The Gathering

Most of us have arrived at the Norfolk staging area (The Hampton Inn) and are getting settled in for the night.

Sailorcurt has outdone himself in the art of being neighborly. Curt met us at the airport with a large enough van to handle us and our luggage, drove us to dinner at the Lone Star Steakhouse, and then delivered us all safe and sound to the hotel. He also has dinner set up for Sunday. I have not been in Norfolk in 28 years and Curt's helpfulness is appreciated.

After dinner we headed over to the Holiday Inn (the Hampton has no bar) for adult beverages and a bit of blogger fellowship. I ducked out early because it's past my bedtime, but did stick around long enough to see Tam and Joe arrive.

In the morning we hop on the Blackhawk bus and are on our way to Blackwater.

It's gonna be a good weekend.
