We got home about an hour ago. All is well here! Drove through one hell of a rain storm to get here though!

Home around 7:45 pm. Convoyed with Brad, Paul and Andrew. Dinner at Appalachia Brewing Company in H'burg. Caught up with Sean Hansen and Alicia Bascilici on the road in Quakertown and convoyed with them til the 287 split in Bridgewater, NJ. It was a great ride.

Got back pretty early today (by 5) seeing as we didn't hang around for the giveaway this year. Throwout bearing crapped out just before arriving to the hotel late Friday but the car made it back without any other issues besides squealing like a pig headed to slaughter when you pressed the clutch... :cry: Oh well. Could be worse. It was nice taking the time to meet and chat with more people this year than I have in the past. :)

Yea, we talked about that a couple days prior and from the data I had, nobody was driving more than 1000 miles each way. Apparently my "data" was incomplete! :oops:
