Picture number 78...TJ, I agree completely. Rather than being shot. How about a merciful be-heading.

Pat and I arrived home about 8:30 pm on Sunday night.  We were tired but it was worth it.  The weekend was great and, as always, we enjoyed the great people that make up this organization.  Thanks to Tux and to Dick and Jill for their work in making this another great gathering.
 
Thanks to Will and TJ for the great pics.  God Bless you all and we look forward to our next gathering.

Sorry I haven't had a chance to post any pix yet.  After getting home Sunday afternoon, I was at the airport Monday morning at 5 am and I've been working 15 hour days since.  I'm really looking forward to a nap on the flight home tomorrow (if they let me go home!!)
 
I'll see what I can do to get some pix posted over the weekend.  I was thinking about doing like Norsky has done for the annual gathering and putting together a collection of all the pix from anyone willing to submit.  If anyone is interested, shoot me a PM.

See my new Post on the Photo Collection for the gathering...
 
I had a really busy week after getting home, but I'm surprised I haven't seen any lessons learned, etc from the gathering...
 
1.  Full research is needed before visiting places found on-line.  The Wisconsin attraction noted on the map as "Bong Recreation Area" was not at all what I thought it would be.  Apparently some nature reserve...  Boring!
2  Things that sound dirty, but aren't neccessarily:
    a.  I was behind you and your rear end looks great!
    b.  Would you sign my stick?
3.  Getting the screen back in the hotel window after taking it out to take a picture of the cars in the parking lot is much more difficult than getting it out.
4.  Attempts to take pictures of the cars in front or behind you in a Caravan will often result in great shots of your Sun Visors
5.  Last, but not least - those jerks at GM killed the project for the car I knew I always wanted, but never knew they almost made - The 90's ZR-1 Convertible!! 
 
Speaking to Al and hearing those stories was incredible.  He made the offer for us to "Come back anytime."  I think we need to make sure that in 2 or 3 years, we take him up on it.
 
Thanks everyone who was a part of this event.  I know I had a great time and can't wait to see all of you again!
