Well okay, Roswell actually. The car is loaded with all the important stuff:
The goal is to hit the road by 5:30 tomorrow morning and drive with as few breaks as possible, hopefully ending up at the hotel next to VCF SE by early evening.
Depending on timing on the return trip I might head over to Currahee Mountain. My son and I are big fans of Band of Brothers and it would be memorable to see the mountain. Three miles up, three miles down.
Vintage Computer Fest Southeast (VCF SE) is this weekend, April 28-29, 2017. I’ll be displaying both days although will probably leave mid-afternoon on Sunday to start the long drive back to New Jersey (12-13 hours). 12 hours of driving is no problem, but will probably have to stop fro some sleep during the night.
If you are anywhere near the Atlanta Georgia area, please stop by VCF and enjoy all the exhibits, speakers and mingling with like-minded people. It sounds like a large contingent of people from this area are heading down too.
I will have at least one of every assembled product down there, along with displays. If you are looking to buy something in particular it’s probably best to email me very quickly so I know to pack it.
On Thursday morning (4/27) I will do a final shipment of orders for the week, then pack up the car the rest of the day. My plan is to get up and be on the road by 6:00 AM Friday morning. During that time I will be out of touch, and will be doing only limited email checking from the show. Monday will be a delayed start but Tuesday things should be back to normal. Don’t forget that on Wednesday I start a new job.
If you’re at the show, please stop by and say hello!
No, I’m not selling out or closing down. As some of you know, I was making a respectable living as a software consultant during the day while doing vintage computer products in the evenings and weekends. My big contract ended at the end of 2016 and I had another job lined up, but timing wasn’t working out, so in the mean time I spent most of my time doing vintage computer projects.
Sales have always been good but not enough to support my share of household expenses so I decided to look for another opportunity. My timing was perfect, as a well respected company here in southern New Jersey was looking for someone with my skill set… I start on May 3rd.
Corsham Tech will continue operating, but I won’t be answering mid-day emails and might have a few nights each week where family matters come first. Shipping might be a bit more erratic at first as I need to find the local post office and UPS locations, or some shipments might need to wait for the weekend. As always, I’ll try to support customers as best as I can and as quickly as I can. Just don’t be too surprised if things are a bit slower.
Anyway, VCF Southeast is next weekend and I will definitely be there! It might be my last VCF for a while; have to see what the schedule looks like around VCF MW time.
