Going to do my best. I was originally coming home from Afghanistan in May, but now I'm here until the end of July. Will be tight time-wise, especially since I have to throw on my one-piece ds and supercharger when i get back first. Fingers crossed.

It's been a couple of years for you so we are hoping that you will be back in time to make it this year!

I'm really bummed out because I probably won't be going this year. I have to get my right hip replaced and I was told it would be at least four to six months before I would be back to normal.
The hip is so worn out now that I'm stuck in a wheel chair because they don't want any weight put on the hip.
I did all of the pre-operation stuff and cleared for surgery. I'll find out Friday the 7th. when and where.
The VA is doing it but I have to go to a specialist hospital because of the pin already in my leg.
I sure will be there in 2018 with my Mario, He is not going to be happy this year if we can't go.
We drive up from Daytona beach and the drive is as good as the show for Mario, He likes to stop at all the rest areas and sniff around.

We are going to miss you and Mario this year Ronnie. Good luck with your surgery. You will be as good as new in no time!!

I will know when and where they will do the surgery by Wednesday the 12th. I'm hoping they can do it real soon so I can recover enough to go. If they do it in April and things go good, I may be good enough to go in August. I'll just have to do the sitting again this year but I will at least be there.
The people that don't go because it may be a six or seven hour drive are really missing out on a great Mustang event.
If I ever do hit the lotto, Me and Mario are going to Mustang week in Sturgis S.D. I used to go on my Harley so I sure will enjoy going in my Mustang with Mario.
BUT, The Maple Grove all Mustang show is still my first choice due to it is """ONLY""" Mustangs and not any other brands of cars.
As far as ""TOO FAR TO DRIVE""" as Bucko always say's "Mustangs are to be driven"
To me the drive is a wonderful way to enjoy A Mustang.
The American Muscle show just tops the fun off 100%

Hi Grimkreg,
If your staying at the best Western, You will love the Motel parking lot show on Friday night. It is great. Saturday night there are still a bunch of Mustangs and people hanging in the parking lot.
I'm not sure, but I do believe that they offer a discount if attending the show.
I get a Veterans discount and if you belong to AAA or some other things, A discount is available.
My opinion is that this is the "PLACE TO STAY" but there is a Holiday Inn with an indoor pool as well as a few other places.
Have fun, and I'm sure you will love this Mustang event.
Ronnie

My gf would probably want a pool lol. Probably a good idea to get the option to cancel incase the show gets pushed back to the rain date?
Is it the best western plus reading inn 6.69 miles away? Ill probably end up pulling the trigger

Call the Best Western "DIRECT" at 610 777 7888 and make your reservations. Ask about the discounts they offer. AAA or AARP or maybe they have a special rate for the show.
I just reserve on line and they always had a list of discounts on the reservation page.

I really don't think so. I see the Doctor Monday to see when it will be done.
This is the absolute best Mustang show because it is for "ONLY MUSTANGS" and no other Fords or cars allowed.
My Mario will sure be disappointed but there is always next year.

I sure hope not.
You are going to love this event. I found the best place to stay is the BEST WESTERN in Shillington.
A very friendly nice clean place. The Parking lot is a Mustang show all to its self.
There is a touchless car wash up the street that does a great job and don't beat up your paint job.
It is

I hate missing it this year but last year I could not walk around much anyway. Mario & I just sat under the canape with other Forum members. It was still nice to be there though.
This year I can't hardly walk at all, So getting a new hip Tuesday.
I will be there next year

I would be there from Florida if I could this year and won't worry about the weather until the day of the show.
If I worried about if it would rain , I would never have done most of the events in the old days I attended on my Harley.
One thing for sure is if you worry about weather it will rain you will miss out on a lot of things in your life.
Ronnie

PS: Here is a video of a show held rain or shine and it was one of the best I ever attended. I don't think one single car packed up and left that all day rain show in Longwood Florida.

I was planning on going because i'm feeling better with my hip, but when I seen my Doctor July 13th. And I asked him if I could go and explained I would mostly be sitting and driving and sitting under a canape at the show and he just looked at me like I was crazy and he said NO.
He informed me I still have 8 or 10 holes in my femur that will take a few months to fill in and "NOT" to do anything dumb just because I'm feeling no pain except when I walk a lot.
My Mario is one sad dog because he loves to travel and stay in Best Westerns, He really loves enjoying his friends at the show and having his picture taken by people.
Me, I just like the event and everybody there with their Mustangs.
Next year, we will be there. (((HOPEFULLY)))
