That was a damn good time, great to meet JSBriggs face to face, share a beer, laugh about the Internet wars we wage, etc. Also great to see Jeff B (Nomar) too. Obviously the rest of you...well, the truth is I'll miss the camaraderie for the next few years but I have little doubt it will be there upon return.
Cheers
Ray

This was an epic HH. Sean was there with his newly repaired LR3 sunroof. Dro reappeared and of course, JB from VA and the other JB from CA. Doug C. AND Yvonne. And of course all the usual suspects except for Galpin. We had so many people that Shelby needed to call in reinforcements.

That's a scary looking group of ugly MFs. I would rank that as one of the top HH we've had. Really great to see everyone. It was like a mini event without camping and wheeling. Well, a little like camping since we were in a tent.
Thanks again to everyone who helped and offered to help bail me out.

That makes it sound like a much more exciting night!
Call the bailbondsman!

Nice to meet you Grumpy Bill.
Also, good talking racecars with Russel and we know some of the same guys.
And great to meet CA Jeff aka JSBriggs.

If Barry flies in and Josh drives down...I'm on a plane too!

Ditto - weak Defender turnout but great HH otherwise.
Nice meeting the Jeffs and catching up with others. Kudos to Ron for letting me comb over his D-90 and admire the work of Safari HP. That is one clean Defender. Surprised at Gustavo's weak stick. He needs to upgrade. Burger's MK1 would be a nice starting point: http://www.swordcane.com/mk1b.htm

Picture looks gay. Briggs and I are arm and arm and my beer is on Lav's head.
Good time. Glad to hear you guys don't normally have that much fun, wouldn't want to feel like I'm missing out.

I'm glad I'm not the only one who thought that!

Sorry I missed it - was in Cozumel at the time.

I think it's time we made an effort to get a nice defender lineup. The weather is good now - what other excuses do we need to overcome?

Since when is it NoVa Land Rover Defender Happy Hour? They ALL count! Just you Defender owners don't want to drive them when it is too cold or it might rain or...
