Quote:After driving 1900 miles to RMSS from NYC, had a great Saturday night. Real dark, good transparency and increasingly good seeing as it got later into the night. Met some great people. I am back in NYC, but looking forward to moving to Aurora CO in 2 weeks. Plan to join Colorado Springs and Denver clubs!Joe
