    you had said "ocala", which is a city in florida. the acela is the train from boston to dc. the downeaster runs from portland to boston.

    and to go back to the original post, i'll bet the expo is all about the digital.

    Richard Ritter and I went down 2 years ago, driving to Fairfield from Vermont and taking the train. It was an adventure.

    The show is almost all digital and a lot smaller than it was in the late 80s when I manned the booth at Zone VI, and I think that the "real" photographers and their equipment suppliers have quietly headed for the door. That's why Richard and I no longer go.

    On the other hand, the Javits Center is mere blocks from B&H, and a pilgrimmage there is worth it.

    In the end, a tough call. Were I to go, Javits wouldn't be first on the list...I'd arrange to visit MOMA, the Met, and B&H, I think, and be a "photo tourist."

    Photo Plus Expo isn't until like November! Isn't this too pre-mature. Just a thought.

    I went last year, and it was mostly digital. I felt I was quite out of place, but the free film from Fuji & Kodak made it somewhat worthwhile!

    For those interested... the Valley Photo Center is sponsoring a bus to NYC to coincide with PhotoPlus Expo on Sat Nov 4. The price is $40.00 for non-subscribers (to Portfolio mag) and $35.00 for subscribers. The bus hold 54 passangers and there is about 47 seats left at this early point.
    The bus will leave Springfield at 6:45 am and the return trip back from NYC will leave at 6:00 pm. You don't have to attend the Expo if you don't want to. many of the VPC faithful just use Javitts Center as a drop off and pick up point.
    If you want to reserve a seat on the bus, please send a check to:
    Valley Photo Center
    1500 Main St
    Springfield, MA 01115

    If you have any questions, please contact Chris Marion at chris@valleyphotocenter.com or just PM me.

    Gene, thanks for the heads up on the bus...I'd spend that much on gas. I'll check with my better half and get back to you.

    Got my pass sitting on the piano waiting to go. It's local for me so I might wander over 'though I suspect is mostly digital.

    If APUGers choose to gather somewhere at the time - I'd be interested.
