Toledo OH

After our traditional side trip to Frankenmuth MI to visit Bronner's Christmas Wonderland and dinner at Zenders (great fired chicken, all you can eat) we arrived in Toledo on Friday afternoon and found the rest of the NEMES guys.  Set up was accomplished and I commenced to wander around the hall looking for interesting engines and models.  It was great to see friends from previous years and to meet new folks.

I will probably be receiving more pots from Norm Jones and others so please check back after a while to see if these pages have been updated.

Video clips are provided in MPG and WMV format.  The WMV is quicker to load and view but the MPG are of much higher quality.  Your choice!
