(Yes, you’ve been off for years. As the English joke goes.) I would title this Ann & Pete’s Great Adventure 2019, but that’s been taken. Anyway, we leave tomorrow for an 8-10 week trip to Canada by boat, via the Hudson, Erie Canal, Lake Ontario, the St Lawrence Seaway, and then the Richelieu and Champlain Canals via Lafe Champlain back to Albany and then down the Eastern Seaboard to home in Maryland. It’s officially known as the “Little Loop” or the “Canadian Loop”.
No trains on board, and few places where there are trains close to the waterways. In Rome, NY, where we are supposed to spend July 4th, there is a place across the street called CRC Raceway, which seems to do r/c car racing but has a Hobby Store full of r/c car parts and stuff. Time to get a new driveshaft for the railtruck with universals, or a bevel gear drive. We’ll see.
Anyway, access to LSC will be sporadic, so don’t leave too many nastygrams for me.
