For those of us "poor schleps" unable to attend the Cedar Rapids meet, it might get pretty lonely this coming week.:( Any of you guys who have the ability to keep in touch...keep us informed.:) Keep your cameras ready and loaded. Last week when my family and I had our "Drive your Studebaker" event, I took pictures on the road.[^] However, I got so excited and busy visiting with others at the meet, I forgot to take pictures.:( I hope you all have a great time and safe trips!:)

John, I will have my laptop, and will post pictures whenever I have a chance.

I'm getting ready to head out now. Driving 4 hours to Atlanta in the '58, staying there for the weekend. Sunday night, I take a 2 hour flight into Cedar Rapids. [8D]

Look out in the airport, Matt. The latest security measures may be shocking for someone not used to flying. Suffice it to say if they have you remove your shoes, get ready for a strip search and rubber gloves.

Yes, YES YES, Just heard, not sure if it will be implemented by this weekend, but, they may start making people take apart their cell phones and remove the battery cause you can slip a razor blade in there......

Ok how about my shorts pocket? that amount of metal wouldn't set off an alarm.

The quality and quantity of the pictures and video last year made not being in Lancaster more bearable. Please post if you can.

Air Port Security is a PAIN with a good purpose,it's here to stay. I hope it works as well as we are made to believe it works.

When we travelled in Europe, the train systems were much faster when you figured in airport time for security and most cities only had one place to get on a plane. I've always wondered how the train stations get by with such little security, but I suppose they do take more hits than air travel. I wonder if you factor in "passenger miles" like they do comparing air to auto travel how the numbers look?

And speaking of auto travel, (had to get back on topic) what is the percentage of folks arriving in style in a Stude at the International vs other inferior modes of travel?

As Paul Harvey used to say -Just what, not why: I always take my passport with me even flying domestic. For some reason the check in people seem to like it when you have a drivers license AND passport for photo IDs. Or maybe it's just my honest face and kind demeanor. ;)

I have already been warned about the airport security. I'm in Atlanta now, staying at Tom Elliott's house. Tom retired from Delta Airlines, so he filled me in on everything I need to know.

If all goes well, I will be there Sunday. :)

Make sure you check your luggage before leaving. A friend of mine played a joke on another friend and put a whole box of dog buscuits in his suitcase. The drug dogs at the luggage inspection in Jamacia went nuts! The poor fellow had a lot of explaining to do.

Sorry Nathan, but no, the '58 will not be in Cedar Rapids. Of course, it's only a thousand miles one way... [:o)]

The car is in Atlanta for the week at Tom's house, while he and I drool over Studes in Iowa. You're more than welcome to come look the car over if you want. :D But be forewarned, Tom's daughter might have hot wired it and have it out for a drive.... She'll fight you for the driver's seat.

It is amazing to see the 'puter progress we have made in a few short years...
Not all that long ago, if someone were to make a few mid-week post's (on the old newsgroup), it was a real big deal..
Then the effort was made to go 'live' one year (Red Wing), and that was an even better deal.
Now that an even bigger percentage of Stude types are online and live, the immediacy of it all is apparent.
And... How soon our daily fix of Stude stuff is not satisfied;).
I remember when a bi-monthly 8&1/2x11 mimeograph chapter newsletter was a highlight of the month.
Now we have hundreds, if not thousands, of pic's uploaded daily.
Tis' an amazing thing, isn't it?

I assumed you were going to comment on the GPS unit seen on the dash of Matt's '58.
