@SSgt93 Southwest Michigan in Portage. A town once unknown by almost everyone and we’d usually say Kalamazoo. But now that the COVID vaccine is rolling out I’m betting many more of the forum will have heard of Portage.

Love GR. Great town.

Hi BOC, Portage is my hometown too!  Of course when I lived there Pfizer was Upjohn, so that dates me a bit.  I was born there, but moved away when I was 10, went to Waylee elementary, older brother graduated from Portage Central.  My oldest brother was principal at Moorsbridge.  I go back once a year to see family, it's a lot different but as long as I can get an olive burger at West Lake Drive Inn, I'm happy.

You are going to be a sad man next visit...West Lake Drive In was sold this past year and the new owner has other plans for it. What is very cool though, is west lake is where I live. You’ve probably seen my house a dozen times, and never new it. I’m one of the 4 houses they built on the southeast side back in 1995 where the old factory once was. I’d describe it, but it would fail. That said if you are happen to stop in for a French dip or some whitefish dip at Cove Lakeside Bistro next time you are in town, mine will be the one with a new vibrant blue 32” KK sitting out back between the two decks. (Hopefully I’ll have back there by then).

I lived about a 5 minute bike ride down Newells Lane from west lake, had a friend who lived on John Dr. and I would go there to swim and fish quite a bit. I heard rumors about the drive-in, was hoping it wasn't true, but that is a unique spot so I'm sure it is in high demand. I'll definitely hit Coveside next time, smoked whitefish dip and a cold beer always hit the spot.

Congrats on the delivery.

Too bad it will have to stay for a few weeks while I wait for this snow to melt a bit.

I'd be out there with a flame thrower, if necessary, to clear a path to its final home spot. Like the one vulture said to the other, "Patience, Hell! I'm ready to out and kill something myself!"

Not it’s final home or even with the tables yet, but she’s off the block and ready for fire soon.

Yay!  She looks beautiful @BOC.  What do you think of your KK now that you have finally got to see one up close and personal?

@Tekobo

The simplest way to put it...it’s easy to understand why you have 3.
