Along 66, October 2017: Gasconade Bridge and Butch Breger (Over the Hill Gang)


OCTOBER 19--  Group to begin fundraising to restore the Gasconade River Bridge near Hazelgreen, Missouri.  Iowa-based North Skunk River Greenbeltt Association (AKA Workin' Bridges) in Grinnell, Iowa, hope to raise $3.5 million by December 31, 2018.

The Gasconade Bridge was closed in 2014.  MODOT plans to build a new bridge next to it.

At least we got to drive over it several times and were at the big bridge rally last year.

They can have some fundraisers at the Munger-Moss Motel in nearby Lebanon.

OCTOBER 20--  Butch Breger, longtime caretaker of the Round Barn in Arcadia died at age 74.  he was part of the Over the Hill Gang who lovingly restored it.  He died October 17, 2017, in OKC.  We were there at the Round Barn (for the first time ever) on October 17 on our 66 on 66 Cruise and there was a man there running the place, but we didn't talk to him.  Wonder of he was Butch.
