    Sadly, the time has come to say goodbye..
    Fellow ABW'ers,

    It seems like an eternity that I have been posting here at ABW, having fun with fellow members, learning, contributing, sharing thoughts, opinions, support and just having a great place to hook up with friends and industry peers. I can't find the words to express how much I appreciate the experience. A forum like ABW is hard to find, and even harder to leave; in fact, it is unbelievably hard.

    But after long conversations with my wife and family, and considerable thought, I have decided to leave ABW...effective Monday morning, April 30, at 7 A.M. Eastern time. That's the bad news.....

    Now here's the good news!!!

    I'm leaving ABW because we are headed home to Colorado, departing our FL winter retreat at 8 a.m. April 30, and plan to drive it in three days, so I will be back at ABW by Thursday evening!!! I just love to make big entrances and exits!!

    Hope to check in en-route, but if not, have a good week gang!

    Alan & Ellen

    What's wrong with Seattle?

    Prior to 2-1/2 years ago, my only experience there was at Sea-Tac changing planes. Then my daughter and son-in-law decided to move to Seattle, and Mrs. Hound and I have had great times there every few months visiting them. Its a great city, gateway to beautiful scenery, great activities, excellent restaurants, with clean air and brisk weather that's a welcome break from dry, smoggy SoCal. And as bad as the traffic is there, its still better than here, or on the LV Strip.

    Were we to move anywhere from SoCal, and three years ago I never would have said this, Seattle would be a top choice. (Even though the kids wouldn't want us permanently within 500 miles.)

    Thanks CT - 700 miles of beauty a day may be a bit of a drag, but we have some good books on cd, so I'm ready to go.

    Alan, Well you got me too. I couldn't figure out why you would be leaving ABW. Keep up the April Fools jokes, it's going to be a long time until next year.

    Safe passage my friend.

    Geez I leave for a few days...come back...see this...almost get all teary-eyed and depressed - I mean who am I to make fun for being old? Some other poor soul was going to get the brunt of my insults.

    Alas, it was just a short joke.

    Alan, have a safe trip back to Colorado bud. Stay old brother, stay old

    Well, it's about 6:30 Tuesday morning. Ellen is still asleep, but she'll be getting up soon. We covered 740 miles yesterday, which landed us in Murfreesboro TN, about 32 miles south of Nashville.

    I took Ellen out for a gourmet dinner (Arby's) and then we hit the rack. My plan today is to make it to Goodland KS, so we have about 760 miles ahead of us. So far, so good. The book we are listening to on CD right now is called Split, and it's a pretty good "who done it" so between red bull and the book, the miles are just melting away.

    I'm offline as soon as this is posted, so have a great day gang. Hopefully all goes as planned and we make Goodland tonight. BTW Poopie, thanks. Nunez, what do you mean "excited!!" I think you meant devastated and just mixed it up with excitement. Matt, thanks for the "old" slam again, and cutting me so deeply as usual. Connie - thanks, and Web, what the he- -? Drama "Queen?" Did you mean Master Thesbian?

    Make something good happen today gang.

    Well, today we made 764 miles, which put us in Salina KS around 8:10 tonight. Long day, long drive, but some pretty country. Today we drove through TN, KY, IL, MO and now KS. We've checked in to the highest class hotel Salina has to offer (a Holiday Inn Express), got our Pizza Hut take out meal and brought it back to the room to relax.

    We're on the road tomorrow morning at 8 am, and if all goes as planned, we should make it back to our home in Pine, CO by 6 P.M. tomorrow. It's been both a long and yet quick two days, and we're holding up just fine. Had a great day online while we drove today too - and that is something you just have to love about the internet!!

    That's about it for now Bros and Sisses, so have a great Wednesday, and make something good happen!!
