I will be there but I need at least a week's notice. It is a long way from western NC when you go the way I do. Hope Kentucky has got a bigger ferry.  It will save me a big detour.

I can taste the tri tips and the trip to Lambert's.

BK do I need to bring my own big oak tree.

Looking forward to seeing every one and showing Don the good way back to NC.

No need to bring an Oak tree Ned, we have trees. (mostly sycamores, but they have shade too!)

OK Bringing this back up to the top of the chart again one last time before making the dates definite.

We proposed either the weekends of
August 23rd, 24th, & 25th   
or August 31st, September 1st, & 2nd.... (LABOR DAY weekend)

We are tentatively going for the August 23rd, 24th, & 25th right now as the responses we've received in favor of either weekend have been about 50%-50% and it looks as though it would be easiest on "The Don" who's traveling all the way from CA for this. And also my business will be slower then too!

SO IF YOU have anything to add that might sway it one way or the other SPEAK NOW OR FOREVER HOLD YOUR PEACE!

As always anybody & EVERYBODY is invited!
Early arrivals and late departures are welcome too!

You are correct Don most of the people like the front of the cow better 

In Texas we made ground beef or stew meat with that part of the cow only Californians could come with BQ for those things lol  but I still call you my friend ok

Good luck

Rick we're 50 miles farther south now, but easier to find because we're right on US 70 now, and not out in the boonies like we used to be. LOL!

I won't know for a few more weeks if I can come at all so you'll just have to set a date and I may or may not be able to make it.

we would like to make a trip home to Brighton this year and this might give me the extra push! I hate traveling on the holiday weekends, the earlier dates my vote.
we love our buses!!! NE Pa or LI NY, or somewhere in between!

Don

Don I agree you had no warning on the sinking as soon as you left the gravel. I was on the phone (with Cody I think, who was broke down in WI @ the time) and trying to get out there to stop you from backing in, but as we all know I didn't make it in time.

As far as the Revcon goes......
Can you tow a "toad" that big without drawing to much attn. from law enforcement?
And if we're gonna tempt Cody with a "Revcon" we gotta do it on the other board as he's still banned here. ;)
