Bob,

The Florida Fly Wheeler show is truly amazing. People come from all over the country. The outside display aisles are 17 miles long. People come with golf carts and all kinds of misc. vehicles. The parking lot aisles are all named after various existing and defunct tractor brands. They tractor tow platforms to pick people up in their row. There is no charge for parking, $7 admission fee.

They have a huge site. Within the site is a permanent village with a green, church, every imaginable small town building, stores, fire station, auto dealer, saw mill, ... all stocked with vintage 'stuff'.

Last year my favorite was a working 1/8th scale Wasp engine, amazing craftsmanship.

I've attended every year I happen to be here at show time, shows are 3 times a winter. Over Christmas season their village is lit up for the holiday and they have night time tractor rides thru the park, with a number of stops where member built treats are provided, the charge is canned goods for the hungry. It seems to be a really good group of people. (All treats are baked by the members.)

Best yet they have camping during their shows.

The Florida Flywheelers, another thing I could not imagine before hitting the road.

Mike McGee, That Utah journey sounds like a trip I did with my wife and two children back in 1987 but we also included the sites in Pikes Peak, 4 Corners, Yellowstone, Mt Rushmore, Wind Cave National Park, Custer National Park and more!!!! The trip took 6 weeks and a year to plan and reserve campgrounds in the more popular National Parks....all by mail...before the Internet. The planing was well worth the effort and I might retrace some of that trip one day....but....like Norm says...there is so much to see and so many places to visit and time is short...we saved a lot with both my wife and I working (sometimes more than one job at a time for me when I was younger).... We have enough money (if we budget our trips) to travel in our Travel Trailer and go where we wish....thank god for the RV...it makes so many more journeys possible...if we had to go via Hotel/Motel and restaurants the money would run out too soon to cover much ground.

Thanks, Norm, for the link to the Florida Fly Wheelers. I live an hour and a half away, and never heard of it. My uncle will love this.
