A group of us from the MLM will be going East Friday, and arriving Friday evening. We will be there thru Sunday noon. If you set something up, let me know.

Right now Im sitting and watching Maggie the Clown Show. The food lines are huge, and all of the seats at the tables are taken. At least I can sit a while here. This show is just amazing. Its only noon and Im running on E but I have to keep going. Wish me luck.

Saturday several RR-Line members got together at the Hub Division's layout in the Better Living Center:



I was really bright for the show as a courtesy to family members. Dave Emery is to my left, Pete Magoun at extreme right. IIRC the two gentlemen in the middle came from Ontario, but I didn't note their names. Pete?

Good bet, Jim!

Nice chat, too.... Thanks, Guys!

James, that garment would be perfect out here for those who insist on running, walking the dog or cycling wearing fashionable black, or worse, their cammo togs, all of which blend them into the scenery and make things unsafe for everybody. You could see that thing from the other side ofthe BLC!

And all of the gorgeous weather apparently wrought the dreaded result this year, too... ARS says the gate was 17,154, and adding in exhibitors, vendors, friends of the photographer, hangers-on and such, the total was 21,004.

In really good weather, folks head for Vermont to ski, and the weather was fabulous....

I went Sunday and the crowds were definitely smaller. Nice weather means the parking lot is a giant mud pit.........

Great photo gents! Agreed, a bit of powder on my forehead would reduce the shine! That day, two things could be seen from the ISS, the Great Wall of China and my forehead. LOL.

We had a great chat with everyone. Thoroughly enjoyed the show. Picked up a few items.

As is typical on the return home, driving north from Syracuse, on I-81, encountered whiteout conditions through the Watertown area, then cleared up about ten miles or so before 1000 Islands Bridge.
