    Got in about 8PM. I left Baltimore at 11:30 this morning, so it was an 8 1/2 hour trip back.

    It was a little slow going out of Mayland and Delaware, but after that it was fine. The minute I hit the Jersey Turnpike it was a parking lot. Was like this for about 10 miles, then it was fine until I hit the toll booth at the end of the Jersey Turnpike. I hit New York City traffic big time. Crept from the George Washington Bridge all the way to exit 3 in New York, however it was fine the rest of the way.

    I tell you, comming back into Connecticut, while it was fine in my direction (Northbound) Southbound was a parking lot from New York City all the way back to exit 70 in Connecticut. WOW!

    To give you an idea, my exit is 75, and from NYC to exit 70 in CT is about a 2 1/2 hour drive at 70 mph! I bet those people headed for new york had no idea what they were in for!

    I was very impressed with the trip. I had the best time I have had in YEARS and I mean that. There were a lot of neat people, and I definatly plan on attending next year.

    It was definatly worth the trip. I was also very impressed with the way Robo had everything planned down pat. (He even went so far as to put the hvac-talk logo at our tables at the crab fest! LOL!) Seriously though, not one single flaw, everything went as planned.

    I would like to thank everyone that made this happen, including BC1 for covering the deposit for the crab fest.

    I look forward to seeing each and every one of you next year.

    Pat

    What was really funny was that Steve "refertech" worked so hard getting things together when I got hung up with my moving and getting acclaimated to my new job, and then he passes out on Friday night and misses the Harbor cruise

    Hey Steve! Did anyone happen to use the term "wimp" to you after that? Wellllllll, they did on the cruise

    It wasn't really a bad trip home, I kind of expected to hit NYC traffic really. I thought abnout leaving Baltimore that evening, but I'm really glad I left early in the morning and had the drive over with before dark.

    It was all well worth it. I had an exellent time.

    As for the term "What color do you want", you guys embedded that in my memory, I will probably think of you guys every time I hear it from now on! LOL!

    I will post some pics as oon as I am up to it, right now my ear is bothering me so bad I can't really do much of anything besides lay around. I may not even be able to go to work tomorrow :-( Going to call the dentist and see if I can beg and plead for him to get me in sooner than next friday, or at least see if there is a miracle pain killer.

    Try a plastic bag over your head, in a while the pain will go away. Just kidding??

    Now i'm not kidding, your an OK guy. You got a little nervous and jumpy but once you got used to us ( not an easy thing to do ) you are a nice guy to talk to. My daughter says she hopes your tooth pulling goes well, she's worried for you. I'm looking forward to seeing you at next years convention, but no sooner (only kidding about that last part)

    Oh and talking about pictures. How did those nudes of Dice, RoBo, and Beencool come out, post them so everybody can see.

    Well get your teeth fixed and relax. Bye

    Went to the dentist today and got a prescription for Vicadin. Seems to help a bit, hopefully it will be at least enough to make things dealable until next Friday.

    BTW, your daughter is a sweetheart :-)
