I'll be there if the creek don't rise. If HB makes it you might want to get some ear plugs.
Anybody that can find time might want to investigate Bill's Old Bike Barn that is just up route 11 a few miles.

I wish I could go as the wife and I could use some time off and get away, and typically do this time of year. I would also like to meet many of you, but it just does not look like it will happen.

The people on here have been so kind regarding my upcoming surgery that I would love to meet all of the people on here. I can be pretty opinionated I know, and know that I am commanded too:

Love God with all my heart
Love they neighbor as myself

and do try to be understanding, but on some topics can be passionate. But I hope nobody thinks I am unapproachable. A person could call my mother a woman of ill repute and I still would not get upset, so I am not that bad of a guy. Katie is a gem...

Maybe someday the guys in the Northeast can get together. With "Rock the Flock", numerous farm tours, and the "Micro-Logging Equipment Conference", my farm is quickly becoming an unofficial fairgrounds, so it could be held here. We could do a tour of Bryant Steel Stove Works perhaps...

If anyone wants to set one of these up in their own area that is fine with me. I was actually considering doing it outside of PA myself at some point.

No problem, but honestly Katie and I love to go on road trips and love the NE PA area. To get down there and support that region, see a coal stove factory, and meet people on this forum would be great.

I am a HUGE FAN of supporting people, and know this forum is here to help promote a unique natural resource that NE PA has.

Sadly we just cannot get down there this year.

Some year though, maybe during Leaf peeping season, people could come up from PA to Maine so they could see leaves and dine on Lobster. We can have it at my place for sure.

That's a lot of lobster. I guess they just send the dwarf ones down here!

Any opportunity in the Berwick general area to get coal Saturday morning? I've been getting Direnzos and I guess I could stop there on the way up if I come. Just wondered if there is something else in the area I might try.
