Once a year, the New England Wireless and Steam Museum holds the "Original Yankee Steam-up".  This year, it was on September 30th, and a delegation from Team Unlimited was on-site, examining historical high-tech, both vintage steam engines and radio equipment.  In addition to the museum's collection of steam technology, many additional model and small standard engines are displayed on the grounds for the annual exhibit.  The website of the museum is at http://users.ids.net/~newsm/.

In every generation, technology makes strides, with the changes coming even faster today.  It is both useful and interesting to observe the cutting-edge technology of yesterday, inspiring the future engineers of Team Unlimited.  We all had a great time on a beautiful fall day!
