After careful consideration, I've decided that I will not be attending the Springfield Railroad Hobby Show.
Between the fights with the US border types, an ongoing dispute with Mass tax department and the perils of January weather across upper New York State, I've had enough.
To all of my friends who I usually get to see there, I'm sorry. I will miss seeing you. Particularly the "Dead Railway Society" and the annual feast of tatonka.
I will focus my traveling budget on RPMs instead.
See you in CT next.
