It’s a great time Jim!! You can be a newbie to steam that morning and you will be running an engine the second day. Did I mention the grounds are right next to an airport  ;)

I don't see how I could ever make it to that school, but boy-howdy I'd sure like to some day!!!

The School's cost is truly negligible, but I fear that the overall logistics are a bit beyond what I can reasonably manage at this point in life. Then again, other than the fun of doing and learning, I don't see any chance at all of ever making use of the skills attained.

Some day....

But not this year.

The weekend before my youngest daughter’s wedding in Fort Collins, Colorado.

I had a father/son in my small group that came from North Carolina, so people do travel from all around the country to this. There really are not that many schools out there I guess that offer such a great opportunity (and at such a low cost)

Congrats Charlie! (and daughter)

I'm not doing any more steam study; I've done enough! But maybe some photography and computer study would come in handy?
