The 3 Phono Nerds are now at the Show. We are buying and selling and watching nearly normal people at the Show. We picked up a Wisconsin Phono Nerd, Ken, on the way to the Show this morning. Look at another Oregon Phono Nerd, Russie, with his unusual hat. Some people just sit around at the Show.

The 3 Original Nerds are also busy renewing many friendship.

This morning, the last morning of the show, Stan got really excited on the way to Wild West Town when he saw the hydrant flushing sings in downtown Union. A start of an exciting day!

When we finished packing after the show our truck and trailer were so full we were a bit nervous that everything might not fit, but like jigsaw pieces it all fit and things are right up to the door. Here are Jerry, Stan, and Dale just before we closed things up and got on the road.

When we got to Minnesota we drove up a very pretty road that followed the Missippi river to Red Wing. We picked up a very nice bicycle Jerry have found on Craigslist. Stan has very strong opinions on mixing phonographs and bicycles! But notice he did get coerced into helping Jerry turn the handle bars and remove the pedals so it would fit on the bike rack.

Jerry and Stan, thanks for packing my new Edison Italian Umbrian IU-19 in there somewhere! I think it is under the blue cover on the left. Looking forward to getting it in Aug. at the APS show! Marc.

The worst machine, and worst deal, at any phonograph show anywhere...

Here are many photos from the Union Show. That is me in a selfie with my new friend, Darius from Lithuania. He just bought his first Edison phonograph!!

Why does Denise get in every Photo?? There is even one with husband, Scott. Stan

Hi Dan, Jerry, and Stan,

Thanks so much for these wonderful photos! It must have been so much fun and if I could have attended I know I would have had a marvellous time.
Congratulations and enjoy your new treasures--have a safe journey home :)

Steven

It was fun to read of your adventures. How was the trip back between Wyoming and Oregon?
