oh, i remember.. thats how a lot of people are.. when we gained a momentrum heading to the g2g, then when it comes really close everybody backs out.. i dont know why not thats how it is..

I am really impressed with Floridans as they have their g2gs no matter what. perhaps we should join them?

Hey guys, just got back home. Let me just say mapquest sucks! We decided to go down to Wilmington and come back by way of 74, and we made it in 3 1/2 hrs. I have no idea why mapquest said the fastest way was 85 to 40.

FocusStrider: I did remember that you said you wouldn't be able to make it. What happened to everyone else is something that I would very much like to know.

I am aware that we all have busy lives and that sometimes we can't do all that we would wish. The purpose of having a sign-up was to help everyone to check their individual schedules and see if they could make it. If they could, then I waited for them to respond back before I put them on the list of confirmed attendees. If you couldn't make it, no hard feelings there, I would just make sure not to count you as an attendee. The problem I had was the fact that people did respond back that they were going to attend. This indicated to me a firm commitment and only then did I put them on the list. However, when it came time for the G2G, only three people showed up and two of them were locals! To make matters worse, we purchased enough food to make sure everyone had something to eat and we barely used any of it.

I don't want to give up on having G2G's, but I must admit I am very disappointed in how everything went down. When we plan the next one, I hope that everyone who signs up will be able to make it. In the future though, if you sign up and something comes up to keep you from being there, please let someone know so we won't have a repeat of this one. Again, I'm not angry with anyone, just dissapointed and a little frustrated.


On a lighter note:

Lawrence (Rabbit):
Good meeting you man, it was fun hanging out. I'm sorry about you having to go in to work, but I definitely enjoyed it. The backdrop for the photos this morning was way cool. As soon as I get them downloaded, I'll PM you with a link so you can see them. Tell your wife we enjoyed meeting her and your cute little girl. If you guys ever find yourselves headed to Charlotte, give us a call. Hopefully I'll have the parts moved out by then.

Israel (blk):
I enjoyed meeting you too, man. I know that little old lady that Dee met said it to you, but I also wanted to reiterate - thanks for serving. Protecting liberty isn't easy, but being willing to do it takes guts. I have great respect for you for that. Maybe next time Dee and I are out that way, all three of us couples could meet for lunch or something. Say hi to your wife for Dee and I (by the way - hope she liked the Sprite )


Well the trip was a little tiring, so I'm going to bed. I'll try to get some pictures posted tomorrow. Good night all

Hi, I'm new to focus fanatics. My name is Brandon. I would like to get in on the g2g around Charlotte. Maybe we could just meet up at a restaurant. That way no one has to cook or whatever. Let me know if there is interest.

I did get the pics downloaded to my computer today, but I haven't had a chance to post them to an online album yet. I know I'm going to have to do some adjusting to them because some of them came out a little dark. I bought the new camera in December, so I'm still learning about all the settings. I'll try to have them available before the weekend.
