Thursday night at Neel's is a great part of the Gathering. It's a great time to see and laugh with our old friends. For the new, it's a time to meet and be met by new friends. You really get to learn what a community this really is.

I spoke to Craig today and he would like to take one of the HB "double decker" rental boats out late Thursday morning, anchor somewhere fairly close to the marina, and have people come out in their boats for lunch. He is thinking about grilling hamburgers and hot dogs. Of course cold beer and soft drinks will be on board as well.... He is thinking about a quiet cove somewhere and lining the sides of the rental boat with swim noodles for fenders. I think quite a few people are arriving Wednesday and others Thursday morning. Sounds great to me so I told Craig I would post his idea to see if there is interest. Naturally "Spaghetti Dinner" is still on Thursday night at Land Cabin #7. Comments?

It looks like y'all are going to have a great time. I am out this year. I burned most of my PTO on moving. Lots of well wishes to you all in your journeys!

Neel:

Sounds like a good Idea to me. Don't know what time I'll be rolling in on Thursday, but if I'm there, I'd like to participate.

We'll try to get there, Thursday, in time. That means leaving at rush hour. And, getting Lauren up that morning. Most of all I've got to go make sure the boats ok and cleaned up.

Don't make the boat too clean people will think you haven't been using it. I took mine to our condo last week he is not running right . I ordered adapter to hook up to the scan tool . Does not have a standard OBD2 connector . Seem to use a lot more fuel than normal and would only rev to 3200 RPM . I told Paula yesterday this sucks we have four boats and three are broke down.

I have faith in you. For anyone who can rebuild "Innocense" after a fire, engine problems are a walk in the park.

I still have to clean up a boat and learn to fly this new Quad-Copter. I'll probably make chili next weekend.
