The Countdown is on!

Not many of you know, but Wouter and I have never met in person. We've been chatting online for probably 3 years or so, and have talked on the phone twice. Of course some people may start thinkin weird crap about chatting with someone on the net, then finally meeting them after 3 yrs.

The even weirder part of it all, is that I met Wouter's parents this past summer, which was very cool. They were travelling over here in Canada and passed through town. Henk (Pieter) even tricked me into eating raw herring.

Well, we're finally getting together for our first in-person "executive board meeting". He's flying over here next week for the NAIAS Press days, then we have a few days off the next weekend before him and I fly to Palm Beach for the Cavallino Classic.

6 Days to go. (I hope Wouter knows what 2 feet of snow looks like, j/k)
