SOmeone told me it was a pack and sleeping bag...Yeah right....I hiked half the appalatian trail thirty years ago (and I still cant spell it) ..my camping days are over...(Well until I take my daughter to hawii in May and we hike and camp around Molokai..but i digress..I havent told the wife about that yet either shooot)..So the hilton is looking spendid. Specially if I bring she who must be obeyed.

Okay, I have my reasons so bear with me:


For this gathering...

Will it be the INAUGURAL

OR

the FIRST ANNUAL


There is some discussion whether they are both the same or whether the
Inaugural would be the first, and the First Annual would be the first anniversary of the inaugural.

The answer to that is "Yes."

Gee Whizz Steve, EVERYONE knows it will be the FORTHCOMING, and then the 2nd. annual then the 3rd. and so on and on. How hard is that????

Yes, you WILL need the camp fire to dry yourself off, FOR SURE.

See you there my FRIEND.

OK Guys. I need a bit of help here.
It looks like about a 780 mile trip from home (Waukesha, WI).
Given the (mis) adventures pulling the boat the last 2 summers, my wife Teal, needs some encouragement. Yes, there will be articles about disintegrating wheel bearing in downtown Cleveland and rearranging the trailer axles in Kentucky.
So how many are bringing boats vs flying / driving in?

The only disadvantage to fall vs summer is the kids will be in school (they did help on the boat build a lot).

Bronk,

Really Glad you're thinking about it. I'm trying to get up and running by then. Boat or not, Please come. Bring John some pictures!

A lot of your thoughts on your web site sound like me. I think we'd have fun. Even if you're a potential future SNOW BIRD.

We just had to set a date. We thought we need people time to get their build done or far enough to bring.

Yes, and we really did at first not know what the off season would bring compared to the peak season.

I'm really glad you're thinking about this, Mark. There are very few people I'd rather see attend. I can say this that, come hell or high water, my both Zip and my teardrop will be there.

Bronk, I think everyone that even has a boat (that has been reading this thread) will bring it. Many others that dont have the boat yet will fly in/drive. Would love to see your 50mph furniture there.
Do you know of any other Rivieras that could/would make it?

Falcon, I had a skiff over in Subic Bay, Phillippines. Very similar to Sweet Caroline, I got very fond of those skiffs. A navy Chief built a Sweet Caroline there, it was real nice hull. I look forward to seeing yours.
