    Is anyone going to the Huntsville Hamfest a week from today in Alabama?
    I have a table and will be purveying a random assortment of crap.

    I went a few years ago, but didn't get there this last time...

    Jimmy,

    I went a few years ago, but didn't get there this last time...

    I took the Greyhound Bus there from Little Rock, Arkansas nearly
    6 years ago, as it was cheaper than flying, and Amtrak doesn't
    serve the area.

    However, it was truly a sardine can on wheels...my legs were so
    cramped from the ride, that I nearly fell when getting up, then
    to make matters worse, my pants fell off my hips. Had it not been
    for Depends, it would've been "FULL MOON RISING" (never mind the
    song from CCR (Credence Clearwater Revival -- never mind Covenants
    Creeds And Restrictions (hi hi).

    I had to take the bus from North Little Rock, Arkansas to
    Nashville, Tennessee...with a brief stop in Memphis. In Nashville,
    I changed buses to go to Huntsville.

    I have some family in the Nashville area (and know a ham radio
    operator who checks into one of my nets from the area), and was
    able to see my aunt and uncle on the way back (I had a longer
    layover on the way back home). So, my aunt took me to a nearby
    White Castle, where I got the combo of "6 gut grenades <G>, a
    large french fry, and a large Coca-Cola". That filled me up!!

    Then, considering I still had a few hours before my bus back to
    Memphis and Little Rock, she took me to their home to visit with
    her and my uncle (both are in poor health now).

    On the way back to the bus station, there was an ambulance ahead
    of us, and the back doors were WIDE OPEN!! We kept thinking a
    gurney/stretcher with a patient on it, was going to roll out at
    any moment!! It beat all I had ever seen!!

    However, with congestive heart failure now, and financial issues
    (being on a fixed income, and fully disabled for almost 20 years),
    I don't go outside of Pulaski County (Little Rock) anymore...either
    for hamfests or otherwise. I gave up driving 7 months ago, and sold
    my car, due to dry corneas that would blur my vision without warning.
    Even with eye drops, it happens here at home at the computer, and
    even during ham radio nets. Then, for the nets, I have to muddle
    through to the end...then I just get away from the computer, put in
    eye drops, and go to bed.

    Daryl, WX4QZ

    ... Please don't startle me. I tend to poop easily.
