Default Friends In Sunbeams Itenerary and Update

While this is not an Invasion, I'm posting here in order to "spread the word".

This is essentially a driving event and will be held in Greensburg, Indiana.

Event calendar of events:

Monday, June 19, arrive at the Quality Inn. Supper at your choice of downtown restaurants. Very good food at "everyday low price".

Tuesday, June 20, early lunch at Stories restaurant, followed by a back road drive to Madison, an old river town that is very much alive. Visit a saddle tree factory museum. Supper at the Key West Shrimp House.

Wednesday, June 21, back road journey to Connersville. Eat lunch at Kunkels, a genyouwine '50's drive-in that has been in operation since 1954 (second owner). Visit the Connersville Museum, which contains several one of a kind automotive gems. Stop at Metamora, a historical 1840's canal town featuring the canal, a 50 hp water wheel and a covered bridge aquaduct. Stop at a very picturesque canal feeder dam. Supper in downtown Greensburg.

Thursday, June 22, boring (relatively) drive to Columbus, with its renowned architecture. Visit the Cummins Engine company museum, featuring their famed Indy Diesel racer. Lunch at the Columbus Bar (claimed to have the best tenderloin in Indiana), dessert at a 100 year-old soda bar with home made ice cream. Return route to Milhousen over very Alpine friendly roads that feature two (2) covered bridges. Supper will be at Stones Family Restaurant.

Friday, June 23, Farewells.

Come and enjoy great food, relaxed driving over hilly, narrow, crooked roads and investigate interesting stuff you cannot find anyplace else. By the way, the term "back roads" includes roads (paved) that you will not believe.

Our motel is the Greensburg Quality Inn & Suites $60/night plus tax. As the manager put it "It isn't the Marriot, then again, its not the Marriot price". A block of rooms is being held under the name "Sunbeam".

TRUTH IN ADVERTISING
This event was designed to accommodate a maximum of 12 cars. At this time, there are only two cars enrolled. In order to minimize participant disappointment due to low turnout, one week prior to the event, we will notify everyone of the number of participants and everyone should feel free to cancel. While we are willing to continue with only one other car, it is possible the event will disappear due to "popular demand". Or lack there of.

Bill, How much interest so far?

I talked with Allan B and after the trip back from Yellowstone He is tired out but wants to make the trip up your way.

Eric is coming too.

If Allan attends, that will bring our total cars to 5, including ours.
