Looks like everyone had a great time. Too bad I coudn't make it this time. Thanks Richard for doing HEAS every year, and I hope to make it next year.

I really appreciate all the kudos from you folks. It is nice comments like these that give me the impetus to continue the now nearly 20 year old traditional gathering.

Thanks to Eric for posting something other than fusor images! As you can see the flea market images the crowds just about killed my lawn. Fortunately, I am not a lawn freak. With 36 days since the last rain, it wasn't doing well anyway.

Anyone else shoot any other pix?

Interestingly the most severely taxed facility at my home is bathroom plumbing. There is a lot of spent fuel exhausted and radiators drained into the toilet there and it suffers about 500 flushes over the 3 day event.

Sunday is repair and recovery day when all the coolers are drained and cleaned, tables and chairs refolded and stored. Debris such as cans, bottles and papers are picked up from the lawn and lab. All my cars are moved back into the side yard from a friends house via relay driving. I put 15 large green trash bags into my pickup to take to the dump. (I had to fend off the yellow jackets from the trash cans. They discovered and loved the soda can residue.)

I finally crashed late Sunday afternoon about 4PM before supper and got about 2 hours shut eye following the the day's cleanup and reorganization of the house and lab.

It is a lot to do, but worth it and I hope to do it again next year for the 19th
time.
