I'd like to go, since this is the first year I can do the entire weekend. However, my wife wants to go on vacation the week before, so we wouldn't get home until that weekend. But, my daughter has something she wants to do that weekend, which may postpone the vacation. So, it's all still up in the air.

I've been showing a Merkur [aka German Mercury], since 2004. Because, the Merkur won't make it this year, I was considering meeting / parking with this club. Is anyone else signed up for Carlisle 2017.

Something to consider - if you park with the 'wrong' group, you may be asked to move your vehicle to the correct group.

Last year I parked with the Taurus group in the TCCA section. I was made to move to a generic stock sedan group.(I think that's what i was. Hard to remember a year ago, when I can't remember what I had for dinner last night !!) I had to go down to the stadium and re-register. This year it looks like there is just Taurus Modified and Taurus Stock.

What greater freedom than not knowing where you're going or why ?

I drive way too fast to worry about cholesterol.

If you know where you're going, it's travel. If you don't, it's an adventure.

All I need is coffee and mascara.

I'm definitely out. Came down with a detached retina this week. So, emergency surgery and the associated recovery time have eliminated any prep time. Plus, still not up to driving a lot with only one fully working eye.

So, have a great time everyone. Watch out for the local constabulary and the cameras at the intersections in the Carlisle area. We were down there last weekend for a graduation. The Import and Performance Nationals were going on. I've never seen so many cars pulled over. Lots of cool cars. But, I didn't have time to check out the show.

Been prepping for Carlisle last few days. Took the car for an alignment Friday, as well as a wheel balance. Thought that'd be important to perform, given the audio addition.

Certainly didn't care to drive 10hrs each way, and not feel comfortable, or reassured rather, all is good.

Also detailed the interior Saturday, as well as the engine bay.

Today I washed the exterior, tore the wheels off and did the undercarriage, suspension, brakes, etc.

I also waxed the wheels and reinstalled everything.

Tomorrow I'll clay it, and wax it.

Been doing lil bit of work each day, while still accomplishing aspects of the "honey do" list.

I'll toss this out there once again.....

Anyone desiring to caravan to Carlisle, I plan on leaving sometime between 4am & 5am (Thursday morning). According to Google Maps, it's a 10hr drive or so (not accounting for any potty breaks/pit stops, etc. I'd like to arrive Thursday afternoon sometime.

I will be getting on I-80 from I-355.

Anyone coming West of Chicago, and heading East, LMK.

Likewise, anyone East of Chicago, heading East, LMK as well. Perhaps we can coordinate.

Cell phone available via PM for those interested.

See you all this weekend. I know I have been quiet this year about Carlisle, as it has been a super busy year for me, but I would not miss it! Will be in the Fusion. Staying Thursday to Sunday.

Sorry to hear about your eye. Hope it heals back to normal.
I havn't been more than 30 miles from home in 2 years so I ain't goin anywhere except for a Summer trip. In August going our about 650 miles for family reunion. Did that 2 years ago and we skipped last year. My walking is mostly limited to walking the wife's dog to the end of the street and back. Bad knees.
