    We finally found an apartment in Broken Arrow that we are happy with and will be moving in on March 3rd. The spare room for the layout is larger than the previous room so I'm hoping to add a module for the bridge over the Arkansas River. I will take measurements when I go back to the apartment on Monday. As soon as I unpack my laptop I will start drawing the layout plans using the old plans as a reference. Stay tuned the layout is about to come to life again!!!

    I went to our apartment Monday and measured the hobby room. The room turned out to be a little smaller than the one at our old apartment by a few inches. The new hobby room is 137 inches long and 130 inches wide (11'5" by 10'10"). Now if I could only find my laptop, it's in the middle of our storage unit. I didn't think that through when I was packing, LOL.

    It's been a month since I've reported on my layout, far too long. Today I'm going to move the layout from storage to our apartment. Found my laptop about three weeks ago but haven't been able to do any drawing. It's time to go to work.

    Well, it looks like my drawing days on my laptop are over. Yesterday I was working on the laptop and most of the drawing icons disappeared from the screen. Spent more than four hours trying to find them without any luck. I guess I will have to go back to drawing the layout on paper and colored pencils. Haven't had to do that since my Double Track Layout back in 2001. Now I have to find my drawing equipment!!!
    Oh No.

    Joe sounds like you picked up a worm from a website or email link. Time to put a good antivirus system to work.

    The laptop isn't connected to the internet Keith. It's about fifteen years old and has a history of strange things going on. I'm not that familiar with computer forensics so I may have to get an estimate to have it fixed. It is probably going to cost more than the laptop is worth. I'm not going to let it stop me from making progress on the layout though, I'll build the layout and then draw it later.

    About a week ago I assembled the L-Girder supports for my layout. I'm working on loading modules and should be finished by Wednesday.
