But be aware, you will see many things you want! And when you see "the gun" you just need to own, the next booth's display of guns will question that thought!
^^^This. (And Rusty, hopefully I get to at least say hi to you and to Matt again this year, if not grab a burger or something with you guys while there.)
Lewisburg is the place to go when you're not sure what you want to do exactly. You'll get to see so much stuff it'll make your head spin, and plan to spend the day, because the builders are all friendly and more than willing to talk and help you understand the stuff you're looking at.
The first time I went, I was honestly underwhelmed but the size, thinking, "Huh, this is it?"
Then I got to talking to people and looking at what was there and realized that, unlike a general "outdoors show" where I might want to talk to someone at one booth in ten, or maybe 20, that I walk by....at Lewisburg, you'll see something of interest at EVERY booth.
I can easily spend a day there. Easily.
