Don, all you need to worry about is showing up. You can take care of everything when you get there.

My chance of being there is up to about 70%.
Wife wants me gone for a week.
I'll miss Tim as a road trip partner though.

If I do it? I would hope to be there before noon Thursday.
Leave Saturday afternoon?

John said it's more of, fend for yourself for food and whatever.
More laid back than the Homecoming and not near what the KC Reunion is like.

Then there is the route to get there. I-70 thru some big cities or I-64 to I-79 and then 48/50 to the event?
Should I pre register? Bring a Stovebolt? Or just show up and sleep in the back of whatever I drive?
Advice is really in need!

Oh, what about rain? Should I bring that also?

Don, the Ruritan's (fairground owners) will have their kitchen up and running with a simple breakfast (coffee, egg's, pancakes etc), lunch (burgers, chicken tenders fries, soda, etc.) that are pay as you go and a dinner on Friday night that you need to buy a ticket for in advance. After hours hanging around the camp fire is a BYOB and lawn chair event!

The fairgrounds has a rustic bathhouse with showers about 100 yards from the camp area with spot pots much closer.

Restaurants, Walmart, groceries, etc are only 3 miles away...truck stop with convenience store food & beer/wine is much closer.

Thanks Mike, That is the info I needed to hear. I know you are a big part of this show and I appreciate what you do to make it work.
I still need to decide if I want to haul a truck up there and back, or just load my stuff in a daily driver truck and be there?
The route is also a question. I-64 to Charleston WV. Then I-79 to Weston and 48 over to Winchester?
Or go on up the road to Bridgeport and take 50 over to Winchester?

Google maps shows the the I-70 route as the fastest, and shortest, but, I don't want to deal with the traffic, the big cities that it goes thru and around.

I also got a summons today, for jury duty, on Monday the 28th, so that is something I will need to change ASAP. I don't mind doing it, but a 2-1/2 week notice is too short to alter my life plans.

Thanks for your help and I hope to be there!
Don

Back to the Subject of the new Stovebolt anniversary decals that were produced by Don. My package of decals finally arrived via snail mail USPS. Anyone that wants some please private message me. My understanding is that they are $2 each. i would prefer to mail out at least 3 at a time but will make exceptions. Please let me know if you want some and I will mail them for that price plus your shipping cost. What ever it will be ? Don, please let me know what to do with the money collected? Send it to you or Send it to John towards helping this website operate ?
