I wish it were in my power to make it possible for every Patriot who reads our III blogs to get together in one spot, shake hands, break bread and talk. I have not yet found a better vehicle for building morale and cohesion than physically meeting one another.
The group here in Idaho is wonderful, and even though Holly and I were forced to spend most of our day and evening off the mountain taking care of other chores, the Patriots at the Beachhead made the most of their time together. Fortunately, H and I get to spend almost all day tomorrow and Sunday with the fine folks who made it up here, and we are looking forward to making new allies, friends, and perhaps even adding a few new folks to our ever-growing Tribe.
If you wanted to be here, please do not beat yourself up. I know many of you were simply unable to make it happen. In some cases it was money. In more cases it was the inability to get the time off work (even though the meet-up is on the weekend, driving to and from adds days to the event).
Holly and I are making it our business to get our there and meet everyone who wants to be met - we'll get there. In fact, we are looking forward to it on levels I can't express.
I'll try to post through the weekend, but if I am scarce, you know why.
Stay safe, Patriots.
