Now that Litchfield and Deutsche Classic are over, I am counting days and saving pennies for Terryville.

Connecticut shows are just so much fun!!

If anybody sees me wandering around at 11:45, feel free to whack me on the head and remind me of the group photo at noon.
I've missed quite a few at both Litchfield and Terryville because I'm too engrossed in the parts/vehicles/people to remember.

I will be looking for a 1500cc or 1600cc single port for the Mango. Mine is non rebuildable so if you have one and want to unload it -let me know!

edit: i think i may have found one! Thanks!

as always we will be hosting hang out time during the day along with drinks and good company. We are toying with the idea of bringing the smoker to make ribs and chicken. If anyone else wants in let us know so we can plan a BBQ dinner of sorts with awesome smoked food! We have a 2 tier smoker capable of holding pounds of meat. ribs and chicken are a must so lets see what people want.

And it depends on weather, but a good turnout for camping is normal.
20-40 camper vehicles? Something like that.
