I envy you guys--this will be a life changing experience for you. The recovery weekend is great. But meeting the men from here--no words can describe that.

Okay there needs to be more than:
  • Nathan
  • Bill (me)
  • Mikey
  • Jason (jtt5254)
  • Curis (Roland)

Who else? Anybody? It's not too late to sign up.

Looking forward to seeing you there,
Bill

Ahhhh….

The school year is done. All the college kids are just about all gone. My final exam was last night, so I am done studying and now I can read what I want for pleasure rather than college stuff that makes me fall asleep.

All the other obligations are done, now I can relax and start really thinking about…

CANADA!!!

A nice long drive…. The warmth of spring… Getting Bill to chug coffee…

I feel like I’m a kid counting down to Christmas.

I can’t wait to see you guys.

Brothers,

Man o man I just can't wait. To me it seems that this is truly a step in the right direction. It has always been hard for me to talk about my abuse with other guys, but I know at the retreat it will not be so hard. I will have the love and support from my true brothers that have been to hell and back. It will be a life changing event I hope. I will be like a party for me with all my good friends their.

I can't wait to finally meet you guys face to face, finally find out how Bill likes his coffee, does Mikey really say "A", see how anxious Jason really is, see how many cups of coffee Bill can take Roland for, and to meet and greet each and ever one of you guys.

lots of love, Nathan

Unfortunately I cannot be there, but I know from experience that meeting other survivors is a life-changing experience. You guys are going to learn so much, and grow so much from your time together.

I could go: expenses for travelling are my only hindrance. I live in FL. But registration would be covered. I'd be free Thursday afternoon to travel were anything to come up.

Alfred
IM me if you have ideas.

Guys, the retreat was absolutely wonderful. Highly recommended.

It was an absolutely honor meeting Nathan (aka CyberChild), Mikey, Alfred (fhorns), Curtis (Roland), and Jason (jtt5254) AND Taz, Howard and the rest of the impressive and caring facilitators.

As Nathan says, Lots of Love,
Bill

Boy o boy,

Man the retreat sure was great. I never though I could gain so much in just three days. It was truly an honor to meet all of those great guys. I am even going to be at the level two retreat later this year. I would not miss that for the world.

lots of love, Nathan

It's 2am, I just got home.
I'm going to bed.

I love you guys,
good-night

*Update*

Missed a deer by centimeters (eh) somewhere between Buffalo and Albany, but I could only laugh because I was on such a high.

Actually got in bed and had the light out @ 3 am and was still up at 6, wow, happy to get out of bed in the morning, what a concept! eh?

God! what a weekend!

I'm missing you guys. You brought such a feeling of safety and hopefulness that it infected me. I am changed. I am changing.
I took it home. Thank you.
It's not over. When's the next retreat? And Roland, why don't you go with us then, eh?

Peace,
Alfred

Alfred!!! good to see you made it, I miss you too!

Jason, did you make the flight? I thought I heard you say you went out of Buffalo, and I think I spent two hours in line at the border.

I think I may actually try to get to Utah eh.

as I said the only thing would be the start of the university's semester. But I guess I would just be missing one or two days.

I went thru the Peace Bridge customs (off the QEW) at around 530-545pm, no problem, only waited for 2-3 minutes. got to the airport by 610 for my 710 flight which was slightly delayed but props to Jet Blue for having my flight to JFK only slightly delayed when the flights on USAirways from LaGuardia (45 minutes to an hour) and Continental from Newark (the 445pm arrival hadn't landed around 630pm) were substantally delayed.

Got in around 845pm, and out of long term parking at around 930pm, drove down the Belt Parkway feeling good and driving with authority LOL. Got home around 11pm after stopping for gas and a snack.

Had a great time, met some great people. Everything was great, can't wait for Salt Lake City.

Now I gotta tell all you guys that that was the single greatest three days of my life bar none. I will never forget it. To actually press the flesh and meet and hug face to face. What an honor it was for me. And being, 63, I was truly overwhelmed by the youth and determination I saw. God you guys are great. And you all know who you are. I love you all like the best brothers in the world. God that we all lived in the same city.
I gotta stop Ime bawling
