    I plan to be at this gathering..

    I would love to meet a lot of you so if you are not too far away and can swing it then come on and be with us. I can tell you from past "gathering" experience that this is the kind of thing that you look forward to year after year and once you come one time, you will be back. It is truly a blast and the most fun you can have in 3 days.

    I'll go for that.. I was in Lake Charles for about 5 years between 1994 and 1999 and while I was there, I became addicted to crawfish. My oldest daughter will even suck the heads[​IMG] but then she started that when she was about 2!

    I know.. I can't believe you guy have done this for 5 years! I am planning to bring my youngest daughter so you might want to plan on a few extras.. she's a skinny thing but she can eat more than I can. That girl eats non-stop and that's no lie.

    Wish I could do that!

    Well Sany and I are planning to attend barring any unforseen happening.  I think all the kids are married.  No more grandkids on the horizon that I know of, and still working. 

    Hope to meat all the new and see the old friends again.  P.S.  I still dont have a camper and am not to proud to turn down a bed.  LOL

    Jerry,

    I'll let you know later whether we'll do a tent setup or just grab a room in town.. I'm gonna buy an RV one of these days but I gotta wait till I get my kids out of school, college, and hitched. I figure I might have some money left over after that.. probably not but I remain hopeful!

    That is true.. I figure if I can drive all the way from no man's land, Oklahoma, then everyone else can get there too even if they have to fly[​IMG]

    Seriously, from what I've been hearing from other folks who have been to the N. Florida gathering.. you don't want to miss it for the world. Family friendly, lots of food, wonderful people to mingle with, I'LL BE THERE.. so what more can you ask for!!??

    Turn in your vacation request today for April 8, 9 and 10 and enough time for getting there and getting home.

    Like Jerry says all the time. You'll are welcome and believe me he is a great host and Karen too. Now it's nice to hear that you are coming this year Jeff. I'm giving up a possible induction to the Florida Skateboard Hall of Fame to come again. That's how much fun it is.
