    Traffic was a mess. Crossed Gandy Bridge from St Pete around 9:30 -- by the time I parked the car it was 11:30. I did not meet anyone from the group, but had a great time. It was my first time at an air show and the Thunderbirds put on quite a show.

    A long day on the tarmac! I arrived about 0650 and put my car in line about 300 yards from the gate. At about 0805 I drove onto the base with no problem and was able to park near the entrance to the event; my car was accessible during the event. Shot lots of photos and had good listening to the planes on my handheld radio. I will be posting some photos after I rest up.

    Crazy traffic! Parked a Target on Gandy at 7:45 and walked until 9:15 to get in! Passed one bus and beat it to the base! Didn't find many familiar faces during the day...hope all had fun!

    Due to the nature of the event, it will probably be tough to meet everyone and stay together as a group. I will be by the entrance at 9:00, whoever is there then can start out as a group! I assume people will have varied interests and want to spend different amounts of time at various areas, so, the group will likely scatter as the morning goes on. Also, people will be arriving at different times as well. As long as you have fun, that's all that matters!
