    I will be there with my '35.....many people were assuming I was going to set up at the show......but I can no longer afford to set up at the Good Guys shows as a vendor so i will just go to the show and hang out.

    I will be there Friday and Saturday - Sunday is the 4th and I have a family function to attend.

    I am hoping to see some people I have not seen since last years Good Guys!

    Will there be a HAMB meet and greet on Sat?

    and Master of None - what are the other shows in the area?

    Brock . . . no problem. We're leaving MN early Friday morning and will be there for the duration.

    So what's the deal with camping anyway? Do we need reservations? We'll have a few people with us as well . . .

    adam i don't believe you will need reservations ! i believe it's first come first serve ! and theres plenty of room so i wouldn't worry about not getting a spot ! they will take care of you when you arive at the campgrounds , just let them know how many days your camping and they will take your money and give you a slip to put on your camper !

    Was planning of coming from Omaha ...

    That was until this past week reared up and kicked me in the asterisk.

    Found out that I am kind of outa work (5 days now!) my wife needs surgery on her hand that if she doesn't get there is a 75% chance it will be crippled in the next couple of years. The only time that could be scheduled is July 2nd. Then we found out the insurance will not cover it because it is considered "elective" and Oh by the way we are raising you premium almost 80% (Thank You Mr. Obama)

    But in perspective, it could be worse ... you guys at least think of me while you're there...

    Have fun, ScottV

    good luck on all that ScottV

    gotta do what you can to preserve the good health while ya can.

    Believe me - we would not have our kid here if not for the miracle of science and surgery.

    The problem now is that since we were considered experimental........will our kid be covered under future heart surgeries?

    Who knows........????

    Cross that bridge when we get there - all I know is that we received a letter from the insurance company stating no more experimental stuff will be covered by insurance. (Thank you insurance companies)

    If you get a chance to come over be sure to stop at the Meet and Greet at 130 pm on Sat.

    I am guessing this is still on?

    so far the weather looks amazing!

    Hey Guys,

    Ol' Cob will be there Fri- Sat- Sunday....

    Normally the meet and greet is on the porch of the building right where the Pepsi Clock post sign is right at the corner of the main drag and the triangle intersection.
    1:30pm Saturday - ok - see you there.

    Sorry I couldn't do a cookout this year like I did last year - work just won't let me prep in time and let alone trying to sort out the wagon.

    Anyway - if you see the wagon stop by and shoot the shit.

    Travel Safe,

    Cob

    I'll be there on Saturday and I'll try to find you guys around 1:30. Anyone from Cedar Rapids going on Saturday that has room for a rider? The guy I was planning on riding down with can't go.
     
  30. Downtown would be a fine choice. There's a variety of good places to eat and drink down there. Parking isn't too bad (there's some street parking, a public lot, and some ramps), but I'd limit the number of old cars you drive if you don't take a cab.
