Default Cabin Fever

I am wondering who I might bump into at Cabin Fever this year, this will be my first trip there and I have heard it is well worth the trip. Joe M.

Unfortunately I'll miss the Cabin Fever show this year. I went last year and it's well worth the price of admission. The craftsmanship that has gone into making the models is unbelievable. I was most impressed by the tiny one-cylinder 4-stroke engine and the Caddy V-8. Made me want to learn to do some lathe and mill work someday.

Joe, I am going on Saturday. Would like to go on Friday for the Aucton but my bossman says he needs me more than I need an engine. So it looks like Saturday is my day there. Never been there before but it sounds like a good time.

Been their, and done that several years in a row, and I have some models to prove it. Sure is a "BIG" show and is worth the trip. Problem is, it's the same weekend as the January 15, 2005 "SNOW SHOW" and the "HOBO" stew with "roadkill" . OH, what to do .

Hi all-
Cabin Fever has been growing the last few years and has lots of stuff to see even if you are not a model builder. There are lots of shop tools, books and ephemera, full size engines (at the Friday auction) and other "stuff" that you see at the shows. The boat pond was most impressive. If you have a mechanical type wired mind you will see some very interesting models that will get you thinking. Many of the people that you see at the shows are there so you are bound to find someone to talk with about iron collecting. I will have a booth set up there with my piston rings and other stuff and look forward to saying hi at least when you walk by. This is a good chance for you to stop by and ask about any compression problems that are bugging you. You can still see Cabin Fever Friday, go get frosted at Jacktown Saturday and hit Cabin Fever Sunday on the way home. Cabin Fever is a Harrys Page sponsor so click on their banner ad and see what it is all about. See you there.
Thank you,
Dave Reed

I am planning on being there for the three days. I take my model steam and gas engines and a do-dad or two for display. I have been going to the show since the first one and have been displaying my projects since the third. It is always a great time with great people.

I'll be there as a vendor. Don't know what all I'm taking, yet.
