Thanks George! I'll have to pass, though -- A few of us are already signed up for traffic control detail, working for Scotty Shifflet. This will be about the 5th time (?) we've worked this detail as a small core group -- and it looks like he has a special camping area set up so we can all be together, which should be good. Traffic detail can be brutal, and when we get off at the end of the day, we usually have just enough left to get to a folding chair that isn't too far away ... Billy, Mike B, Mike R and some others will recall such great duty stations as "Hell's Gate" (Baltimore), "Chaos Corner" (Huntsville) and who will ever forget "Malfunction Junction" at York??? I'm pretty sure both Billy and I suffered PTSD from that one. eeeek As I recall, South Bend was pretty benign ... until Scott Ward showed up at the transporter gate ... smile

I think York takes the cake for the worst traffic issues out of them all...it was none stop all week! We parked close to 1250 show trucks...don't be surprised to see numbers like that next year big_eek

malfunction junction...MALFUNCTION JUNCTION!?!?!?😖😳 The memories (nightmares) just came flooding back to me.....where is my medication....
Those were some long days for sure. Someone told me there was a truck show going on too, huh?
Worth it though in the end and can't wait to don the ol reflective vest and orange hat for Mr. Shifflett again next year.
I think Mike is right, with this years show going virtual, we could set all kinds of records in 2121!

There are plenty of camping spots at the Rockingham county fairgrounds. All the people that show livestock at the fair camp there all week. I’ve loaned my camper to several friends who have parked there. It’s a huge area and will be a great venue for the show.

1200 show trucks, 400 transporters, 500 golf carts and public parking will fill that place up fast!

Mack trucks hardly got a mention I thought there would be a few of them we have a lot of them out here in Australia

I think it will be a great show! I can't wait.
TIm, if you want to see some awesome Macks then you would have to go to the ATCA show in Macungie Pennsylvania. Beautiful show grounds with some amazing trucks but it is Mack country so there are lots of them there. I once thought about restoring one and even bought an old fixer-upper B model but then decided it would take too much money to restore even come close to some of the beauties there.
I did have fun learning how to shift a twin stick in the brief time I owned it.

A 6-71 on an Allison .... THAT had to be a peculiar sound ...
