Once again, another great convention! I just wish I had been able to go on
at least 3 of the 4 field trips Friday! The Sandhills trip was a lot of fun
in the mud with some really cool and new-to-me fishes. The speakers on
Saturday were great. In between speakers, we had a chance to watch the
meerkats right outside the door, too. The auction had lots of cool stuff,
and I even won some of the stuff I bid on!

The only bad part happened on Sunday, on the trip to Charleston with Chip.
About 30 miles out of Charleston, I got a flat tire on my truck. The whole
crew stopped and helped change the tire in record time, though. I think
we're ready for NASCAR next time!

Notes From Mrs. Ranger Bob:
Lets not forget to thank "Mrs. Chip" (a.k.a. Vickie) for manning the
registration tables while all the folks were out playing in the
creeks. And having the lectures-in-the zoo was great. That way we could
listen a while then go see the animals, listen some more then go to the
I enjoyed meeting more of the ladies this year and getting to know each
other better. And I got to meet Sweet William.
