Pinball Machines are my slice of heaven

I haven't really been talking about my travel experiences and  for that I do apologize. So i'm gonna do my best to steer back in that direction. 


In two weeks we are going to Ann Arbor Michigan to go play some pinball machines for three days. Its been a few years since we have been up there so I am really excited to go back. They have over two hundred pinball machines that are fully functional and you get to play them for as long as you want. Really it is a dream to be able to play them. There are machines that I have never seen before and for my father and I it is like a little slice of heaven.

A few years ago we played a pinball machine called Apollo 13 and when we got back my dad heard that there was a machine in the area that was for sale. He quickly grabbed a chance to go see it and got it on a huge sale. Now it is in our home, fully operational an in its full glory. Of course if we hadn't played it at the actual pinball place we would have never bought it when we got back home. The machine itself is made by sega and usually the machines aren't all that great. The game is normally very simplistic and they play very different then the William's and Bally machines. 

Luckily we both had agreed that Apollo 13 was different. So now it is in our care and a part of our family. I'm hoping that sometime soon we will be able to get more machines and grow the collection ever so slowly. I would love to have that happen. 

For this trip I will be videoing this experience and sharing it with you guys. This place is amazing and it deserves to have a video made about it. Its beautiful and I love being able to support a place that puts everything they can into making sure these machines stay functional for many years to come. 


To help support the trips to come please check out my artwork. I have plenty of pieces that are for sale and we have so many trips coming up in the next few months. Thank you all so much for your support.
