  • Terry drills a hole in the roof of Jim & Tarry's coach for the XM antenna wire.
  • Several helpers look on.
  • Jim tries to find the wire.
  • Oops, might have drilled in the wrong place.

Gee, is Terry really that much better with the Segway than with the drill?

Great picks Tom. Just a note to let you all know how much I enjoyed the company these few days at the Q.  Sorry we had to leave before much of the action takes place.  However, the wife is a country girl, just not that country, according to her.  We got about 20 miles from our turn off and darned if she didn't say  Really a  lot of nice people there and we could have stayed a couple more days.  Women   I'll never understand, especially this one. If you don't believe me, ask Smoky and the Admiral. It certainly was a pleasure meeting everyone and conversing with the same.  Wish the wife would have been able to produce more of her floured creations instead of just a couple.  Maybe next year.   As on now she says no but the way she changes her mind, who knows.  After all she said she hated Arizona and 5 days later she bought a house to be built.  Like I says who knows, we'll probably be there, it's just all knew to her.    Again thanks to all for making my time at the Q a very memorable one and the knowledge of meeting very nice people.

Nice comments Shayne and a credit to all the attendees and organizers (I take no credit as I was merely another attendee). This really is a great group of folks. Wish we could have spent more time with you both, but maybe next year.

Hi Shane,I spoke to you when you visited the reunion of our Mexican Caravan folks. I am sorry not to have met your wife.  Yes the desert does grow on you and al women are entitled to change their minds! I hope to meet you again next year when you can stay longer..  All the guys were   envious of your trailer contents.  Come back soon with that surrey with the finge on top!

Again thanks to Ron , Tom and Betty for the kind words.  even the wife now is saying she had a good time. She mainly doesn't like the wind, she's very susceptible to sore throats, so I do understand her fears.  Good combination she all bundled up and me running around in shorts and T-shirts at 30 degree weather. As for as the trailer is concerned, I'm just sorry I failed to fully equip it, but believe me it will be properly arranged next year.  The surrey got it's work out today doing running to take care of details for the new house and getting setup again for  the next 2 months here. We hope to be able to drive in on Saturday and get together 1 more time this year.  So what time is the pot luck?  Again thanks for the great time.  Great seeing the pics.
