        One man's opinion. I have heard more people say that they will not drive for four or more days (round trip) for a convention that will only last for four days.

            EVERYONE in the SDC had a chance to comment on the questionnaire before during and after the meet in St. Louis. That questionnaire is being acted upon to the best of the organizations abilities. If the "silent majority" did not speak up, that is their prerogative. I, personally,
            am hoping for the best & will continue to attend every meet I can (time and finances permitting).

              Duane, good point - as that input was encouraged.

                  I know several folks who sent in the survey ( myself included) and stated they were not in favor of a four day meet. I guess we will have to wait and see what happens.

                    For me it's all about the journey....in a 60+ year old car I continue to look for the roads less traveled...getting there is a experience all it's own...being there is only part of the fun....finding a different way home is another new opportunity to see new and different sights....
                    I'm always amazed at the people I meet while stopping for gas...the stories they have about old cars (stories sometimes even with Studebaker content)...The directions I get to hole in the wall eateries...or...beautiful out of the way State/County parks...It's a big country..there's a lot to see...and to top it off there's a Studebaker car gathering in the middle of the trip.....Things always look better when viewed through the windshield of a Studebaker...

                      jeds55, I certainly agree with you. Some of our Eastern North Carolina Chapter caravaned together to Dover and to the last IM in South Bend. It was a blast. We are planning another caravan to South Bend in 2017. We to mostly stay off of major highways and hit the back roads and the small towns along the way.

                            No reason you can't go early and have an unofficial meet extension. Plenty to do in the area to keep people busy.
