    Ralf, Great post. Thanks for the kind words.

    It's nice to see family helping out with the photos. I used to ski Camelback in my yout, nice.

    Wow, 4 boys. You have your hands full. Your oldest looks like a serious song writer/musician. A cross between Elvis Costello and Morrissey from The Smiths.

    Re: The travelling Vostok, who wants it?

    Awesome! I'm glad is making his way around the country again.

    I'll put my name in the queue-- the wife will be working in Deadwood, South Dakota over the July 4 weekend -- Vlad with Mt. Rushmore and fireworks might be cool, though I don't want to budge over someone who might be somewhere more appropriate for that holiday (NYC with the Statue of Liberty, or D.C., for example...). Also I'll be in Slovenia/Croatia/Italy the second last week of August -- if I got Vlad on, say, August 5, I coudl take some lovely Utah pics, and then take him with me to Europe for a second European tour, if there's interest.

    Just putting all of that out there. ;)

    Here's a picture of Vlad with some friends and relatives, from left to right: Pilot Berkut chrono (31681), "Sivka" the Frankendirskie (2414A), Vlad, Sekonda alarm (2612.1), Strela chrono (3133).

    Here's another shot with most of the lights off (8 second exposure) after charging the lume. Vlad hasn't got much I'm afraid.

    Vlad's NATO is too long for me. Rather than make new holes, I took the (temporary) 18mm home-made strap off the Berkut and put it on Vlad (the Berkut now has the strap it came with, but shortened) to try him on.

    Vlad is running about 40s/d slow, so if no one has any objections, I'm going to regulate him. No beat error though, and the amplitude looks good.

    Re: The travelling Vostok, who wants it?

    I forget what the rate and amp. was when I fixed him. I have notes somewhere but I'm dealling with a nasty summer time head cold and feel woozy so I'm going to pop some pills and go back to bed.

    Sometimes regulators move in transit. By all means, open him up.

    Re: The travelling Vostok, who wants it?

    Haven't had time to open him up and regulate him, but here are some pictures from this morning. The horse in the first picture is our stallion Mogly.

    Excellent idea. Only I suggest each addressee to add the hours a vintage. The person sent 1 piece to travel and through certain time will receive 20-30-40 и.т.д. I am ready such rare Commander to add.Name:  101_6856.JPG
