What's this, now?

I went to The Nova Albion Steampunk Exhibition this weekend to chat with a couple guys from The Neverwas Haul about using practical steam in Steampunk, a primarily aesthetic genera.  Unfortunately, I didn't have as much time as I would have liked to talk, but one of them (who's name I'm totally blanking on now) made me promise to blog about this project of ours to build a live steam powered rickshaw, based on the Vesuvius bicycle steam engine design.

I smacked my forehead and kicked myself for not thinking of that sooner.  So, here we are.  Hopefully Austin and Dale will post every so often as well.  But it is my goal to use this forum for documenting our journey from Computer Geeks with limited mechanical experience, to full fledged steam engineers with an awesome, home made, steam powered vehicle suitable for showing off at Maker Faire and the like.

This is just a first post to get the ball rolling.  The battery is nearly dead on my laptop, so I'll have to post a "Story So Far" later.  I hope you enjoy reading our story.  :-)
