The Car is Packed and Carlisle awaits ! I am planning to attend Corvettes at Carlisle this August 27-30, 2015. I plan to be on the road for about 14 days. ( August 14th to Sept 1) [/B .

Even though I have owned my car for 45 years, I have never been to Carlisle. I hope to have a mini reunion with many of my hosts from the 48 State Tour. Let me know if you are going !

]If you have owned your corvette for 30 or more years, I would like to stop by and add you to my research on long time Corvette Owners.

The map shows the general route (not roads yet) I am taking, PM me with your town and I will put it on the map. Once the map has enough dots on it.

I will plan the actual route. More information to come as I add details and dates of travel. I used this method to travel to all 48 states, and Europe to document these cars and owners. I will be posting to 9 US and European Corvette Forums as well as Facebook. Here are is a link to my web page with details . of my trips to Europe and NCRS National Convention.

www.corvettevagabond.com

Map link- Just click on it. PM with your town and I will put your town on the map . The route shown is just a general direction. Actual roads traveled later. ( I will not post your address , just town)

Travel update

Hi to all,

As I prepare for the trip to Carlisle, my first stop will be in the Lexington MA area on Thursday August 20 in the AM. I will be looking at a 58 and 67 that have been owned for 40 + years.

If you live in the area and want to have me document your car as one my 30+ year owners, please PM or email me [email protected] . If we can find a local park to meet......

Thursday PM, I continue on to Ed Johnson's shop in Bridgewater , MA to do last minute prep on the car. Yes , I get to change the oil and filter with the car on a lift....nice not to get oil in your face.

Ed donated the rear end that Gary Ramadei rebuilt for me.

I leave MA and head to Columbus, Ohio on Friday August 21 with a stop in western NY or PA. PM me if you live on the way and want to try and meet.

Party Time !

Hi to all, a good friend is having a little party for me after Corvettes at Carlisle. Here is his post, (need to drive your car) the contact info is in the post.

For those of you that have tuned into the Forum for the past few years, I'm sure you've followed the adventures of "Jackfit", the self-proclaimed "Corvette Vagabond" and his 2010 48-State trip around the USA, followed up by his 2012 trip throughout Europe! Well, Jack's packing the car once again and hittin' the road in a week or so for a mini-trip around the Northeast and Mid Atlantic (http://www.corvetteforum.com/forums/...tes-await.html) to take in Corvettes @ Carlisle and to visit family and friends along the way.

Jack's trip will take him to the Baltimore area late this month, and he's graciously accepted and invitation to stay with my wife and I on Monday night, August 31st. To celebrate Jack's return to the area, I'm planning a casual cookout (just the basic "food groups" . . . burgers, brats and brews!) for a small group (15-20 guys) of local Forum members that RSVP (first come, first served) to [email protected].

Please note the only REQUIREMENT . . . you must bring your Corvette (rain or shine). NOTE: Jack is particularly interested in meeting you if you've owned your Corvette for 30+ years (I already have 3 guys planning to attend who are over 40 years!). Not to worry guys . . . I live in a small, quiet, well lit cul-de-sac and can accommodate 6-7 cars in my driveway, and my neighbors will likely surrender their driveways for the night as well.

So . . . clear your calendars and shoot me an email quickly . . . it will be a night to remember! I guarantee it! I look forward to seeing you on the 31st!

Tom
