triplet

I am looking for some triplet riders. I am getting a triplet this week from precisiontandems http://www.precisiontandems.com/catframetandem.htm, very excited, but have found very few resources for triplets on the net (Precision tandems is about the only site). We currently ride on two singles (my girl is on a child seat on my single). My stokers are as follows: my 4 year old girl will be in the middle. She will be with me on almost all rides (about 5 times a week). My wife will be on the back and will only be with me about 2x/week.
A couple questions:
1. I would love some stories from triplet riders about riding with kids, weekend trips, etc. (just fun stories, pics would be great too)
2. Any common mechanical or technical issues that might be specific to triplets.
3. Does anybody live in the Kansas City area. Tandem or trip riders, I would love to make some cycling friends.
Thanks

I know they are a long way away from you, but try MBS Tandems, in Canada.

They own and have toured extensively on a Co-Motion Triplet. They may be able to answer some of your triplet specific questions.

There is a Kansas city area tandem riding group called the flamingos- (can be found by googling flamingo tandems or off precision tandems site) I am surprised Mark didn't tell you about them. It is getting late in the season- most rides are summer time. My wife and I ride with them, also ride regularly in the Lee's Summit area ( all year long)- would be happy to ride with you some weekend ( soccer games allowing) contact us via private message for more info-
