    The Meet-Up was highly productive. The visit I paid to it was my first; it would NOT be my last.

    I there began work on an electrical device to agitate coffee grounds in a cold-brewing coffee-making machine. I had known that it would require the use of angled gears; those I found in strippages of parts from radio-controlled vehicles. But alas, the gears were lubricated with toxic greases that would have POISONED the coffee thus being cold-brewed! It went without saying that NO food processor should RUIN whatever food it might be processing! The gears that would actually be used might have to be specially ordered for the purpose.

    Another participant in the droppage-in of do-ers showed interest in my project. Jake, his personal name. He promised to do his best to work up a CAD, a computer-assisted design, of the drawing for my project.

    I would return, the following week, with other gear that would be needful for my project.

    I checked the address provided; it proved to be that of the University City Science Center.

    I had never before visited, but was VERY interested.

    However, I wondered whether the parking lot at 38th and Market Street was pay-for or gratis. Whoever could answer THAT question got thanked in advance.

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
