You can't get rid of us that easy

It's been six years!

Well, like a bad penny, we'll be back in D.C. in December 10th-ish.

We are shmoozing at a meeting all that week, then renting a car on the 15th and headed off to drift around for eight days and wash up in Raleigh N.C.

It'd be fun to catch up with any old acquaintances or dock sailors for a libation and chat.

Or, any recommendations for things to do/places to see are welcome.

Russ

We're about to leave on our second trip south for the winter, but plan to fly home for the month of December for Christmas with the family, so we should be able to make a meetup. It'll be good to see you and Sue again!

Keep us posted!

Traveling last year, I bought a six pack of Natty Boh from an Oriole souvenir shop at Fells Point. Back at the hotel I made it through half of the first can, threw the rest in the trash. Perhaps it's an acquired taste.

Neil, I am from here and I agree 100% on Natty Boh.

Russ, Laura and I just moved to Solomons Island. I can ride my bike to the boat!! If you are around here while you are here, let us know.

I'll second or third the thumbs down on Natty Bo beer. Water makes more sense.

Would love to meet Russ and other A4ians. Not sure if I'll be able to get there from NYC.

Which Ram's Head, there are 6 or 7 of them?

I'm game for a meet up if you decide to put one together! I'm midway between Baltimore and Annapolis.

True, there are many Ram's Head locations, but THE Ram's Head is the original one in Annapolis!

It seems I may not have a second career as a travel agent.

In the interest of full disclosure re the pushback on Natty Boh, I confess that I drink wine out of a box (which becomes just a bag on the boat). I do love Natty Boh, but I'm not sure it would do well in a blind taste test.

You see Natty Boh apparel (shirts, hats, etc.) all over the place here on the Eastern Shore, and I read somewhere that 90% of it is consumed in Baltimore.

I suspect there are other beers which are locally loved, but despised elsewhere. Like some of those from PA?

We made reservations for a B&B out on Chincoteague for the 15th–16th, but I see a few nice looking places in The Solomons. Our itinerary is flexible. It would be fun to see Shawn's boat.
I should assume the weather will be cool, so a Pub will probably be the likely venue to "raft up".

Neil, you should have just opened those beers at least. A puzzle under the cap of each one! Now that's value!

Nope, cans.

Russ, you will love Chincoteague. Oysters and some of the best clams you ever ate.

Just pray it doesn't snow. Years ago, we woke up to a 9" snowfall as we were preparing to head back home. I think we spent an extra four days there. There wasn't a snowplow in the whole county.

Bill

ps: Don't feed the ponies.
