    Someone out there is reading my mind again :eek: Yesterday, while I was spending 7 hours of windshield time getting back to Council Bluffs from southern Missouri I got to thinking about "The Box" and wondering what has ever happened to "kettlestack" from Scotland, who was one of the great contributors to this thread and caused me to laugh out loud more than once. :thumb:

    I stayed with the thread for a long time and then when we moved a year or so ago I had other priorities and I have not been nearly as active on The Gauge as I would like to be. Another great contributor was Woodie. I tried a month or so ago to send him an e-mail or private message, but never heard back from him :( :(

    Everytime I sign on there are so many new people I don't recognize :( Guess I need to spend more time on here and get to know them.

    Kettlestack hasn't been here for a year - since the new boards :(

    Woodie has been in once in a while :) Search in members names for anyone you want info on & then click "Find all posts" and it'll show you the last few posts & Dates... :D

    You need to put a tarp on that crate because it look's like it's going to rain. Lol. One of these day's I'll finish up on the scratch built crates made from a wooden locomotive shed.

    Just curious. Is this still the longest thread on the Gauge, both in terms of messages posted and the length of time it has stayed active. I think it is amazing. I guess as I think back it has actually morphed a couple of times, but it is still the same thread.:)

    No, not quite. "Once upon a Train" started almost a year earlier than this one, and is about twice as long. "Brain Teaser..." is the longest one. We did a search about a year ago to find the earliest post, and it happened within a day or so of when the Gauge was born.

    Incidentally, both the "Once upon a Train" and "Brain Teaser..." threads have been moved to the new coffee klatch forum "The Caboose".

    Mikey,
    Thanks for stopping by, wish I could have spent more time with you, but I was there to "work". I did get some time to go around to visit the other booths. It was a great show, there was a lot of neat stuff there, and we (GCLaser) made a lot of contacts.
