Had a great but short time at Hershey, hats off to the organization for putting on a great event.
As I sat for a couple hours manning the Pierce Arrow Society tent, I saw what I thought were a lot of golf carts or other personal powered transportation devices. Thinking of that and the recent discussions on age of members........
I decided to fire up the WABAC machine, a time machine that I acquired years ago from Mr. Peabody. Being a tinkering engrinear (hey, I went to school for it and I are one!), I've modified the WABAC machine to also travel forward in time.
I was soon at the Hershey grounds in 2025, and was able to buy a program for 1/2 ounce of gold (since obviously I hadn't pre-registered), luckily I'd brought along a pocketful of gold and silver bars.
Reading the regulations for the flea market was of most interest, and I present it here from memory:
"For the third year, each flea market field will be set up in the serpentine configuration, with aisles four feet wide, and entrance and exit clearly marked. Each attendee can only pass through a field once with their hydrogen powered golf cart. Emergency exits are provided every 100 yards, but once a golf cart leaves the field it may NOT return to that field until the next day. WALKING IS PROHIBITED, and only officials with red, dated passes, surgistapled to their forearm may go on foot anywhere in the flea market area. Vendors are to be set up on each side of the four foot aisle, and no part or parts can extend into the aisle. All parts must be clearly marked with a bar code and price, to be scanned by a purchaser and delivered to them at the exit of the field (via the new HoverPart system). All bar codes must be within arms length of the aisle, as no one may leave a golf cart for any reason. Please abide by these rules, as offenders will be dealt with severely, with the newly developed Memoraser, which will erase all memory of the event as you are sent home.
Thank you, and be sure to enjoy the new PlastiPreservation class, where original cars are sealed in a cube of clear PlastiPlate for all eternity."
It was quite a sight......
