Not much pillow time!

We seem to get up before we go to bed when we are here in Dayton. If we didn't need a shower and such, it almost seems that renting a room to sleep in is not necessary.

We were 'up and at them' by 6 AM this morning and were on the road to Lima, Ohio before 8. The used and military surplus radio store has changed little since we were there a year ago. That is the way with these places, you can watch paint dry. They are timeless.

In the middle of the old radio store experience, Allen said to me "Do you want to go down and see the Harley shop?" So off we went. This is the typical newer motorcycle store with all the new bikes. But the clothes and accessories are where they make their real money. And we left some of ours there too.

Once back in Dayton, we hitched the trailer back onto the truck and took it out to the flea market. This is set up day, and we always wander around and see what kind of trouble we can stir up. We sold some stuff right off the bat that will help one of our members pay his bills. But then he came dragging a bunch of different items to take their place for the trip home. We just trade stuff with the other hams. Its not about making money!

Tonight some of us went to the Collins hospitality room, while others went back to Bob Evans across from the hotel. Later, we all ended up in one of the rooms, for a coupla beers and planning for the day tomorrow.

It's 10:45 PM and we have to be up at 5 AM so I need to have 'some' pillow time!
