Hi Big Al,

Sorry, no story to submit. I just registered today, this is my 1st post (insert sound of cork popping). Sure liked that hat tale ! (do I get a vote? wink )

Anyhoo just posting to let you know, I'll be a first timer as well. I'm gonna be there w/ my family in July ... Sat 7/19 to Sun 7/27 ... perhaps we'll bump into each other? May have to do some logistics & meet for a beer. Maybe I'll get motivated & start a thread about it: July travelers ...

Just wanted to dip my feet in, so to speak, & say HI! to all. Really appreciate all the good info I've gotten here lurking about and searching for info off these boards over the last few days. A real good bunch of people here. In the meantime, see ya on the sands cool
