We went back to Coolspring in the fall of 2000. This time the weather was cooperative and the crowd turnout was exceptional. Once again, Doug, our son-in-law made the trip with us. Now as old-hands at Coolspring, we set-up and renewed old friendships. Our set-up looks mach the same as in the spring:This time we brought our engine on a newly purchased trailer, allowing the cap to remain on the truck. This was a great improvement over hauling everything in the pickup. It also afforded a lot of room to haul NEW STUFF back home !!!

 My wife, Sandra, and the dog, Becky were made comfortable with a sunshade and a cooler, while the ladies in the background sell cookies and pies.
