Connecting with people
Just returned from a 6 day trip to Vancouver and Tofino! Had a wonderful time! Prior to going I connected with Dale Laird the President of the TRAMS group in Vancouver. I set up a meeting and enjoyed talking to him about the heritage of streetcars and interurbans. Out there they are currently challenged by the repeated theft of copper wire used in the overhead trolley connections. Obviously without proper connections the trolleys can't run! What a shame to see this happen repeatedly and a piece of history might be lost due to the repeated high costs involved.
I thank Dale for his support of my book project and he took 6 books to sell out in Vancouver! How rewarding for me to see my book get out to the west coast! Thank you Dale!
