All of us talked last night, at backyard burgers, and agreed that Gate's BBQ on 103rd st would be a good location for this next tuesday meet. Cause I'm not standing in 32' weather for some freekn burgers!
Interstate 70 from columbia, MO, towards kansas city. In Independence, MO (before KC), You'll take I-435 South. It's a cloverleaf right after the I-435 North Exit.
I-435 forms a giant loop around KC, so you'll stay on I-435 and it will eventually peel off the left 2 lanes (watch out for this!) almost like a left lane exit. You'll go on a long sweeping overpass that becomes I-435 WEST.
Keep going on I-435 West for a few miles until you get to State Line Road.
Exit on state line road, go north (turn right since you're coming from the east) about 1 block and Gates BBQ will be on the west (left) side.
West I-70,(118 miles of pure bliss) to I-435 south, exit 8a, toward Wichita. 13 miles. Take State Line Road, exit 75b, toward 103rd St, 0.2 miles. Turn right onto State line road, 0.3 miles. End at 103rd and stateline Rd. (2 hours and 1 minute, and 132.88 miles).
How many cars are we talking about? If I go I'll probably just do a down and back (I have class early wednesday morning, but thanks MD). I have a brief photo op. with a car dealership, but i should be there on time (or there abouts)... assuming you guys choose a time to meet up
