I think we are going to try to make it with my orange Goblin and Adam's Red Goblin. My son that has the blue Goblin doesn't know if he can make it yet.
 
Who's down for another midwest meet? Chad did a great job organizing the 2019 meet. Everyone had a blast. I'm hoping this year we can have more Goblins and I want some feedback on my ideas for the areas and dates to see what works best for the masses.

When we drive to Houston (2 or 3 times a year) we always head south from Fort Smith and drive through the Ouachita National Forest. Hwy 259 has some great twisty and there's alot of areas around this area to stay. Mena Arkansas, Broken Bow, Beaver Bend all have camp grounds and cabins.

I haven't personally drove this road but it looks great.

If there's enough interest in this area the wife and I can sit down and try to plan out some routes we can take. Early May late April sound about right for most folks?
I'm in

Kaleb and I are thinking about it. I've been working hard to get a good tune on the car first after changing a few things and it depends a lot on that.

Wife is getting cold feet. She's worried about social distancing (we are old folks). Are the meal plans to all sit at one table or have individual tables? Russ

I would say set where and how you want. me my self will most likely stay out side as arthritis in my back flares up when it gets cold. Not being anti social just watching out for my self.

The restaurants might be take out food only... depends on how this plays out. Might be eating beside our cars. At least we are eating.

Last time we broke off to individual tables. We will definitely be practicing social distancing. It's one of those better safe than sorry type of things for sure. We can stop for pictures and chat it up outside some where where there's plenty of space to spread out.

We're planning on coming down for at least one drive. We only live about 65-70 mins (probably less in the Goblin HA!) from Branson so I doubt we'll stay the night.

Hwy 76 going through Cape Fair and Reeds Spring is a curvy, hilly road that should be fun in a Goblin.

For the Cassville side of the loop, you might consider going down Highway F to 112 and go through Roaring River park. Where the map shows the Cassville dot, there's no place to turn around or stop. Alternatively, there's a store at the top of the hill to the west (where the road turns north) that would be enough for us to pull over and let everyone catch up.
