Another question - if we arrive Thursday evening, will there still be greeters and parkers - or at least someone who sees us coming up Airstream Drive and points us in the right direction?

One of us can't get out of work earlier...

Tom, I am sure we will be able to take care of you. Just call me on my cell when you are close if you are real late coming. At 8 you will have no problems. You know Beth and I had a similar issue once before an event. Ended up missing the entire day. One of us had the unfortunate issue of a stomach flu the very day they could not get off a little early. My doctor told us that a long drive would help a great deal and sure enough by the time we got to the event we had originally intended to go to early, we were all better.

The last time I ran I88 south from I90 it was real bad for waves and bumps. How's it now?

Last time I drove 88 it was smooth as can be. I have never run it, so not sure about the bumps and waves.

Frank, Sorry to hear your Killer happy hour idea failed. It worked out great at Crawfish. I guess I will just save the meatballs for Fridays Potluck and just do Guacamole each night for happy hours.

Question: Do we bring only sides for Saturday Nights dinner?

The trailer is ready. Now I have to pack it. I am hoping to be out of Missoula by early afternoon and 5 hours down the road by this evening. See you all on the 24th.

Nick are making those meatballs again? Oh, man Nick makes the best meatballs I have ever tasted. Those would be a great contribution to pot luck or happy hour.

theCatSandi, Hopefully some time on the road you check in. Safe travels, we will see you in Central New York.

8 MORE DAYSsaying that today is soon over and the day you arrive does not count. That's how I'm counting it at least....

It is with great sadness that I inform you all that I will not be going to the Bash, this year. I selfishly held out until the last moment in hopes that I could somehow make it, and I apologize.

In addition to my family's health issues I just got rid of my primary tow vehicle which leaves me with my old wagon, which works great, but has not been prepped to tow on a trip. I need to perform a little maintenance and one repair before I can tow Dagny with it for 4 hours.

I had been working on a Caravan to The Bash and to those that pm'd or emailed me, I apologize for not getting back to you. Rob gave me the name of a good diner to stop at on Route 23 just past Catskill, which I cannot find now. I was going to drive up there to investigate the parking, but never got the chance. I'm afraid I bit off more than I could chew when I offered to host a caravan, and I apologize for letting you down.

I look forward to attending The Bash II next year.

Speaking of bringing stuff, does anyone want some counter trim. It's 8' long pieces, 7/8" front with a 3/16 overhang on top, bright aluminum finish or bright gold. I can get it in Home Depot in Canada $10 a piece. I've never seen it in U.S. Home Depots. Let me know soon

Question 5 pole flag holder

Thinking of bringing my 5 pole flag holder that I bought from Rob, never used, to sell. I even bought a bunch of flags, including NEU, but never bought poles or installed it.

I really like the idea of flying flags are events, but didn't realize it has to be tinkered with to install (drill holes, buy metal loops to fit around hitch post), and we are just NOT handy or confident for stuff like this! Makes sense, there are a variety of post sizes out there, you don't want holes all over it. We never even attempted to install, so it is in new condition. Unbuffed (not shiny), at my request, but can be shined up with the correct tool.

I'll bring it with me, very heavy (well made!) and expensive to ship.

Let me know if you might want to buy it - OR maybe install it for me!

Skip -

I'm really sorry to hear that you can't make it and hope that your family health issues are resolved quickly and with a good outcome.

No worries about the caravan. I do hope to meet you sometime soon.

Best wishes,

John
