A 180 day tour with your computers you should keep us informed along your route I'm sure you can meet up with some Forum members and maybe they'll ride along with you for a little while on your way around the country.

Since I was delayed, I had the opportunity to add the INSTA 360 ONE X 360 Camera to my bag-o-tricks!

I also got some new cartridges for my label maker. Since I am taking a lot of things along that can easily be dropped, left behind, or "loaned" to someone without my knowledge or consent, I labeled everything with my name and phone number. I don't have high hopes for having things returned, but maybe I can score a few Karma points

Also, since my eyes aren't what they were in my spry youth, I labeled EVERY power supply with a tag that I can READ without a magnifying glass!

5 vdc 600 ma
5 vdc 2.4 a

etc., and I tagged EVERY cord with the type; USB A, USB C, IP (iPhone), etc.

This will make it a lot easier to rummage through the case of peripherals to quickly find whatever I seek.

and NO, I haven't sewn my name into my underwear

I'd sure like that. I have a spreadsheet I am building, with the CONTACT DATA for individuals I might stop to visit for various reasons.

I am offering one-on-one training sessions for DesignEdge software, which runs the PlasmaCam tables. I am fairly good with it, and I have trained many people on how to become proficient with the software in one, two or three days.

I set up am E-mail account to collect contact info to add to the spreadsheet. If someone would like me to stop by, they can send their info to me and I will add it to the list. I cannot promise to visit any individual. It will all depend on their location, window of time, and other factors. But I will sort the spreadsheet by STATE and notify everyone in the state(s) I am approaching that I am "in your area."

Perhaps someone is having a great club ride, or a small group is going somewhere for a weekend ??? Is there some special event worth attending? If I can join in, I just might! I have no itinerary, so I will go wherever I want as I move around the country.

I can stop by to say "Hi," or join you for lunch, or join in on some event, or just let you lead me out of town on your favorite roads. I don't need much of an excuse to go for a ride.

If you want to be added to the list, send the usual contact info to ( add me now at mail dot com ) Not "G-mail." Just MAIL.COM Your info WILL NOT be shared.Send your name, cell phone # for texts, email address, city and state, and any pertinent info such as, "Best dates are July 15 thru Aug 3rd" ...

I will make no promises and offer no appointments, but if it is meant to be ....

That will give me a chance to try out my new 2018 inflatable pontoons from Wing Stuff, and test the trailer for flotation!

Always look at the bright side.
