Hate that I am not going to be able to make it happen again this year. Just checked air fare and it's not way. Oh well, one more seat for someone whom can make it. Enjoy all and I look forward to seeing pics (whatever may be posted).

Man how I would love to go, but it's probably best for my wallet and my sanity that I can't.
