    I used to spend time in Rugby. My dad grew up there, grandma lived there.

    Haven't been back since the early 80's.

    Thanks to Google street view I can see very little has changed. Might be time for a visit

    If Charles was still with us, his quote may be updated to keep up with the times.

    Yep, the time draws nigh for exploration.

    Soon enough our cars will drive themselves from one city to the next. The only way you'll be able to tell where you are is by the billboards and street signs.

    I'll do my best to make this. Sounds like a good excuse to burn some dinosaurs.

    Fellas at work have June pretty much booked, which screws my month. I need to see which weeks they are gone before committing.

    Just ordered a dozen patches, which I think should have us covered. (If not, that will be a happy problem to have.) They should be here in a couple of weeks; I will post a photo when I get them.

    I went with a little embroidery shop in Canada to keep the costs down. They're doing the run for a good-guy price: $US 120, shipped. Quality most likely won't be quite as crisp as what those big online vendors can do, but all the other sources I contacted wanted a whole lot more money to do a small run like this.

    I promise, it'll be the best $10 patch I could find.

    Ghetto scribing, I would say there is a 40% chance for me, depending how cheap I can do it

    Well, we're about five weeks out. Can I get a roll call?
    Please let me know who's definite, who's probable, and who's a long shot maybe.
