Highlight of today was a long and great conversation with John Currie. Such an amazing guy! Lots of awesome and innovative components are coming our way.

Tony from Nextgen was in the lower lot, multi time hammers racer.

Enjoyed talking with Will and Corey from Metalcloak at the CTI trailer. Missed Matson.

Didn’t wait in line for the Lite Brite crew at Bilstein, but cool to see them in person.

I miss the South. I left my heart there when I left Fort Campbell. 💔

Nashville on the weekends was fun. So many memories. From there down through Georgia. God if I can only turn back time. 🙏
I know that exact feeling. I miss the south too. When were you and in Ft Campbell and unit ?
89-91 Pathfinder Det was such a unit to serve it.

2000 to 03 1st 502 Infantry widow makers. Here's actually a picture of me messing with my buddy from Kingsport. I think we were training down in Fort Polk 🤣

Dam where did the time go? ⏲

Ah the good times we have and remember. 101st has so much history. Always heard good things about the 502. Definitely need to come next year to this event. Will have a Rendezvous With Destiny.
Find a local watering hole and have a drink and swap Army stories.

We acquired these last night going from the Bullfish grill back to our hotel room.
Best rolling Jeep show around.

Grabbing breakfast at the sunliner diner, than heading to the CTI trailer.

Yeah, cool to see Lite Brite again, but not gonna spend hours for a photo op and a signed sticker. They're fun to talk with at the smaller e3 events, but billstien and the new demon child are keeping them too busy for that.

We should all pick a meet up spot and time. By now, we've had plenty opportunities to check out the vendors and mop the drool off our chins. Someone call the play and I'll run it. It'd be cool to put faces to the usernames.
We’re gonna stay down in Gatlinburg today and hit Annikeesta. My wife can only take so much heat and crowds.

I should be able to get us back up this evening if everyone wants pick a spot on Parkway to watch the cruise together.

I'm definitely down for that! We're also done with the crowds and got a chance to see everything. Meeting you guys is certainly something to check off the list. Let me know where and we'll make it.
