Today, Saturday, brings us closer to an important number because after today we will be at the last two digit countdown day.  After today we will be only 10 days and a wake-up before members start arriving in Carlisle.  Single Digits arriving soon.

Due to the fact I have so much to take to Carlisle, Patsy and I will be driving over to the hotel on Monday morning to unload our GMC Terrain Denali of all of the registrations items, goodie bag items, canopy decoration items, door prizes and anything else that would not fit into the Monte along with the grandkids and our luggage for the trip over there on the 22nd.

After we drop that stuff off we will be heading to visit my sister and her husband down in the Raleigh, NC area for a mini-vacation.

Here are a few pictures of the Denali packed to take meet items to Carlisle first thing Monday morning.  .... Side door shows heavily packed, or should I say crammed full.  View from the rear show, I hope enough room for our baggage for the trip to North Carolina.

We are now down to 10 days and a wake-up until our first members  will start to arrive in Carlisle for the Eastern meet.  We can now continue our count using just the fingers on our two hands and don't have to take off our shoes and socks tomcount on our toes.

As of today we are down to 9 days and a wake up until we start arriving in Carlisle for the Eastern Meet. 

Patsy and I drove over to Carlisle this morning and delivered all of the eastern Meet items.  It was my hope they would have the canopies all set for the GM Nationals but they have not even finished cleaning up from the Ford Nationals that were a week and a half ago.

Rob, did you bring this heat with you down to NC? 100 today with a heat index of 110 to 115. I’m certainly hoping for cooler weather in Carlisle next week!

Sammy, it should be a little cooler in Carlisle, we will see.  I was going to look you up while we were over in Knightdale but our time there will be short and haven't seen my sister in a couple years so we will be filling that little time easily.  See you next week in Carlisle.

Sorry I missed a day on the countdown.  After today, Thursday, we will have only 5 days and a wake-up till we start arriving in Carlisle to kick off our Eastern Meet.  We will be down to a one hand count-down.  Patsy and I head home from our North Carolina family visit and head back to Pittsburgh and it will be full steam ahead for any last minute planning for the meet..... The tension, I mean excitement is building.

The reality is starting to settle in, this time next week I'll probably be standing outside the hotel drinking coffee looking at a parking lot full of First Gen's 😁

Officially off for a week now! Looking forward to seeing everyone and hopefully reigniting my car passion. Its been a hellish time lately at work, and havent wanted anything at all to do with any cars, let alone my Monte.  Hoping to get it detailed up before the ride on wednesday with Alaina. Alli will be up on thursday with Adriana and Anthony.

 Drive safe everyone, See you soon

Two night shifts on the 29th & 30th after this 2 week vacation. July 1st turn in the keys, should take about 10 minutes. Get paid for the whole day & off permanent, technically July 2nd.

I could develop a 'sickness' those last 2 nights, but I currently plan to show up. 🤧
