|The last survivors of my 2001 54mm AWI armies. (Well, them and a score of friends< I really need to find them a new home where they can get some TLC and exercise)|
On the day before we were due to leave a sudden, unexpected, heavy, snowstorm was predicted to hit on the next day. I got hold of Tom and gave him 30 minutes to pack while I loaded the car. Together we drove around the Dalhousie campus where Bruce was adding another Master's to his credentials. Luckily we spotted him, grabbed him, gave him 10 minutes to pack. We hit my Mom's place outside Fredericton just after midnight, grabbed a few hours sleep and headed out again. We made it to the outskirts of Portland before hubcap deep snow on the Interstate forced us into a motel. In the morning the road ahead was clear and by noon we were at the Toy Soldier Museum in Pennsylvania and stripped down to our tshirts. The road behind was closed for two days! Called that one right and we had a great long weekend.
Hard to believe that I don't have even a single picture of that game, not even of the practice ones. Thank goodness for smartphones these days.
|MacDuff at Huzzah 2014 when my carts were new, built for this game and my long gone 40mm AWI collection. (20mm, 40mm and 54mm AWI armies have all come and gone, maybe I should do a PA semiflat one, just a small one.....)|
I did manage to fix a broken part one of my old carts this week but not to touch up the paint or replace the missing draft horse. Still its the weekend, rife with possibilities.
