Thanks for making the video and posting the link.  Were you able to make it to the top of Pike's Peak?

Thanks for cruising out to CO again for another Eagle meet.  It was great to see you and your family!

I've got a few pictures I've been meaning to post. I don't think all the Eagles were assembled in one spot when I was down there on Saturday for a proper photo.

Good to see you as well. Your car looked great.  Ya we were able to make it to the top of Pikes Peak perty cool for a 38 year old car. Ya weren't able to get as many group photos either  seems there was some itinerary issues didn't line up. Would love to see more photos.

I was able to make it to the Eagle meet on Saturday only, but I did get some pictures that I will post here.  I met the group at the Cheyenne Mountain Zoo and got some pictures of Eagles in the parking lot (and in the zoo)

Next stop was the Will Rogers Shrine of the Sun, you actually had to drive through the zoo to get there.

After the Shrine, most of the group went onto the Trolley Museum.  I went with Murdoc1905 and his wife to grab some lunch, they are both very cool people and I was glad I got to meet them and hang out with them.

We then met up with the larger group at the Money Museum.  Let me tell you, if you are into the history of money, you would truly geek out at this place!!

Big thanks to Terry, Dan, Austin, and everyone else that organized the entire weekend, and thanks to everyone that turned out.  Hopefully we'll get to do it again.  I did learn from Austin that the AMO national gathering will be in Colorado Springs next summer, should be fun!!
