Just checking to see who all is going to Carlisle for the Ford gathering. I may have a weekend pass and cash to do a little shopping.

My wife and I and three other couples from our little Mustang club should be there Saturday and a good portion of Sunday !!! Is there some way for us to stick out in a crowd, besides the obvious..... ??

Haven't figured on where to meet yet. Do you all have reservations at a Motel in the area, yet? Maybe we can meet there? Just a couple of ideas.

BY THE WAY......CHECK FOR MOTELS IN "HARRISBURG" PA AREA......ABOUT 25 MILES EAST OF CARLISLE.....
CARLISLE ONLY HAS A FEW MOTELS.....RIGHT OFF THE PA TURNPIKE.
I'M A 120 MILES FROM CARLISLE...TOO FAR TO CRASH AT MY TINY 1 BR APARTMENT.

Eddie,
Thanks for the info. I was getting ready to start checking hotel info on-line. Great timing.

Frank,
How about some direction to the show site for folks that haven't ever gone before. Thanks!

I'll be there Saturday, also without the 'stangs (need room for parts!!).

We'll have to figure out a way to meet up. I'd love to meet all you guys....

I will be in the Explorer, since I am taking the long way to Lakehurst, New Jersey. I will be shopping for some parts for the Stang. Mostly looking for an 8" third member in the 3.55 range. Also looking forward to meeting up with several M&M Members.

Pretty much what Eddie said...pick up I83 north to the PA Turnpike...then go about 20 miles to exit 16 onto Rt. 11. Follow that to the fairgrounds.

Have 65 cents ready for the turnpike toll between getting off 83 and jumping into Carlisle.

Also be prepared to sit for a while on Rt. 11 into the fairgrounds. As you can imagine, everybody and their brother wants to go too, so the 3 or so miles between the exit off the turnpike and the fairgrounds is usually backed up (and then some!) whenever I arrive. And I typically roll in between 8:30 and 9 am. I make decent time for a 120-mile trip, but those last 3 miles could take upwards of half an hour.

Parking fees are typically $5. There are the occasional "gougers" who pawn out their front yards and charge $15, sometimes up to $25 to park. But those guys are right across from the grounds. The elementary school nearby has a good sized field that a lot of people park in. And you only walk a couple hundred feet to the gate.

Dave, if you're coming from Lakehurst, take the Jersey Tpk to the Pa TPK (that's the beginning of the Pa Tpk)...that'll be a Loooong straight run in PA to exit 16, probably about 160 miles.
Think the NJ TPK to PA tpk is exit #6 (Jersey Tpk) but check on that.
Bring cash....more bartering than a market place in Baghdad...

Great information Frank and Eddie. Actually Eddie, I'm comming from Norfolk to Carlisle then on to Lakehurst. Should be a pretty good trip. Terri really wants me to go. The question is, how much is she going to let me spend???

Dave, I got my gears there last year...and I'll tell you, they were scarce !!! They had a lot of open rears but not many T'Loc's.

As we get closer to the show I'll post my apparel (tshirts & hats) that I'll be wearing Saturday and Sunday to help people say..."theres that dummy".
Is there somewhere at the show all of us could all meet ??

Sounds good to me. I'm thinking maybe lunch or dinner and a photo op for the M&M members that are there. Just my $0.02 worth.

I just made my reservation at the Travelodge in Harrisburg. I will be at the show Friday (mid-day), all day Saturday, and then leave Sunday, mid-day. E-mail me if you would like my cell # so that we can hook up.

I'm still a go. Typically, they have the give away and show ('05 Mustang!!!) cars on display in front of a big grand stand. The grand stands also have quite a few food vendors around them. It makes for a convenient location to meet up. The grand stands are typically not overly crowded, but you never know. I vote that we meet at the upper right (if you are facing the grand stand) corner just to be sure.

I'm planning on wearing a white Mustang T-shirt, and probably a Georgia Tech baseball hat (dark blue). I'm a 35 year old blond dude...6'1" 225 lb. Hard to miss!!

Gezze, Dave. You sound like I look. Except you probably have more hair on your head. I will have on a very bright green Pensacola Show shirt with "Staff" on the front pocket. 6', 225ish, glasses. 11 a.m. at the right hand corner of the grand stands on Saturday.
