Home....finally

587.6 miles each way/Gas was over $4.29 a gallon...if you could find it in Cincinnatti/lots of trees down and they were just getting the power back up. Has anyone heard from Thall and his Misses? I think they might have run right into it on they're way home. I had a great time....what can I say? I had the pleaseure to meet and cook for alot of nice folks and a true Luminary of audio, how much better can in get? Bob.....damn, what can I say except thanks!!!!! I had the opportunity to put some faces to names I've been seeing here for the last year and a half. Jesse, thanks for lending a hand, 'ppreciate it Bro' ;-) Eddie, great work on the Prime Rib and the Filets, FrankieD great choices in wine, Roy and Mark were a huge help running errands and helping clean up the kitchen. James has wonderful children....we drafted all of them and I wouldn't have been able to get it done without Alex, Nicole and Jessica and his waaay better half Angelique.

Tom and James....it doesn't get nay better than you two/great job guys!!!

The systems were out of this world and the company was even better. Thanks for letting me be a small part of this group....

Re: Home....finally

Ray,

I see your point now, it's a good one with one exception....LOL

Man, can you cook! I still can't believe you managed to do what you did. My hat is off to you, sir.

Anyway, it was a pleasure to meet you.....one which I hope to have again.

Anytime, bro.

Re: Home....finally

Yep, came home to a bit of a mess Sunday.
The power just came on this afternoon. Still waiting
for things to settle down before plugging the stereo in.

We had a great time. Thanks to Tom, James, Ray and
most of all Mr. Carver. Without question, meeting and
spending some time with you was the highlight of the
trip.

Great seeing everybody from last year and meeting
those that made it this time around. Sorry I missed you
Dreamer and Steve Ford.

Missed you too Maxxx and Pam.

Re: Home....finally

U da' man Ray !!!! All your meals went off without a hitch (unlike someone elses) :(
I was really impressed with a few of the things you whipped up on the fly like you did...
I'll be copying youe rasberry/pancake for sure !!!!!

This years meals would never have been as good as they were without you there

Next year, I hope to make things alot easier for you, I felt really bad seeing you stuck in the kitchen as much as you were.
As much as I know you enjoy being there, I also know, it's NOT a "CookFest". I will do everything possible to make sure you have a little more "fun" next year.

My hat off to the best Chef I personally know !!!!!!!! Well done =D> =D>

Re: Home....finally

Well we`er home too, letf Greenville Tenn. 9 am and got here a couple of hours ago. Had Maxxx lock us out of the truck with the keys in it ,but that`s another story for later.

I`d like to say it was great to see everyone again and meet all the others for the first time.

Bob all I can say is You Rock.
Tom I dont know how you do it.
James I do know how you do it.
Ray If you are ever homeless you can come and live with me just as long as you cook. I`ll be your kithcenbitch. Never have I had so much good food for such a long period of time.

I dont think that I have ever heard soooooooooo much SWEET music in any one place in my life.

Jessie and Rainman I`m sorry I never got to hear your rigs but then there is always next year.

whiterino I hope you heard YOUR new amps on skips speakers, Ive been listening to them for 25 years and REALLY heard them for the first time at CF. You lucky SOB. AND yes you will not be allowed to attend CF`09 with out them.

Gas wasn`t that bad going home, filled up in Greenville for 4.09 and agaon in Clakes Summit PA for 3.65. The only place I saw 4.00 gas was within abour 3 to 4 hour of CF.

Got to get some sleep more later, can`t think straight. I know Toymaker "As usuall." Glad your home safe. (ALL)

Maxxx and Pam You missed a good on as we missed you.
