Checking back in..

I drove almost all day on Tuesday making it from Overland Park to Terre Haute, Indiana.  I had hoped to get farther, but there was a big accident on the interstate where two trucks had collided..  It took 2 hours to go 7 miles, so I just quit for the night..  I had lost the hour going into Eastern time zone, as well...  It was instantly late..

On Wednesday I buzzed thru Indianapolis before 11 AM, so traffic was about average..  But no big delays, so 8 of us met at Hooters for lunch in Dayton..   We spent the afternoon in the Air Force Museum...

That evening was Friendly's Ice Cream Parlor where I had a large sugar free sundae..  Well the Ice Cream was free, but the chocolate sauce and brownie... not so much...

The next day was off to the show, where things become a blur...  Some of our guys buy out used public service Motorola Radios....handhelds and mobiles..  Repeaters and duplexer cavities...   Business is brisk...

I only had an old frequency counter, which was sold the first day for minimal money, but it mostly paid for my share of the fleamarket spot...  Otherwise you wander the grounds looking at all manner of used stuff...  I am trying to be good and not bring home a lot of old things that will just sit around............

Its early in the morning as I am writing this, so I need to get ready for a big Saturday at the show...  We'll see what today brings...  LOL

  1. I don't dare show this post to Jim. Friendly's is his favorite place in the whole world. When we were dating, we'd go out to dinner and then we always had to stop at Friendly's so Jim could get a Jim Dandy. Glad you're having a good time.

  2. Thanks for checking in, Rod, and letting us know how your doing. By the sounds of it, Hooters and Friendly's, you are really living it up there in Indiana!

  3. Don't you just love Flea market/garage/tag/yard sales (all lumped into one as far as I'm concerned)
    I just look at all the stuff I'd only later have to try and figure out how to be rid of. Trying to keep it to a minimum is the challenge. Good on ya that you resisted that temptation.

  4. Hm.. that first sentence was supposed to be a question. Please feel free to inflect your voice there..

  5. The flea market is awesome there, I hope you took some pictures! I had to hold back big time the last time we were there, the temptation to buy is almost overwhelming! The museum is something else as well!
