    I'm definitely headed up to the Iowa gathering and if those are the dates nailed down, I'll request the time off work this week. I'll hopefully be flying out of the Sanford, FL airport on Allegiant Air, as they had some pretty good deals on flights to Iowa. I think Steve said to fly into Des Moines and put my thumb out and hitch a ride to the gathering site [​IMG][​IMG]. Seriously, I'll probably rent a car so I can run once I see the belly-brigade in person! [​IMG]

    At one time we had quite a few Iowans and others that were interested in the gathering. Tip had mentioned that we need to get a head count pretty soon to get sites reserved. We have about 6 members so far that are in. It's a great time and a chance to meet some of the people that we type with every day.
