Pioneer Valley Live Steamers
Fall Meet 2010
17, 18, and 19 September 2010
Youtube video here
As I write this it is September 23 and I am in the grip of computer withdrawal. The night before the PVLS meet my computer video card blew up (all the magic smoke leaked out) and so I delivered the box to the computer hospital. Yesterday the 22nd I got the box back with a new video card and thing were looking great until I hooked up the internet connection. No internet!!! I bought a new modem this afternoon but that didn't solve the problem so tomorrow it is back to the computer shop for a new NIC card. This is getting old.
In the meantime last evening I was able to process all the photos from the meet and I am now putting this page together. I HOPE that I will be able to upload it tomorrow! Wish me luck.
On to the meet. I left work (I had the boys with me all day) and we headed up to the track. Arrived about 5:30 and stayed for couple of hours taking photos and video and talking to folks.
Terri and I and the boys went back up early on Saturday and spent most of the day at the track. The boy and Terri got a great ride on the mainline and then the boys were treated to a wonderful ride on the highline. Thanks so much to Sally (as in Mark and Sally) for arranging the highline ride. She rustled up a bungee cord to help fix the boys to the riding car and off they went with Don Ritchie. Thanks Sally and Don!
As always, if you have anything to offer in way of names or I.D.s of equipment please send it along. It will be much appreciated! firstname.lastname@example.org
