I am.....I'll be the guy sitting at the MEWSIG table if we have one, or walking around with a Tacoma Green Dragons Shirt and ball cap hoping we are getting photo coverage of all the GREAT happenings.

I'll be there trying not to spend my kid's college tuition while I help with the photo coverage. It's gonna be a blast!!

A note to everybody driving in from east of Omaha:

 

I-29 is still closed! I-80 is open but a trucker friend says it jammed with all the diversion traffic.

 

Coming up from Oklahoma and Texas, he recommended going north on I-135 to Salina then north on US81 to I-80... he says less traffic than US75 from Manhattan to Lincoln, plus US81 is 4-lane "most of the way". (I thought it was all of the way, but there might be construction)

 

Check with Iowa Dept of Trans and Nebraska Dept of Roads before you leave to find the best route.

I'm flying in Wed afternoon, and Eppley is still opened. A local club member works in the HQ bldg at Delta and says they have contingency plans to land in Lincoln and bus people to Omaha if the river flooding affects the airport there. Don't know about other airlines, but they are probably planning the same workarounds.

:smiley29: Myself and 3 others will be coming in on Wednesday afternoon from the Pacific Northwest. Oddly enough, our flight out of Seattle goes to Phoenix (shucks, missed it by a year :smiley17: ) where we change planes for the second leg to Omaha. That's over 5 hours in the air!

My flight gets to OMA at 1630 on Wednesday. I'm willing to split the van ride so we can all save a few bucks for more models!

Mark,

Sadly that's the other R & J company. Rich and Joy are staying home this year. The last Omaha Nats in 1994 Rich and I drove out from the SF bay area in his Ford Explorer stuffed with his vendor goodies. Driving through Nebraska was a trip....mile after mile of nothin' but corn fields!!!

See ya in 2 weeks,

Mark
