Sorry your trailer won’t take you along. We’re at Carlisle first, Thursday and Friday. There is a real eclectic mix of truck parts here. I bought parts for ‘36, ‘37, and ‘38 Chevy trucks today. Lots of Advance Design stuff here, but you know I ignore that modern stuff. The vendor count seems down and the crowd is smaller that I recall from last year, but the weather more than made up for all that. Tomorrow we deliver 3 parts orders that originated by Facebook Marketplace. 2 guys from Southern MD and a gal from Long Island. Social media and Stovebolt’s, a strange combination.

Good luck with your sales!
What that trailer has going for it is raw, unadulterated charisma. Charm if you will...

Carl ... ya got that right! So get this, The trailer got all butt hurt that it didn't get to go to Winchester this year and started getting my van all butt hurt 'cause I left it home, too. So now, the two of them have decided to run off to Carlisle/Hershey/WhatEVUR is going on now WITHOUT ME!!! Can you believe that?

Apparently, they both hate Charlie now, too, so they have decided to help my neighbor joe find a cab and bed for his '69.

I just hope Freyja doesn't decide to jump ship, too ....

Greenie, I'll be back in my spaces in the Green field GDD-12 thru 14 (right at the end of the sidewalk for the pedestrian overpass) from Tuesday thru Saturday...we camp on our spaces! Looking forward to being back...this will be my 45th year of going and 44th year vending (I think)...only missed last year since I started going there in 1974.

That’s impressive. We are in our favorite green field spaces, GAI 18-19, that’s in the shade of light post 118, smack up against the car corral and close to Hyman Village.

I think my first year was 1978; and the only year I missed was 1990; when I foolishly agreed to get married on Hershey Saturday. It must have been love! I know that, because she helps me get set up on Tuesday, spends all day Wednesday with me- and then bails for Thurmont, MD and Colorfest.

I did NOT miss Hershey 2020. I drive there, sat down in my spaces, and took a selfie! Then I stopped in at the AACA Museum and had lunch in the Sweetest Place on Earth.

I am loaded and ready to depart on Tuesday!

I just could not swing Hershey this year with work, and missed the previous two years. Really bummed out. Today would have been the day. Friday is condition day for the race cars and high wheels. My favorite day.
