I was worried about raw chicken for more than the duration of my drive, but I suppose I could just make the marinade and accessories and we could snag some chicken there, marinate Saturday, cook Saturday night with tent people.

It's like...TONS of ginger, lemongrass, and garlic paste, sesame oil, soy sauce, rice wine vinegar, hoisin, sriracha...trust me these are bomb. Homemade pickled daikon and carrots, avocado, mango, cilantro, EAT.

You certainly can if you want. Though if anyone wants to bring costco packs, that makes it cheaper and easier.

TWO MORE DAYS, MOTHERF7CKERS.

Rain isn't so bad as long as it doesn't last all day.

Also, I still have the parts sedan, so if you need easy-to-access stuff (interior, engine bay, trim) shoot me a message and I can bring some stuff with me. Full set of pretty decent black and chrome beltline trim, nice black seats, nice black door cards.

Hopefully not as cold as last year I made that mistake.

It rains every year. Thats to be expected.


I'm out - ended up with the kid this weekend. She's not quite old enough to make the 7hr drive and remain sane.

^ you're right about that. I've been attending that show for more years than I care to remember and only once did it NOT rain the entire weekend. The bum part is that it usually clears up by Sunday. Pa. telling you don't let the door hit you on the way out.

I'm on year 9 and there were a few where it didn't rain. At least not all weekend. We ALLLLMOST always got some rain, but there were probably at least 3 where it just kinda blew over and then got sunny and hot as hell at least one day.

I remember the year a tornado blew through and took down the rear building, I think it was "C". Was also there one year when they announced a tornado nearing the grounds. Nobody wanted to leave. You could see the storm coming. I got in my car left with my family. Many people I spoke to later on regretted not following me out. The Import show use to be later but it was either the Ford or Corvette people who had it switched around. They were tired always having rain at the "their" show. I think the import show is their lowest turn out show.

Jen figure X3 for me! They also had better grade T-shirts, different colors with nicer graphics. You're lucky if you find a plain Jane white T with the words Import Show on it.

Was that the microburst year like, 3 years ago when everyone was under that tent holding it to the ground?

By the way, to anyone from new york or new Jersey, I'll be leaving from central NJ near the beach. I can link up with anyone heading down and we can make a caravan. I planned leaving Saturday morning but will leave Friday if need be.

Way before that. There were no paved roads at the time. Not sure if you were ever there when the only thing on the mud was hay everywhere. It was miserable to walk around. Always felt bad for the vendors who had to deal with that mess.

I liked going on Sunday. Always the best deals on what's left with vendors. It is also when they give out the awards. I was there when Leah, Josh and I were about the only turbobricks members left. So we posed for the camera and accepted the award for second in the club turnout. That was 2010. Seems like it wasn't that long ago.

Leaving work at 5:30, running to my parents for Carlisle prep (beer, sleeping materials, gas) and I'll be there about 9.

We ate. We drank. We watch bad drifting. We breathed tire smoke from the burnout competition. We did electric bicycle smoky burnouts. We heard so many cars being held on the limiter that next time I’m taking paintballs and a slingshot.
