EXCERPT FROM APPENDIX 1 from Don Featherstone's Battles With Model Soldiers
(The book that got me started.)

"Nothing in these pages is a dictate, no word says you must or you shall do it this way. On the contrary, the book sets out from the very beginning to stimulate the reader to think for himself, and to use what he has read merely as a foundation for efforts and ideas which reflect his own temperament and character. Only in this way will he obtain maximum satisfaction from the hobby of battling with model soldiers."

Boots and Saddles

After a few hectic days of last minute preparations, distractions etc, there is a worryingly small number of boxes packed into my car. Hopefully this is a result of my having learned to pack for air travel to host 54mm games at conventions, not that I've forgotten something crucial.  (Must check for passport again.)

For those who wonder why I'm leaving Tuesday for a game on Friday night when its only 1,000 km to go this year, I'm stopping off  1/2 way for 2 nights with family. Unless I remember how to do mobile posts from my phone, next post in a week.

exeunt singing  
"heigh ho away we go, there's no such word as can...nn..nn't.,
We'll march right down to Port.land.. AND  BAaaaACK! 

forrrrrrr........." (fade away).

    I think the half empty trunk is to provide space for the new toys you pick up along the way.

    Enjoy the trip


  2. Hi Ross,

    Will be at the convention Saturday. Will attempt to look you up and say hello.


  3. Enjoy the trip and the convention.

  4. Portland ME? I am guessing that your are wishing the ferry from Yarmouth was still running, that would save you a few kms. Have a great trip!

  5. Plenty of room in the car Ross - you need more toys!

  6. ...BaaaACK,
