Sam, It's good hearing from you. I am having so much trouble with RCU lately I don't know if it's from a lack of you posting or RCU in it's death throws. Are you still actively building? Dan.

Dan,
As Jeff said, I've been playing with my trains.
I've got plenty of planes to fly so no big deal on not building this winter (1st time in 15 years).
Been painting some and cleaning up the layout for a recent open house for local NMRA members.

Jeff:
Sounds good.

Its hard for most of us to be in two places at the same time. But I bet Sam can do it on the 11-13 of August. Owatonna and Hagerstown at the same time. He MUST be twins!

Hey, Sam

Good to see you're still ticking!

Maybe we'll all be running trains soon! They do have a certain magnetism, but none of the adrenalin.

Missed you at NAMFI and FDL last year, or maybe the heat at FDL just melted my brain and I forgot!

Hope to see you this year

Mark

Hi Sam,

We have 2 events that you might enjoy.... The Warbird Festival is a conflict for you on June 11th but it looks like August 27th for our Flying Circus is an open date. You can see lots of event info in this post with links.

Link to Event Info

You've got a full plate !! Hope to see you sometime this summer.

Joe

Sam if you got two 30 year old twins you would need a larger trailer and two more cots. Good luck selling that one in. On second hand maybe Russian brides.com?

Hey Sam,

I see you are into trains also. So if you come to our event in Monticello there is also a Train Museum on location just as you are entering onto the road to get to our field.

I think they will be having something going on there the same weekend so you could go visit that also.

Sam, I hope someday I will be able to make even half of those events in one year. I can't imagine how many friends you make getting around to so many events. Hope to see you at a couple at least.

April 1, Toledo.
Miles: 180

Got there early Friday morning. As usual, lots of vendors showing off their new stuff.
I only got two Xoar 3-blade 'back up' props for the B-25, two Mejzlik 3-blade props for the yellow P-38 and some new spinners from tru-turn for the B-25.
Mostly up there to socialize.

Mike, moi, Carl and Dave.


Darrell and Tim from Giant Sierra.



Being early Friday, all contest models were not on display.
A few tugs.


Ken and owner of National balsa:


Ross and Andy


A moki in this display model



Jim from one of my local clubs:
