    I appreciate it, but unless I find there is a good selection of Soviet/Warsaw Pact items being offered, I am unlikely to make the trip!

    However, if you do go I'd be grateful for any intel you might be able to provide!

    Cheers! M2

    Al Stewart had a lot of historical references in his music. Interesting...

    The lyrics are worth looking up if you're not familiar with the song. My favorite line is, "the flames of the Tigers are lighting the way to Berlin." Paints a vivid mental image for me.

    Well, it looks like the next one is 19-20 May, the folks that usually attend the one in Schertz claim it's worth the drive. It'll be an early morning, but hopefully the 500-mile round-trip will be worth the trouble. We'll definitely be taking the Toyota and not the Jeep! ;)

    I hope it's worth the trip for you. I haven't been to that show, but the last run of the mill gun show I went to in Cleburne was a last minute decision because I was there in town to pick up something else. There was a bigger show going on up in the big city close by, so many vendors were there instead. There were probably a dozen tables there at the show and about 4 folks walking around looking when I was there.

    That was by far the worst show I've seen in Cleburne.

    This isn't a gun show, in fact firearms and ammo are not allowed. It is a history/militaria collectors show held once a year. There is a similar show in Schertz that I have found numerous items at, I may just drive up and check it out.

    What's all included in a "history/militaria" show? I've never been to one of these shows but am curious to know.

    Pretty much a flea market for militaria/war-related items, the majority of which centers on WWII although that is not really the focus of my collection (I'm a Cold War/Soviet/Warsaw Pact guy) but I still find stuff on occasion.

    There's a little more info on their website...

    Let me know if you're going, I was actually researching Marriotts nearby and the closest one that'
    s not in DFW (would rather avoid that area) is in Waxahachie. Not sure if we're going to drive up the day of or the night before, but as I have a quarter million points with Marriott, if the latter it's where we'll most likely stay...

    Cheers! M2
