Okay everyone,

It looks like this is the right time of year to take roll call. As I've said one hundred times already this will be the first Gathering experience for my wife and I!!! We are extremely excited to attend. Okay, maybe me more than my wife. We fly into Denver on Thursday, July 14 and travel south from there, arriving in ABQ that night around 9 or 10pm. From there we are roadtripping allllll over the west for two weeks.

Who is coming? When are you arriving? My wife and I are going to have lunch with the emergency crew on Friday, probably visit the Route 66 Summerfest on Saturday afternoon before we attend the Gathering dinner.

As my wife looks over my shoulder as I type this, I'm reminded of a question: What's the attire for dinner? I'm assuming shorts and a polo are good? Or are long pants recommended? I suspect it's a fairly casual event.

Can't wait to meet everyone and reconnect! I'm probably unrecognizable from when I stopped collecting around age 17. Hard to believe I'm 30 now.

Hi Matt, I'll be arriving Thursday in the afternoon and as always I expect more than a few to already be there. The dress for dinner is in fact casual, I usually wear shorts and some sleeves at least instead of a tank top. I also see a lot those button up shirts with pictures of fish or cars on them too, haha.

Jim, all of those sitting at the dinner table with you appreciate the fact you're wearing a shirt with sleeves, although half of them probably don't recognize you with them on. :P

My wife and I will be there. We will arrive Thursday noon with our usual van full of non-Matchbox stuff, and with any luck they'll actually let us in our room and put us on a floor where all of the room-to-room action is. I also know Lil 86 is flying in from out of country, Atencio is flying/driving in, and Toyrfic will be rolling in as well. Oh and of course moderator David V. will be in for all of the fun as well. And diecast blogger/internet celebrity John Lambert as well. See you there!
