I'm really excited about this gathering, it is in LA so you know we can get our Cajun on, I'm going to have a buddy from Texas meet us there I haven't seen him since high school. I can drive to see my mom. And FC will be there with his whole town. And and and.

Time to get serious about planning to make the gathering if you are on the fence stuff a little cash back each week for gas money and get you and whoever you want to bring in the car/truck to north LA. Just need you.
Bed? There's one waiting.
Food? There will be plenty.
Fun? No doubt.

Just need you! You will not regret it!
