Fantastic! It'll be good to see you two! David F. is even coming, though he's driving out directly from his shift at Parkland on Friday afternoon, and returning Sunday night for a Monday AM shift.

What's on the set list? Mack the Knife? Come Fly With Me?

Well, we found a remote location, but unless you are addicted to your cell phone, you can't help but love it. It was a great weekend with good friends, as HOTC events seem to usually be!

We had some happy hours.


Sometimes happy hour lasts longer than the light. It never seems to be much of a problem.


It takes a panoramic shot to even get an idea about how nice this campground is.


We even had beautiful sunsets to cap the great days.

Damn, wish I could get to Idaho, get the Argosy and Jeep out, and join ya. Lets see, 1200 back to Idaho, 1800 or so to TX, then 1800 back, then 1200 back to phx. Might be a tight schedule.

How about a portable hot tub too?

You all enjoy yourself.
