If I were home, I'd give serious consideration to a road trip (from Ohio).
That's one of the models I've always thought was kinda cool, due to the
writable control store. I heard a story once that one of the DEC engineers
wrote PDP-8-instruction-set microcode for it as an exercise. Internal
lore held that it was the fastest PDP-8 ever made (dunno if it ran more
than FOCAL and paper-tape programs, though - interfacing devices would
be a bit of a hassle, I'd expect).
