    NATS 2019 - I could not get in

    Hi Gang
    I went to attend with out a van (walk in) - They would not let me in, no walk ins allowed!

    Well after hanging at the gate for about 15 minutes, a sharp looking 2nd Gen starts to pull in -- Thanks COOP for putting me on your guest list!!!

    Thumbs up Coop To The Rescue!

    I'd say that was worth the 15 minutes.

    Anytime Ken. It was great to see you again. I saw you with the Nemo van. If I wasn't behind Kate's car at the time I passed I would have stopped. Nice work Ken.

    My wife and I had a great time at the Nats. We met up with Bills67sport at his place in Mass on the way up.
    Bill, You truly do have a little slice of heaven there.
    I got to see folks I met back in 2014 like Smiley, Amie, Krispy and Roger, as well as members that I hadnít met before like Mike, Ken and Wookie. I couldnít help but reflect on how I had met both Ron B and John V for the first time at the 2014 Nats.

    We are really hoping to make the trip to Minnesota next year. Time will tell.

    Yes, we did. Someone was there to help, and he had smoke coming from the van.

    Nemo is a local to us here in KCMO, he did loose an engine on the way home from
    the nats, not sure what the cause was but last I heard he was in Penn, getting it
    repaired.

    NATS 47

    What a great event. It was nice to be able to put faces to names. It was a tough week trying to get there finally arriving at 10:45 pm Friday night. If all goes well I hope to be going to NATS 2020. Thank you to Smiley and Amie for what they do for everyone and the club.

    Cool

    The cheap digital Kodak camera takes an Ok picture,
    The old geezer holding the camera needs to just take more pictures...
    It felt good to be back out and about at a National van event.
    To make a long day trip like that was also a big deal for me.
    I really enjoyed hanging out at camp.
    Seeing new members with that I am having a blast attitude.all ways makes the Vintage Chevy Van Club camp site a pleasure to spent a week or so in. ....
