Hey...wait a minute...I was at field 6 totally on time waiting for you guys. Then I get a call you were at a different field. That's why I was late.

That was a decent cruise. Thank you for organising. It was also a pleasure to meet fellow enthusiasts.
If the next cruise is definitely this month, I vote for Bear Mountain on Sunday, the 28th of August.
