Re: Spring Carlisle Swap Meet. Anyone have plans?

It was another great swap meet. Hung with 72c20customcamper as well as some chat time with quite a few. There were more people there on Friday and Satrday than Wednesday and Thursday. Thursday had a few brief very light showers that didn't phase a thing. Never covered my stuff. Friday was off and on showers but not early and although the showers were heavier there were only a few. I covered and uncovered my stuff three times for a while. But that almost tornado that came though was something! It was called for around 3pm. I was way across the grounds talking to the seat guy (Pete) and he said "I don't think you're going to make it". I trucked across, even looked at a few spots, just as I was finishing tying the tarp down it hit, and I dove into the side door of my Suburban. That passed and I went back to buy something I stopped to look at. The rain really had no effect on the overall event. You just look for an ez-up or tent to duck under, then carry on. It did get windy Friday evening and into Saturday morning, then just some gusts. It turned out to be a nice day.
Got back last night and it looks like a day of showers here today. Time to go unload.

Re: Spring Carlisle Swap Meet. Anyone have plans?

I ended up being there on Wednesday only. Arrived at about 9:00, wandered around but most spaces were empty.

Anyone who posted a space in this thread was not there yet or I was lost and did not see you.

Next trip should be the Chevy only meet. Had a great place to sleep but not sure if it will be available during Chevy only.

Being our first trip, it took quite a bit of time to orientate ourselves.

Bill

Re: Spring Carlisle Swap Meet. Anyone have plans?

i made it out for a few hours on Friday, grabbed a fender I needed and a big smokie... saw a few trucks and headed home as the last rain hit around 4pm... I live 45 min away so it's nice to sneak away from work every now and then

Re: Spring Carlisle Swap Meet. Anyone have plans?

Bill, sorry I missed you. I got to my spot mid-day Wed. The Chevy show should be better for securing a room, so you should have good luck getting the same place.
