I arrived here yesterday and found that the hot tub is, in fact, HOT. And it's still HOT today. There's steam coming off of it. Not enough to run an engine, but more than enough to melt the ice that was floating in it the last number of years.

Not all the rooms are finished yet. But a good numbe are. And there seems to be plenty of HOT and cold running water!

The staff are very keen to have us and help in any way they can. The 2009 banner is up, the chairs are out, in the lecture room and the tables are in place in he swap shop area.

So......where is everybody?

Here is the forecast for Diamondhead next week.
Looks like you yankees and canadians will be bringing your shades and shorts, and maybe a small umbrella.
Steamtom1 and the Michigan steamers just bring the beer!!
See you soon.

David,

Are you the only one there?

Has Canada changed the calendar in some way - it's going to be 5 days before we leave.

I'm riding with Ken (the Regner dude) and Dave O.(seadawg) we will be leaving Wednesday morning and getting there that night so keep the fire under the hot tub going, I'm sure we will need the use of it.

Is that how they extend the season up there? That looks like it actually works! You can also roast weenies and toast marshmallows"

So......where is everybody?




In '07 I think the track was up and steam being produced almost two weeks before the official start.

David, John Fuller is currently 'on the road' so I can't ask him if there will be a web cam or not. If there is going to be one, I'm sure he is the guy that will get it going. Guess we'll know Sunday late afternoon, or Monday morning.

If I can pull the webcam image directly (or a image every 5/10 secs), I can write a php script to put together a time lapse video of pictures of the entire week and then post it up you guys.

Would be interesting to look at.

Just don't aim the camera at the sales areas or please turn it off when a new acquisition is running!

I just thought I'd warn you guys that Gordon Watson will be at DH this year.
In fact he might be very close by this time.
I was going to join him but the AC-12 wouldn't fit in the suitcase.

Be gentle with him as we need him back to run the GSSU in October.

Mike,

I certainly am but as the old saying goes - "It's going to cost more this year!" Not really.

Why don't you just buy the remaining pieces and I won't have to haul the box back and forth!

Howdy All:

We made it! It's time for the annual Diamondhead Steamup and a vacation!!


I don't have the live camera this year. Figured I needed to spend more time relaxing. I will be posting images, probably daily, to the Diamondheadsteamup Google Images site. Hope you enjoy them. Just posted 6 images of the emptiness but you know that won't last for long!

From 2009-01-11-Sunday

Over the week I will try and set my laptop out to do some live Audio/Video through a service called Stickam. I believe it can handle hundreds of viewers at the same time. I guess we will see.

The down side is that I have to leave my work laptop out for the video to stream. Don't tell anyone at work!!!!


I will do my best to post something here when I do it. If I know ahead of time, I will try and post a time as well. The quality will depend on the speed of the wireless here at the hotel. So who knows what we will get from that.

Have a great week everyone. I know I will.


When I am running live video, you will be able to see it here: http://www.johnsgardenrailway.info/Stickam.htm
Also, I think it might show the total number of viewers currently on. It might be nice to know how many we can get and if it works.

Later,

John
