Default Mount Pleasant, Iowa?

A friend of mine called today and was asking ??? about the show coming up. He was thinking of heading out that way Friday morning after getting off work. (5-6 hour drive) He wants to know if everybody pretty much stays at the show fri. and sat. or starts pulling out on fri as it seemed that happens at Portland show (50% of the engines pulled out fri. afternoon/evening). If that is the case he wont go. Need to know so not to disapoint the guy!!!!
Thanks
Brian

No worries things don't get heavy until Friday. Sunday afternoon and Monday is normally when the engines head out. Swing by and say hi i will have the oil city half-breed oilfield engine.

That is a fantastic show and everyone seems to stick around until the last dog is hung.

I called an RV park near there and no sites were available. They said that they take reservations a year in advance. Maybe next time.

Well some of us only live 15 to 20 mins, from the grounds and have large RV friendly yards. So maybe next time you could park where you dont need a reservation.

Harry, if you can find another 20 hp Stickney, they will find a spot for your camper. Only problem there is already one at the show,and it going to be hard to find another one by Thursday.

Most exhibitors don't load up till late Sunday evening or early Monday morning. I load up Monday morning myself.

Thanks for the replies. I let Mark know and he is planning on making the trip out there. I could go with him but family time and a air show will be where I will be.
