Probably not this year

by

I've got 2 meets this year, both small ones with the locals. One in Durango Colorado at a private track in August and the second one a little south of here, again at a private track but in September. The second one would likely conflict but the date hasn't been set yet.

You may have seen a picture of the second one in Live Steam - the photo of the 4 Shays lined up? Mine's the ugly one in the back.

Next year I've been asked to come to the ramble in Florida so I'm hoping to make it. Gotta get a new vehicle for that one, I'm carrying the loco in the back of my 87 Land Cruiser wagon right now and I don't think that I'm up to a cross country trip in that again (nor is my wallet - ouch). I'm hoping to make Train Mountain's triennial (assuming it'll happen) as well, so I may be all travelled out with those 3 trips.
