    Always good to get to visit with another member. Ken (Sir_Prize) dropped by today on his way back home. We were supposed to meet up about a year or so ago but I was having some logging done and monsoonal rains had my road wiped out. :( No such problem this time though! :D We got a bite to eat out on the deck of Anthony's Resturant across the street from the depot, then walked over and checked out the train store and the Lionel layout and museum before heading for the house. Here is a picture of Ken taking a pic of the layout :) . Ken should have some good pics to post when he gets back home. He had also visited with Ray Metivier (hoped I spelled that right) and had some real nice pics of his fantastic layout! BTW please ignore the mess behind Ken! :D :rolleyes: :D

    The concept of the Nantahala Midland as a tourist attraction, is one not without due merit. If life takes me back to that part of the world, I'd happily pay another visit. I hope Ken enjoyed his trip there as much as I did mine.

    It was a VERY nice time. I got home at around 1:30AM.
    Unfortunately, the Mountain Dew Live Wire (the Orange flaver)
    and the Coffee Cake I got at Exit 11 in Georgia was still kick'n
    didn't get to sleep til 4am. :eek:
    It was cool to visit with Mike. He passed something along to me
    that was a inspiration. It was a boxcar from his RR, which has me
    wanting to pass along one from my line. Which means I gotta get
    off my duff and make some.;)
    Next time 'round I"m gonna see about someplace to stay up there,
    so I can spend a few days sightseeing up them parts.
    Very pretty area.
    :thumb: :wave: :D

    By the way... Did you let the neighbors cat back outta your room?
    You should try to get it opening the sliding screen door on video.
    Could get some money from like shows REAL TV, or if America's
    Funniest Home Videos is still on.:thumb:

    Nice picture. I don't see a messy work area there, heck you should see mine!!! I don't think mine would be featured in Better Homes and Gardens! Glad you both had a great time.

    Pete if you ever get back this way by all means please drop in! :thumb: Hopefully the weather will be a little better next time! :D Ken I hope you can spend some more time sightseeing the next time you come thru here. The cat is sawing logs on my bed right now. She can't go outside as there is a light rain falling and her highness might melt if she got wet! :rolleyes: :D Shamus you next to visit????????? :)

    To all who don't see the mess :) THANK YOU! :wave:

    If I had the means I'd swing by Woodie.
    Want to see some of those Road Trains, and the reefs, and the
    cars from US dealers that don't look like the ones here, and ride
    the trams, and see the Opera house, and...

    Nothing personal, but it is a known fact that a person, walking from the continental U. S., to Australia, will drown before they get half way.:D :D :D ;)
