Hi from Adelaide, Sth Aust.

Hi FJ folk, my first post in your forum and have been enjoying reading and learning from the experiences of so many of our FJ brothers and sisters both here and home in Oz. I have had my 2013 "shop truck" for about 10 months now and have definitely got the bug.

I would some advise or suggestions which might be a little off topic if I can.

I am booked to be in Vegas the first week in May 2015 for the NAPA trade expo and want to extend the trip a week or so while I'm there. I wanted to tie it in with either a street rod event or something cool to see or do FJ style, timing won't be right for the summit sadly. I need to make a decision very quickly as the booking agent is now on my case. Any recommendations please?
Previous trips have revolved around the cities LA, LV, SF, NY, New Orleans and would love to see something / somewhere new.

Re: Hi from Adelaide, Sth Aust.

Welcome!

You might send Vegas_Nick a PM. They have different runs scheduled quite often to Ghost Towns and scenic sights or meets/shows they attend as an FJ group.

@Vegas_Nick would be the go to - and there seems to be a pretty good FJ group in vegas.

Re: Hi from Adelaide, Sth Aust.

Everyone beat me to the point. Vegas Nick would be ideal if you planned on staying in the Vegas area. Outside of that- you might just see who has any events planned in that period and then cater your second week to that rather than the other way around
