I would bring the mb pumper over to the show but I wouldn't want to sit there with it all day, for the small chance that anything goes missing I would be in big troble.

I have been attending Macungie for 10 years, and have usually drive the FWD Firetruck out on Friday afternoon, park it overnight- have the old lady pick me up and then drop me back off Saturday AM....I have never had any trouble with anything missing and have never heard of any problems at Macungie. It's a family environment, 90% are blue-collar working stiffs and we all pretty much look out for each other's stuff. Doug Maney might be able to tell you more about any problems. But I wouldnt hesitate for one minute to park a fully stocked pumper there and then walk the show grounds.

OK I got your private message about getting a rental car. If you need anything lemme know. The hotels in Fogelsville at 78 & 100 are all good with lots of food choices within walking distance.

No tiller man required unfortunately because we really have not yet started on the trailer. Matt Pfahl is planning on hauling just the tractor along with a few other pieces. I am not sure what else he is bringing but I am hoping the former P.F.D. 1962 B-85F will impress. We are on schedule to finish the restoration just in time for the show.

As long as I have been around, the only thing that was removed without permission was a couple of Mack banners from the pool fence. Most trucks still have the keys in the ignition and are filled with flea-market finds. There is always a first-time but I don't thin you would have any concerns. Hope to see you there.

I leave the 52 parked on the show grounds all week end without any problems. I have even left my camera bag out by mistake and it didn't walk. Bring the truck; you won't be sorry.

Thanks for the Friday night replies. I am planning to attend (that is if Doug accepts my reservation). Perhaps we need a BMT table.

If you are interested in attending the ATCA Family Reunion, please check out Double Clutch and give Terry a call. We really would like to have a better idea of those who are planning to attend. Last year 75 people signed up and we served 375! We don't have a problem with how many attend, we just do not want to run out of food. See you there!

Doug - sent a note to Terry and received his reply...I am on the reservation list for Friday night. He said "bring a chair and an appetite". Since Leslie is not coming until Saturday, I will be eating for two. :banana:

Doug i have a questions, since this is my first year bringin a truck after attending for years, is there a rule for moving thr truck in and out of the show? just wonderin this as this will be our only transportation back to the Hotel. i know you guys like all trucks to be parked and stay parked and we usually stay til around 6 every night anyways just wonderin if there was a rule for leaving. i know obviously we wont get to park in the same spot saturday as we do friday.

There are several guys who use their truck for daily transportation to and from the hotel. The guys who usually do this try to get to the show field early next day to get the same spot. Just sayin' what I have observed.
