  1. I wish the swap meet was Monday through Friday with the car show on Saturday. Unless you're not looking for parts, you never finish the entire swap meet before it ends. So a couple extra days would be awesome. Earl
  2. Hello, Any updates to share on mobility scooters and handicap parking without a placard. Need to be able to park where the scooter can be unloaded and driven to the show. We stay at Hersheypark Camping Resort. I've never seen a handicap shuttle at the campground. So due to the scooter we'd have to drive to the show daily, which we've never done before. Thanks, Earl
  3. I hope the person is doing well! Thanks, Earl
  4. Steve, Happen to find out about the parking? Do you happen to have a copy of the forum we are to sign during the registration that you can post or send to me? Would like to know what we are expected to sign ahead of time. Thanks, Earl
  5. Were you able to contract the room for future years? We camp at the Hershey Campground Resort and sign a contract to lock the site to us. Earl
  6. I fully agree. Golf carts shouldn't be allowed. Single and double personal mobility scooters are very affordable new and used. Also health care tends to pay for them. My buddy. Stepped out of a porta pot at Hershey and almost got hit. Guy was too lazy to get off the cart and walk to the trash can. So he drives up to it then drives up close and pass the porta pots. The door swung open, he stepped out and porta pot door almost hit the golf cart that's how close the lazy moron got to the porta pots. I tell you, if someone hits me on a golf cart, I will pull them off of it and flip it over in self defense. I won't take being ran down lightly. They also think they have the right away. They think dragging a can or chain is their authority to override a pedestrians lawful right away. Thanks, Earl Thanks, I appreciate your time and help! Earl
  7. Thanks for the reply! So much false info floating around. The scooter is electric. It's a small rascal type personal mobility scooter. Comes apart for hauling in a trunk. By no means anything like a golf cart. We camp at the Hershey Campground Resort and take the shuttle buses. Obviously with hauling the scooter we would drive to the show and park daily. WITHOUT a handicap placard, where do you suggest we park my truck to have scooter access to and from? Especially the first morning to register it? We never drove in before, always shuttles. Thanks, Earl
  8. Hello, My friend is 81 and had a very difficult time getting around Hershey in 2019. I bought her a 4-wheel single person mobility scooter to use at Hershey but appears it has to be registered with the event officials. She doesn't have a handicap placard and is being stubborn and too full of pride to apply for one from her doctor. Can it still be registered without a placard? I'm reading all kinds of answers on searches. Some say you have to have a placard and others say you don't, just sign a form and you're registered. Also read some do not register their scooters and have no issues. Which is odd cause a guard tried to force us to register a walker. We said ok and didn't. Woman was pretty rude about it. Thanks Earl
  9. WiFi is down and was before we go here. They said no guarantee it will be fix. Instead of an apology and/or discount they said go to a Starbucks. Lol Earl
  10. Dirt cheap. I'm paying 366 for 7 days this year and 534 next year for 7 days. WiFi doesn't work. Earl
  11. My neighbor has been coming for 30 years and they said they won't be back with the sky rocket price increase. Nothing has changed. Place is still run down with pot holes. There are 4 WiFi connections but none of them work. The cable TV reception is crappy. Than you add the train and quarry yet. Just can't see the place being worth what they want. I've stayed in much much better campgrounds for fraction of the cost. We'll be taking a vote among the 5 of us if we will continue staying here. They changed the contract and increased the deposit as well. Just not feeling it. Especially after spending half an hour trying to get on their WiFi system. Earl
  12. I'm going. Leaving in an hour or so. Staying Sunday through Sunday at the Hersheypark Camping Resort. Earl
  13. Thanks! I bought a program last year. Only used it for the maps. I wasn't on a hunt for anything last year. Didn't think about the program. Than again I only remember the maps in it. Lol Earl
  14. Is there car manual vendors at Hershey? I'm in need of a parts list manual for my 1952 Dodge Coronet. Happen to know any space numbers? I was there last year but I don't recall any manual vendors but I wasn't looking for one at the time. Thanks, Earl
