I am packed as far as models and tools.  Also have 3 audiobooks loaded for the drive.  Just need to pack clothes and wake up in the morning.

Well...

The forcast has once again changed.  We now have a wintry mix predicted for tomorrow morning.  That put's me on standby; so, Cabin Fever is a no go.

For those attending- safe travels and enjoy the show.  Hopefully, I can make it next year.

Great setup day, Stan got us a whole row front and center in the main room. Everyone was checking out the other models today before the masses show up tomorrow, and stocking up from the vendors.
One of the guys from the group running the excavators and bulldozers on the dirt pile in the back hall was over looking at the Lombard, asked if he could bring over his 18 wheeler and flatbed trailer for some pictures with it. Of course! Turns out the Lombard was a perfect fit on the trailer, almost same scale, so he drove it back across the expo center to the dirt pile, got lots of double takes from people in the halls, but it couldn't make it up the dirt ramp onto the pile, even with some rc bulldozer help! I have some great video and photos, will post when I get back home to the PC.
Weather here was 50s yesterday, 60s today, its going to be a lot colder over the weekend but not bad here. Should be over by Monday for the trip home.


Oh, and I picked up a casting set for lil locos flame licker, since Jo wasn't there to crowd me out of line! Plus some tools, etc...

If Jo were there...I don't think you'd care about the castings.

I wouldn't.  :naughty:

Back from Cabin Fever.

I'll say right off I have no pictures. (Well I took some...but they are cruddy. See my thread on looking for a camera.)

I'm glad I went. It was good to see some of the fellows from the forum. Unfortunately I missed getting together with a few others.
I was happy to meet Chris Rueby in person. He probably thought I was nuts. I don't think he knew who I was when I came up to him and demanded "I want my cookie".

I got my cookie. Mint Chocolate Chip. And yes...it was good. But no Chris...it didn't turn me into a shop elf.

I saw Chris's Shay. That, or another version of Kozo's locomotives, is on my bucket list. I was surprised how large it is.
Still on the bucket list though.

Overall it looked like a good show with good attendance. It did seem like I was seeing all the same stuff as last year (should be expected) but the forum group had several new displays.

Most importantly...it did boost my motivation some. Let's hope it sticks.

I bought a few things but didn't find a casting that might make Jo's eyes turn towards me.

Hey Zee, I already KNEW you are nuts, but thats why you fit in with the rest of us!   :Lol:


The best part was the look on your face when I said we had eaten all the cookies already! Just joking, still have more! Was great to meet you in person.
