    Trip and Phoenix finally met for lunch yesterday in Boise, ID. :)

    I took a rather extended lunch hour from work to meet with Phoenix.. After we got past the issue of how to recognize each other, everything went well. Phoenix has the photo to prove it and I suppose he'll post it in the next few days or so.

    There's not much really to describe. Phoenix is very talkative so I did a lot of listening :wink

    It was too short a time. There may be a point in the future where we'll be able to spend more time socializing.

    Can't stay. As you might have guessed, I've been pretty busy lately with no let up in sight. I'll drop by when I can. Cheers.

    REALLY? What did you two talk about?
    Did you both carry around a computer mag so you could reconise each other?

    What I can't figure out is what Trip had any trouble recognizing someone who looks and dresses like this.

    :twisted: :biggrin :eek: :ohmy

    Pay close attention to the url in the address bar for the image.... :biggrin

    Yup we finally did it after a good few years of trying :)

    As both of us have been rather absent around here we mostly discussed how we were doing etc, Trip is the down to earth funny guy you would expect him to be after reading most of his god knows how many posts here and we had a good laugh over some lunch

    looking forward to maybe have a better chance to socialise next time im over, with perhaps a few more days planning it should be possible! :)

    will post the pic as soon as i get the chance :)

    Nice to meet ya Jim, looking forward to next time!

    Excellent stuff, two people meet up and turn a virtual friendship into a real one. It's happened to me a couple of times and it's always a pleasure.

    Good one guys!!

    LOL. Pretty good, Trip. I thought my picture of Phoenix was funnier but your picture of him still has him wearing makeup.... :twisted:
