Johnathon meeting Rick "Cletus" Hurst for the first time. This came after Dad stood in line for him for about and hour or longer, while we waited off to the side of the booth!!
Next he met Stella Parton who played a female officer on the show.
Outside, while checking out the cars we ran across Russell Solberg one of the original stuntmen from the show. Russell and several of the other stuntmen we getting the ramp ready for the General Lee jump.
Before leaving home we decided to make Johnathon a wagon to ride in incase he got tired. We painted it orange and had a friend to make the numbers for us then we added the flags in the side rails. Then at the last minute we decided to get the cast to sign the wagon. You can see some of the autographs on the back. Right now we have everyone except Daisy and Luke.
There were several different activities going on during the Dukesfest and one of these was wrestling. Here Johnathon is with Jerry "The King" Lawler.
During the singing session on stage, I was able to take several pictures from out seats on the fifth row. This was one of my favorites of John Schneider.
Boss Hogg's Cadillac -- because of this picture we now own a red one that will soon be painted white just for Johnathon.
After having his picture made in this Charger that was another item they had to have. This one was and newer model, but Perry did his research and found a 1969. So we have also bought Johnathon a 1969 Charger (or is it really for Dad). Johnathon and his Dad have a lot of projects to get started on, don't they!!!!
We started off our Dukesfest adventure by showing off a few of our pictures.
As soon as we got our car unloaded we parked it out in front of Cooter's. Then we took turns changing it out with our newly painted truck.
