THOUGHTS ON COCOA BEACH
About now I am quite desperate to get to an RPM meet. As one might imagine being a model rsilroader in Hawaii is a rather lonely endevour. Cocoa Beach has a lot of appeal but has several drawbacks for me. First the flights out of here are quite constipated with students returning to school after the holidays. The uncertainty of cross country flights (Even sans covid) due to weather at that time year Is daunting. While everyone is enjoying the festivities at Cocoa Beach I could be spending my time trying to get out of Kansas City.
A little later time frame would be better for me. Those of you who know me know that I am not a wuz. The only drawback of living in Paradise is that to go anywhere and take your wife or sweetheart you are over a thousand dollars in the hole and not even.out of baggage claim. I come from a time when "Getting there was half the fun"
Prior to the pendemic I had travels down to where most of the pitfalls were avoided.
I have heard that there is the possibility of Chicago Land might be a part of the NMRA convention in Indianapolus this year. A full RPM meet and a giant train show. I shall keep my fingers crossed.

Andy, It appears that at some near future time there will be rail commuter service between
Orlando International and somewhere near Cocoa Beach. Cocoa, (as not Cocoa Beach), is
supposed to become a stop on the Brightline. I saw construction underway this last
So when the current troubles permit safe flying again, that obstacle will be lessened.
Would like to see you again someday.
