Looks like a wonderful time had by a great bunch of people. Thanks for the video edbeteze, it is great seeing faces to go with the folks I already feel like i know from the forums. As i stated during the planning, the dates conflicted with the Colo. Saddle Makers Winter Clinic so that didn't work. Then just to make sure, the fates decreed that I report for jury duty on the 4th of January connected with a grisly murder trial . We finally ended with a hung jury (11 to 1 for a conviction) and a mistrial this past Wednesday, the 9th of Feb. Nearly 6 weeks wasted, and the Colo. taxpayers get to pay for the entire thing again. Pretty frustrating. I thought about just getting out by myself on the weekends, but we have been having a seige of cold here that is a little more than I care to tackle at this stage of my experience...20's and 30' below at night with one night making it to -40, and just barely "warming" up to barely above 0 in the day (yes that's Farenheit for all the Celsius folks). It's finally starting to moderate a little now though, so maybe I can make it happen soon. One of these days I'm going to get to make one of these hangs!!!
