Thanks for the welcome, neelyrc. I've been away from the forum since mid-September, but will happily post pix and, of course, there is a story of the hunt.

Frank,


How is the planning going the Pagodafest front.  Any dates known at this point.


For those travelling from a long way afar, to get frequent flyer seats bookings often are needed well in advance. In my case Qantas has opened its bookings after it all being shut off for nearly twenty months of lockdown.

Hi Garry,

Will you be traveling alone or with Kate? Should you be traveling alone I would br happy to pick you up at the airport and take you back there after the event in case you like to rent a car and spend some more time in the area. Let me know.

Rolf Dieter,


Thanks for the kind offer but Kate is suggesting that after the event we drive the east coast and southern loop back to LA for a month or two. With Covid now in the mix she doesn’t want me there on my own.


I will not be bringing my Pagoda this time as its too late already to arrange without a known date.  Export and import certificates takes 3-4 months, prep of the vehicle will be one or more months and shipping at best will be 3 months.


Thats also the problem with Qantas FF that by Xmas it will be too late to get a seat or two if i dont book soon as they only allocate limited seats to FF and they open nine months before and are soon gone.

A formal announcement for PagodaFest 2022 will be coming in January. What I can tell you all is that the dates will be October 7-9, 2022 at the Oak Brook Hyatt just 30 minutes west of downtown Chicago.

Thanks Franks for dates, gives me something to work to at least for airfare bookings which is the critical one.

I doubt I would be able to attend unless we have a late fall and who could predict that right now? We start soy bean harvest the first part of October and that always comes first. Maybe next time.
