    Is the show right at the memorial? I need a break and may make the run down.

    Yes, it is in the park right next to the battleship. I've been several times as a spectator. Hope to make it next week.

    Trying to make arrangements. Might can drive down early Saturday and spend the night nearby at local hotel. Long one day drive, it is one on my bucket list so this year or one soon.

    Last question is the show on the grass or the parking lot and can I assume there is plenty of room for the Dually and Trailer?

      Show is on grass. Plenty of room for trucks towing trailers. Always several there with enclosed trailers.

        To far and getting through the interstates around Atlanta is to risky. My company provided car takes a beating around here. Never mind trying to find non-ethanol along the way.

        Drove mine from Al to Carlise 2100 miles round trip and drive to Cruizin Coast every year. I don't own a trailer, well that is not entirely true I do have trailers to haul dozier and trackhoe because they may chew up the pavement

        I do not disagree as it is a car. However it cost lots of $ to get it where it is and the Dually is the most comfortable drive I have. The old Barracuda is fun but not to comfy for that distance. It is cheaper to haul it that distance than drive it and much more comfortable!

        I know what you are talking about being cheaper. I drove my GTS with 499" to Cruizing Coast 3 years ago and when I got to Gulfport I was having some electrical problems before I completely rewired it. I turned around and drove back home and got the "decoy" and the GTS costs me $200 gas that one trip. I usually drive the "decoy" on longer trips and it is a good ride. I always wanted to go to Battleship but it conflicts with a gathering I attend each year. Have fun
