There are a few streetlighting enthusiasts based in my area on here and GoL but we haven't really met up. I did meet up with Streetlight98 when he was traveling in Ontario a few years back though.

I'm going to meet Eric (@BT25) to pick up some vintage MV bulbs tomorrow.

Nice! So far I have met up with Dave (Silverliner) and Rick (rlshieldjr). Hopefully I can meet up with the other LG members near me that I haven't met yet.

Good quality things are awesome. Bad quality things are not.

- I will not use eBay for rare lamps right now, I let the others get them, unless I really need a lamp for a light that I have. :)

I believe MTSL lives in Kansas City, MO, USA just like you do. You can meet up with him sometime.

Thanks! 8;) Just hoping he sees this! 8) ;)

Bought a Venture 400w MH lamp today, believe it or not I never actually owned a universal 400w MH. Also picked up some new 6v lead acid batteries to replace the dying ones in my emergency lights. I find after 3-5 years, they'll no longer hold a charge and have to be replaced.

Found a 175w MH and 8" circline at the Restore.

In terms of lighting finds in the wild, I found a canopy with a few recessed lights that looked like they still had 100w MV lamps in them.
