We'll be at the Days Inn mentioned.  Leaving here Friday after getting packed up, I expect we'll roll into the area around 5:00PM.

Don't know bout them shirts. Are they cleared for export or will I get stopped going back into Minnesota with one?  Oh well, probably get stopped anyway, Minnesota needs the money and them troopers think I drive too fast anyway.   :D

For those that have never been to Madison before, that old saying about "the shortest distance between two points is a straight line" just doesn't work in that town. You got to go the round about way.  :)

Hey all,
Chris's flight has been delayed, so his 31 hour journey has turned into 35hrs +.  Burlkraft is graciously staying up past his bedtime to go pick Chris up from the airport at 9.30pmish.
Looks like you are all ready to go, that log looks fantastic... we've definitely got some people here drooling, we can't wait to see photos.
Have fun  ;D

Well, I now have a madison LIbrary card!   No internet at the hotel.

Did I miss something?  The log is NOT located at 4430 Helgesen Road.  For anyone else who missed that, go East another 2-3 blocks then south on Daniels.  Cant miss the big piece of wood.   Since I THOUGHT I had Steves phone number, I did not bother to get it before I left....   1st mistake.   I didnt have it after all.  Wellllll, I found the rigging company, got ahold of the operator, and he told me where it was.  Location solved. 

We are at a super hotel.  Theres a BBQ grill and big out door seating area.  We have a suite with a frig and oven and eating area.   Cold beer and hot steaks?   I havent heard from anyone here, so dont know where they are working on lies and strategies for tomorrow.   

We are right near the Old Town cheese and beer place, so if you guys are within walking distance let me know.   Otherwise I guess we'll see everyone tomorrow.
