Mike: Not going this summer. Just to much going on, a new toy to play with, and the chance of thunder storms don't help. YES, you beat me to it . Here is the link to the Jacktown/Bangor WEB site:

http://www.jacktown.com

I bet the place will be "PACKED" and I just don't feel like staying in the "CHEVY" motel. I'll run the IHC pump jack Friday-Saturday and Sunday and run back in where it's cool from time to time. Probably will miss a few good hit & miss items I "NEED" , but that's OK.

Talking Re: Jacktown this weekend

Geez Paul! I was looking forward to seeing that new IHC pump setup! Guess ill just have to wait. Ill be bringing a bunch of new stuff if I can SQUEEEEEEZE everything on! Put this on first, then this one, yuchs this one over a bit and slide this one on, well that dont work, maybe here. A million and a half straps later and we're ready. Ah yes, a nicely packed truck and trailer makes for lots of weight and with these gas prices, a weightless wallet! I decided not to camp this year because of the threats of rain and hopefully that wont scare many people away. I always have a good time, with good friends and good food, and as I hear theres going to be plenty of it! I just cant wait! See you there!!!

From what I heard at the Swap Meet, there is going to be a lot of venders. So many that there will be no parking in the back this year. All parking will be in the field across the street. I'll be there as long as the truck doesn't decide to $h-t the bed.

I'm planning on being there Saturday. Look for the orange table with the model engines. I will hopefully be set up across from the Model Shed. Stop and say Hi.

Saturday or early Sunday are the best days in my opinion. People usually start pulling out about early afternoon Sunday. Some, not too many, even leave Saturday night.

Bob: Had a lot of chances to buy a "PONTIAC" flywheel engine, but never did. Maybe I'll buy the next one I find and put it in the trunk which is sure big enough, or on a small trailer and take it to some car shows and infect some unexpecting folks with engine "RUSTITUS" . Hmmm.. I could put a couple of models in the trunk and have my own minature engine show at a car show and satisfy both addictions at the same time
