I guess I should have stated... I didn't remember a defined place to meet being mentioned. I still think I'm going to just go to the campground and get set up... build a fire and relax.

In theory, theory and practice are the same. In practice, they are different.

That detail seems to still be up in the air. My vote is for the Happy Moose place. But I'm flexible. I want to hang out with the majority and get to know people. Not sure I'll feel like camp cooking that night. As for relaxing - bah humbug. Although at my age, my definition of "partying" might be relaxing for some people. I can't or shouldn't do what I did in my Navy days any more.

I haven't mentally accepted my age yet.

Well... I have a few years on you sir... accepting your age is inevitable.

My goal is to meet everyone also... but I don't drink. If it gets decided that people are going to meet at the Happy Moose... I will probably go to hang out with everyone. If you decide to party like a sailor Eric... I will get you back to camp as your DD.

I won't even try to party like that any more. I have become more "responsible".

I will camp Friday if the weather isn't going to suck. Have all kinds of camping gear that I rarely use although this weekend my daughter and her husband borrowed it. The little girl who came with me on my first couple of runs now has a two-year-old daughter of her own. I did camp for two nights at the Ford Nationals in Carlisle.

There is a Rehab right across from the Happy Moose so after the bar brawl it will be within crawling distance. :beer:

Yes but I had to back off a little the last two months. Found two bone spurs in my shoulder. Started physical therapy this week.
Last year at the NHRA races at Charlotte. I had already done three when my wife started shooting.

I’ll be camping and have a +1 with me. Bring my portable grill and coffee and stuff. I’m down with going out Friday night for a meet and greet if that’s what everyone wants

Anything worked out yet for Friday night @Jim Oaks?

I like the sound of the moose place personally.

Ok. I'll be the first to give a 99.9% commitment on this. I am going to the happy Moose place Friday night. Period. Anyone else wants go there, then get your butt over there and we'll eat wings and drink beer and talk about Rangers and furnace pooping and hurricanes and 2.9's and whatever else comes up.

"Face to face forum" at the Happy Moose place
