I believe it's only $5 to get in and walk around. To get your truck inside the gate you have to be a registered vendor, show competetor, or you can buy a day pass for your truck to do the obstacle course ($25 + $5 for passenger).

The show trucks are parked according to the class they qualify for ie:class#7 wagoneer/j-series trucks and then broken down (no pun intended) into 3 sub groups, "stock", "modified", and "unlimited". In years past the fullsize jeeps usually end up parked along the 30-40 yard line if you can imagine the show field as a football field grid. As far as parking outside the gate it's first come first serve. I should have my tent set up hopefully right where I was last year.

It doesn't matter how bad your FSJ is, we need them parked inside. I didn't take mine inside the first year and if I had, I would have won a 2nd or 2rd place trophy for stock (I got a 2nd the next year) there were that few FSJ's. It was better last year but we still need more. My J10 sold so I'll have my waggy there (I'll probably be working on it right up to the morning of the show, if not at it).

I would love to go but I will be out of town , Trying to talk the wife into taking it and showing it. My daughters been hitting it with the rubbing compound trying to get the paint smoothed a little and I have most of the interior rubber fixed. Still needs work, but I think it would do pretty good.

Trying to make this this year, jeepless though. Usually it's a toss up between here and the Bloomsburg show. Usually Bloomsburg wins out, because of the kids wanting to see the monster trucks.

Think I'd better get something nailed down to crash in. York will prob be busy with all the Jeepers.
Maybe somethin with nice big swimmin pool since no night life?

Class 7, yes for all the FSJ's, they judge the Wags and the JTrucks in the same category

Yes, you can leave Saturday and return Sunday

Since I'm less than an hour away I've never stuck around Sat night, and we'll I've had enough of the York bar scene during my mis-spent young adulthood (Though I used to love the G-man {Gingerbread Man bar and restaurant} but that might just be because a "frat" brother of mine ran it and well......)

I'll be up early Saturday (or you'll see a tan '87 Grand on the side of I83) though I've done nothing but change some fluids since the engine rebuild last year. This trip should finish breaking it in (or break it)!

JR are you bringing that Jeep trailer again?

Yes and I hope to be pulling it with my Honcho. All I have to do is adapt an Astro class III hitch to my frame "and we'll be in the clear".
I hope to sell it this year but I have to sell the 2 dana 60's I'll have in it first. I'll be up Friday night and leaving Sunday.

Hotel

Hampton was full already

Wingate looks like its right down the street.

http://travel.travelocity.com/checkout/CheckoutSwitchModule.do;jsessionid=07673BD91C15ED2 03E60EA53648AD7B9.p0704?propertyId=70986&quoteKey= &SEQ=1215101307409632008&page=/HotelDetailReview.do&prefix=/hotel

So I got a room there. Guess I'm all set.

Buddy of mine, Jim that helped alot on Scrambler, took job as Welding supervisor project manager, in Maryland few years ago may stop by show Sat morning.
He's hiring.

Says the drag racing is way more competitive up there than in East TX.

I went to this last year in my 06 rubicon and had a blast, did their course which was actually pretty good (ran 3.5" lift and 33's)

My "club" will be there, stop by their tent and get some awesome jeep schwag

Novajeepers by name....hopefully I'll make it up, all depends on a motorcycle ride to the tail of the dragon hmmmm choices choices

I was wondering when this event was approaching. I'm going to see if the family is into it this year. (went 2 yrs ago and had a good time).

The rock crawling course was much fun to watch. I don't remember much of anything seen in the swap meet area, especially for FSJ.

Anybody going have a right side rocker panel they want to sell? Only thing different with my wag is it has less paint and more rust than the last show.

I am officially stuck on what to do. I want to take my Honcho to the show but I need to pull a small trailer with it. I am in the process of installing (ie:cutting, grinding, welding) a class III hitch to it (TOTAL PITA!!!!!). The trailer is going to be loaded with two dana 60 front axles and a cherrypicker. In my truck would be more parts plus camping gear for the weekend. If I sell the trailer (hopefully) then I MUST sell the axles as I don't have the payload to haul them home in my Jeep. Now, I have an F150 I used last year that will solve everything and more but then I have no way of getting my Honcho to the show. I really want the Jeep there since this year seems to be the year of the FSJ at the Pa. Jeeps show. Figures.

JR,
If you sell the trailer and not the axles, I'll take them to my shop in PA for you. Also, if the cherry picker is only for unloading the axles, you could leave that at home and a bunch of us could muscle them and/or there are other motorized methods of getting them on and off the truck. My trailer with the cherry picker mounted on it will be there.
What do you mean by "since this year seems to be the year of the FSJ at the Pa. Jeeps show. Figures. "?
