Spending a Saturday Morning at Sled Fest

We once again made the road trip to Duncannon, PA for Sled Fest.  This show has grown to capacity in just a few short years. It is held near the Old Sled Works which was the home to the Lightning Guider manufacturing facility. The show is opened to all pre '72 vehicles but if you want a parking spot plan on being there early. The Hooligans Car Club does a good job of parking cars to maximize the use of the small lot.

All kinds of vehicles from drivers to hot rods turn up to this show. Even I few high-end customs can often be found on the lot.

A sizable group of trucks also attend the show. I just love big fenders. Don't you?

Don't forget to shop The Old Sled Works while attending the show. This antique and craft market is located in the former Standard Novelty Works plant. The plant made Lightning Guider sleds from 1904 until 1988. You can find all sorts of neat stuff in this place.

Check out the vintage penny arcade! You can actually play the games here. The machines are all pre-Pacman.

While waiting to checkout you can catch some old shows on the vintage black and white TVs near the register. I was entertained by the Three Stooges as my wife paid for her many purchases.

Sled Fest is a great little show which keeps us coming back. Parking is tough but it is worth getting up early to enjoy the show. Check out more of our photos over on our photo site: BG Customs Photography.

NCL Norwegian Pearl Cruise to Alaska - The Haven Courtyard

If you ever have a chance to sail to Alaska, do it! If you can save up a little more to be able to stay in The Haven Courtyard on Norwegian Cruise Lines, do it! For our anniversary Peg and I decided we would take our first cruise to Alaska. NCL sales called us, last minute, and offered us a deal to upgrade to a penthouse in The Haven Courtyard aboard the Norwegian Pearl. We did and it was fantastic! The Bird of Paradise Courtyard Suite Room 14014 (an S5 level penthouse suite) would be our home for the seven day cruise which started in Seattle, Washington.


Photos from Craig Naff's Hotrod Body Shop with Ron Covell

It's not often that you get the chance to hang out with one of the world's best hotrod metal shapers, Craig Naff. Add to that the fact that Ron Covell, a fantastic metal fabricator and instructor, would be teaching a class in Craig's shop and you have the potential for a fantastic Saturday. I made the drive over to Craig's shop on the outskirts of Woodstock, VA early in the morning using Ron Covell's Basic Metal Shaping class as an excuse to get out of the house.
