Sunday of next week, James and I would like to have a build day.

We want to work on costuming and stuff, kinda get ready for ConQuest for those of us going.

I'd also like to get the reupholstered chairs installed in the Interesting Times and out of my office.

James would like to be social and give a hand to anyone who needs just one. If it's good weather, we'd like to have a barbeque.

Anyone interested?

James and Lisi will not be going this weekend due to James having a minor accident. I am sure Lisi will fill in more details later.

Next weekend: More work on the Interesting Times. Duane, do you have the measurements for the floorboards with you? Also, do we want to start working on the exterior, weather permitting?

I'd like to gather up the decorations for the room party and put them in the steamer trunk. If you've got some decorations you'd like to bring and don't want to lug them in your own bags, bring them over and we'll pack them into the trunk. Also packing up the cheap booze. Any donations to the room party on that front, or in the form of snacks or plastic cups are also welcome.

Also- does anyone need assistance with getting costumes together, fitting, repairing or altering things? I know I need to work on a couple pieces of my and James' outfits, and was thinking maybe we could get together Saturday the 20th for a costuming day.

Just a reminder, if you haven't already reserved your room, please call and do that. The web site says the hotel is filling up fast.

so, as we were unable to get the metal this week, (hans and I shall do so on friday) we prepped the bus for welding next week.   the floor boards are ready to be put in, we still need to pick up the flooring, which hans and I can measure for lisi on friday.  aside from that, we have an estimate from the young man  doing the welding.  if everything is prepped for him, and ready to rock and roll on sunday, it should take him about 2 hours or so to put the frame in.  and yea, he can do the job.  the patchs on where the existing frame broke are in place, and holding well.

...Being an Excerpt of a Description of an Expedition into the Hinterlands of Missouri, and Retrieval of Specimen Therefrom.

"...I began from my Base Camp upon the afternoon of 5th March. As I appurtenanced no difficulty, and a speedy return, I failed to lay on provisions prior to departing. This would prove to be a challenge.

I and my pack beast, having forgone the usual native bearers, set off to the East, seeking the Specimen described to myself upon the list of one Craig, by name. Daggeuerotypic evidence indicated that the Specimen was perfectly suited for the uses to which I and our Crew desired to turn it. I encountered no difficulty on the outbound trip, and arrived at the magnificent ruins of the Springs of Excelsior in fair time.

I had been advised to contact a native guide upon my arrival, as the local area was tortuous and difficult to navigate. The guide, being of the tribe Rutilus Gutter (as he himself described himself to me, those of the Red Neck), spoke with an accent most Peculiar. Initially, I mistook his directions, returning to the South, but soon, I was headed again to the North. The path through the ruins twisted and turned most confusingly; I feel if it was laid down by the hand of Man, the man who laid it out must have been partaking heavily of absinthe and laudanum. I had been warned of local warlike Hottentots, called by the natives in their curious dialect poe-leez; I was forced to rein in the pack beast to a bare walking pace for many miles.

Finally, I located the resting place of the Specimen. Subsequent to examination, I traded a few baubles for it; the skeleton is indeed intact, even though the flesh has been removed. It must be re-covered prior to display by our lovely and talented team of seamstresses, or possibly we can find a premade coverage somewhere in the City upon my return. Sadly, I fear it has been plagued by rodents; can any of our medical personnel provide me with a cure for the dread Futon Mouse Disease?

Having secured my Specimen on the pack beast, (and the Specimen was indeed larger than described; I fear it would not have fit within Capt. Garbanzo's velocipede in any way), I began my return trip. Mostly uneventful, save for a bold, masked, furry thief who refused to yield the right-of-way upon the High Road; I was required to divert around him, as he would not be turned from his dinner. I have arrived now back at Base Camp, ravenous and dehydrated, and will endeavour to contact the other members of the Crew as we had discussed, to-morrow day.

I remain, your faithful Correspondent,
Dr. Z. C. Carlisle-Addams."
