          Glad you both made it there safely. I hope the weather is OK. It's snowing here in central PA. We will get to our hotel tomorrow night but not go to J building until Tuesday.

          There will be another HCMA member there, too, but he doesn't post much on the forums. I've been talking with him through private messages. If I recall correctly (my memory is fuzzy) he's going there today to get checked in. He's having surgery the same day I am. We could have a little "Big Hearts" party!!!! We'll have to get a picture of all of us to share.

          I'm looking forward to meeting you, not a specialsnowflake & carolinaviking!
