I'm showing up mid afternoon tomorrow. Friday night is a promised nice dinner out with the wife, otherwise I intend to hang out at the marina where I'm parking my LB22. My cell is two one zero, then four one five, one, one, eight three. Gonna get up in the morning, and ...

I believe I'll dust my broom Dougster

I arrived yesterday evening. Will go out this AM to explore, we are supposed to have a "bateau" table somewhere. I will give a presentation this PM at some Community Center but I have to locate the place first. Will go to the marina, Farley Boats and the museum. I am wearing a white long sleeve bateau meeting tee-shirt and a red bateau cap for those who have never met me.

Well, looks like my trip was cut short. My truck started losing power just as I entered Austin last night....screwed up a lifter and possibly a rod. Good thing is that it's still under warranty.

I have paid for a slip for the weekend so if anyone wants to use it please feel free.

I am here at the Show. There are about 40 boats here so far and more are coming. I am the only Bateau boat here. There is a Bateau banner at a pavilion with samples and coupons but I haven't seen Jacques or anyone else.

The show was great today! Not sure who all will read this but I am at Mickey's in Aransas Pass if any of y'all want to join my wife and I for dinner. If not I'll see you guys in the morning!
