Having run the XR this weekend up here in the frozen north, thoughts turn to attending my 21st Ford Nationals at Carlisle.

Who else is going? Have you made your reservations? Looking forward to seeing everyone and spending the weekend looking at great cars.

I'll be there for my 18th Ford Nationals at Carlisle.

Room and Carlisle reservations made well in advance.

You should start a thread about a VA-originated convoy. There has been one in the past. The challenge is always in getting everyone to agree on a start time.

The Northern NJ convoy will be leaving Thursday morning at 8AM. At least that's what I'm boldly suggesting for now. :)

After too many years missed, I'll be going this year. This will be my 8th time.
I've had withdrawals the years I stayed away.

The VA convoy was great in the past! meeting up in Leesburg or Winchester. However, I really doubt there are many daily drivers and/or even cars around this area anymore...

Well I am willing to convoy up with you. There are a few merkurs in my area, 3 or 4. Not sure if any of them are on the forum.

I've met up with the VA convoy in the past when it came thru MD. Let me know if it happens.

I took one away a few years back from Bob Barrett.

8AM Thursday! Sounds like that Northern NJ Convoy will be stopping at a few U Pull & Pays along the way. :D

Perhaps. :mrgreen: We've also stopped at small rural airports for lunch in the past. Might have to do a section hike of the AT one of these years.

Made reservations to be there with my old-man. Great to be back in the states. Missed you guys last year, but hope the weather will be copyright of 2014.

Any Merkurs passing close to Philly on Friday morning for convoy?

Peace,

Aundrae :wink:
