Lost in Space fan, Dan Schroeder stopped by the EID facility today.  Dan is a guide and guest speaker at the Wright Museum in Laconia New Hampshire as well as a Transport Captain. The Wright Museum is an educational institution dedicated to recognizing and honoring the contributions and enduring legacy of WWII-era Americans.

Dan lives in Laconia NH, grew up in Lynn MA and was in Lynn today as a guest speaker.  He had to stop by and see the Chariot. We had a great time checking out the progress, trading ‘Lost in Space’ stories, and could have talked all afternoon.

Thanks for stopping by Dan.

    Hey John, what a cool project, you guys are doing an amazing job! First time I saw this I just skimmed through, it wasn’t til I had a chance to look more closely that I saw you’re in Lynn, I’m just up the coast in Danvers and never would’ve guessed there was a chariot being built so close.

    Too bad you didn’t get an earlier start, this past winter would have been the ultimate road test!

    Keep up the good work!

      Hi Chuck. Thanks for the note. We do have some footage of us going over the record snow we had. I backed the Snowcat off the trailer and headed for the closest snow bank, without signing for it. It was a blast.

        Too funny! If you’re not keeping as a surprise until completion, I’ve just got to ask: What prompted you guys to build a chariot, and what the heck are you going to do with it?

        Looking forward to more updates!

      Hi Ralph! Thank you for your comments. I agree and isn’t that the best reward. To get as many LIS fans to experience the Chariot once again and revisit those great feelings of adventure and optimism.
