Lynette and Gerry Nikkel of Abbottsford B.C., are actually making their second trip to the Insulator Ranch, but this was their first Insulator show. They were kept busy checking out all the sales tables and display racks, and were much impressed. They enjoyed meeting several of the collectors and I saw them buying some purple insulators at one of the tables. I believe they are well on their way to becoming serious collectors. Actually, they had stopped by the Insulator Ranch 2 years ago, and we spent some time touring the field and talking insulators. They were supposed to attend the show last year, but were unable at the last minute to make it to Merritt. They seemed to enjoy their day in Merritt and the company of the other collectors. They'll be back.
