Quick Jack will be at Carlisle with some really good show discounts.  Chris will be in the same spot as last year to answer all your questions.  But you don't have to be at the show or have a Corvette  to get the discounts.  Chris is taking orders now through the weekend at least.  Give Chris a call at 304-629-4768.  And tell him Rich sent you.  ;)

Got there Thursday and it was sweltering hot all day.  Didn't do too much walking around except to the Quickjack tent to see Chris, and the Adam's tent to see the gang.  By 3:30, we couldn't take it any more and headed for the hotel for a shower and nap before dinner.  Found a great place that serves up a 15 oz Delmonico steak, salad, monster baked potato, green beans, and dinner rolls for $15.  The steak had to be bigger than 15 oz, because it came on it's own platter and filled it end to end.  Did I mention the onion rings on top?  Fantastic steak and dinner.  Turned in early  Thursday night, up at dawn on Friday to find it rained overnight.  Apparently it rained fairly hard because the crew at Carlisle went around and undid any canopies still on the pop ups around the grounds, mine included. So our chairs were wet, but we understood, and we were really the ones in the wrong for letting it on overnight.  Rained till around noon, then quit so I did a quick wipe down with the new Jumbo plush drying towel to get the water off quickly, and then wiped her down with Ceramic Waterless .  Looked great.  Weather was much cooler Friday, to the point I went and bought a sweatshirt just to take the chill off  the old skin.  By the time the Adam's party got started, the sun was shining and it warmed up.  I took Adam's advice to heart and DIDN'T park on the street. But there were no cops to be seen anyhow.  All good.  Many thanks again Adam for the food and drinks.  Adam had two raffles during the party to raise money for his choice of charity (Ronald McDonald House), and whatever money was raised (over $1000!!!!) , Adam matched.  Class act all the way. 

Saturday was an experience.  Headed to the fairgrounds from the hotel about 7:30 a.m., about 3 miles, and by the time we reached the main road into the fairgrounds, it was bumper to bumper.  Fortunately I knew a way around it and got in a lot sooner than others.  People around me sat in traffic for 2 hours or more just trying to get into the arena.  I've never seen Carlisle this packed in 17 years.  Ever.  Weather was perfect, cool and in the 70's and sunny.  That, and the new C8 on display drew throngs of people there.  It was all organized mayhem though. Made me laugh that with all those people,  I must have walked past the Meguiars tent a dozen times, and saw a couple people there maybe twice.  But Adam's tent was busy non stop.

Anyhow,  the show was great, the party was great, the weather was great (for the most part).  So no complaints.  

Here's a couple of pics.  The steak,   me and my buddy Art who stopped by, and the new C8.  Beautiful car.

Lance made a comment earlier today that there is something BIG in the works for next year, and that they'll be making an announcement later this week.  Guess we'll have to wait and see.  Good to spend some time with you and your mrs. .  You'll enjoy that steak.  Almost worth the 2 hour trip anytime!!

Thinking about flying out for a couple of days of the show. Any suggestions on where to stay and which are the best days to attend?

We're still on the fence about going or not. I'm almost 74, wife is 68.  We're both at the wrong age to get this crap.  We still have our hotel reservation and our reserved spot on the field.  Going to wait till the first or second week of August before deciding.  We may opt to just drive down for one day depending on the weather.  But numbers are on the upswing again. Who knows what it will be like a month from now. But we're in row IE, space 50 again this year.  And Mike, Ladder13, is right down from us in space 56.  So Adam's gang will be well represented.

Mike, Friday or Saturday are the best days. Thursday is more of a set up day, and Sunday is just lame.   As for where to stay, most of the closer hotels are sold out because people book them a year in advance, usually when they check out the previous year.  You most likely will have to find a place in Mechanicsburg, Harrisburg, Chambersburg, or maybe Shippensburg (see the pattern here?)  I don't recommend going thru sites like Hotels.com because I've seen a lot of people show up at hotels and the hotel says they never got the reservation. So deal directly with the hotel you like.  The closer to the fairgrounds, the higher the rate, so be prepared if you're lucky enough to find a close hotel that's not a flea bag. And there are plenty of those.   Also, that's usually check in weekend for Dickinson College so that limits hotels as well.
