    Yes, I know that the AECS are still over a week away, but I am already getting very excited! http://chronicleforums.com/groupee_c...on_biggrin.gif In fact, I spent the whole morning packing the trailer. My husband just stared at me quizzically and mentioned that I wasn't leaving until the FOLLOWING Monday. All I could say was, "I can't help myself!" http://chronicleforums.com/groupee_c...icon_smile.gif

    So, let's have a check-in of who's going (whether you're competing or spectating). I will know absolutely no one down there (except my virtual COTH buddies) and I hope to meet some of you!

    I'll be taking my laptop with me (to keep up with work - my boss is already freaking out that I'll be out of the office a whole week - it's nice to feel so needed http://chronicleforums.com/groupee_c...n_rolleyes.gif http://chronicleforums.com/groupee_c.../icon_wink.gif), so hopefully, I can keep everyone updated on how the AECs are going).

    I also compiled a very comprehensive packing list which I'm more than willing to email to anyone who would like a copy. I'm famous for my list making! http://chronicleforums.com/images/cu...s/winkgrin.gif You can email me at ksoldavin@comcast.net.

    8 days and counting until we leave...

    I am going, taking a horse, but not competing.

    I actually spent this morning plotting out an "org chart" as I actually have to travel for business next Weds-Thurs. As Rhodey is only going for lessons, etc., I've gotten lucky and am taking a real minimalist approach.

    See everyone there!

    It's only a WEEK AWAY! http://chronicleforums.com/groupee_c...s/icon_eek.gif http://chronicleforums.com/images/cu...milies/lol.gif

    Seriously, though, it does seem to be coming up fast. I did unpack my mud-encrusted stuff from Richland today http://chronicleforums.com/images/cu...ilies/uhoh.gif and the trailer has been pared down gear-wise to accomodate TWO riders and two horses next week.

    New shoes for Gwen Tuesday, a fairly easy, happy work week for her so hopefully she'll be nice and fresh and happy to get on with that LONG trailer trip next week.

    We are pretty much loaded and ready to go. We will be packing along a cat with a broken leg. She had to have surgery yesterday and needs to be confined for at least 6 weeks. What could be more confining that three people and a barn cat in a horse trailer for 6 weeks. Oh well !!

    We're going down this Thursday to do Pinehurst and then stay over for the AEC. I'm already starting to mental about all of the things that need to be done before we leave and had my first "stress dream" about it last night (you know, the one where you are fifteen minutes away from your dressage ride and you can't find your clothes, tack, horse, etc.). http://chronicleforums.com/groupee_c...s/icon_eek.gif http://chronicleforums.com/images/cu...milies/lol.gif

    Anyway, I'm so looking forward to seeing everyone and actually getting to the AEC. It's been a long and winding road since they were first announced, and it is going to be wonderful to finally get to experience the fruits of so many peoples labor. We will be staying on grounds in a RV, so swing on by and have a glass of wine with us. http://chronicleforums.com/images/cu...milies/yes.gif

    Good luck to everyone going to the AEC! I posted on another thread about meeting up there, since I only live a 1/2 hour away, but apparently no one wants to meet me http://chronicleforums.com/groupee_c...icon_frown.gif since no one responded!

    If I know who you are, I'll be sure to cheer you on!

    So shall we try to plan a rendevous? Perhaps at the Welcome Party on Thursday evening? http://chronicleforums.com/groupee_c...icon_smile.gif

    I'm jingling that everyone has a safe trip there! http://chronicleforums.com/images/cu...milies/yes.gif

    What if everyone put a big "COTH" sign on their stall? That way anyone who wandered through could spot fellow BB-ers. http://chronicleforums.com/images/cu...milies/yes.gif

    I'm so excited, next Tuesday will be the slowed school day in the history of all time. We're either leaving after school on Tuesday or Wed. morning. I get to miss three days of school for horses, and parties, oh yeah! (don't say anything about the load of make-up work I will have.)

    ok, to be on topic, I am not going this year. My dad and I might drive down there just to check it out. That is if we can fins somewhere cheap to stay. ANyoen know of a ritz nearby (we have a timeshare with them, so we get hotel rooms at a ritz for next to nothing)

    Ohhhh Kelly, could you email me the list too? FlyACK1@aol.com

    OK, now I'm nervous, I just got back from my baby greenie's first ever HT and am in NO way close to being packed! The truck gets a new clutch this Tuesday and the trailer is getting a once over tomorrow, then I'm packing Thursday, picking up a horse Friday and we are on our way East Saturday morning baby!!!

    I'll add a COTH sign to my door too! You won't be able to miss my pony, big, white, and obnixious LOL.

    Boy, is it sad I'm looking forward to a 32+ hour drive cross country with my dog? I can't wait!

    Is there some place I can go and school some XC jumps on Wed next week near CHP? If I come down on Tuesday, I'll do a light hack that evening and then on Wed I'd like to pop around some terrain down there with fences since its so hard around here to school, and then compete on Thursday in dressage, etc.

    Mine are worse..I'm actually riding without my clothes in my "stress dreams".

    Boss Hoss - Cross Winds Horse Center is just 5 miles from the Horse Park and we have many cross country jumps, here. Mostly BN and Novice, but very good galloping courses. We also have plenty of stalls and turn-out if anyone needs "real stalls"!! You can reach me by phone - 910-281-5220 or crosswindshorses@yahoo.com to set up schooling.
