One pic says it all:



About a dozen of us got together last very extended weekend to play games in da swamps of Florida. We do it once a year in the winter (swamp) and once a year (beach) in the fall. Great food. Great games. Great times. Great friends.

JR's fantastic AAR here:

Tip of the hat to Brother Jimbo and his outstanding hosting skills as always. Jimbo on left with his BIG slab of ribeye for steak nite.

As always, I had a fantastic time.

When Wargame Depot is on a "gaming vacation" these are the guys I'm hanging out with!

By the way, Dr and I are the good looking ones.


Cheers,

They provide a plane ticket from Philadelphia; I'll provide the beard!

Yeah, but can you make solitaire wargaming look like a lotta fun?

(Don't tell me--all those guys in the pic just finished solo games.)

I'd agree with you, but I can't see the faces too well with all the shiny foreheads blinding me...
