After working the weekend, both Richard and I, we got up early on Monday November 19 to drive the 8 hours to get to Kearney, Nebraska, the location of the 2012 NAFA Field Meet. This is only the second time I've been able to attend, and Richard's first. The drive was uneventful, and we arrived in time to sit in on the first evening's program. There was a raffle almost every night, but nothing really interested me that first night. I saw and talked to a few people that I knew. We were quite ready for our bed that night to get an early start. Oh, and the manager of the hotel we were staying at (we had a room at a cheaper but still closely located hotel not a part of the conference center) had family with land that we were given permission to fly on our first day (Tuesday). Our room was smallish, but comfortable, and the price could not be beat! Free breakfast every morning!
Here is the video, which has been loaded out on YouTube. It is somewhat long, but not nearly as long as the full clip. Rich edited it for me. Thanks Rich!! You're a Sweetie!
