Dayton 2007

Well, Bob is back from the South Pole and that means it's time for Dayton. Sure the test equipment is only a shadow of its former self, but where can you see such a strange collection of junque? This year I left on Friday morning. I didn't get parked until 11 a.m. and decided to completely omit the inside vendors.
