I seriously doubt we'll be able to leave in the AM. Give me a call if you end up leaving around noon. Regardless, we'll see you there.

Good call - Friday is the best day to do the flea market. It's the reason I leave Thursday so that I'm there first thing Friday morning. But I think you're closer, so with a little early-riser discipline Friday morning you should be fine.

Look forward to meeting you.

I just hope the flea market has something worth while....I did manage to find a set of snap ring pliers that I had been looking for, and I got them at a decent price...But it would be cool to find something I need.

Hah. Most of the reason to explore Spring/Fall Carlisle Fleas is to find and buy shite you weren't looking for but couldn't pass up buying.

I doubt I'll find a 24v Cosworth 2.9L engine from the UK complete with ECM and harness...
I usually go to the Import show and that flea market always seems to have something. Don't think I will find anything interesting at the Ford flea market.

In any case - I do like stocking up on consumables or stumble upon an unusual tool when I am at Carlisle.

Things like: inline fuel filters that I use on the Sprite or for the lawn mower. Favorite style Dremel bits that I tend to go through.
Stuff like that...

Each time I scroll through post headings here I can't stop visualizing Gen. Douglas MacArthur's historic WWII statement "I shall return". 🤓
