Bill, we are at Three Lakes in Hudson. Tiny narrow twisty badly angled campground roads with lots of cars parked encroaching on the road space we need to turn. We had a heckuva time parking and I don't expect a glitch free exit either :-)

We will meet you at the fairgrounds whenever we all get there. We will plan on just getting parked whenever they send us in, unless there's a good place to wait near the unhooking area.

Reminder of SS's colors:

The MLK entrance has a gate near the turn in - google earth....so we might not be able to line up there. can't see there being stores open before 8 am to cause traffic.

CC you have a ways to go in the morning!!
Bill,
I think looking at it & how we need to be on westbound MLK I'd say Walmart is our best bet (Travel center is further away) I really would be surprised if the parking lot would be that crowded at 7:30-8am. I'm up for still meeting there at the Walmart & heading over then to fairgrounds. Keep me posted.

Where you staying Monday night?

OK I just reserved a Monday night spot at Lazydays. DH wanted to see that place anyway. Will make our Tuesday morning much less aggravating :-)

They have available spots for Monday night, in case anyone else is looking. They are full from Tuesday on, they said.

Just tried Lazy days and it is sold out for Monday night

So we will probably sleep at Walmart. CC - you are right on the road that goes next to Walmart.....how about we meet up at Walmart to go down MLK to the entrance. Don't know how much hangout space will be at the entrance of the fairgrounds.
Brian do you want to meet at walmart by 7:30?

DW Leanne looks will be coming since there is not going t0 be surgery for our son!!

Bill,
Sounds good. I'll plan on getting to Walmart at 7:30. I'll be leaving from my house (which is 15 min from Independence RV). Bright and early morning, but I'm looking forward to it!

I'll ask Paul how he wants to handle the morning drive. Our gps actually wanted to pop us on a couple of highways instead of the side streets.

There is room for 6-8 busses (depending on size and toads) to line up in the "bus lane" and entrance drive at the MLK gate.

I'll email you our numbers again and look for yours. It may be that we can time it such that we can block traffic for you two to pull out on MLK in front of us at that intersection. Instead of us pulling in to Wally World :-)

Will let you know. Glad Leanne is coming!

3 newest Newmars at show other than North Trails display!

Great time so far, nice meeting many new people (some from this site) so far, and picking up ideas or simple changes others have done on their coaches!

Well, don't the three of you look great!!

We got as far as the front gate yesterday but didn't make it in. Just before the exit to the fairgrounds on I-4 we hit a big chunk of metal in the Highway. It punched a huge hole in the oil pan on the brand new Buick LaCrosse (Car only had 89 miles on the odo!) that we had rented and white smoke started pouring out of the engine. John got us off the interstate and around the corner to the fairgrounds entrance - right by the fluorescent green cement barriers in CC's pic - and there we sat, and sat, and sat. It took 4 hours to file all the reports, wait for the tow truck, get back to the airport and get a new car. They gave us a another new LaCrosse, only 88 miles at this one, so we are going to try again today. Pray for us!
