Yes, all kidding aside, I thought you did rather well under the circumstances.

We made it to my place around 4:00 or so. After unloading my stuff and TerryO's and taking a short break from the road, Terry and John headed home. Nice day for travel. Hope the remainder of their trip is/was at least as smooth as the first part.

Thanks so much to Dave, Ruth, and Chris for accommodating everyone again. It's always a good time to see old acquaintances. We all enjoyed ourselves immensely. Food was great, and the weather was perfect.

Until we meet again . . .

I am now also safe at home. Thanks so much to everyone that made my weekend enjoyable. I had good time with my last bit of Saturday night out in the Jimmy Buffet zone with you know who. I'm sure glad I planned for a day off tomorrow.

Sure was nice to see Dave so chipper after hearing/reading all the horror stories of his ordeal (and Ruth's and Chris'.)

Sorry Scotty. I told my wife the story and she asked why I didn't give it to you. I don't listen to her very well though. I would really enjoy working up an amp with you if you decide to go for it.

Best to everyone,
John

Ruth will have some, but may take a day or two yet to download - she's got a pretty full dance card

I have photos but I prefer video now-a-days. See my thoughts on the event here: YouTube

Thanks again for such a good time. Was really fun and look forward to putting those alpair 5s to good use. I'll test them in the fall and have a video about that too.
