Well, the Florida crew will be leaving in just a couple of more hours. I scooted out of work early today and will be at the airport to pick Mike up tomorrow and after a quick load up at my pad, we're off as well. Folks that are not attending, prepare yourselves for a mighty slow forum in the next couple of days....once we are all settled in, we'll update you with all of the brew-haha as often as we can. It will help greatly that WS12 actually has internet now. That's where all of the computer geeks stay. :-#

Y'all drive safe and remember not to tailgate.....especially those with gear stuffed in all corners of the vehicle. 24 hours from now, the hardcore crew will all be there sippin' a cold one in the beautiful mountains of North Carolina! Man, it just can't come quick enough...

Everyone Drive safe and have a mind blowing time! I am all packed and ready,,,to un-pack and cry! :lol: I hear this year there is more then just the Chicken flavor Top Romen and all attendee's need a good ear cleaning for some skinny tall speakers!

Don't worry about me - I'll keep posting around here and then answer all my own post (I pretty much do anyway) but maybe there will be a Birthday or new member :lol:
