Sitting Here at the Munger-Moss-- Part 3: Gasconade Bride Rally

April 23, 2016, Saturday.

Highlights:

**  Breakfast at Hardee's.  Well, we are just now getting them back in northeast Illinois, but still too far away not to take advantage of that great breakfast.

**  Possible crash of "Mom's Laptop."  Weird stuff about another network and it all went dark.

**  Drove the 13 1/2 miles from Munger-Moss east to the Gasconade Bridge for the rally.  A very vocal and energetic group is trying to get the state to do the repairs needed to make it safe again, or, at least, allow it to remain standing, just not for vehicles.  The bridge was closed in 2014.

Good-sized crows in attendance.  I walked the bridge and I could very easily see why they had to close it.  It really needs a lot of work.  Food was being sold and several groups there with booths.  One was the Route 66 Association of Missouri, to which I used to belong but have been considering rejoining.  Now was a good time, so paid my $25 and am aboard again.
