    Awesome, Tom! And with a few days to relax before the show. We'll have a car there to help you provision. I think I'm coming down Thursday afternoon. I'm going to ride down with Clint and help him get set up.

    I'll be hanging around at the show on Friday and Saturday. Looking forward to meeting up with old friends and new ones. Hope for fair weather.

    I should be there all day Saturday and perhaps a bit more besides. Looking forward to it.

    We get in Friday afternoon, but I will probably just get to the show first thing Saturday morning.

    If anyone wants one, I'll leave a bag of name tags and markers at Thomas Oyster House. Just help yourselves!

    I'm soooooo looking forward to seeing old friends and attaching faces to folks I haven't had the chance to meet before!

    And for anyone wishing they could come, it's not too late!!!!

    I will be on display starting Saturday around noon. On and around PHALAROPE, probably lounging on the foredeck in my thong. Or hiding under a pile of rope. Or is it line? Gah!

    See y'all there.

    I'll be exploring around Saturday, likely trying to answer my 6yr-old son's questions on why he can't take a steam boat ride.

    Supposed to be a bit cooler than here (just a few degrees). So far - looks sunny or partly so.

    As a consolation, I think you and your son are in for a treat, the Draken Harald Hårfagre is on display starting this weekend. I'm very much looking forward to seeing it.

    As a local, I was about to chime in and heartily endorse Ford's over Abbott's, but then I see a guy from Philly beat me to it. As an FYI, both Ford's and Abbott's are BYOB, so plan accordingly. Or not; Universal Package Store is one block away from Ford's. As blocks go in Noank.

    Frankly, I'm partial to the pub at the Daniel Packer Inn, but that's close to fleece territory - if you can get a seat.

    Good Point

    I just found out Benjamin Mendlowitz is speaking at 3 pm at the Masin Room by the north entrance. That'll be on my to do list

    Sabino isn't the only steamboat to show up at the WBS in Mystic. This boat was at the Show two years ago:

    Hmm, looks like Photobucket has shut me out, too. This picture showed just fine for me last night and now it doesn't. Drat.

    Photobucket just changed their terms of service. That will blow up a lot of pics here.

    Free account : Each individual Member gets one free account that provides 2 GB of free storage or space available for your original photo files, or videos under 10min. The free account does not allow any image linking or 3rd party image hosting. If a free account Member exceeds their Content Limit, their account will be immediately suspended and they will need to become a “Paying Member” (defined below) in order to continue accessing their account. You can upgrade to a Plus account at any time.



    Image linking is not allowed even on the $60/year paying plan - you have to go to $100/year.

    Time to move I guess.

    Quick Test:




    How odd! I'll leave it up for a bit just to see what happens

    No, the $100 a year won't let you link pictures either. You need the $399 plan for that. They are done. No one will pay that.

    ??

    • Available Plus Account Plans : Photobucket offers the following Plus Account Plans:

    o Plus 50 Plan: 52 GB of Storage for $59.99 / Year. The Plus 50 Plan does not allow any image linking or 3rd party image hosting.
    o Plus 100 Plan: 102 GB of Storage for $99.99 / Year. The Plus 100 Plan allows for unlimited image linking but does not allow 3rd party image hosting.
    o Plus 500 Plan: 500 GB of Storage and unlimited bandwidth for $399.99 / Year. The Plus 500 Plan allows for unlimited image linking and unlimited 3rd party image hosting.


    Isn't what we do "Image Linking"?

    Their roasted garlic is fantastic as is their "stack" appetizer. I'll go with that as an entree.

    RE : Photobucket, I've been using http://tinypic.com/ to be able to post images here. I don't recall who suggested it - I think Michael Beckman - but it works OK and there is a phone app for it as well. Free, but doesn't host images for you in an organized way unless you "join" by providing information.

    We're looking forward to seeing everyone once again, meeting new friends, stroking any ruffled feathers, and talking boats...catboats.

    Alix and I will be there for the day Saturday. If you see a fella with a substantial beard, a red "Acorn to Arabella" shirt and a camo Woodland Mills hat feel free to say hi!

    I will try to show up at 11 to cross paths with y'all.
    Looking forward to it!

    Have a great time, as we do at Hobart.

    Hmm, Photobucket is changing things it looks like. Now in post 62 I see a small box and if I click on it a window opens up and it takes me to the Photobucket website where you can see the pic of Twodot's boat, Phalarope. And a bunch of annoying pop up ads. But I guess that's better than what it was doing yesterday. Can you guys see that.
