Dang, we aren't going to make it this year as planned because of the engine rebuild and other things, saving our pennies for 2019.

Just now made my reservations at Holiday Inn. 

Heads up: Cannot book the Holiday Inn through its website. It shows no rooms available.  I called the hotel directly and was told that was a change this year.  Also, starting this year a 1-night deposit is required at time of registration, which was $120 + tax = $136.43.

Good to know someone has received the entry card.  My check was cashed a few weeks ago, so I guess my entry card will be showing up soon.

According to the shop, my 77 is supposed to be done this Saturday 5th, after a tumultuous 4.5 year off-frame restoration (http://transamcountry.com/community/index.php?topic=56714.0).

Then again, the same was said about this time last year and many of you know how that went.  Anyway, this time around there are far fewer things remaining, so though it is down to the wire the chances are better this year that it will make it.
