I plan on using the first trip to evaluate whether two will be enough. Also, Pete says that stuff needs to be moved to access the Alphas and the keypunch. I intend to do some of that on the first trip.

Yeah, I was wondering about whether any of the stuff that needs to be moved is of interest.

I intended to write ‘interested’ here. Thanks, autocorrect!

We can discuss this offline.
>> As far as getting one or more Alpha to Wellsboro ... it would be a race car team transporting the machine. I would make arrangements at the race in Portland this coming weekend, drop the equipment off with them at the next race in WA state and the equipment would be at the race after that in Wellsboro. But, at this time, I have not yet identified a team that would do it. They would want specifics on the Alphas that I don’t yet have.

We don’t race on tracks. It is called ‘stage rally’, the US version of the World Rally Championship. They race against the clock on closed, gravel roads. The cars are street-legal and, to get from one timed section to the next, they drive on open, public roads, obeying the rules of the road. On the timed sections, someone sits in the passenger seat calling out a detailed description of the next turns coming up to the driver. When I competed, I was one of those guys reading directions.
The Wellsboro rally is called STPR (Susquehannock Trail Performance Rally).
