Just wanted to see if anyone here on the forum will be going to Pioneer Park Days in Zolfo Springs, Fl this year.

I'll be exhibiting there on Friday, Saturday, & part of Sunday ( March 5-7). If any of you all would like to meet up I'm set up at the east end of exhibitor row #4, near the park's office.

I'll be at the other end of the grounds, I think it's EX21. Silver Dodge truck, Silver Avion trailer, model engines on the tables.

Will look you up. Again, I think we met up last year, didn't we?

Yes we did. I do remember taking the long hike back there.:)

If you get chance come up and take a gander at my display this year. I've got a nice 3 HP Cook Motor Company hit & miss engine, and about 75 - 100 kerosene lanterns. Best to see the lanterns after dark as I attempt to have all of them lit. It usually runs about 10 - 15F warmer around my site.

Good to see you again! We walked up to your end of the grounds Saturday evening about 8:00 to view your lantern display. Quite impressive!

We left Sunday morning, taking a bit of extra time to stop at the Don Garlitz Museum of Drag Racing (http://www.garlits.com/index.html). Been driving past it every trip to Florida, but finally got to visit it. Awesome collection of dragsters, and a pretty nice collection of antique cars, too.

Presently at a campground in northern Florida, where it's only 35 degrees out. Am not looking forward to returning to Michigan!

I had a good time there Saturday just sitting there BS'ing about this and that. You've got some really nice model flywheel engines.

I believe that was you I passed while going northbound on I-75 this morning. We would have stopped but wanted to get through Atlanta before rush hour. That town is a real PIA to drive through.

Hope you all have a safe trip home and we'll probably see you next year.

Actually, I remember seeing you pass us, but didn't realize it was you at the time. My wife & I both remarked on the rig with the engine on the trailer. :-)

You gonna post some of those pics you took?
