    Well at least from one perspective. I've been waiting for 362 days since last year for this. I already have had a call from my Ohio buddy that he was on the road and will be in Central City tomorrow. Can't wait to see everyone. I have another 6 hours or so before I can get on the road. The wife has a girlie thing to do but I am happy to have her come along. Alamosa CO about 1:30 or 2:00 tomorrow morning. Pull into the narrow gauge railroad yard and nap to the smell of coal smoke. I'll try to have lots of photos. I think I'm ready, just need the wife and dog. Hang on, here we go... almost

    Bobby, good to hear from you. I'm the only representative from NM. You could have bought my Roadster. Made it to Antonio about 1:15 this morning. IMG_20170913_062702719.jpg

    A great place to be. Got to hear the chuff, chuff of the locomotives as the yard crew staged for today's trips. A rolling Museum. IMG_20170913_062640438.jpg IMG_20170913_062407438.jpg IMG_20170913_062335071.jpg IMG_20170913_062149764.jpg

    We appreciate your invitation, on US 285 up the hill to Leadville where I had a great grandfather who was a saloon keeper. He died of consumption. Got to go say HI to him.
