lets meet as early as possible, to make sure we have time to run after the work is done...I would suggest no later than 10 is a good start time.

Again:

Has anyone checked the Farmers Almanac to see what kinda weather we are supposed to get?

Just an idea... they are more often right than the blasted forecasters at Environment Canada...

I'd hate to start my drive in the sun here in Ottawa, and get there to find it leakin' that Haitch-Two-Oh-no on the park. Ya just never know with that witch Nature, eh?

Well...

I googled for weather, and got this from the Old Farmer's Almanac site:

JUNE 2013: temperature 15.5C (2C below avg.); precipitation 110mm (30mm above avg.);
Jun 1-4: Sunny, warm east; showers, cool west;
Jun 5-22: A few t-storms, cool;
Jun 23-28: Sunny east, scattered t-storms west; warm, then cool;
Jun 29-30: T-storms east, sunny west; cool.

Their map shows 'east' being Toronto-wards, west being Thunder Bay-wards.

Old Farmers Almanac Weather

So... the Clifford show may get wet. Are there plans if it rains?

unfortunately if it rains theres nothing we can do about it. we can set up the trucks on tables under our tents but thats about it.

I'll be there either way.

Dont sweat it Mario, I know you guys would be there if it wasnt like half a days travel each way lol.

we still have a few things to add, like the areas at each end for the factories, and didnt you want an area to play in the dirt? let me know and we can add it. Also want to add working traffic lights at the center intersection if time / money allows.

We have also planned for a parking area where we can put our trucks.

I did not know you were taking pictures, and you have not yet received my expressed written consent to have my picture plastered all over the interweb.....my legal team will be contacting you shortly! and yes the road looks good....but there are all these little white marks on the blacktop, and my tires come to think of it...

Thanks Shawn. Not to worry bout the dirt area, I was planning on bringing them with us. What is the roadway thickness by the way?

Ohh, and by the way, Mike, Dwayne ...if you keep talking bout lawyers, the next thing ya know we're gonna need RC insurance to run on the Clifford track! Lol
How much is the deductible for a twisted frame wreck??

The roadway is 3/8 sheathing. Underneath we are going to join them with 1/2 inch pieces

Also I ordered a traffic light controller today for the intersection!
