Just got back last night, had an amazing time. Got to talk to johnny colt for 45 minutes, play poker with rickey and peter keys. Set list was cool, the sail away show they played last of a dyin breed, skynyrd nation, whats your name, all i can do is write about it, things going on, swamp music, good teacher, sweet home. On the main concert everything was pretty normal except they played Red White and Blue. Also got to see Gary and Dale do a vow renewal and during the Q and A they answered alot of cool questions. I had an amazing time and i cant wait for next year!!

Yeah I made it!!
2nd what paiken8 listed on the set list.
The sailaway concert was short but awesome!! Did some old material that rocked the ship!! All I Can Do, one of my fav's was incredible!! Swamp Music another gem!! Then 3 off the new cd was also nice... BONUS, I got a copy of the set list from that concert!!

Lucky you on Red White & Blue.. I went to the first show and they didn't play that one but mixed it up a little bit.. Needle & Spoon, Tuesday's Gone were added.. I also went to the 10/25 concert @ The Hard Rock Casino in Ft Lauderdale before the cruise.. Met up with some other members from Skynyrd Nation the Ohio Chapter..

Lots of Skynyrd Syting's on the ship this time.. But I seemed to be at the wrong place at the wrong time... Just my luck.. My Frynds were always telling me who they ran into.. Oh well.. A couple of my own run ins... I was waiting for the elevator and it opened and there was Dale & her daughter.. I was going to talk to them the some other clowns jumped in and started yapping at them.. So I played it cool, which they didn't.. Then one night @ dinner with a Frynd of mine, I got up to get a drink and he came back & told me he gave our table to Johnny & his daughter.. He got his picture with them, so I took a peek and sure enough there they were.. I couldn't pass up the opportunity but didn't want to disturb them so I just went over & said "hi" & shook Johnny's hand... No pic, I didn't want to disturb them..

All the bands were awesome!! Saw all 3 Outlaw's shows.. 2 out of the 3 Skynyrd show's.. 1 out of the 3 Doobie Bros show's, who were great.. 2 of the 3 Blackberry Smoke show's.. Plus a lot more of the lesser known bands.. Late... Late.. nights, but well worth it!!

Sandy screwed our ports.. We were going to go to Key West & another island but had to got to Mexico...

Funny story... When we were going to leave Mexico we were delayed for a bit.. Bottom line Henry's son, Hank IV was "detained" and had to pay a $500 fine for an illegal substance before he could get back on the ship..


It was an another awesome time!!! Lots of music, drink and Frynds... And yes there will be a #7!!!

Lots of pictures to go through, just they'll have to be posted on facebook since we can't do it here...

Be cool all...

I'm not dead, at least not yet, Still Alone, Still Alive, STILL UNBROKEN....
