Finally made it back home across the pond and rested a little, but quite a few Shellbacks are still over there till the weekend.

What an amazing time. Great to finally meet in the flesh so many 'Catters who were already friends from Mudchat and from the threads, and to make new friends like Kendall and Dani and ... the list is endless.

And what a thrill to meet the guys who make the Cat and the DT happen - Dick and Susan and Joe and especially Max (not forgetting Lily-Anni). What a shame Pene couldn't make it - you were missed, Jeff.

And a real big thankyou to all those who hosted and entertained the Shellbacks for an additional two nights in the DC area.

And of course all the music and singing - I was totally blown away by the wealth of talent on display in workshops, concerts and especially in the informal sessions. Hard to pick out individuals, but evrything Barry Finn and Alaska Mike did was just incredible.

I will definitely be coming back again (.. and again, and again), with the Shellbacks or separately. You guys are the best.

WassaiL! V
