Dang it Bert, couldn't you have picked a better time? ;)

As much as I would love to hang out with my favorite Commie, prior commitments forbid it.

I know this isn’t an opportune time because lots of people are leaving. I missed seeing my cousins in North Montana for the same reason.

I wish I had some time available Bert.  Dammit, sorry man.

Heck.  I really wanted to meet you too.

Especially after hearing about the visiting riffraff in the area.

For the longest time, I thought Nate Silver was qsilver from our board.

I’m going cancel the Detroit leg of my cross country trip.

I should’ve rationally thought out the difficulty of trying to get with people at a time of the year when they’re characteristically gone. I should probably do this in the spring or the fall of next year. 

As it is I’ve been able to nail down another three days at Lake Tippecanoe relaxing, which is not something to feel too bad about.  

As it is, Indiana to Vermont to Maine and down the eastern seaboard to Florida and back to Idaho is still a pretty darn good trip.  And I will see the Tigers at Tropicana Field. Whee! 

Anyway thanks everyone for thinking about it.

That’s an awful lot of driving miles Bert. Don’t push it. I got a rush of fatigue just reading your agenda.

It would be really good I think if there were a MTS gathering of sorts in Detroit next year for a game or two. Myself included, there are a fair representation of seniors on this board. I’d personally like to see CoPa before...well, you know. Maybe that could be discussed at some point. I’d very likely be up for it.

That sounds like a plan.  Be careful though, suggesting something like this. This place can end up being like a church. You suggest something and suddenly you’re in charge of it.

A few years back my eldest was laid off, single and up for an adventure....and we did something like this only in a compressed time frame.  MI - MA - GA - TX - CA - WA - MI - 19 days and about 8000 miles.   I didn't get in a car for 2 weeks after we got home....lol....One lap of America and my **** was wore out.

I hope my sudden departure to the Cayman Islands didn't influence your decision.

I think it was when you said you didn't want to go to the Blue Oyster bar

Crap, I screwed up and liked the posts from Biggs and G2 instead of yours. My bad. What’s done is done, though.

Critics argue that Biggs is the Rod Carew of MTS. Racks up a lot of Likes, but they question whether his posts pack much power.
