I've submitted my Pre-Registration for the Lincoln, NE, show. Hope to see a few of you all there. This is going to be my one long trip this year. Won't be at Edmonton, AB, IMM unfortunately.

Yep, I'll be having my 4 legged friend with me. I'm staying with Pete & Nancy at a different lodging then the Host hotel. They take pets where I'm staying. I think this is a different traveling companion than I had at the show in Concord. His name is Roscoe. He's not as enthused about traveling as my other four legged companions were. He usually a little anxious when I start out but then mostly sleeps once I get going. I've had him for about four or five years now.

Bill,
If you swing through Spokane we can convoy, as long as you won't be embarrassed by my lowly coupe.

You can tell folks I'm your acquaintance from the other side of the tracks.

Marty,

Tanner was my companion two dogs ago, he passed away May 2012 due to congenital heart disease; then I acquired Finley who had a few medical problems from a Shih Tzu rescue and had him for about 2 1/2 years until he passed due to a seizure. I've had Roscoe now for almost three years also from a rescue facility, he's also mostly Shih Tzu. His only problem is he loves to bark as squirrels, which there are quite a few at my place. (you can the companion I've had at my web site: www.wmdnorman.com )

Mosesatm,

I don't know when we'll be passing through Spokane, but your more then welcome to join us. Pete has a Red 93 Convertible GT which has all kinds of shinny stuff under the hood.

We plan on arriving in Lincoln on Thursday and maybe staying the night in the Spokane/Coeur d'Alene the first night of travel. I'll check with them and let you know via PM of our plans.

Bill

Shane, all,
I've signed up for FFF. Bringing the '68 CS. See you there. I'd love to have done a road trip to Nebraska with Marty and co., but July is booked solid for me with other activities.

I had a nice visit with Donna to day. I am so excited to meet some of you in person.
I was thinking how cool will it be to see a line of GTCS/ HCS east bound on I80. It will a car show at each rest stop and gas station. It might hurt you travel time talking with everyone on the way but it sure would be fun. If I did not have a MCA show to run I would be tempted to meet you a few hundred miles west so I could run with you.

Was thinking of stopping by in NE for 13-14th and then leaving to get home for British Columbia holiday. Is it only $25 to register for DISPLAY only?
Stephen
@Marty: Is there a display both Friday and Saturday?? Could I cut out late afternoon on the 14th? What's the etiquette on that? I have 26 hours of driving to get to BC so if I could cut off a bunch of that Saturday it would help.

For those of you who are leaving from the California areas, which route and travel times will you be taking. Maybe the group of us from the West Coast could meet somewhere on I-80 and cruise in as a group. Will sort of depend on travel times, but it would be cool. Still plenty of time to work it out. I won't be on I-80 until either the Salt Lake City area or Cheyenne depending on our route.
