Railfanning from and near the Hotel
Andy & Dave Heine Rockin Out! Donna before Dinner
We arrived at the hotel at 9:00 AM. It is literally just off of I-95 as you will soon see. So at least the hotel is not a truck stop, but it IS attached to the bus depot. Who knew? The truck stop is across the street. The hotel is very nice though. You can walk right to the 24 hour food court without going outside that has KFC and other fine dining establishments.
Pop math quiz…
Bus Depot + Donna + Vacation =?
You really don’t want to know but the stab wounds have almost stopped bleeding.
The view from our room on the 10th floor.
Yes that is I-95

After the tour and dinner I helped Don & Robin off load. The selling hall is on the 2nd floor.
The loading dock and freight elevator is closest to the kitchen so all of the SHS stock was carted
through the kitchen. I thought it was like a Soprano’s Style Mob hit coming in through the kitchen.
Donna went off to the ladies tour of Havre De Grace Maryland.
Besides being hot out she had a good time. She is not one to take photos.
I went off to Washington DC Metro and Brentwood Shops tour.

We will get him to backdate to the transition era after running my EM-1 & Baldwin Sharks!
After getting my wings on a borrowed Garmin GPS unit, we wound up at the Ellicott City B&O
Museum, not the Mount Claire Shops downtown. You must obey the GPS until it is really obvious
you are not even close to where you wanted to go! My passengers took the mishap very well…
