We're visiting family next week... we'll be spending the beginning of the week visiting my in-laws in the Poconos (specifically the town of Mt. Pocono) and the end of the week with my parents on Long Island (specifically Huntington). Anybody know of slot car stores or hobby shops or stuff going on in those areas? I love having an excuse to bring my pit box on vacation with us... :D

hmmm... I've seen stuff on the Net about PRR, but they're in upstate NY, aren't they? There's no link on the site for directions, and I think they're in the town of Horseheads...

I'd like to go there, I've heard there's TONS of Tjet stuff going on there, but I think it's a little too far off my route for this trip...

Rick since we've met in person I feel confident in telling you if you would like your invited to GOOSE's Basement for a few laps. In a poorly lit basement it's fun to try and outrun two trains on a good sized Tyco track. I have 8 road and rail crossings with two locomotives running. There is also a elivated section just after one of the rail crossings and around a bend. You have to be a good driver to make it before the train and up the hill without stalling a T Jet. Maybe I can get another "freind" to come over and race. CHET???
