It started when I was a kid.

Dad had a ton of Marklin European HO stuff he brought over with him from Holland when the parents immigrated to Canada.
Eventually I found myself messing with N.
Then a bit of HO.

Then I got married and interests were directed away from trains.
Got divorced ten years ago.

Bought five acres of land after I got into trucking with the idea of building a small cabin for just me...
with the idea of using the land as my layout tabletop since the key word of the cabin was "small".

Got remarried and found myself back in Canada looking at On30 in her house, since I had gotten the narrow gauge virus.
Then came the decision to bring the wife unit to the US (Canada is too damn cold for me).
Found myself in a tiny apartment while her immigration papers were processing.
Became interested in 1:35n2 in part because of your work.

Now that the wife and I are hoping to close on a house next month that sits on a 1/2 acre tree covered lot...
I'm once again planning on going back outdoors with 1:20n3...
though I'll continue with a small 1:35n2 indoor layout in the spare room for when it's too hot or cold to be outdoors.

That's my story. :)
