We will be at the NAWCC National clock convention at Dayton OH. Going in our vintage Airstream (with all the kitties!) June 29th through August 2nd . This is a great convention. Then we’re planning on visiting Donna’s Sister and brother in law in Conway MO. Then we’re planning on taking a summer vacation camping in Colorado! It looks like we’ll probably not have much internet access during the trip with all the driving, convention activities, and camping in the National Forests. We’ll ship ASAP right after returning. We’ll begin shipping on Monday right after we get back. Sorry for the inconvenience.
