|LR Bob & Dave|
Bob was treated to a Virginia Lunch at our house by my wife Gaynell. Bob and I then did a 2 hour tour of our area that included the "Bugbook Historical Microcomputer Museum" and our "Chantilly Festival Farm" . It was about 3:30 PM however for Bob's California time it was only 12:30 and he took to the road to get a good start on his 2700 mile journey to Sana Cruz, CA.
Update - My wife and I visited Bob Rosenbloom and Lyle Beckley - in October 2013 after they had purchased computers from our collection - great visit we also visited the Computer History Museum while in CA.
Bob arrived today and here is a few words about the journey in his own words, 8-9-13
Video of Bob's visit in his words
The Systron Donner Analog computer weighs 800 pounds - a forklift was need to get this on the truck.
Easy fellows, this is important cargo.
On the truck - easy with the right equipment.

WOW it was great to load these computers for a new home and Bob is sure excited to have them for his collection. Bob really likes the vintage minicomputers and other large antique computer memorabilia. I like all this also however I am working more with the historical Microcomputers. All of our staff are delighted to see these computers go to a new home where they will be treated very special.
