      I haven't seen a thread on this yet... is anyone from here planning on going to the SEMA show this year? I know a large group from fordtruckworld.com are going to be going and meeting up somewhere, maybe some explorer guys will feel like going as well?

      Of course I'm going:D I started a thread months ago trying to get some folks from the board to sign up.

      I'll be there Tue-Thursday night. I'll probably leave Friday morning since most of the exhibitors start breaking their stuff down on Friday.

      We are staying at Harrah's right on the main strip.

      We casino hop after the show. playing a bit here and there while sampling beverages and muchies along the way:D

      I think it is $30 or $40 now. Damnit! But I have to call the hotline to get my tickets (The magazine just e-mailed me the info today). If I come up for one night, can I sleep on someones floor? I doubt there will be hotel rooms available that week.

      I have a room booked at Excalibur. For those that have never been to Vegas, it's at the south end of the strip, right across the street from new york new york. It's where I stayed last year (mainly because its cheaper then most other hotels in the area! LOL). What I did last year for the SEMA show was I would walk over to New York New York and catch the shuttle over to the convention center. Then at the end of the day I'd catch the shuttle back! That way no messing with parking, or traffic, ro any of that...
      I may have a bed available in my room if someone would like to split the cost, assuming my girlfriend decides not to go which its looking like she probably won't do...

      Rick, not sure when I'll be arriving Wednesday but that oughtta work just fine. I know we're also planning a big dinner thing for the f-150 folks that will be out there (ford truck world is going to have a booth set up for its magazine and there will be about 15-20 members there) which everyone from here is invited to as well (hey we all have ford trucks in some form or another! :))

      Dang, I should have planned my Phoenix trip a little earlier. I could have gone and possibly hicthed a ride with Rick and Char and went to the show.

      My wife, kids and I are going to Phoenix (Goodyear) to visit her parents and to go to the NASCAR race the weekend of Nov. 8th and fly out the 16th. We could have come down the previous weekend. Oh well. If we do that race again I will plan better.

      Rick, I might have to look you up again so I can see your Explorer in person again. Last time I saw it it was green and not as large. I think it was 2 or 3 years ago. Let me know what you think of that.

      Well I just got my SEMA passes this weekend. If anyone has room, I'll be there from Tuesday morning to Wednesday night. I'd like to maybe meet up with you guys on Wednesday for dinner.

      slight change to my schedule. instead of arriving late Wednesday and leaving Saturday morning, I'll be arriving late Tuesday, and leaving Friday morning. Figured it just made sense since I'm going there alone and hanging out in Las Vegas when your alone isn't nearly as fun as with someone else! LOL. Plus Friday like Rick mentioned the booths close down fairly early, and the extra $130 the hotel was going ot cost me wasn't really worth it... so I will be at the show on Wednesday!
      Desertspive, I am waiting back to hear from someone else on whether he wants to share a room with me. But if you need a place to stay, I'm staying at the excalibur and shoudl have a spare bed on tuesday night.

      Thanks Matt. I went ahead and got a room, eventhough I'll only be staying Tuesday night. Got a good deal over the internet, though. :) We still on for a Wednesday night dinner.

      The issue of practicality came up and I needed something that could get me 30 miles each way to work a little more comfortably :). As for what shirt I'll be wearing, haven't quite decided, trying to get some shirts still from some of my sponsors (PIAA, Brembo, maybe BBK, heh heh) and also from the ford truck world magazine that I am an author for. I'll probably be wearing the f150world shirt the first day, the explorer shirt the next.

      I think I'll be all about Dockers and a Polo, I haven't been on the inside long enough to have scored any "industry polos". LOL My credentials say "Sean P. Holman - Huntington Beach, CA - Contract Journalist/Freelancer. " Maybe they couldn't make up their mind. ;) I am getting excited, this is going to be my first SEMA show! I guess I can cross that off of my list of things to do...
