NW Gas Geek Breakfast tour - Sun Nov 16 2003 08:02 PM

Hi all. Local Frank and Steve Snow picked me up at 6:45 am and it was off to Verns House to picj him and Dennis up. Verns House had some incredible stuff but I forgot to take pictures..maybe he could post some. Then it was off to Tacomas famouse Poodle Dog for some breakfast.

Sorry some of my pictures came out a lil dark..i dont know why. After filling up at the poodle dog we were off to Ricks place. Rick has alot of really cool stuff displayed very nicely. Alot of cool Flying A stuff.

After Ricks House it was off to Tims place. Tims breaker blew as I was taking pics because he had the place lit up like a Christmas tree..LOL


I did manage to get this nice shot outside at one of Tims original pumps.
After Tims place it was time to head to Arts amazing collection down on the water.

Ha ha that's funny T-Bone

Yes, I had a great time as well meeting everyone and looking at all of the great stuff. It motivated me enough I went and bid on a bunch of stuff on ebay, oh well, worry about the money later.

Great collections all. Thanks for the open house Tim, Rick, and Art.
Rex regarding the Sinclar globe in Art collection. I'll answer since I am not sure Art gets on here. It was one of the pieces Art got from the GPM. The globe was a fantasy piece someone made for Jeff Pederson. It was very cool and Art felt it was worth keeping. Other than that no one knows too much about it.
Art has put together a great collection in a fairly short time.

Outstanding collections ! Thanks for sharing with the rest of us.
I always thought that it would be fun for someone like "Roy Reed" to put on his bash, and have one day, where he had a bus come pick up everyone, take them around to other collections in the Los Angeles area. Maybe even take in the Peterson Auto Museum. Hey, if they are going to have 4 and 5 day bashes, they might as well make good use of the time?
