Went to Orlando today and wasn't really looking because it was only an hour. But saw Titan & Russell.

Had a fun trip back east, here are my road pics.

Met with several people from the forum, attended a few auctions, a few antique shops and a few watch shops. Made some good buys.

Went the NAWCC and had the worst experience of my life. Short story, the lady told me copier was out as well as scanner, and that I would need to use my cell phone to make copies. I explained that I gave them advance warning I was coming and this
was completely unprofessional. So I went and bought copier and donated it to the library. The next day towards the end of the day, an employee came into the library and used the broken copier in front of me. I was fuming, just plain ole bizarre.

Called a few board member and gave them a piece of my mind. The NAWCC is not what it used to be.

You got some great ones! This was my old stomping grounds before retiring. We lived in Waukesha and I'm sure you saw the Oconomowoc exit, which is where I worked.

Wow, you got a lot! I’d be all butterfingers. I nearly crashed my car trying to get a photo of a sign that read “Otis” and I still didn’t get the photo.

Yeah, you need to have a passenger take the pics.

Looks like you pretty much covered New England; CT, MA, RI, ME.
Not sure I noticed VT or NH though.
How did you find traffic flow compare to CA?

Excellent idea. You'll have to work on the geometrics. Square should be easy. Cushion, maybe a furniture billboard. Barrel, barrel will be tough. Oval very tough. Tonneau...that will be the coup de grace.
