I plan on arriving in Carlisle on June 1 and leaving the campground on June 6. I hope to meet some new faces and see some familiar one's as well:chug:

I'll be staying at the Western Village RV Park.

Make your reservations soon before they book up for the Ford Nats.:thumbsup:

We will be there as well, also hitting up the campground unless something changes.

Should be a good time, we should probably look into the requirements for a Serious Explorations tent like they setup last year. Rumor has it, its based on the number of pre-registered rigs for AFN, more then 15 that register for the same group they will set one up.

Again, need to confirm that, as it might be nice for the crowd we may have this upcoming year.

Going to pencil this in on my calendar now. This will probably be the year I FINALLY make AFNs after being asked for about 5 years. Will probably do the 4th, overnight into the 5th and head home that day.

I'll be there as usual. Hopefully I'll be more prepared for 2016 then I was this year.

I have a reservation at the campground and was planning on driving the Pumpkin to Carlisle from there. Will I be able to do that without getting busted for equipment violations?? I don't know if PA has the same "Sense of humor" as AZ does when it comes to big tires with no mudflaps or flares.

The trailer parking selection on the entry form made me think about this...

Unfortunately Rick yes PA has some ugly laws. Here's the link:http://www.liftlaws.com/pennsylvania_lift_laws.htm

Looks like I'll have to tow it over. Bumpers and tires sticking out are out of compliance.

rick, maybe pm lindsy and she might know. ive seen some pretty tail trucks there with tires sticking out in the past, but i dont remember if they sat there overnight because they trailer them there, or if they drove them in
