I was on my way to Stockton today to attend the joint meeting with the Sequoia Chapter and the Avanti club. I didn't even make it to Rio Vista from Dixon when my right front tire blew and stranded me on Highway 12. [V] I was halfway to Hwy 12 on Hwy 113 when I realized I forgot my cell phone. [:0] I didn't want to turn back figuring I made it many years without a phone before, I could do without. [B)]

It figures. It took a homemade help sign to get someone to stop for me. Thanks to my fellow KS staff, Frank and Johanna Smith for waiting with me till the tow truck arrived. [^] I just turned around and went home to order another tire. I wasn't going to continue on without a spare.

Hope everyone had a good time. I was looking forward to this event as it's an opportunity to see others we don't get to see every month. Oh well, I'll be going to Arizona in June. I'll have a chance to network then.

Anybody got any pictures to post?

Thanks for sharing the photos, Anne. We couldn't make it this year due to a "family" event in Truckee.

Thanks for the photo Anne. You must have taken that one from the levee.

Johanna told me you spilled beer all over her car so I thought I'd give you a bad time about it.[}:)]

She wasn't mad but I'm glad it was you that done it and not me!!!;)

Got my Studebaker fix today in Yuba City at Mel's home for needy Studes. We had a great turn out and I wasn't the only one to show up in "Brand X." Johanna also handed me a disc full of pics from Stockton.

I should get my new tire tomorrow and have the truck up and going for the Youth Day Parade in Winters this Saturday.

Busy times are here...:D

Don't feel too bad, Jon. At least yours is up and running. I was planning to come to this get-together as a dry-run for Bess. She's still apart and I'm just getting the garage cleaned out for her. Ed's even down as his wheel cylinders finally gave out. So both the Parkview and the Champ are going nowhere.:(

Well, maybe next month.:) The wheel cylinders should be here by Tuesday or Wednesday and at least Ed will be ready to go down the road.;):D

I sure enjoyed the gathering and the trip there and back. Lots of thumbs up and even a couple pictures taken from car windows. Food was good, company was great and the weather was perfect. Was the first outing of the year for Stu Cool and he enjoyed stretching his legs. We missed you Jon, glad no more damage was done than the blown tire. Was good to see you on Sunday.

The next Karel Staple Chapter meeting is at Franz and Melba Spycher's house in Auburn. This is our annual auction meeting where members donate various automotive and Studebaker pieces and parts. All auction procedes go to the club treasury and a fun time is had by all. If that is not enough to tempt you, it's a pot luck too! Details are on the Chapter web page, here is our calendar of events: http://www.hawktalks.com/page9.php?SessionID=3c9a45bb4bce04558f439

We'd love to have you and any and all Studebaker lovers, or even the curious, join us.
