Next week is the Mid-America Trucking Show. As of this writing, it looks like we'll be going. We always leave it until the last minute, but make plans as if we'll be there - rent cars, make dinner reservations, secure hotel rooms, etc. if needed.
It's three days of seeing truck equipment, friends old and new, celebrities signing autographs, and collecting all kinds of free swag. This year we have a mission to research a few things so I'll be circling vendors in the directory whose booths we'll be stopping at, we're going to visit the granddaughter of one of my mom's friends who happens to be working the Go Capitol booth, and we'll be visiting the ARI booth to get ideas for the newer, bigger sleeper that's in our future.
Also on the itinerary is hooking up with the NYC Truckers to hit some of the fine dining spots in Louisville. We've found a few that interest us already - Corbett's, Hillbilly Tea, Garage Bar, and Proof on Main to start.
And, I'm hoping to catch Brad James, the singing trucker who will be performing in the parking area reserved for those of us attending the show.
I can't wait. I'm looking forward to it all!
