Getting a medal means two things:

1. Someone saw you do it.

2. You didn't tick off the approval chain.

This will be my first Show of Shows and to say I am looking foreward to going is an understatement. I am looking foreward to meeting lot of new faces as I don't really attend a lot of shows.

Just reserved a room by the airport for all 3 nights with priceline and got a great deal. Worth a look if you haven't made reservations.

Just booked the airline tickets and the hotel is squared away, this will be my 1st SOS.

Every military collector should try to make at least one pilgrimage to the SOS in their lifetime. Make sure you bring plenty of money and be prepared to be overwhelmed by the size of the venue, the quantity and quality of items be sold and the prices.

Looks like I can make either Thursday or Friday. Any recommendations? I haven't been there in many, many years.

My recommendation is to buy what you want when you first see it. You will never be able to find it again after walking away. Too many tables is a nice problem to have.

Sparty,

Now you need to get the USMF logo on the back...

 

Beast,

Thursday is only a half day if you are a member as dealer set up is in the morning. It is the best day to get out as the rarer items tend to get picked up fast. There are still plenty of finds on Friday as well and you get a full day. There will be dealers still arriving on Friday so there are still fresh finds to be had.

Four weeks from now the SoS doors will be open for dealer setup!!!!

 

Three weeks and 6 days before the zotig111, sgtdorango, and 1canpara pre-show helmet swap meet. Hopefully the other suspects will make it as well (USMCRecon, Bugme, Just-a-good-ole-boy, 37th guy, etc).

The only problem with the next four weeks is that everyone starts to sell good things to raise cash for the show. By the time the show rolls around, I'll be broke! :)

Oh, and since, "Sparty On" wanted to get all fancy with his custom T-shirt, I guess I'll be wearing one of my Army or Marine Veterans Vests! post-33000-0-67653700-1391111712.jpg

I've seen several nice helmets being sold recently, too.

You know...every year this gets so much hype, every year I regret not being able to go, until every year you guys report back that the EGA pickings are slim, prices are high, and reproduction crap is everywhere. Not sure if you

 

What I have gathered over the years, however, is stuff tends to go cheap online during that weekend so, since the Marine Corps once again has plans for me that weekend...all of you, go, go, goooooo....and stay off the Internet on your dang smart phones while you're there...leave the auctions to the rest of us
