2013 IPMS USA Nationals

The Dumb (Ken) and Dumber (Mike) road trip.

The first idea that sounded good at the time was to drive. Note to self...20 hours in the car at 50 years old is WAY different than 20 hours in the car at 35 years old. Getting old sucks...and the trip home is REALLY gonna suck!  But oh well, we left Chattanooga at 6pm last night, and 21 hours later we pulled into the convention site at 1pm this afternoon. By this evening we were through all the registration hoops (a seamless and flawless process with pre registration, and had our entries on the tables. A quick pass through the vendors to get a feel for the landscape, a few hours of meeting up with guys we haven't seen for a year, and here are a few highlights of the entries as of about 5:30 this afternoon. 

Mark "The Duke" Deliduka (apologies to The Duke if I mispelled that) and his Magnum Opus Dora Rail Gun in 1/72.  If you aren't familair with Mark, I have three things to say about him.  First, he is a world class nice guy!  Second, he builds only 1/72 scale.  Third, he has more fun just building models than probably anyone else I know.  And fourth (yeah, I know, I said three things, but as noted at the start of this missive...I'm Dumber), he's prolific as all hell.  The rail gun is just one of his 100 entries this year!


Ok, that's all for now.  Highlights from yesterday.  Check back for more later!
