Ok Bensen Days is happening April 7-10 2021. Finally some good news for 2021, please let everyone you know in the gyro community and aviation enthusiasts that the event is on. Go to the website and get your camping spot reserved. www.bensendays.com

Admission is $5 a day. So if you get a stimulus check you could easily bring 100 people with you. 😎
So who is going this year and enjoying the nice Florida weather?3A92BD9D-39AE-49A8-BA78-41C54121FF15.jpeg

Whoa. Here it is Feb 13 & we're still here. This forum was set to implode 2/12... that thread is closed, the forum is still up and running, and now Bensen Days is planning to go.

Just woke up in an alternative parallel membrane universe.

Again.

Checked on my rental car today. I will be leaving Santa Maria CA Saturday morning, and hoping to make it to Van Horn, TX Saturday night, then onto Mobile, AL Sunday night. Monday I hope to visit the Naval Air Museum in Pensacola and then on to the Tallahassee automobile Museum Tuesday Morning. If I tear myself away soon enough on to Don Gartlits Museum of Drag Racing in Ocala and then on to Wauchula, Fl. I look forward to the journey and seeing old friends and making new friends.

Will certainly miss being there. Had hoped to be in Tampa with my son and Granddaughters but still in UK. We were released from primary country-wide lock-down yesterday, but sadly still a travel ban between UK and US in force.

Tommy Milton has indicated he may be getting down. Denis is getting ready and will be down there with his trailer, new tow truck, his Razor Blades, his Black, my Blue and a stack of other goodies he makes.

Hope everyone has a great time, the ‘Morons’ are the good hosts they have always been, and it’s the superb show its been for years.

I am in Pensacola. Naval Air Museum closed. I am staying with retired Navy Commander and he was unable to gain access with his father. Tx.

Thank you; that changes things for me. I would have been so disappointed.

I made it to Van Horn, Texas; 1,100 statute miles from home in Nipomo, CA. Hope to make it to Mobile tomorrow and then Monday visit the Tallahassee Automobile Museum and then on to a visit to the Don Garlits drag racing museum in Ocala and the Florida Air Museum in Lake Land before landing in Wauchula Tuesday evening. The Naval Air Museum appears to be closed due to me without a DOD ID card. Look forward to see you all there.

First. day - Paris TX, Day 2 got to 90 minutes N of Mobile ... so it was huge day TODAY and I WAS so close - I did the last hour in the dark (I HATE NIGHT DRIVING!)... but at least the #64 Bradenton-Ona is brand new beautiful road with great reflectors & lane markings!
I'M HERE! ...Ready to unload in the morning! Looks like 8 or more campers already plugged in!
