Yep; made it back fine since......."thinking is the best way to travel"* :lol:

Thanks to anyone who posted "real time" 'fest info. Perhaps we should all spring for an official "Carverfest roving reporter" who would do interviews, post daily reports on everything going on, etc. at Carverfests. He (or she) would stay at the 'fest and of course have all expenses (including travel!) paid for by the forum. Me, me!; I volunteer for the job next year! :lol:

Yeah, we made it home safe. Oh boy do I have a story to tell. Two actually. Too tired to post right now but I will say this........there is NOTHING more important than experience when it comes to driving.

I hope everybody made it home safe. We sure did enjoy our time there this year. More later folk's.......

Made it back, no problems.

A doctrine fostered by a delusional, illogical minority and rabidly promoted by an unscrupulous mainstream media, which holds forth the proposition that it is entirely possible to pick up a turd by the clean end.

Got home safe and sound despite the driving rain. Hope our Georgia friends are all OK. Over 15 inches of rain in a day in N. Georgia. Had a great time as usual.

Hi all made it home this morning about 2:00am! Eddie!
Don't waste a good opportunity to shut up!

Good judgment comes from experience, but experience usually comes from bad judgment.

The best thing is to learn from others that have mastered the one thing you need to learn!

I would tell you to go to hell but I already work there and I don't want to see your ugly face every day!

Pat and I make it back, very late on Monday night, 3 hr delay in Charlotte. No luggage when we landed in Ottawa it got lost.
Hope they find it soon, my Sunfire faceplate that Bob signed was in it, not good. :-#

Now my worst news, my mom had a stroke on Monday around noon. She is in hospital in Montreal on life support, not expected to make it. Off to Montreal now.

I made some great friends at CF09, I was planning on posting to thank everybody, but have more important things to do at the moment.

My thoughts are with you Brian. That's how I lost my mother.
