Coming from Clarksville, TN
10th National, 7 in a row before last year

The one that said $70 was to much to spend to go doesn't love this hobby. Most of us will spend easily $100 a day just on hotel, admission, etc. That isn't counting the gas to get there. Delete your account on here would be my suggestion. LOL!!

Coming from Pennsylvania! I convinced my wife to take the kids to "visit her family" and about a week after we planned the trip, I told her that the National just happened to be in Chicago the same week...she was not amused but I'm still going!!

Cannot wait to be back. 8th National trip in a row, and Chicago is the best of them all. Cant wait to be there again and hopefully meet some more members!

Will be there all week. Helping a dealer set up and will be there through Sunday!

Knoxville, TN. It is awesome to see all the people posting that this is their first time. My first time was so exciting and overwhelming.

Des Moines IA. Debating myself whether to go. I dislike paying the tolls which amount to around $60 or so getting in and out of the city. It is a total rip off and drives me nuts.

The tolls will probably keep me from going. And that is OK.

Wonder how many on here are envious of this? I'm guessing you've never been to the National.

I've been the last two times it was held in Chicago. Have also been to a few of the periodic Fan Fest shows in the past couple of years. I guess you guessed wrong...

I'm OK with not going this year. Have fun. No need for envy.
