    I'd be happy to pick you up at the Albany train depot. Do you know what time the train gets in? I planned on heading up to Portland in the early afternoon. Also, should I pack my jumper cables?

    :cheers:

    I'm so excited for this. I like never get all flustered by "famous" people, but I'm really, really excited to meet the voice of the Blazers, no offense to Travis.

    I plan on being there. But you never know since that's a dialysis day for me so it might be a little difficult getting there. Gonna have to drag my wife along since she's the designated driver. Actually she's always my designated driver since I don't drive.

    Since you're springing for the auto-lift in your new vehicle, I assumed you'd get yourself a self-driver as well. C'mon--you deserve it!

    A key family member of Wheel's is dealing with a potentially serious health matter and he wants/needs to be available to help out in any way he can. So rather than potentially having to change things at the last minute with the group outing, Wheels and I decided it best to hold off on going through with the evening until his family health concerns subside, which will hopefully be in time to reschedule things for sometime next month.

    I know that in talking with Wheels he is really looking forward to our group outing and he's sorry this has delayed that from happening.


    From Wheels himself, "I wish everyone a wonderful holiday season and a very Merry Christmas and I'm anxious to see everyone after the first of the New Year!"

    Total bummer. Really hope things go well for his family. Priorities are family first.

    Wish Wheels well from all of us. Obviously his family stuff is more important than meeting us.

    Not getting the car until either April or March. They don't have another Volvo like the one I want anywhere in the country so they have to special order it from the factory.
