I'm north of the Border again.

I crossed the border last night and got home safe. The gal at the border had quite few questions and it seemed like the more questions I answered, the more she came up with, but at the end they let me cross without paying any duty or taxes on the Rods and bearings I bought from Adney Brown.

This whole trip was a lot of fun; traveling with Nevs, Thndrchckn and Schmitty, as well as meeting all you guy's at the seminar.

I just want to Thank every one who was involved with this and helped making this a great event.

Tomas.

Depending on the actual date, April or May hits me right in the wheelhouse for my farming gig, so that kind of leaves me out. Doug is trying to make arrangements for the Bash for him and his family though. 8) You sure you want me to show up anyways. Remember the Bash is a weekend long deal, and you might fall asleep. :shock: Although I was not part of the artistry on poor Seth, I was more than happy to broadcast it. :lol:
PS, Seth, I was under exteme pressure to post those pics, there were a couple of guys that made me do it. 8)
