Leavin San Antonio at 6:30 am in the morning Scott.

We had a big day with the Alamo Roundup Parade; a Tour of the Alamo; a visit to Paris Hatters; a boat ride on the River Walk and dinner at the Mariachi Bar.



Charlie, that takes major... guts... to ride those longhorns.  Great video!

Hey... I never got to see Danny's hat.  I liked his belt.

Also sounded like a great visit to the Alamo.

Thanks again!

I wanted to thank everyone for your feedback and comments.

It was a lot of work to keep this updated along the way and your feedback kept me motivated to continue the updates.

When Danny settles back to normal activities, hopefully, he will post some of his unpublished video and photos.

There are a few options my way for shows...

LeSueur is about 1 1/2 hrs away, not the biggest show, but well attended and has the dedicated Miniatureland building (which is sadly getting less and less displays) and railroad. This is the show that I was told I was allowed to run on steam (would have to confirm that) and like all shows, air is available... and probably a lot easier, but where's the fun in that  ;)  LeSueur is also close to the Twin Cities area, and we now have 4 members that I know around there.  August 28-30th

http://www.pioneerpowershow.com/show.html

Rollag is well known as the biggest show that everyone in the Midwest wants to attend besides Mt. Pleasant, IA. I have been to both and I thought Rollag was the better of the two. Rollag has a Miniatureland of many 1/4, 1/3 and 1/2 scale traction engines, hay presses and separators... And within Miniatureland they have a building for the smaller models and toys. I have seen Clif Roemmich here many times. Rollag is roughly 5 hrs northwest of me and is the weekend after LeSueur - September 4-7th (Labor Day Weekend)

https://rollag.com

And a show that I have not yet attended but would really like to is Clif Roemmich's "Black Hills Model Engineering Show" in Rapid City, SD. A bit of a drive for me at 8 hrs, but closer than NAMES - September 26-27th

If I do not make it to Rapid City this year, then I will try to make it to the Estevan Model Engineering Show which is just over the Canadian border in Estevan, Saskatchewan and an 11 hour drive. - October 17-18th
