D. Not going.

Having attended two past TM Triennials, I decided to stay home this time, now that they have all the "storage tracks full."
Too many people for me. I'll attend the following Ops meeting.

Then again, maybe I'll drive down to the Tri for a day of visiting, just to be amazed at the gathering.

Shhhh, don't tell anyone about the ops meet, let's keep it our little secret. It was already pretty crowded last year. We had four trains waiting to switch at Phillips at one point. I'm probably an A-minus, I still have to pack but I have spousal-approved funds to spend at the vendor barn. The justification if any of you want to use it was 'it saves on shipping'.

For those that enjoyed the El Rancho restaurant by Jeldwen, it has moved into K Falls, expanded and upscaled. It's out on S 6th St just before Harbor Freight.

if will be like it was three years ago, there will be about four or five trains total for the ops meet :)
I believe Triennial burn out and the heat had a lot to do with that

Yeah Chris, you're probably right. Triennial years kind of warp things.

There's a Harbor Freight in K Falls!!?? AWESOME! :lol: :lol:
So far I've got two plastic tarps, 8 multimeters, five sets of screwdrivers, five tape measures and Thirty Eight flashlights! I'm going for 40 (but I don't plan to stop there....) YeeHa! :P

BTW, I'm loaded and locked. Leaving Thursday and looking to avoid the coming triple-digit temps here (NWS says 104° on Saturday). Hope y'all have a safe trip.

Will do.
I also wish to direct our Australian visitors Phil and LIz Wooley to you at the Tri, with your permission.
They are spending three nights with us before heading south to Chilo.
Wonderful Folks, and great Live Steamers from north of Sydney, AU.
