If you want to follow me over the hill, let me know, otherwise I can provide easy directions ... will you have a bike?
Thanks for the offer - I suspect we'll go there directly from wherever we spend the day though.

We're not on bikes on this trip, we've got a nice little hire car ... a Mercury Grand Marquis

John and wife (CindyLouWho) have been pretty sick lately so I don't know if they will be there or not.

Another couple of friends of mine will probably be there though. Janet (version6.1) told me that she and her S.O. Hillzy are planing to be there.

Getting close to Miller Time.

Bump-ditty-bump and see y'all there.

I'm bringing an empty stomach, so nobody make fun of how much BBQ I pound down tonight.....

All right Ya'll. Here is the pics of the turn out tonight.

Good Q, good company, lots of talking and BEER.

I would not do justice to try to put names to these pics as for some reason i can remember the details of strict specifications but can not retain a name one minute after it is said.

It was nice to meet Kenny, NCbub and wife, nugentch, Dave the lawyer (not on board yet) Swiss army watch guy from TN (sorry the name thing again) Anyway, heres the group. I think the turn out was good and we should consider a replay.

Mike (black t-shirt standing on the left of last pic for those as name challaged as i am )

Mike thanks for posting some pics. Great turnout, we had about 22 I think. (math is hard) Very little beer drank but for some reason everyone in those pics looks red faced and sloshed

It was nice seeing some folks that have been around for awhile and meeting a bunch of new ones. We might as well do it again.

Looks like a good time.

One question, though. Who's that ugly sumbitch in the orange, sittin' next to the beautiful lady in blue? Don'tch'all know you're not s'posed to let nasty bastards like that close to your wimmens?




















ps: DeeeeeWayne, I tried to wheelie up your street, but wheelies are tough when you're still on full choke.

thanks to Dewayne and Kenny for getting this together.

Nice to meet all y'all, and like Mike 96, I can't remember names worth s%&$. So nice to meet everyone I did meet but can't remember their name.....

I hope we'll do it again

Mel it was nice meeting you. Kenny and I talked yesterday about doing it again next month but maybe go somewhere we could talk OVER the music.

Anyone have any ideas where they would like to meet?

Where to meet...............Hmmmmm, if you like BBQ try Hawg Wild in Brevard! I would come then.

I think that coffee houses like Mountain Java make nice meeting places as well. Just a thought.

Glad the turn out was good. Looked like you guys had a great time.
