    We plan on going up Thu. Oct. 4th for the day. Looking for just about anything, especially "ol Skool Kustom". Any other HAMB members setting up or going?
    My Carlisle Shopping Plan...Walk one lane, eat. Walk another lane, drink. Walk another lane, eat again...so on and so on, until my son has to load me into the parts cart and wheel my tired ass to the truck :D
    Always a great way to spend the day instead of working :eek:
    HAMB'ers let us know your space numbers.

    Do you have a spot where I could lay down and take a nap? Bad, Bad Knee, but with enough pain meds I can go for at least 8 hrs of walking. Just have to stay away from that west hill :eek:
    We will stop by, put a HAMB sign up. I wear my HAMB T-Shirt.

    Got to Carlisle arond 11:00am on Thursday, just after the rain stopped. Crowds were light, I thought. Pickings were slim for what I'm looking for (ealy Ford stuff), but picked up some supplies. Going back this morning (Friday) to finish up.

    Back to PA next week for Hershey to wind up the season.

    Lots of empty Vendor spots on the hill, especially on the steep slopes and in the swamp it was down to about 50% occupancy on Friday. The rest of the place was about 'normal', from what I could see.

    Just for fun, I started taking note of some of the more non-car Vendors during the last hour or so, such as Bath Fitters, Horizon Cell Phones and a Vendor selling tatoos (although she had no visible tats - smart girl). Non related items included diabetic socks, wennie roast tongs, and fish aquarium heaters. I should have kept a list from the start.

    It ain't what it used to be, turnout light, empty vendor spots and the greedy b@$^@&*$ at Carlisle were charging the vendors $5.00 for straw.

    Although Friday was a beautiful day, I thought the crowd was moderate and the vendor #'s moderate,too. Sad, but true, there are lots of non-car related vendors, the cars have really shifted away from hotrods and customs and antiques to "last 15 yrs or so" whatevers. Prices or high, or not, but the information technology today helps identify what your stuff is worth. It was $10 to park (too high) and $10 get in (okay). Lately, I have been taking lunch in with me-they changed all the old food places -at least since spring-and the man I bought hot sausage sandwiches from for years is long gone-along with the reasonable lunch cost.

    I had a great time, but it's an 160 mile round trip and this was the first time I thought that maybe I could just do it once a year. Too bad.
