I'm only planning on bringing my wallet, maybe some clothes, or a spouse, or some combination thereof. You've got some of those, don't you? :D

Ya, I may just bring something already built doctored up a bit. New job and new hours nuked my plans. That's a good problem to have though. Just need to get out and do stuff, period.

Unfortunately  I don't think United Kingdom  will allow non essential travel yet , so for that reason I will not be coming this year.

I had booked a hotel room but cancelled it  in mid 2020.

 

Those that are going, please be safe, have a wonderful time and Martin  WEAR SUNGLASSES in the Hot sun. 

I dont want to hear you have burnt your eyes as you did in Phoenix  and damaged them a little.

SO Behave!!

But have a awesome  time.

Let's hope you do not all have to pay  for quarantine  when you return home.

Lots of best wishes.

Believe it or not it's just the opposite here in California. Some places are offering $50 just to come interview, and a lot of them are paying huge incentives for staying for 3 and 6 months on the job. Many are making much more on unemployment with covid bonuses than they would get working. I did find an amazing managerial position though, so yes, I was very fortunate.

As of right this moment, I’m facing a dilemma.

My shop has FINALLY come out of its Wuhan Depression, and we’re now going gangbusters.  Part of me doesn’t want to upset the apple cart with a prolonged absence, but it’s still a month away, so we’ll see.

Second, I had emergency dental surgery yesterday after I went in to have a sudden toothache investigated and fixed. 
The doc found infection adjacent to the root where I had had a previous root canal performed 5 years ago.  It didn’t show up on X-rays, but a CT scan finally located it.  So, out came the tooth (my first ever) which bothered me way more than it should have. I take pride in having the same teeth the Good Lord gave me.  Then, they did a bone graft in preparation for an implant.   Right now, I’m bloody miserable, and although I love my dentist, I’m real close to cussing’ the day she was born. 
I’m sure y’all have had teeth out and all kinds of dental work performed, but I freakin’ hate this. Feeling a gaping hole between two teeth bothers me waaaaay more than it has any right to.

Anyway, I’ve now popped a fever and am on some sort of antibiotic cocktail which seems to be helping. All this while dealing with my loving wife who’s been crippled up by Lupus. 
 

Here’s to hoping for some resolution within a month.  It’ll be 3-4 months for the bone grafts to take hold, and then some screw that looks for all the world like a 1/8 scale wheel stud gets screwed in place, followed by 3-4 more months of a screw sticking out of my jaw.   Maybe I out to just have 3 or 4 more pulled and move to Arkansas or Maine? Ok, I’ll say it, maybe even Wrexham?  🤣 I’d fit right in. My offhand smack at the Welch hehehe

So the next few weeks will tell a story  let’s see what happens.

How is it looking for international travel?  Canadians, Brits, Germans, Dutch, Poles, French, Japanese?  
 

I see the Czechs have it all figured out, because all the big Czech and Hungarian vendors will be there, ready to gladly sell us every last thing we can afford or have room for in our bags.  
Is there a quarantine from the EU? The Czech Republic is a member of the EU and I can’t believe Special Hobby/CMP, Eduard and such would willingly sit in quarantine.

Not sure on Hungary, but they have vendors listed as attending.

Ernie, glad to hear your business is doing well. 

Haven't had an adult tooth pulled much less a cavity. Didn't get wisdom teeth either so the most I've ever had done at the dentist is my usual cleaning and inspection.  

With the restrictions on travel having just changed recently it's too late to make plans to attend. There was so much uncertainty that we ended up booking a number of campsites in provincial parks for the same time frame and staying here.

One day I'll get down there and meet you all. 

Carl
