Bruce and Brian, looks like I won't be able to make it, we had our washer malfuction and it flooded our laminate (Pergo) flooring which is now ruined. So our house is right now complete crazy, flooring all having to be torn out and new flooring installed which is about a 2 week job. I REALLY didn't need this! (Although I could leave this mess to the little lady of the house and let her handle it while I go flying for 3 or 4 days, anyone think I would have a bed to sleep in when I return from flying?)

Dennis,

You got 10 days to refinish it before coming up to LBS09. OR just throw a carpet over the floor and call it good.

I thought the pergo floor is water proof??

Brian, Pergo or any laminate floor is waterproof as long as you don't have water at the seams where it snaps together, We had at least an 1/8 to 1/4 inch of water everywhere for up to 2 hours, by that time it had leaked into quite a few of the seams. So it all had to come up and get tossed. We have found the new flooring and it will start getting installed next Monday, meanwhile the house is a complete mess with furniture jammed every which way, and the garage is full of stuff so I can't even access my models. This really sucks! You guys have fun at Banos, I could possibly come for one day but that's too long of a drive by myself since no one is available to go with me on short notice if I could go.

Dennis,

We fly there once a month. Come up anytime. Just the wind works the best during spring time.
