Once upon a time I actually thought this might get old, yet surprisingly it never does :D This is year #5 for the annual All Ford Nationals! (Rookieshooter actually beat me to posting it first this year, haha)

Everyone's been through the drill so I hope you know the routine by now... You've got 6 months to modify your Explorer/Navajo/Ranger/BII/Ford-in-general to compete in the fun field at the biggest Ford event in the MidAtlantic and New England ;) Which means I also need a head count on who's planning on being there so I know how many hotel rooms to reserve. Newbies can read up on last year's 2005 Carlisle weekend or do a search for "Carlisle 2002, 2003" or "2004" to see all the trucks that showed up and figure out directions as well as get a feel for the general air of craziness that we submit ourselves to every summer :D

This year I'm suggesting a different type of weekend however; Since the Serious Explorations 10th anniversary run (to Crozet, VA) is only weeks after the AFN's, I don't think it's such a good idea to risk breakage by having our usual 'Show-saturday, wheel-Sunday' deal. It just screams bad idea to me. However, if y'all decide that you MUST go wheeling and you want to take the chance, here's the place to post about it so we can set up a game plan. I personally would only ride along since I really want Shelby to participate in the 10th anniversary run in one piece (more or less). Instead, I suggest we make Carlisle a two day event for saturday the 3rd and sunday the 4th. If anyone wants to get up there Friday night like we've been doing, say so and I'll account for it with an extra night at the hotel.

This is a family event (except for the partying in the hotel rooms at night ;))- although it sometimes rains we always have a blast and end up laughing about it for months. If you've never been before, you should definitely try!

Ohhhh, no- I gypped Blackjack out of the very show that I built his @$$ up for last year, I won't do it to him again :eek: Besides, I'm still after that elusive 3rd place spot and I doubt the great red and silver dent-bucket would get it :D
