      Did that place on wednesday. Loved it. Great place to stop for the grandgirls. Before we saw Reefer madness, which was terrific we went to truckhenge, where a topeka artist has buried trucks and boats, stone-henge style. Way goofy. loved the time at the zoo and museum

    The trip was a lot of fun! People were friendly. It was nice to sit and eat and chat at the cute diner. This was my first day trip and it exceeded all my expectations. I can hardly wait until the next one.

  • Maryann K.

    It will be in the 90's on Saturday. I was just thinking of going to the diner and then the museum. I have asthma and the hot weather really affects me. Does anyone just want to go to the diner and museum?

    June 17

  • Maryann K.

    I am only going to go to the Zoo, Spangles and Museum. Does anyone want to carpool with me? I can drive. I live in Shawnee.

    June 15

    • Maryann K.

      I was looking at the weather for Saturday. It will be 91 which is quite hot for me. I have asthma and it is hard for me to walk around when it is hot. Also, there is a chance of thunderstorms too.

      June 17

    • Maryann K.

      I was just thinking of maybe going to the diner and the museum after!

    It's was cool watching the Capitol Dome renovation. I work in Topeka, not far, so it's visible from here. I'm excited that you can go up in it now. When I was a kid, you couldn't because of the structure damage from a tornado a long time ago.

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
