I've posted this on the Cedar Rapids site but thought I would post here also. I need a ride fom Mount Pleasant Iowa to Cedar Rapids Sunday 7/12 about 6:00 pm. Traveling by Amtrak Have not been able to grt through to Greyhound to see if they have a connection through. I figure I can always make a sign "Need a ride to Cedar Rapids to International Studebaker Meet". But it sure would make it easier if I could connect with another Stude nut.

I still have no ride to C/R from Mount Pleasant. Soooooooooo Plan B, how about a connection from Galesburg IL to Cedar Rapids? The shuttle arrives there at 2:25 Sunday afternoon. This is off Interstate 74 on the way to I 80. Getting worried Guys.
My cell #501 247 6828 Be glad to help with some gas money. Thanks

I would prefer a ride on Sunday because of the expenses of staying overnight. I have another option. If somebody is comeing thru Galesburg IL Sunday after 2:30 pm I could make that connection. I arrive there Sunday at 2:25 pm. Might be more people going to C/R
from other places. Sure would like to hear from people. I guess I am just a CASO, But I would be glad to put gas in for the ride.
Thanks Mac and Herb, look forward to seeing you inC/R.

Dick, you know me, I'd be there to give you a ride if I could, buddy. I'm not going through Illinois until either late Monday, or early Tuesday. If you're still stranded I can give you my cell #. If you need help in CR, let me know.

Problem Solved, I just talked to Dick, it doesn't look like I'm going to be able to pick up my 4X4 until during or after the show. Since I can't check into my room until 3:00pm I will be leaving about 5:00am. That will put me about 30 mile from Dick within about a half an hour of his arrival. I love it when a plan comes together.

Hello Dick,

Good to know you are fixed up with a ride. See you in CeRap. I'll make a point of being there early enough to await your arrival.

Dick, I wanted to help, but I didn't say anything because there was no airfield close enough that could handle my LearJet! Maybe next time.;)

I surprised it's not getting pounded out and painted blue this weekend, too. :D

Good point Dave! Truth is, I am going to paint the jet to match the Cruiser when time permits. That way, if I take someone to the airport when I go somewhere, they won't feel so much as if they're "stepping down" when they go from the Cruiser's sumptuous confines to that of the Lear. Strictly psychological trickery, mind you, but effective nonetheless![^]

Biggy: Not next year but the following meet I will be driving my Cruiser to Springfield. Will be more then happy to meet you and your "Leer" at the airport. That way you will be able to travel in the comfort you are entitled to. As a former So-Cal person to a Centro-Cal person enough said.lol
