Typewriter Convention Travelogue 3

Repairs to the Alpina are complete; the last consisted of gluing back in some loose soundproofing pads inside the ribbon cover. Now it's ready to go. I sure hope that someone gets a lot of enjoyment out of it- and I hope whoever gets it doesn't already have one. In fact, I think I'll make that a set criterion.

I have satisfied most of the requests for typewriters that other collectors might like to see, but I've also included a couple of surprises that are sort of wild. Not your run-of-the-mill typewriters. Several of them are "only one in captivity" examples!

Now I've just got to finish laundry, put together a travel bag and shaving kit, finish writing out directions, pick some outfits to wear, maybe get some dinner, and then get to bed before 1:00 AM. Yeah, right!
