Sounds like you all had a good time. Wish these things didn't happen on the week I am gone every year
so that I could attend. But here I sit in a Washington DC hotel room after a day of wandering around
Arlington Cemetery.

Perhaps next year I can work this out, many names there I would have liked to meet in person!

Brian, if Gil and Kareene make this an annual trip we can make it happen. 8)

Just wish it was a weekend earlier! The first weekend of October is probably always going to be a trip
to the Waterford fair in Virginia. Perhaps next year I'll start the trip at that, then go elsewhere site seeing.

I think the timing will depend on Gil, originally we planned the fest for the weekend before, but things got pushed back.

It was a real shame I couldn't make it this year! I'm in the process of moving out of my house, so there was just no time for a commute to Erie, PA. But it sounds like you guys had quite a blast! Did you bring your 330, Jeff?

Hmm, I didn't even notice. When you get past a certain age nothing matters, anymore. :lol:

Yeah, for example, Ivan is now up to 800 posts and he didn't notice that. 8)

Looks like great fun,and a fabulous assortment of instruments. I was looking for that potatohead 8stringer amongst them. ( or am i attributing that to the wrong owner?) i would have loved to check out the '64,and the 21 fret job....
