Post Come hangout with Roy and Dawn Jonas Feb. 4
Roy and Dawn Jonas will be staying at our house in Troy on February 4th. They will be here Saturday afternoon. Come hang out and spend some time in the garage, sit by the bond fire & have some fun welcoming them back to MO! Bring a drink, chair and a snack. Hope to see you then.

Sounds like a good time Sean! I may have to stop by. Maybe if the weather cooperates I can dig "Das Box" out of his winter nap.

I'll try to get that Saturday off on my Feb flight schedule so I can attend. The Jonas's are borrowing one of my cars for a day or three while they're here, so I'll hopefully be there to give 'em the keys too... I saw them last month out in PHX while on a layover, but I'm looking forward to seeing them again here soon! Bring it on, Roy an Dawn!

Yay! I got that weekend off in my flight schedule, so I'll be there to toast Roy and Dawns return to the St. Louis area. How about any of Roy's other friends, who else is coming out on Saturday? Shawn, what do you need, what should any of us bring besides our beverages?

A great time was had by all. A lot of Roy & Dawns friends made it to the Sides compound for the evening of friends, beverages, chow and hanging out. It was great to see them both, and a huge thank you to Shawn and Susan for providing such a fun place for us all to get together to celebrate the Jonas's return to STL! Kathryn and I will be taking them out for a late lunch this afternoon and then dropping them off at the STL airport for their return to Phoenix this evening.

Thanks again to everyone who made the trek to see the Jonas's!

It was a good night hanging out with everyone that came to see Roy and dawn. I wish I would have gotten a video of the parade of vw's coming down the driveway. We will have to do it again.

Post Re: Come hangout with Roy and Dawn Jonas Feb. 4
Thanks for posting up your photos Ted! To explain to the uninitiated, our VW buddy Roy Jonas moved out to Phoenix a few years back and Roy and his wife Dawn returned for a long weekend visit. Shawn Sides scrambled and hosted a Saturday afternoon party at his home in the country out west of St. Louis near Troy, MO. The day was cold (in the 20's F) but nice and there was no salt on the roads.

A bunch of friends made plans to drive out to hang out with the Jonas's, and I wanted to honor Roy's assistance and support with the restoration of the Double-Cab by breaking it out of the garage for a run out to the party. A bunch of us gathered at a small new microbrewery for lunch and an "oat sodie" and then caravaned together out to Shawn's home for the festivities. I was probably the most "speed-restricted" by my 36hp drivetrain, and maybe the only one who had previously been out to the Sides ranch before, so they put me in the lead to set a slow pace to and from the party. God, I hate uphill grades, even slight ones! It was nice to put another 50 or so miles on that beautiful formerly NOS trip speedometer! Cruising at about 55mph, I hope I didn't slow you guys/gals down too much!

Thanks again to Roy and Dawn for giving us all a nice reason to drive old VWs in mid-winter in Missouri, to the Sides for hosting the bash, and to everyone for coming out to play!

Bill
