I left Carlisle around 8 AM and pulled into my driveway at 12:30 PM.
Made two short stops; one to fill the tank and one to empty the other tank.
Now I am unpacking and cleaning up the Vette for a dinner meeting tomorrow night.

Dave - Glad to hear you made it back ok!  Frank & I left the campground around 1:30 & got home around 4....after a brief stop at his mom's.

I know Dave & Mary, Al & Lori, Dave & Nadine & Mark & Shirley all made it home ok...hadn't heard from anyone else.

Had a great time!  Jeff, thanks for taking care of Friday's arrangements!

Can't wait to see everyone again!

Whined up the driveway at 2pm (left Pa. @ 9am) Once we got to Deposit we stopped a
for a quick bite to eat. Then Lori drove the last leg home on rt.8 she booked right along, made all the lights in Sidney and saw a big wanted poster of Bonnie & Clyde at the Hess gas station.
About an hour from home turned on the radio and hand tuned in a station. Lost anything good about 15 minutes later and shut the radio back off. Slowed down to cross rt. 20 and heard a whinning sound coming from rear of car....hmmm rear end problems????
Then I said no that's the power antenna motor, when it went back down it must have broke the plastic cable. When that happens it just keeps running like it's trying to retract the antenna. I had nothing to cut the wire so said heck with it let it run. Did not burn out so guess I'll buy another replacement.... if I had known could have picked the part up in Carlisle!
Ebowoman had a great time throwing the vette around the curves, ahh a happy wife means a good (maybe another vette) wife! 
Great seeing everyone and chatting with the new friends!

We got home fine yesterday, thankfully uneventful trip.
We stopped for gas (of course we did), and Chris got a Hershey bar, it sounded good until you realize that we are driving a mobile sauna, no one brings chocolate into a sauna. It was good but not a pretty site. Maybe we should test M&Ms next time to see what their melting point is.

Ebo - it was very nice of you to buy the first round Friday night for Adam (because that is what he always does).
Don't forget to submit your expense form..

We got home around 3 and all is well. Had a great time seeing old friends & making new ones. Weather was good.
Feel bad for Dan (Danascar) he got a bo-bo on his Vette.
See you guys soon.
Dave

John, I always do what the boss says to do! Have to admit those 6 pitchers of appletini's went down pretty fast. Luckly our table had a few less than yours and we had a bit more. It actually may be the cheapest bill Adam has had at any of the Corvette @ Carlisle's yet!

I'm so sorry we did not get any chat time. I tried to stick around the campsite as much as possible.
This is the first time we were able to cover the full grounds. The weather was great for shopping.
ebo

Glad everybody made it home safe. We stopped in Sunday around 10 and only saw Barry's car. Did get to park my Subaru on the Showfield. Tried Saturday to finish the vette but discovered they sent me the wrong drive shaft. Hope to see everybody soon.

Great that everyone got home ok.
I stuck around till about 1:00 or so and caravaned back with some friends that live near me.
I let them lead and instead of going up rt 15, which is the shortest and quickest way, they took rt 81 to syracuse and I had to double back to rochester area. But it was a great day and I didnt care because I got to drive the beast for an extra hour or more!!

We made it back ok. It was great to see everyone and meet a couple new members. Hopefully we will be able to spent a little more time chatting. My apologies to those I didn't get to talk to. 

I have to admit, the C3VR crowd is more inviting than the "CorvettePals." I stopped by their tent and I did recognized a couple folks there, but they didn't seem to care. Just said sign the book and the banner. That was about it. All in all it doesn't really matter to me since I'm no longer on FB.

It was great meeting you all (as many as I met - which I know was not everyone). You are truly a great group of guys and gals! Dave thanks for showing me the ropes for the parade. You were right we are on You Tube. Here's the link http://youtu.be/HfaQZlg49cg start the video at 16:20 and you will see Dave in the far lane and me in the center lane one car behind. Awesome time and I will do it again, thanks everyone (especially Dave and Nadine, Dan, Dave, Jeff x 2, John, Jim, ebo, Barb and Frank, Mark, and Barry) for making me feel welcome. I hope I didn't leave anyone off that I had the pleasure to meet. I told my wife Lori that meeting you all was truly what made Carlisle 2013 a event that I will cherish forever. Thanks all!!!

Glad that everyone made it home ok (for the most part.)
It was great seeing you all again.  Nice meeting some new peeps too!
Finally met Sarge (Ive seen him around but never actually spoke to him) nice to meet Mario, Dave (Dads2vette), Vinny, and to get to talk with Jeff again.

Had a blast with the usual suspects: Barb, Frank (Bonnie/Clyde), Bob, Tom, Pete, Jeff, Jim D, Dave and Nadine, Mark and Shirley, Barry and Jackie, Al and Lori (sorry about the hotel),  Kathy (wish I could have talked to you more Unhappy), Jim (riddj), Dave Wright,  Dave & Mary, Rodney and Dan (sorry about the car, man Cry)
And to the people I didn't get a chance to meet: Hopefully next time!

As usual, Dave wright was a great houseguest.  My cat approves.

I really enjoy hanging out with everyone.
Who knows?  Maybe one of these days I will "man up" and be brave enough to actually drive my car out of town  to another get-together besides CAC.  Im sure every piece will fall off my car if I attempt it though.  We'll see....

Jeff

It certainly was my extreme pleasure meeting you "Colonel Vinnie". We have a few things in common...Air Force, Planes, and 74 Corvettes Exclamation Hope you will be a regular attendee at our get togethers in the future.