  15. I got an email where they dropped my total by 60 bucks. Better than nothing I guess. Earl
  16. I will talk to Nick when I get there on Sunday. She's my go to person. I haven't even put the required deposit down not alone pay it. Holding off till I get with Nick to see what she says. I forget the lady that's in charge of the contract sites, Pam maybe? Anyways, Nick will get me answers. She's my New Zealand secret weapon lol Earl
  17. I sure hope your right. My group voted no on renewal for 2016. I was already billed so I have my doubts its wrong. Especially after calling and being told it was correct. I will wait till the show and see what they say. Until then I won't pay my balance. Couldn't tell you about the bathrooms or cabins. I have an rv so I don't use those. The camping areas are what I know and they aren't very good. Again, I only stay there cause of the show and the close proximity and shuttle buses. It's not so much the rate (which is high for what you get) but the almost double price jump. That's just greedy. The place sells out for the show. No need to take advantage of ppl beyond the normal price gouging. Earl
  18. Dry camping will allow you to dump at Hershey Camping Resort. Earl
  19. No updates done to the Hershey Camping Resort. It's old, outdated and very cramped. Potholes everywhere. Earl
  20. That's extremely high rate for a camp site. The $228.00 increase from one year to the next is just outrageous. The campground is old and outdated and very cramped. Than you add the freight trains that run next to the campground 24/7 and the helicopters coming and going from Hershey medical center and the active quarry next to it, makes it very undesirable place to stay. I'd never stay there other than for the fall meet. Not sure with the outrageous price increase if we will keep the site. Looks to be much cheaper to dry camp and pay to run the genset and pay for showers. I will talk to the management in Oct and we'll see what they say and than take a group vote if we will keep the site. Hershey Entertainment is no longer a great asset to Pennsylvania. They are now greedy and corporate ran and it easily shows. Earl
  21. It's for a contracted rv site with full hookups. Went from 366 for Sunday through Sunday to 594 Sunday through Sunday for 2016. Earl
  22. Called Hershey Camping Resort and the guy said the rate is correct and that the rates were going up. He wasn't much help. 5 of us camp so will have to take a group vote on the 228.00 increase. Earl
  23. I got my reservation for 2016 emailed this evening from Hershey Camping Resort and it's almost double from this year and 2014 year. I emailed them to see if that's correct. Anyone else get their 2016 reservation yet? Price went up 228 bucks from 2015. If that's correct, there will be a contracted site come available for 2016. Thanks, Earl
  24. They guy I spoke to said his name but I don't recall it. I called this number (717) 566-7720. Don't recall what office it was. If it's Hershey Region or if it's for the fall meet. The 3 ladies I spoke to at Hershey Resorts Campground were excellent! No complaints there!. I also emailed a couple of times to a couple of emails and never got a reply. I'm not exaggerating this stuff. Lol Yes Carlisle is a profit organization but that shouldn't mean a nonprofit organization can't be as informative and have a better up to date Web site. I'm sure you get lots of spectators that aren't registered or members. Sorry, not trying to stir the pot but just want ppl to know it's not easy for new ppl to get info to attend and/or camp. Keeping the fall meet Web site up to date and explaining how and where to camp and who to contact for more info would go a long way. I know AACA doesn't have anything to do with the camping but they can at least pass it into their members and guests. I am coming and if it's a good show I will come every year. Guess Carlisle Events has spoiled me rotten lol Earl
  25. Paid or volunteer, don't do it if you're going to be rude or lack ppl skills. The Web site for the fall meet is a outdated joke. So not the largest show anymore? That guy lied as well as being rude and unhelpful. He said it was the largest show. I'm going to give the show a try. So far it's not looking good. I didn't bother to book a camp site for next year cause of all the total lack of help and info and lack of organization. Maybe the show will rock and it's just **** poor ppl running it? Time will tell. Night and day differences between Carlisle Events and the AACA Hershey. Earl
