    Not this year. Next year more than likely though... maybe even with a camper trailer. Been on the hunt. Either find a little too much rot or just missing the bits I want (shower/shitter) for family trips.

    honestly the shower and shitter are way over-rated. Nice to have for emergency, but if you're in campgrounds you'll appreciate a showerhouse way more than doing your business in something the size of a telephone booth. Then you have to deal with the disposal. Cheap flip-flops are your friend.

    You'd think that... but considering most of the places I want to go don't have campgrounds when not in a national park, having a nice place to take a piss at 4am when Nature is being a pisser without having to go out into the muggy night would be really nice. And considering the ones I'm looking to find actually do exist in hard side pop-ups... that's what I'll be keeping an eye out for. If I buy one, I want my wife and kid to enjoy it too. If it was just me, sure... I'd use a bucket in the middle of the night.

    shame thats on the pricey side, it would be hilarious to dyno the diesel just to see if it actually puts triple digit power to the rear wheels. I suspect its around 90.

    Went and looked at the 03 Signature today, 69,500 miles, no rust on the body, no discernible dents, scratches, or other shmutz. Minor surface rust underneath, AC doesn't work, power mirrors aren't working. AC I know I can fix, power mirrors hopefully can be fixed. Owner won't go less than $3400 and that's by far the best deal within reasonable distance of me. Most people around here want $5-$8,000 for 2002 and earlier panthers with 150-200k miles on them. It's being held for me, I'm going to pick it up next Tuesday or Wednesday and unless something catastrophic happens I intend to be their for all of ScottFest.

    Don't know if I'll make it this year. The motor's done, and I have to run it over when the shop is done, which would be ideal to do during SF. But I can't really waste an extra trip out there and back and not take care of moving the wagons down to the (finished) shop and dropping the motor off and everything, and bringing back everything not needed for the swaps/install so I'm not bogged down too bad coming back in the finished wagon. I'll probably have an extra rear end coming back at a minimum.

    Plus I have a crapload of stuff to do at home I could take care of on my vacation week if the weather cooperates. Building a ramp for my deck, recoating my trailer roof, putting doors on my mom's shed and painting it. Etc.

    I read that as "relocating my roof" and wondered where else you'd put it.

    Smaller gatherings are cheaper

    Also it's more convenient to go places that may have limited room!

    I do miss the convoys of 15+ cars though.

    This will not be the last one! No way!
