I bet you guys are going to bed early. In fact, I'd be surprised if Fred's even awake!

See you tomorrow!

A lot you know, Peter, we had dinner at a cafe along the river, and tasted our way down their extensive list of Kentucky bourbons (okay, Fred didn't get very far down the list, and he's passed out in his room ).

I don't believe I've ever tasted 120 proof bourbon (Booker's) before. It was good, but the 80 proof Maker's Mark is my favorite so far.

It's kinda slow around here tonight, so the staff has been pretty chatty. We got a lot of good tips on local food and drink.

Right now, I'm getting ready to head down to the lounge. I'm sure there must be some ladies down there just dying to meet a cool guy from L. A.

I'm sure they are. And what will you be doing?

What's the weather like?

Mike, I get in around 5:00 tomorrow.

There was water on the ground when I got here. The locals say it is left over from some earlier weather phenomenon called rain. Never heard of it, I'll have to look it up.

Supposed to be high fifties - low sixties tomorrow.

So does this "rain" stuff squirt up from the ground or something? Where does it come from? Seriously weird.

50's and 60's?!? Guess I'll bring the long underwear!

That alone is a reason to go... I'm going to enjoy having heat leave my body for a change. This state is still 10 above normal every day.

I thought you were "cool" enough already, how are you going to be when "super" cooled

What a beautiful day! A little cool, but not a cloud in the sky.

Fred and I are going to help some of the guys with setting up.

I'm keeping an eye out for the arrival of the BCTW Dream Team. If I can get through the mob, maybe I can get an autograph or two.
