That's where we'll be.

Sorry Jynx, a little too far as we will be spending New Years Eve with Airstream friends in Temecula, CA. Sounds like fun though.

I would love to be there . . . . but we will not be available on the 1st until too late in the day to make it to Milwaukee. Maybe if my wife decides her family is making her crazy & we should leave (really) early . . . .

See you Saturday, Jynx.

Leave some extra room in your car to take my kite bag!
Keep calm, and park it in the pocket

:thanks: Thanks to Jeff and Wendy for making the trip "up north" to the Cool Fool Fest! :revspin:

With winds gusting over 40 mph, and temperatures below 20 degrees, you are two Brave Souls! :mrblue: Crazy and FOOL-ish... but Brave!

It was GREAT, Jynx, and even though it took me the rest of the day to warm back up (*grin*), I'm planning on be back with ya next New Year's Day. :)

Fantastic start to the year...
