    It's that time of year again.... Preparing for the 2016 Ford Nationals!

    Hotels book quickly.

    Ford Performance event from 2015

    Carlisle Show Info:

    $55 registration fee
    We usually register with the Liberty SHO club (though several 'clubs' show up). We've had SHO representation from Canada to Florida to Texas to Illinois in years past. The number of pre-registrations help determine our place on the field and if we get a tent or not. We had one year when folks didn't register until April/May and we were bunched up in a side area of the field with a small tent. So, if you can, register within the next month or two. It's a fun time for all...

    Some photos of years past (see prior year threads for more):

    I will def be there, already have work scheduled off. Other than Convention, this has been the 2nd biggest gathering of SHO's. Then only bad thing is that the "sea of Mustangs" is growing. Hope everyone can make it, will be the first one with my new white '13. Kraus will be in the Caribbean, but hoping Rich and Mary show up.

    This is the time when I submit my mileage charts to help in planning. I will use Carlisle and the corresponding city downtown as a reference you can adjust from there, some distances may be shorter or longer depending on whether you travel through downtown.....Example Irving, TX - Carlisle, PA 1371 but through Downtown, Dallas, TX and Memphis, TN.

    Distances rounded to nearest 25 miles This isn't every major city but some major metro areas for selected regions

    2000 miles +

    San Diego, CA 2725..........probably out of most peoples reach but again That is probably the extreme.
    Los Angeles, CA 2600
    Las Vegas, NV 2375
    Phoenix, AZ 2325
    Salt Lake City, UT 2025

    1000-1999K Miles

    Albuquerque, NM 1800
    Denver, CO 1525
    Houston, TX 1450
    Fort Worth, TX 1400 miles.
    Oklahoma City, OK 1300
    Minneapolis, MN 1075
    Kansas City, KS 1025......yes I used the Kansas side worst case.

    500-999

    Orlando, FL 925
    Cedar Rapids, IA 900
    St. Louis, MO 800
    Atlanta, GA 700
    Chicago, IL 650
    Indianapolis, IN 550

    0-499
    Charlotte, NC 475
    Detroit, MI 475
    Boston, MA 425
    Columbus, OH 375
    Cleveland , OH 325
    Albany, NY 325
    Buffalo, NY, 300..........Just incase you forgot Franchise
    Richmond, VA 225

    I posted this in Gen4 area too, but just in case. The dyno shop in going to Friday is close to the Carlisle Fairgrounds. Going to ask what a group rate would be and how much of a commitment they would be from us. Just and idea.

    Just heads up for anyone coming to FORD Nationals in June and running route 11/15 south. There is a detour in place where 11/15 connects with 22/322. The detour is in place cause PennDot is working on the mountain just north of where 11/15 connects with I-81. So plan ahead.
