  • Traveling to Phoenix 2010

    I just finished booking our rooms for the Glendale Meet, we are really looking forward to it. This week I'll contact Vintage Air and order a new Compressor bracket so we can arrive alive and not burnt to a crisp. We've road tested the Wagonaire pretty well this summer putting on over 4500 miles to date and there's still our fall tour yet to go.

    Reading the various threads, there certainly seems to be some interest in the 2010 meet. I have read that a number of folks from the eastern part of the US are planning the trip as are a few of us from Central Canada. Is there a way to establish a page or link so that people, such as myself, can plot out our route and dates of travel and post them at this "link" so that members along the way can make contact with those of us on the road.

    After viewing Bob Johnson caravan to the coast posted at his site, I thought maybe we could do some type of 'in-transit' activity, posting our various locations and the members we met along the way.
    I just thought it would be interesting to get a little taste from the many members who will be making this trip and others along the way.


    I cannot do anything technical on a computer, like set up a web page to do this, truth be told I'm pushing the envelope just tickling these keys.

    Does this have any merit?
    Your thoughts.

    I am sure a Glendale 2010 Forum will appear in due time such as was done with the Cedar Rapids meet.

        Good for you, Bill! For me it's 2400 miles one way, I don't even want to drive that in a modern car[xx(] Maybe if I didn't have to get back to work...

        I do hope to get a look around the area some while I'm there, but we'll see... I'm not even sure I'll be able to get away then! I booked my room, though (thinking positive!)

          We are going but we decided against driving one of the Studes , its just too far . Wouldn't be bad one way but after a week of all that excitement I don't want to drive home and anyways we booked flights out of Buffalo and heck the cost of that wouldn't feed the Studebaker one way !
          See ya there though , sure looking forward to it

                I'm planning on going. My problem is I will probably want to adopt something that will need to be driven...or dragged back. Bams is a bad influence

                  Hey BP- I do love my road trips, but I'd need too many extra days to allow driving. I would love to see the country along the way! Not to mention I'll hate not having my trusty tow dolly with me (just in case). Dave, I'm not a bad influence, I'm helping you!!

                  Denny, you can bet, if it's at all possible I'll see you there!

                    The Glendale Meet already has a good feel to it & so far we have a room booked for us at Meet Headquarters. If Qantas has a problem flying across the big pond then I guess we can still swim.

                        Interesting, all this far-flung buzz about the Glendale meet: California, Ohio, New York, Ontario...and Australia! I too am mulling making Glendale my first International meet (aboard "The Pretend Wagonaire", my Pontiac Vibe; depending how the next couple months go here I may actually be out of real Studes by next May anyway, but certainly not out of SDC). Have never been to AZ. Old planes are another passion of mine and AZ has plenty of those; and of course it would be most cool to see so many Studebakers I'd not otherwise get the chance to see except in TW or here on the Forum...Plus, May's about the best month of all for vacation time when you work at a university. Now if I can just hang onto the Lark until then...

                          Add Pennsylvania to the list of attending states for the 2010 meet. We spend some time out there each winter and I love the area. Lots of interesting things to see, good eats, and just an all around great spot to visit. Might be warm but NOT humid. I can't wait. AND, the AZ chapter people are fantastic and know how to organize and run a first rate meet. If you are 'thinking' of going, call the host hotel, make a res, and join the fun. YOU WILL NOT REGRET IT!

                            I'm seriously thinking of attending the meet as it's an easy day's drive for my 62 Hawk. Bud

                              We are thinking of coming over, since our daughter wants to spend her 21st birthday in Las Vegas (May 31) and looks like about a 6 hour drive from there!
                              We will be taking the "Big Bird" no vending this time.
                              Bud, get with me, have NOT seen you in almost 20 years!
