    I know Eastman shows are taboo on here, but I was just curious if the one in Macon this weekend is worth going? I got a few good deals at the one in Savannah a while back from some private sellers. So I was wondering if anyone has had luck at the Macon one or is it bad since it is closer to Atlanta?

    There is a company down in Macon that does a fantastic job of stock reproduction that in itself would be worth the ride for me

    Same thing everytime, beating a dead horse. Ppl will say don't go to shows, and others say go.

    I'm going, it gives me a chance to look at stuff I don't own yet, search for deals, and it gets me out of the house to spend time doing something that I enjoy.

    Everyone else can stay home--more for me.

    That’s what I thought. I’m only 1.5 hrs away so I figure it would just be entertainment to go.

    That being said, Macon can be a small show. If you're gonna drive that far, you may look into other shows coming up. I'm less than 30 minutes away, so it's not a big deal to me.

    @palmettomoon thoughts?

    I'll probably zip down Sunday afternoon for a look around.

    I wouldn't drive to Macon to watch an ant eat a bale of hay and I live in Macon.

    After you drive to Macon and check out the show be sure to drive a little to Warner Robins and check out Chuck's.

    :rolleyes:
