Well, we are ready!! Let the fun begin.

I have some of the most awesome friends in the world! Could not do this Fest without you!

Thank you from the bottom of my heart, to Tim, Billy Ray, Raymond, Jim and all the members of my family. You guys are great!!

And to all of you that are just about ready to hit the road coming to Florida. Please drive carefully and defensively. Remember, we gotta do this all over again next year. :||): :||):

The hats from last year said it best. "Old tractors collect the best people".

Melissa and Nick are moving into our house for about four or five days so Rosie and I are looking forward to another fun filled weekend in the deep south (Tell your committee to work on that weather a little harder). We should cross the Florida line some time Thursday morning after a Georgia layover Wednesday night.

Heck, I am in Fort Walton Beach since Yesterday will head to Sneads Monday. Only 160 miles to go.

Well, Bill, my friend. I can't ask Billy Ray to do much better than this. Hope it sticks.

If we allow Billy Ray do his work , it should work out fine. :D :D :D

Well I almost, almost made it. Had the inquiries to use my points to fly down but we canceled that when Amanda got diagnosed with MS. Just too much going on and I can't get away. I was looking forward to seeing one of the few States I haven't been to yet and getting to meet all our southern Cubbers. Maybe next year, we see.

You all have fun down there, enjoy the fest.

Sorry you are not going to make it this year. Hope it works out for you next time around.

Looks like we are going to have another good turnout. We will miss you. Maybe you can give us a call during the weekend and we can chat a bit about whats going on. :lol:
