Arrived home from Toledo safe and sound on Monday evening. Barely. You may have heard the expression that flying is hours of boredom punctuated by moments of sheer terror. Driving can be like that too.

We were coming across Interstate 84 in New York state when we got trapped in the passing lane by three ENORMOUS oversize trucks traveling nose to tail. I don't know if something fell of one of the rigs or perhaps it hit a chunk of metal and kicked it into our lane but in a heartbeat we had a blown tire on the right rear of the van. Terri was driving and did a masterful job of keeping the van under control and getting us off safely to the side. We called AAA (roadside service) and while waiting for him to arrive I couldn't stand it and had the tire changed by the time he arrived. But it wasn't a fools errand for him as the were at least two and maybe as many a four other disabled vehicles, victims of the same chunk of debris.

We found a Sears store of the next exit and in less than an hour had a new tire mounted and were on our way again.

I had a great show!! Met many fellows from a variety of news groups and BBSs. So nice to put faces to names the we see on the web.

Anyway, on to the pictures. The still photos are up on pages and the video clips will be coming along soon. http://neme-s.org/NAMES_2007/NAMES_2007.htm

Also to come are photos of the Armington and Syms machine shop at Greenfield Village at The Henry Ford, photos from the Air Zoo Aviation museum in Kalamazoo Michigan and photos from Steamtown in Pennsylvania.
