Ok guys it is getting close the the GFMPH.  April 15, 16 and 17!  Were getting very excited have quite a few that have comment that there on the plan to attend.  This weekend I will post the names of the confirmed people.  If your name is not on the list and your are planning on attend please post a note there.
I am hoping in a wk from now I will post a few activites that I am hoping that will be available.  The most important part of the gathering is for us to get to know each other to bond those frinedships that we have started here on line.
Bronson is going to arrive a bit early to assist in the food prep. :)
Worried Guy and his Wife are schedule to arrive on Thursday.
As far as I know everyone else is arriveing on Friday.
Trailer Trash (Sonny) is stopping of in New Orleans to pick up Clearwater Cowboy and his wife at the airport then motor on in the Baton Rouge.
Will give more info later.
Pat has been working on the scheudle for the ladies.  There going to have a wonderful time.  They will see parts of the state so many don't get to visit when passing throught.  I think she has scheduled 4 Plantatnion home schedule for Saturday with lonch at one of the homes.
If they dont run completely out of time she wants to take them to the largest plantation home on Louisiana. 
See you guys in 6 wks.

You guys who enjoyed GFMPH Northern style will appreciate this. It was about 20 F today and with the sun from yesterday, the snow has frozen solid so it is possible to walk on top of it. For the first time in I don't know how many months (3-4?), carrying the 'more than 5 pounds' rifle, I went outside in the woods where we had the fire. The tables, chairs, and the full spray tank (now frozen solid and probably with broken valves) were sitting there buried in snow waiting for spring and the next event. It has been 5+ months and your butts were the last time they cradled anything warm. The scene seemed lonely and a bit surreal.

I am so ready for this event. My butt needs warming!

See you in 6 weeks.
