NARAM 53 was held in Lebanon, Ohio, which is outside of Cincinnati. I decided to drive out. Google Maps told me it was about 14 hours, which would be OK split over two days. Besides, it’s a pain having to ship stuff ahead, especially when the contest models aren’t finished yet!
I ended up with a crisis at work, which ate up some time that could have been spent finishing my Scale Altitude model, but it was mostly ready when I packed up and left Friday morning. I made it as far as Youngstown, Ohio on Friday and drove the last four hours to the launch site on Saturday. I arrived just about lunch time. I had enough time to say “Hello” to some folks, grab some lunch and cruise Vendor Row before a nasty thunderstorm hit. EZ-ups were flying everywhere. I decided to head for the hotel and unpack.
