Don't miss out on all this fun.  Plan your trip to Hershey now.  Invasion
2004 in coming up fast.  BTW, got our first Invader from Florida confirmed
yesterday.  I will be adding him to the list and map in the next couple of
days.  Only unrepresented part of the country left is the desert
SouthWest........by August the Pennsylvania salt with be washed away and we
will be at least several weeks from first snow fall. <G>  Bring out those
rust free desert cars.
