In 2001, Explorer representation started at the All Ford Nats with a few goofy EF friends and three mildly modified SUVs. Seeing as to how this year is the 20th anniversary, I got the itch to celebrate one more time. The show starts on Friday June 4th and runs 'til Sunday June 6th, rain or shine. Anyone with an Explorer, Navajo, Mountaineer or Sport Trac is welcome to join myself and Morgan in class 811 (the class that took a decade of harassing the show organizers to make official), under the club name "Serious Explorations". Showfield registration is $65 but if you register before May 3, 2021 you'll get the discounted rate of $58.50:

I'm pretty sure they'll put us on the backside of Bastard Hill as usual but at this point let's be honest—nowadays we aren't showing off so much as getting together to BS. Hopefully we'll have a canopy for shade and a potluck BBQ. Most hotels In Carlisle are booked up already despite the pandemic, so we're staying at the Mechanicsburg Homewood Suites.

We used to split the weekend into half-show, half-wheeling. As of now I'm planning for show only but if there's enough interest I'm sure we can set something up for spending Sunday at Rausch Creek or AOAA. Saturday evening around 6pm we'll be getting together for a group dinner regardless. Restaurant TBA.

Hope to see a bunch of old friends and new faces this summer!

Fuddy duddy alert :(

I won't consider going unless I've got my shots in me. Sorry, but after seeing three friends in my car club die from COVID within the past couple months, I just don't want to risk it. My life may be different right now, and not as fun as it could be, but it's still a life.

I just want this crap to be done with!

BTW, Char has her first shot in her since she is high risk. I won't be getting mine until it's open to everyone, whenever that is:banghead:

Good news! Arizona opened up the vaccine to 55-65 year olds with no pre-existing conditions and I have an appointment for March 4! There is hope after all :chug:

All right y'all, if by some magic Rick makes it out here then we have GOT to take him four wheeling!
