curious if anyone is heading over, or down or up to the FUN convention in Orlando FL, and or setting up there....if so for any specific reason, other than fun, since so many entities are present there in this coin industries larger convention??? heritage auctions will be running a coin auction , and the exhibits are more than educational for any coin collectors, various seminars are ongoing throughout the conventions 5 day venue...looking forward to some fellowship and warmth from friends and climate...

I'm in Orlando now on a family vacation. We are headed for home (driving) Weds morning. I've tried every which way to buy another day, but it does not look like it's in the cards:(

Ah well at least we are having a good trip, mama and the boys are happy. Maybe better off waiting for little bit cheaper metal at the end of this month.

disconnect the ignition and play dumb, then a self miraculous fix when ready...ha, it could add expenses and a possible lack of lodging however....you will look like a genius..?!!! family trumps collection by all means..

we fly into tampa very soon...and cant wait !!! not so much for the show, but other things like riding in the warmth, and visiting dear friends..

safe driving..

I have already done battle with my selfish man and won!!
I've only been to one real coin show so far. Going to this one may ruin me for life. Nope I'll be headed home. Another time for sure.

Enjoy the show!! A good run down of the experience would be in order though. Loking forward to hearing of it.

Off to epcot to be hearded with my fellow sheep:o

we shipped down all our riding gear we should need just after Christmas, UPS...and have carry on luggage with riding gear and 2 helmets, for the ride to our fiends house in Lakeland after landing, till we lod the bike up properly for the week... we shipped all except the super cold 9volt vests and gloves...and we ride in the sunlight only, no night riding anymore of any distance, other than from say restaurant to hotel, etc... with all the tupperware and windscreen on the bike we stay pretty protected from elements...looking forward to FL even though the have maybe 11 tight urns in the whole state?? haha.. up in horse country and the pan handle and west Florida its nice riding..not looking forward to I-4 and Orlando riding, but hey its okay its 2 wheels...

rode today in CT for 100 plus miles at 40 odd degrees...chill but nice with all the foliage down and a great look around all tight fast corners...
