I am old enough to drive, but live too far away to do so. In any case, I will not be going to the MAX this year since my wife and I had made other plans for that time.

But, I have already booked my flight and my hotel for the SOS.

See you all there early next year!

Tom,
I am all signed up and paid for the MAX. Unfortunately, business takes me to the other side of the planet for the week. I am really disappointed but it is the job that allows me to enjoy my collecting. I am registered for the SOS, hotel and air. Same as last year Tom. This one is firm. Sorry I will miss your good company at the MAX but will be thinking of you guys from Kuala Lumpur.

Book your room soon Tom. They became available at SOS prices quite some time ago. Do it soon.

I talked with Tom Wittmann and tables are picking up as it is less than two months to M-Day. If you need one or two, call them up.

I would be broke if I even payed have gas lol. There's always next year anyway. I don't have enough to buy what I need anyway. All my money is all planned out on another thing but they are good deals and rare so I can only blame myself for not having money...

Man I haven't gone to a MAX since the Carolina show [God that was horrible!]..
Well going to make this one!. Coming with the SOS crew, myself, young Master Vincent, Tony SScloth, and pretty sure [hopefully]Johnny L.
Going to be great to see my show buddies, Kris L., MilitaryNut & wife, Davis,and the others.
Most of us don't even really collect anymore unless its something super special. So keep the countdown going,,,we're going to have a great time!!

I saw Paul Today. Below is a pic of him talking to Bob Clark.

General observations from MAX 2013. The crowd changed noticeably:

- Many more people from the Far East.

- Many more Russians

- Lots more guys brought their wives along this year.

- More low grade being brought in by visitors.

- Slow day with only the great items getting second glances.

It was fun seeing many members and friends!

I took pics even though I told myself the heck with it!

Many people came up to me and thanked me for the pics from befor and many folks I didn't know!

So I did take lots of edgeweapons pics and some special items some of our members wanted to share!

I gotta resize and then post! But I did see Waffen SS general Zepp Dietrichs Knights Cross with Diamonds!

Weitz had it on display! Wow!

I talked to many old friends and saw lots of nice edge weapons!

Here is a tease of Bill Warda Wait till I show his goodies!

What a great guy and I made a special effort to thank him for his work on forum!


Tom

I hear you got some great daggers! Can't wait to see them! Sorry I didn't see you but met the guy you were with!
