Dean,

I'll be there when you arrive. Got your regular spot, waiting for you.
Look forward to a great week of friends, imaging, and great weather!

Heading out the door shortly. Have a few stops along the way.

Everyone have a safe trip, and see you soon.

Dean

I'll be at Crowley's tomorrow, but in my car. I'll bring the motorhome down Monday - I replaced oil cooler hoses on the RV, and they have defective fittings, which I can't get fixed until Monday.

Had to replace the engine oil cooler on the motorhome - and the one sent was defective. I got one from a different source - arrived today - and I'll install tomorrow. I'll have to change the mounting brackets, which will be time-consuming, but if I get it done in time, I'll be there tomorrow, if not, Friday.

Based on the weather here (60 miles NE), I've not missed much - I unloaded the astrogear from the coach today.

Ouch, Cotts! I was going to go to Chiefland but finances changed my mind. I was there in '03 and '04 when Tom Clark had it on his property. I got some nice sharp images plus some rare aurora those two years. See you at Okie-Tex 2013?

I left this morning around 10:30; by the time I got to Chiefland itself, it was totally clear!

Hear, hear, Dean!!!! Good times under gray skies! It was great to hang out with you and all the rest of the gang!

I love how people in this hobby look at a situation like this, shrug their shoulders and say, "let's have a bonfire, a couple of 'sodas' and swap some tall tales...."

Yup, I had a good time despite the clouds. Hopefully the weather will be nice for the Winter Star Party.
