RT ordered tickets. Likely Ray will be there as well. And of course Ed. Who can forget Ed?

We may have a mystery visitor, depending on how things work out. Won't know until we are closer to VMD.

I am still planning on seeing some of you mutts Wednesday, July 4 for the kick off dinner. No excuses.

And for those of you who plan on being in New Phila on the 4th, maybe inquire about rooms soon, hotels are tight again on room availability due to the local economy.

A pass is the best deal. If you are an AMA member, there is still some time to get passes at member prices, thought that ends soon.

If you want to camp, yes, you need a camping pass. If you can stand us, we will likely have a place saved in our little "compound" to camp. We will have shelter from the sun and monsoon rains (you get both, sometimes at the same time at Mid Ohio eek ), BS by the bucket full, and even more BS.

Bring comfortable shoes for the swap meet, a lot of walking. A pit bike is nice to get around, but the track can be a bit prickly about unlicensed bikes with no lights. So if you have a pit bike, make sure it has semi working lights and a plate. You likely can't afford to rent one of the golf carts there.

There is a vintage flat track run by the Steve Nace organization Saturday night in Ashland OH. We generally ride to Ashland. Nace knows how to run a race. There is some of what passes for vintage road racing as well. The off road stuff is pretty well attended and is held on site at Mid Ohio.

I can stand anyone, the question is can you stand me.....How will I know where your compound is? Do I drive in ? Walking is no problem for me..

When you go through the campground gate go right towards the tree line, you'll find them.

As shel said, drive into the general camping area and take first road to the right past the "camping office". We will be at the end, lately on the LH side of the road. Some large white canopies with colorful tarps hanging off the sides. May also be a large police presence eek

When it gets closer to VMD, I will give you contact info so you can call us if needed.

If yer bringing a street bike it's pretty convenient to ride up to the swap area. I believe they allow parking on the median strip again. If you have a BSA you can park at the OVBSAOC compound. I think you are a Triumph guy though. Not that I mind or anything...

Friday would likely be the best day. Saturday tends to be more crowded, Sunday is largely get out Dodge day.

Stop by the campground and say hello at some point.

So let's say I show up with $3500 in my pocket.. What are my odds of finding a reasonably complete and possible running British 650 twin with legitimate title/transferable registration? A friend who has been a seller at Mid Ohio for 10 years but not in the last 5 years says it's primarily a Japanese and oddball bike swap meet...

So Mike, you heading out Wednesday in the Prius? If so, we are meeting for dinner Wednesday evening in New Phila. Don’t think they shoot Prius drivers on Wednesday in New Phila laughing . Think they save that for the weekend......

I'm glad they take some days off not to beat random Pri-I.uses? ?? anyway, thanks for the invite, but i'm headed out from NJ Thurs. AM. arrival will be somewhere between 1 and 4 pm. Ed. usually beats me there by a few hours and has the Base Camp established, cigar in hand and a cocktail at the ready....... I expect nothing different this year. Hoping for good weather. the last few have been alittle "damp".
