Took me 3 days to get home. However, once I got my watch set to the correct time at home, I actually gained TWO hours instead of just the ONE that I set for. In true bone head style, almost missing my own seminar as a result is simply a classic move on my part.
A small hangup at the border:
Customs Officials : "What's in the crate ?".
Mylo: A 9' long model submarine.
Customs Officials : "Open it up, let's take a look" (doubtful tone).
Mylo : Opens crate and removes sub.
Customs Officials : "I'll be damned, it IS a model submarine. Where the hell in the U.S. did you buy that and where's your receipt ?"
Mylo : *sigh...anticipating much explaining* "There is no receipt, I made it."
20 minute delay later, I was granted permission to return to Canada, ....after sub thoroughly inspected for hidden drugs.
It was a true pleasure to finally put some faces to some names that I've come to know over the past 18 months during the process of my VIIc/41 build. As expected, all good guys.....even Merriman. I look forward to meeting again at another Regatta sometime. Everything about the Regatta was first rate in my opinion. Many thanks to all responsible.
