Let's get together 22, 23, 24 August in Auburn, IN

If you like to get together, let's do it 22-24 August in Auburn, IN.

We can do a "mom and pop" kind of truck show, talk about officers, and goals... and compare notes about "the best selling trucks in America."

With several state parks with camping, hotels, museums, and good food in Garrett and Auburn... there would be something for the whole family. And if your spouse isn't in to trucks like "us", there is always the outlet mall up north, or several antique malls in the local towns -- to include Fort Wayne.

Camping, boating, and just driving in the country are yours for the taking and enjoyment -- sounds like an ad for Michigan (lol).

E-mail me if you are interested off line and I'll get some more information together for those that are outside the Auburn/Northeast Indiana area.

For starters, lets meet at 0900, 9am National Guard time, in the Kruse Automotive Museum's parking lot -- just take I69 to exit 126 and head west, you will see it on the northwest side of the interstate.

I'm from Fort Wayne, work in Garrett, and the third owner of my '92.... but my first was a '77, F150, with flares and a farmer's eight foot bed out back (maybe the current owner still has it and will come along... it was sold thru Bob Jackson's in New Haven as a trade-in).

That doesn't sound too bad. In fact they also have the old truck museum in the ACD building. That would be cool too.

I will have to check my calendar. I think that is the weekend I am going to Wisconsin to pick up my truck.

Bill,

Yeah, I thought going to Kruse would be easier to find, and then hit the Truck Musueum in Auburn, next to the ACD.... but I haven't checked the hours there - and if anything was happening on their property.

And the dates I picked were between the Antique Power and Tractor show at New Haven and the ACD Festival Labor Day... plus, my vacation expires about that time, too.

Let me know, so far you are the only one to reply on getting together as a group.

This past weekend there was a Porche group at Kruse, I drove by and didn't stop due to just getting off work... it was fairly large group. I think we could do better.

Branko,

I figured that is why you picked to meet a Kruses. Makes a lot of sense since it is right off the interstate. The date makes sense too.

I am supposed to go to the Masonic home festival on the 24th in Franklin, IN. I am not even sure if I am going to make that yet. Man, it seems like everything is happening in August.

Hopefully, If not everyone can make it to this one this will be a first in a long line of get togethers. Who knows. Maybe even a Christmas party. (I know where we can get a hall for free as long as we arrange the food with them)

Bill

Since there was only one reply, besides myself, I've decided to back off trying to get the first meeting of the Indiana Chapter in Auburn during the 23-25 August weekend.

With short notice, and the end of summer near at hand, this was a good idea, but not the right timing.

So for all those that read this message, thanks for the interest.

Perhaps we can get together next summer, following the winter of being held up in our homes and three feet of snow in our drive ways.

Think about Indy next year, White Waters State Park, or Eagle Park on the northwest side of the city... either would be half way from anywhere instead of all the way across the state to Auburn.

I'm interested in doing something, so keep in touch.

Remember the ACD Festival is coming up, a great way to see some old trucks and cycles (I drive a Beemer twin air cool). Perhaps I'll see you there.

Well, this sounds like a winter project for the spring of 2004.

OK, so there are two of us in the North, one in Central, now who's in the South.....

Let's hear from you guys and gals down South for some support in making this Indiana Chapter happen.

What I would look for is having some kind of road trip to Indy and meet at a local restraurant (Denny's, IHOP, or downtown on the Circle), after Labor Day -- so as to keep any pressure off from making a committment on short notice.

If YOU are interested - snow fighter, Indiana Trucker, and my fellow Ford Truck owners (to include those little Bronco II's that my wife likes so much) - send a reply.

OH, and if you can't make a weekend "meeting of the minds", I'm good for Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday as a general rule -- I just need an advance notice to reschedule my off day from work.

Thanks for the replies, looking forward to more of the same.

Snowfighter: Now that sounds like a good idea, I am planning on going to the show and maybe we can get a few of us together. Any ideas??

Indiana Trucker: I read in one of your post that you are a truck driver, who do you drive for?? I am also a truck driver, for USF Holland! I go through your city at least 3 times a week coming from our Ft. Wayne terminal to the South Bend terminal, After 33 years on the road maybe we have met at one time !!

Workin for the weekend,
Lenny
