I was thinking of Jon, but he runs a route well north of what Tom would be driving. ( i * think* says the Yankee).
Tom, the year after they stole a trailer w/car from the motel parking lot, I actually packed a bit more firepower than my usual sidearm. M4 carbine, night sights and a few hundred rounds, including SS109 AP. I was looking to party! ( and still suspected the heist was an "inside job" btw)
MD or not, I never leave home w/o it. And I don't mean my VISA card. Trouble with that scenario is that if you do have to protect yourself in a non US state like MD, you might have to dispose of the body. But, Uncle Sam taught us well, so...
Then there was one UNMENTIONABLE member who just HAD to show me his sidearm on the show field in MD. Funny stuff! Us patriots knowingly breaking laws, eh? Rebels rule!
Funny thing about the Chevelle clan, there's always a bunch of us who have each others backs.
MOST IMPORTANTLY, it would be great if you could make it up to Maryland Tom. I hated missing the show this year. My engine was out and my MD travel buddy, framer, was down as well. Looking forward to next year of course, and even moreso as I could make a full 1/4 pass @ Cecil Cty Raceway with the new Mark Jones heart transplant, but TRIPLY now, as maybe I could visit with an old friend I hadn't seen in a while.
No brake issues allowed this time DZ. None . Zero.
Oh, and its been a few years Tom, you dont need to fill the whole trailer full of beer; us older folks dont drink as much as we used to!
