Here are some show and camping results.

The pre-show gathering in Salem was windy Thursday, windy and wet Friday, and improved on Sat. We had 5 campers on Thursday, 18 on Friday and 29 on Saturday. The payoff for the rough weather came quickly though, Sunday was a fabulous weather day.

We 214 registered show cars on Sunday, a record turn-out by at least 20 vehicles! I apologize if you got blocked in during the show. I did my best to keep some aisles, but the VWs just kept coming and coming all day long.

Thanks for such a great show, I've been many years and I'm amazed how well you always handle everything. The bike to direct traffic is such a great idea...

Great time. Camping Saturday was awesome. HoboBus was literally a stone's throw from the ocean, and the ocean was lively against the rocks and sounded great to sleep to.

Nice sunrise too.

Thanks Stan for all you do to put this on. I had never been to the museum either, and that was very cool also.

Thanks,
Hobo.

Amazing turn-out today and amazing weather too.

Weather could have been better on Friday for camping, but the good company made it all enjoyable in the end.
