Thanks Dave B and Dave G for everything you did to make this Wagonfest great! Arrived home around 3:30, we had so much fun. It's great to see that people came from all over and met many new people!

Thanks Dave, Dave and Jarrod for the work on the event and the shirts. Had a great time, but I was not as mobile as I would have liked. I wish I could have spent some more time with more of you. See you next year!!

Doubt there will be an October WF in Hershey this year. Hip surgery is September 28th.

Wondering if Dave Gadoury made the two mile journey home  from  the Wagonfest  site safely. He hasn't posted up yet!

Here we go. Left early this morning with a rod knock made it about 95 miles to marathon ny I80 exit 9 when the mtr let loose. sprayed oil all over my other car my wife was driving behind me. That was about 11;00. the tow truck got to me around 12;30. on the way to my dads house I was on ne pa turn pike with all of us in the hhr and a truck in front of us drove over a big chunk of tire threw it up and I drove over it took out air dam fog light and the rear bumper where it meets the quarter panel popped out. got to my dads at 3;53. tow truck dropped off the wagon unloaded most of the luggage and lifted the new mtr out of the hhr and put the luggage in and got all 5 of us in it and headed home. got home at 501 unloaded everything got shower and went to dinner. jen said no way she was cooking after that day. I forgot to say while we were waiting for tow truck i had to pee so went up to tree line then tripped and started to roll down a steep hill. luckily i stopped before drop off . Kids thought that was crazy funny. The end result is that we are all home safe and sound and tired. wanted to say thx to everyone for there safe wishes when we left

Got home about an hour ago...traffic was not as light as the journey up.  But glad to be home! Clocked almost 1,800 miles since Thurs and no issues.  So fortunate to have been at the Fest! Dave #1 and #2 are the men :-)

Glad you made it home John and I did notice you were absent at dinner!

Sorry to hear about your troubles John. I made it home last night around 9:15. And currently now in Old Orchard Park, Maine to finish out my vacation. Had one minor hiccup on my way here, but after removing and retightening the battery cables she was back up and running. Had a great time all in all. So glad to see Brokecello should up to show off his sweet ride.

On a side note: if anyone wanted a t-shirt but didn't get in on the original purchase,.. the guy at the shirt place said it won't be an issue to make more. $15 plus $5 to ship in the lower 48 sates

I made the 20 mile trip home safe and sound too. Thanks Dave (lakeffect), and Dave G. (dmg4) for setting things up for us all on Saturday. Thanks to Tony D. (Matts dad) for picking up my slack at the Watkins Glen trip Friday.

Sorry about you're troubles John, but I'm glad you made it home with the family okay.

It was nice seeing you all Saturday, see y'all next year maybe... Hopefully.

I left before the awards to pick up my better half and the Waverunners. Met the Crew in Naples for Din Din, great prime rib BTW!! We exited southward from Naples following a certain DGGM carbon fiberized wagon out of the Finger Lakes area. I broke off and followed RT 15 south and spent the night in Williamsport, PA. Spent the mid day on the river with the Yamahas. Picked up the dog just after 4 and grabbed a pizza on the road getting home around 6 pm. Unloaded the wagon and passed out.

I am having a few miss-fire issues from time to time. At low RPM (1800-2k), at highway speed, a hill, 6th gear, under load (2000 lbs of trailer in tow), trying to accelerate, AC on it misses just a little. I also noticed pulling the skis out of the water it misses on the ramp. Again low RPM (600-900) under load.

I'll be in the driveway fixing a cv shaft on the car the wife drove. And only time I will see the beach, will be in the evenings. Not a sun worshiper.

Glad you made it home safe John.
Got back to CT around 8 last night after leaving late from Syracuse. By some miracle there was no traffic.

Chillin' on the couch. Slow drive home, only 1 wrong turn, into Fort Drum military base! After quick identification check, sent merrily on the right route! My wife and I had a blast this weekend! Thanks a lot to Dave 'n Dave, and Jarrod. And thanks to Tony for leading the Drive day, hope you see my smiling face in your mirror next year! Thanks to everyone who showed up for WagonFest, it's always great to meet like-minded people.
As always
Peace

Well, John, you lost a motor and I lost a radiator at the top of Buttermilk NY State Park. Took a few days of camping time away but, I got a new one installed.
I now have some extra tools. The fittings were all rusted in and one tranny line broke off. I'm home now Sun 5:00pm. Time for all new lines!affraid

Yep... made the long drive home to the top of the hill in about 3 minutes. Arrived safe and sound and am now freezing my butt off for a week in the Tampa Convention Center. They must need to keep the AC cranked down here to preserve all the geezers.

Had a great time with the mob. Is there any way we can rent Watkins Glen for a slightly more spirited run next time?

BTW: Professor Irwin Corey lives, and was 102 on Friday (July 29th)!

Yeah, we could, but track rental is stupid expensive. $30,000 for a day last I heard. Still no passing though. Real racing rental of the track starts at $250,000 - $300,000. Maybe we could coordinate with the Corvette Club, they rent it out for a weekend?
