None of this would have been possible had I not been in contact with Richard P during my trip. Richard graciously introduced me to Andy in one of our emails.
I got in contact and we had an instant gathering planned.
Our trip had been quite a challenge this time. We were delayed 3 days for a paperwork problem with our insurance. I forgot some travel paperwork at home. Later we got delayed by construction. I missed one of my routes. We finally made it to Cleveland for a day. Then we were off to Kalamazoo. Later we are stopping at Hell and then on to Cincinnati, Pittsburgh, and Richmond, VA.
Friday night's Type-In was great. We typed a bit, downed a few brews, talked about the world of broadcasting, shortwave listening, ham radio, and back when broadcast radio was great. Oh, we talked about typewriters and our typewriters also. I do not know all the ladies talked about. I do know they talked about some of the birds in Florida, especially Mrs. M's favorite, the roseate spoonbill.
I started this post last night. Got delayed today. Lost the paper I typed last night that I was going to post from the type-in.
All-in-all a great experience.
A very hearty thank you to all.
