It was around 1997, I had been doing Carlisle/Hershey for about two years. I pulled in Carlisle early Monday morning, the field was basically empty. I placed my trailer, disconnected it and then took a drive around the mostly empty fairgrounds.
Before going I spent just about every cent I had getting my ECOs ready to sell, so when I got there I had very little in my pocket to spend on much more than the next meal. My buying usually started after my first sale.
Driving around I spotted a Islander, still in its crate, leaning against a trailer. I asked the price, $850.00. By the time I came up with the money it as long gone.
Oh for the good old days.
