      Every year I say it's my last one doing this, and every year I look at pictures from the summer before and think, "Damn it all... That was fun." :rolleyes:

      So, anyone still interested in the AFN's? For those who have never been, it's the biggest Ford car show on the East Coast. There are tons of things to do, see, and buy. For more information, visit their website at: Carlisle Ford Nationals. If you want to show your Explorer, enter it in Class 400 (Bronco/Explorer/Mountaineer) and purchase a showfield pass for $55. You can also pay at the gate on the day of the show if you want. Traditionally we register under the club name "Serious Explorations" in homage to the website that brought us all together.

      In years past, we used to attend the show as a group on Friday & Saturday, then go four wheeling on Sunday. I'm pretty far out of the loop, but if anyone is interested in that aspect, speak here or forever hold your peace. Rausch Creek seems to be the only option left for fourwheeling. Learn more about it on their site @ Rausch Creek off road park.

      Ok, now as for me personally (since I always manage to end up being the ringleader of this circus somehow), I have no dang idea if Morgan will be fixed up by then. If he is, I'll try to get him down to the show. If not, I may wow the crowd my lovely SportTrac rust. Either way, I don't have a tow vehicle or $$ to spare so wheeling is out for me :( Worst case scenario, I still hope to come down and wander around at least. I reserved a 2 bed suite at the Comfort Suites in downtown Carlisle again (the awesome place with the funny waiters and parking garage!), but I could only get it for the night of the 6-7. So I wouldn't be down until Saturday morning. If anyone wants to bunk with me and split room costs, or has any questions regarding the show, feel free to PM me!

      well with me doing a entire drive train swap on evil (including supercharger), the cost of the us dollar, and at home with yet another back issue, its not to hopeful that me or evil will get there (even though i have said that for the last 3 years). i did reserve a room already however just in case i do get there.
      and mental note : do NOT climb in the elevator with the Lincoln crowd....

      Don't know what I'll be driving but I'm going to try regardless. Maybe I'll rent a Mustang again so I'm at least in a Ford.

      Ok, I know we have made the promise of attending, but this year will start a family tradition!!
      This year will be the first in a long time that my wife will have her son for the summer months, usually time spent in Tx with his father.. Since the beginning of this school term Jayden has helped me prep Daisy, our 2001 xls for Carlisle..
      We have a vacation package that spans an entire week, so we will definitly have all weekend to meet local members, and we are also looking forward to wheeling on Sunday!!
      I hope that a few senior members will put together the offroading part, I'd rather not wheel 4 hours from home without someone who knows the trails..

      That looks like something we would get kicked out of! I've been there done that, at a couple go-cart places in Ohio...

      It's been quiet in here. I'll be there depending on how this reckless driving ticket ends up. Where's everyone staying?

      I'm not going to be able to make the run this year. Multiple reasons so I'm not going to make excuses. I am shooting for next year again though! Tim, John and I still need to have that show down at the drag strip!

      Next year will be better for sure. It's the 20th anniversary of Serious Explorations- it HAS to be!

      Sorry you can't make it, Andy :(
