Portland Indiana swap meet in may 2015
« on: January 05, 2015, 08:28:21 PM »
looks like the swap meet may be out this year for the first time in over 20 years.......the hotel has changed the rules and want the full amount in advance with out a refund possible.. no ones knows 5 months in advance what will happen,, at almost $200.00 per night for 4 nights I am not will to gamble.. being a small isolated town, there are few choices to make. all involve at least an hour drive both ways each day... plus a 1200 mile drive round trip from home... sometimes you do not get enough beer for your money,,this just may be the perfect example...Also had some minor health problems this year and I might be interested in sell my 8 hp GM and Petter 3 1/2 hp ..sid

Wow 200 dollars a night! That must be top of the line place do they at least put a chocolate on your pillow?
I was thinking about making the trip for the engine show this year. I have never been and it's about 600 miles one way for me. I am thinking about driving my RV can you camp on the sight? Or close by?

no problem camping. I tent camped for years but the mud and cold finally got me.the reason it is so high is they raised the room price this year,also they have a 12% tax that week plus state tax. runs a little under $200.00, but depending on the room I think it could top that..sid
