Y'all should really come out this year. No particular reason why. :baby:

Just thought about this. Haven't been able to get in here for months.


Anyone up for dinner? Friday night is easy, Saturday night requires me to take a few hours off of work but that's not an issue at all.


Can we get the band together again?


Oh yeah, P25 Phase 2 sounds like shit :baby:

I would prefer Friday night since Friday at the 'fest is only a half-day and I'm less likely to be a sweaty tired wreck, and since it looks like it's just us, Friday night it is! 7:00 or 8:00 is fine, either one works for me.

The schedule is weird this year... 4 hours on Friday then full days on Saturday and Sunday. Also you can't reserve or pay in advance for tailgate spots, it's first-come-first-served. It's like they have a whole new management team who only conceptually know what a hamfest is supposed to be.

We will have to miss this, gosh darn it.

You all have fun and throw rib bones over your shoulders and be a general nuisance!

Will you or Rick be at the fest at all?

Also I'll be hanging out on 441.100 DMR for the weekend.

Might not have forum access on my phone, but I sent my # if something happens. Me and the wife at 8pm at Big Bone Mamas.

Easy enough size to see everything quickly but big enough for the manufacturers to show up.

I think I spent $40. Got one of the $2 LCD TVs and a $5 VHF china radio plus random crap.

Sorry to have missed you guys. I worked the tailgating parking lot Friday morning but had to go out of town after that.

Maybe next year.

Good to get to see Jonathan and Mongo (who actually bought more crap than I did) again. Friday and Saturday were solid showings, but a lot of people didn't go back on Sunday (myself included... I spent the day across town with the weeaboos.) Highlights of the weekend for me included photobombing the DMR guy's webcast and driving around old town Plano looking for a mythical BBQ restaurant only to end up at Braum's.

After two weeks of low carb, your post sounded really fucking good :baby:



I suspended the diet for my NC trip. Ain't no way I'm not enjoying the food I really crave. If Jonathon is reading, I dropped 21lbs in 13 days.
