At last... CBR

Sorry for the delay in posting about the CBR. I am writing this from San Miguel in central Mexico. I have taken a small break from my vacation to post.

Well this has certainly become the theme of the weekend. Do more, see more, live more. In that order and any you choose, a great motto to say the least.

Anna got her self a few more water decals during CBR. The caravan here was probably a highlight of the weekend. I just could not wait to put the decals on.

The Rodger's farm is a great venue for a rally. I am not sure of the numbers, but there must have been close to fifty that showed up for the gathering.

Much time was spent sitting around and relaxing. Many stories were exchanged and a few new friendships were formed. It is kind of hard to not enjoy ones self meeting so many nice people.

Happy hour helps those that have trouble relaxing to slip into the mood. Good food and good drink have that effect on a person.

A killer potluck also helps set the mood, even if your table is the last to be called to go through the line. Plenty of good food left even as we went through.

Another highlight of the weekend was getting to know Dale "Pee Wee" Schwamborn. Dale we gracious enough to spend many hours talking with me about his travels and about the club as he knew it from the early days. I got the impression that he was very pleased to see his mother's vision of the club kept alive with the WDCU. Thank you Dale for the time you spent with us and myself in particular. Hopefully there will be a campfire the next time we get together. Dave, it was great seeing you too.

We did manage to make to the Museum of Natural History. The crowds were huge but we managed to see the fabulous gem and mineral collections. Rocks do come in some incredible forms. I was very fascinated to see the displays.

We managed to push our way forward to see the Hope Diamond. Nice rock, but not as interesting as I thought it might be.

Thank you again to all that attended the Rally. Hope to see all of you down the road real soon. In the mean time see more, do more, and live more.

It's great to look back over the CBR week. And even better to see you and Beth and the kids again. You rock!
