    <font color=blue>Every fall theres a huge truck show in Wildwood NJ called Thunder on the Beach. This year its september 29 - october 2. I have been to the past two shows and its a lot of fun. They have a show on the beach during the day, crawl-offs, monster truck racing on the beach, sand drags, and a burnout contest on saturday night. Getting a hotel is easy because Wildwood is a summer vacation town and after Labor Day it's empty. Anyone planning on going? Here's some coverage from last year

    Hey biggray71 I am in MD. I normally go to the show in Carlisle(sp?) PA. I have classes during most of those days+ I can t miss an of my clinicals this semester. I can go one of the days you are there. Drop an E-mail or something we can work it out. I am tired of "accidently" driving to South Streets Philly. to take a break.

    <font color=blue>They pack the sand down to prevent people from getting stuck. Stock j**ps go on it without problems. What kind of info do you need?</font color=blue>

    <font color=blue>I have been informed that there will be no truckshow portion at this year's event. I was told that they had problems with drunken 4x4 guys fighting with drunken lowrider truck guys, so they canceled the truckshow portion and now its just monster trucks. This leaves me with tickets to an event that happens this weekend 173 miles away, and I'm not driving that far to watch just the monster trucks! They're cool, but the show was the best part. I heard that the may truckshow is still on and next year it'll be in late august instead of october but dont ask me how they plan on that, Wildwood is packed with tourists all summer. </font color=blue>
