Type on the Cob II with Ladies of Letterpress

I've just recently returned from Type on the Cob II, the 4th Ladies of Letterpress conference, in Mt. Pleasant, IA. We decided to make it a week-long family adventure/road trip with a 10-month old baby in tow! We made a few stops along the way there and back, visiting small towns and odd museums, and had lots of picnics. (One of my favorites was The Museum of Appalachia - stop if you're ever passing by!) The conference itself was fantastic as usual, with plenty of presses running and ink flying. I was lucky to be ably to spend most of one afternoon at a Linotype with Tim Fay of the Wapsipinicon Almanac. I love hot metal, starting from my iron casting days at East Carolina U. Baby Milo was a real trooper and will soon be a road warrior like his dad. I'm worn out and don't want to see the inside of a car again for a long while.
