Yes. I wasn't able to get BabyDoll, the cabin cat, home with me and that it is over.

Yes, not getting out to everyone's cabin for visit/listening time. That week everyone is at CF goes by so fast! I'm glad I got to hear the systems I did, but wanted more time to listen to Ray's M3's, Marks Open Baffles, and those incredible electrostatic panels that Charlie built (in addition).

All in all, an amazing trip to CF for Maureen and I. We shared a wild rainbow trout I caught on the Nantahala River our last night! The rivers were beautiful to be on fly fishing despite several unsuccessful fishing trips.

Not hearing Mark's open baffles. Never have enough time to spend with everyone. Not being able to make coffee as good as Randi Atkins.
In reality, it only matters what it sounds like to YOU!!!

Randi thanks you for the coffee comment. You just need to be there longer. Tammy told me she was hoping for at least two weeks next year. :-"

No regrets really. Just takes so long to roll around each year and then over in a flash. Of course, I guess i do regret falling, like an old man, and messing my shoulder up. Thank you so much to all of my wonderful Carver friends that helped me during my onearmness!!

Regrets??? I feel for those poor ribs. They didn't stand a chance when the grill caught fire. This is after it called down a lot...
