    Got home late last night; back in Atlanta, making up for 'lost' time... Don't know when i'll be able to post stories and pictures since about 1,000 of my pictures are still in California, but when i can, i will... However, i just wanted to take a minute to thank everyone i met out there... i had a really wonderful time...

    Jordan, thanks for letting me crash at your place; it was much better than a hotel and your folks are really cool... Plus, the chance to hear you play your bass was rarer than most of the cars in Monterey... Thank you...

    Mark, thanks... Um... For taking embarrassing pictures of me... Um... ...? No, wait, thanks for letting me download MY pictures on to your computer so i could take more... Yeah... That embarrassing pictures thing is something we'll have to work out privately, with large sums of cash... :) It was great to finally meet you... Next time, leave your camera at home... :D

    Rick Doria, it was a pleasure meeting you, as well... The food at your restaurant was great... Thanks for letting me giggle like a little school girl at your house while playing air hockey... Not too many people will put up with me giggling like a little school girl... :)

    L. Wayne Ausbrooks... What can i say...? It was awesome to finally meet you... i'm glad we had a chance to hang out as much as we did; despite my constant fumbling of facts, i still learned a lot... i look forward to picking your brain more at the next event... :)

    Rob Lay... Thanks for the t-shirt; thanks for asking me for bandwidth money when we met at dinner that night... & thanks for letting me wedge my fat ass in your car, so i could see what it's like... i think Jenny got a real kick out of how much trouble i had getting out... It was awesome to see you race around the track... It was nice to meet your Texas crew, too...

    Nika... Nika, Nika, Nika... Where should i start...? Thank you VERY much; for everything... Mike, too... i really appreciate it... i don't want to get into too much detail here, i'd rather save it for the many write-ups i have planned, but thank you... It was so nice to finally meet you... i've met some unbelievably awesome people on here and you're one of them...

    Mr. G. & Family... Thanks for keeping me updated; thanks for the laughs, the stories, the perspective, the whole nine... Where can i get a white suit like the one you wore to the FCA Concours...? :)

    Faisal... It was a pleasure to finally meet you in person... It's unfortunate we didn't have more time to hang out, but the ride in the TVR was awesome... It was like exposure to a completely different culture - and not just because the wheel is on the "other" side...! :D

    Bobafett, Vincent, Rob Guess, Henry Tran, Gabe and the other members who showed up to Jordan's very successful FerrariChat dinner - it was great to finally meet you all...

    Edvar, it was great to finally meet you and be able to chat with you... i look forward to more of that in the future...

    FerrariBoy & Co. - the only person on FerrariChat who's as cool as David is his dad... Now i see where David gets it from... David, it was great to finally meet you and your father... i look forward to seeing you folks again the next time i'm out in California...

    Peter Sedlak... Thanks for getting together with us for dinner and karting... Even though i was dead last in BOTH races, it was still a lot of fun... i'm glad i finally got to meet you, too...

    Jerry Slagle... Thanks for joining us for karting and thanks for letting us check out your car, afterwards... It's so unbelievably gorgeous... It was great to finally meet you and Melissa...

    Art, it was really nice meeting you and your wife at the FerrariChat dinner... i don't remember seeing you at any of the events, but i'm glad i got to meet you at dinner...

    Brigitte... Sigh... It was great to finally meet you - it's your camera whose acquaintance was NOT my pleasure...! :D

    John Houghtaling, it was great seeing you again and seeing your beautiful Countach for the first time... It looked like it just rolled out of the factory...

    Darth550... It was great to finally put a face to the name... i'm glad we had time to hang out in a relaxed environment - everything in Monterey was one thing after another... Thanks for the "other thing", too, which i'll refrain from mentioning until i can do a write-up on it... :)

    Mule... Thanks for the toy...! It's awesome...! It's already here in the office with my other stuff... It was also great to finally meet you... :)

    There are other folks as well, who would prefer to keep their privacy, like the old man by the F1 garages... That's cool... Thank you; you know who you are...

    i'm sure i'm forgetting some folks and i'll add to this as i remember them - please don't be offended, i'm just very forgetful... It was great to finally meet so many of you and reacquaint myself with so many others... It was really an awesome series of events with a bunch of awesome people to hang out with... Thanks a lot, everyone. :)

    The dinner was great. Diane and I didn't spent a great amount of time at the events, but we were lucky enough to have lunch with Jenny and Rob on Sunday, Lunch with Jim (after he took time to show me the details of his absolutely great car). It was a fun weekend for all, I'm sure.

    Hey Carbon, it was good meeting you and Jordan (albeit it was a short encounter!) at the Cannery Row. I couldn't join the fchat gatherings bec. I had to split my time bec. the wife and son were with me.

    Hey Carbon!

    Out of everyone... and I have to stop and think about the odds... but I saw you many times over the weekend. It was good to talk with you face to face, you're a cool dude. Hope to see you at future events!

    Hey buddy, I had a blast hanging out with you. Now you have to come out and check out my new dorm room. The college babes are plentiful *holds up "Id hit it" sign* :)
