Sorry to hear about/see the upper pasture situation.

Thanks for the update Lee. It will work out of course. I see my van multiplied in your photo

I'm coming in a little late so will set up wherever there is space, by the Welcome Center works fine too.

All,

I'm not sure who else is bringing items for a mini swap meet, but I'm planning on bringing the following:

1. Smittybilt air compressor I mentioned previously in this thread.

2. Awning brackets I purchased from 1der in Oct 2017 (never used...I don't even think I've opened the box). Paid $190 at the time.

3. Used rear Bushwacker fender flares (part 22004-11). These are from a 2006 Ford SMB. They are used but in good condition. I needed to get 2 new fender flares for the front (since one was broken) so decided to also get 2 new flares for the rear. I'm not sure if the screws will be included in this sale, as I have yet to receive the new flares and not sure if the hardware comes with them.

If anyone is interested, please let me know. I will consider all good/reasonable offers!

As long as Marret is there to wrestle it again, we’re good!

Trout Fest schedule is out. Antique cars, flea market, cloggers, and even a 4-H Raffle. Most of the activities take place in and around the Potomac Highlands Rec Center on Confederate Rd in Franklin, WV. I didn't see anything about Raccoon Wrestling so Marret is out of luck.

Well, that works as my coon wrestler, Veeta, will not be in attendance this year. It will have to be a team response.

Just rode through Franklin on my motorcycle trip. Trout Fest banner was up.

I may have interest in these - slowly losing the powder coat on mine. I've held off replacing simply because I'm not sure whats involved if I back out the outer bolts (everything inside the van is covered).
We can discuss the weekend of the Rally.
