elgin IL before or right after lunch on Tuesday, returning home late Friday evening. If you want me to stop between here & there, or if you're in the Versailles OH area & want to meet up Wednesday or Thursday evening, please let me know....

UPDATE!
As of now, this is still a possibility. Since I'm now in "panic mode" (more medical bills + unemployed with things I've worked for disappearing), a road trip may or may not be a good way to relax....


If you want to meet up along the way or in Piqua OH, let me know.

THURSDAY DINNER

TIME & TOWN remain the same; leaning towards 6p-8p (rather than 7p-9p).

PLACE is TBD. For location reference, BOTH restaurants are on the west side of I-75, but are on opposites sides of US 36.



TRAVEL ROUTE

Still TBD, but since I can "take my time" Tuesday, I may take the ALTERNATIVE route to OH. Then, on the way home Friday, I may take the DIRECT route.

If things work out, I'll drive a silver Dodge Charger.

HOWEVER, with apologies for the late notice, plans have changed ... Thursday dinner CANCELED; different travel plans, too.
