    Expending time on the beach sounds so good. I have no idea where you are going, but just the word vacation is enough for me lol.

    Enjoy your time there! :Cheers: :surfing::whoopee!:

    It's kinda like speed dating, just move from thing to thing allowing yourself only so much time to look at demos and such.

    You losers should have gone! It was awesome! :D
    And I only got to go for one day and no time to see any speakers.
    I through a benji into the raffle and walked away with a huge magnetic frag station and a Turbos Aquatics L4 Algae Scrubber... over $600 worth of stuff.
    Also got to see all kinds of reef celebs. Talked to Julian Sprung at his booth. Saw Mr Saltwater Tank a lot. Saw the Tanked brothers. Saw Jason Fox, and the main guy from BRS. Hung out with the Ecotech guys for a bit, all super nice. Amazing corals for sale, way more than I expected and they were packing them in 3 oz specimen containers for those who flew in.

    But no livingreefers! :grumble:

    Allow me to say that getting you low-landers completely schwasty-pants at altitude is kind of my favorite thing.
