    There is a big brown box that arrived in Texas yesterday after being shipped from Maryland waiting for final payment...then it will make its way to Virginia.

    So, 1,361 miles from Stevensville, MD to McKinney, TX and 1,292 miles from McKinney, TX to Chantilly, VA.

    2,653 miles and 18 months - it will be mine.

    That is all for now.

    You do realize that shipping it halfway across the country and back does not make it 'road-worn'. It's not adding anything except wait time!

    Anxious to see what pops out...

    Sadly, Les has only memories of hunting beaver in the wild.

    But they’re fond memories. ;)

    Miss the days of setting traps and beating them over the head with a club? Those nights must have been lonely since it was 60,000 years before the invention of the vacuum tube.

    It has been estimated that the human population on earth 60,000 years ago was less than 10,000 individuals.

    https://genographic.nationalgeographic.com/human-journey/

    And yet humanity still managed to eventually overpopulate the planet, so I’d have to say the problem of loneliness wasn’t all that bad.

    And after sixty millennia, the culmination of humanity’s existence as a species, the invention of the vacuum tube amplifier, took place!

    “But Les, What about human accomplishments since, like pocket calculators, cell phones, going to the moon, personal computers and the internet?”

    “Merely signs of mankind’s decline and eventual replacement by machines, my boy; I say, signs of our decline.”

    Overtime, a box that’s travelled an unusual journey, the plot thickens!
