The Trainfest Weekend

posted Oct 25, 2012, 4:36 PM by Darren Altbaum
So, Milwaukee is only 16 days away!  Randy and I are super stoked for a few reasons - first and most importantly, I have been told (by several people) that travelling with me is always an adventure - and Randy found that out last time - it's like traveling with an 8 year old on speed - although I usually say lots of things that an 8 year old wouldn't - and I think that Mr.Moses and Mr.Moses jr. can attest to that!   
     Second reason - I have never been to Milwaukee but I heard that it is native for "the free land" - looking forward to seeing how free it is - what are the tax rates?  If anyone is from the area and has some good tips on what there is to do in the area stop on by - or better yet - join us!
     Third reason is that we have lots of great things to talk about - and when I says great I mean great in a global model sense, please don't ask any questions that involve the any names that have the letters "C" or "M" or "T".   I really have no interest in fuelling the rumour mill or beating a topic that has been talked about so many times...awe....who am I kidding?  I love to hear myself talk.  I just may not give u the answers you want to hear!  
     The fourth reason I am looking forward to going is simply said - road trip.  Travelling with Randy is good fun.  He's a good guy and I am glad to say that he certainly is a welcome addition to the TLT family.  I had my first experience with Randy driving to Michigan -  and I can't wait to do it again.  
     The last reason that I am going to type about - but not the last reason is that I have made several great friends in the model rain industry - and I can't wait to see them all again.  I also don't mind getting out of my house full of girls to hang with the boys and to see my girlfriend! (Thanks Randy!).  Of course. -  it's always better when I come back home.
  C u all soon!
