    The Black Hills show is coming up next month on September 29 &30 2018 in Rapid city SD. This will be my first year attending this show so will try to take some photos for posting the month after. Have attended the NAME show for a lot of years and will attend next year's 30 th. Won't attend the Cabin Fever show in February in mid PA as I am too old and crotchety to put up with any more winter weather in my lifetime. Wish they would consider changing to a better time of year for us older gen members.

    Isn't it called Cabin Fever specifically as it's a mid winter show to get you out of the 'Cabin' you've been cooped up in because of the bad weather? That was my understanding of the term anyway...

    Having lived in Maine for 7 plus years I am quite familiar with the term "CABIN FEVER" If you wish to get out in snowy and icy weather in mid PA that is your choice. go for it! I like a little better weather for air and auto travel, just part of getting older I guess.

    Can't make it as the Zanesville , Ohio show is the same day and it's 12 hours closer. You guys have a great day and post up pictures.

    I would love to - I love the cold and hate the heat. But unfortunately it's a bit far for me to travel from down here in Australia - perhaps they could move it a bit closer to me...

    I had the opportunity to visit the Black Hills show this past Saturday. Great show with a lot of very well built engines and equipment. I talked to a lot very nice people. Looking forward to attending again.
