That sounds great!  Yes making an extended trip would be a
great thing to do.  Good stuff you recommend, Bill.
Also, don't forget in between the area south on the jersey coast
has some beautiful beach areas that are wonderful in the late season.
Spring Lake is one town I discovered recently.  WOW!
Driving down the coast is an adventure.
Then you could make your way through Philly for the downtown
Constitition/Rev war sights if you have never seen them.
Yes I believe a week here could be a great trip!

Hey who's up for keeping their exhibit intact and getting double use
of it by also exhibiting the Kennett Classic show?
