I may end up camping this year. Jayme, when you check with them can you find out if it would be okay for us to pitch tents behind the cabins this year so that we are all together?

FYI - go ahead and make your reservations. They aren't holding any places for us this year though. So reserve now/soon. Because there will (hopefully) be at least 1 cabin occupied, we will have our group dining/general BS'ing there.

Sorry this has taken me so long to post - crazy busy work weeks. :5SHOTS:

Looking forward to the trip... it's a much-needed getaway.

:CAMPING: :JEEPIN:

Reserved a spot near the bathhouse (the "dusty area"). Based on the responses so far, am I the only confirmed attendee with a camp spot?

I have one reserved too, but we aren't going to make it. So I should probably cancel that reservation now.

Progress is being made, but as we suspected, it's a little slow going sourcing correct parts. Our shop is in contact with JBA now, so hopefully it'll be good in a week or so. Our deadline to have the diff back in our possession in order to go to ECS this year is tomorrow afternoon - that's simply not going to happen. :( After the mad rush to get things back together a couple of years ago for ECS at Black Mountain, we don't want to play the rushing game again and recreate a new problem.

We're gonna miss you guys too - we're pretty bummed about it. We did decide to still get out of here for the weekend (even though we can't wheel) - we're going to hang in the Wisconsin Dells for a couple of days instead. It's still not the same, but it's something. :?

Lots of pictures, guys... you hear me? ;) :mrgreen:

I just picked up a new camera tonight myself - not a GoPro but it will give us some nice stills and decent video for posterity.

See ya'll in a couple of days! :BANANA:

It would make my weekend of JavaScript, ERP and ITSM go a lot better if a few of those pictures were leaked to the masses (me) as early as possible. :D
