Only 4 thus far!  I'll try to do better.  I've driven to 3.  I tend to only go if they are within 5 hours driving.  I do plan to fly on for this one though. 

 

LOL...I’d never have gotten to one if I only went to the ones within 5 hours drive.  Closest was Rochester, MN - Google Maps says that’s a minimum 8.5 hr drive...we didn’t go entirely on Interstates, so it took a chunk longer.

 

I hope everyone who has a National close by every now and again appreciates it.

Well 2021 will be the closest one I've ever been to a meet, even closer than 2012...I mean the showfield is in the same place as 2012 but I moved closer since... I can see the host hotel out my back window now. A whole 3 miles....and the funny thing is I wont even get the "shortest driven award"... Dad has me beat by a half mile.  😂   I get to go down hill all the way so even my non-running Buicks should be able to make it there...I can worry about getting them back later...LOL

Brian,

 

Hope I remember my physics, can you figure out how to save the kinetic energy for the trip home?

First one in 2009 Colorado Springs with the 1932 67S. Made consecutive years except for Portland due to death in the family.  I was part of the host North Texas Chapter for Oklahoma so I count 10 meets.  We are looking forward to Cleveland and Concord and plan on driving the 67 Sportwagon GS400 "Tribute" to both.

They have all their appeal. The two I was happiest to see finished were the two Danvers meets. . The great part was seeing that people had a good time, the hard part was the responsibility and stress of running a National Meet. You would have thought, I would have learned form the first one.
