The serious answer is because I have friends who live in an arc
between St. Catherines and the west edge of Toronto, and every
June since the early 80s, they've done a largish camping event
somewhere in the Hamilton area (Knight's Dunmark Park is where
it was 20 years ago, but that was turned into a golf course).

While these friends aren't into classic computers at all, it
does give me incentive to spend the gas to drive 7-8 hours
from central Ohio, and puts me in that area for quick little
side trips (like to Jerome's house) every few years.
