I am on the Pasadena/Glen Burnie line. When the weather is nicer, we sometimes make our way to Annapolis Cars and Coffee. There are others in the state but I signed a non-disclosure agreement and will let them identify themselves.

Happy to send you a phone number to gather at some point if you want to PM.

I have a Spyder, a Cayman and a VW Thing (wife's really). Two of those are likely to make it to Carlisle.

Well, if Ray can't make it down there, guess I'm in the same sinking boat.

Bloody hell - that will be two years in a row. 

Well there is someone who flew in from Turkey and refused the In bound Covid test and the forced Isolation to a hotel in Toronto.  He got a ticket for $800 then was escorted out of the airport.

He was interviewed and it seems that none of the fines are being paid as they are unconstitutional and get thrown out of court.

There is a secret passage way and I could tell you @Robert M  but then this list is not private

@Bob: IM S6 @IaM-Ray You guys should load your cars on a cargo ship in Vancouver, Canada and disembark in Ensensada, Mexico. Drive up through the U.S. border crossing in Tiajuana, into California (a frigging sanctuary State) since they are not stopping any foreign immigrants (legal or not, or vaccinated or not). Then drive up to San Luis Obispo for the West Coast Cruise.

Lol, that is really funny Jim I hear I can come back through the holes left in either Texas or New Mexico, do you have a recommendation, I am just biden-ing my time.

Checking in, gentlemen.

As things stand now, Mid-late May is looking pretty good. Yeah, a lot of folks will not yet have been vaccinated (including my wife and I, probably), but a lot of folks will have been. Barring a resurgence by some new and more evil strain, I think it will probably be safe enough for most of the folks on this board to risk, though masks will probably still be mandatory.

As for the linked article: it's not some Holman Jenkins nonsense. It's by Marty Makary, a Hopkins oncologist who has done a lot of work on the prevention of medical errors. He is not an epidemiologist but he's a smart MD with some pretty good risk management chops and his head is on straight. I interviewed him years ago after reviewing one of his books.

The gist of his WSJ opinion piece is: things may not be as bad as they seem, and they might be getting better faster than most experts realize. It is not a universal opinion; this expert is pushing back.

But it's worth considering, since we're obliged to plan things out a few months ahead of time.

"Hope for the best and prepare for the worst," right? I figure in this context that means "book the rooms and wax the car, and if it all goes sour, pull the plug and hunker down at the last minute."

I am cautiously optimistic we will indeed be able to roll Carlisle this year.

Greetings,

Is it too early to learn about the likely agenda for Friday, Saturday and Sunday?  What's the best day to arrive and leave?  What does everyone do while there, e.g. dinners together, show and tell, fix-it sessions, isn't there another car show or something that's held the same weekend, etc???

Remember seeing an earlier show's agenda but can't find it now.

Thanks,

Marshall

At lot of folks arrive on Thursday with a few die-hards arriving Wednesday.  Most folks start leaving Sunday morning, so there's usually no agenda for that day.  Friday is often the best day as that is when the cruises usually are.  Not sure what Ed and Alan have in store for us this year.

Yes, there will be a registration form to fill out and return, no fees to attend but usually we mail in the cost of the Saturday evening banquet tickets which is always a lot of fun and good times.  Carlisle has been a top event for me for the past 13 years.  Great friends and great times and the biggest benefit of owning my Speedster!  Look forward to meeting you.
