Well I went and I have to say I'm glad I did. Great group of people, I didn't meet everyone in my short visit. Next year I will be setting more time aside for this.
Thank you Jeff and everyone else that helps put this together.

I also went for a short visit, my daughter and granddaughter flew in from colorado this weekend.  The food rivals a catered wedding or better :laugh: Got to meet more michigan folks too.  I am going to start using buckstop deer scent now too.  Deerhunter owns that company.  Really nice job everyone and it was good to see everyone again.

If you come through Canada you can stop and see  Niagara Falls. It worth the time if you haven't been there. It's a pretty awesome thing to see at least once.

Mrs. Beaver, the Kids, and I had a fantastic time at the pig roast. Was so good to see everyone again. The food was great as always, the hospitality is second to none. Thank you Jeff, Tammy, your entire family and anyone else that had a hand in making this a yearly reality.

Also special thanks to woodmizer, stihl, and logrite for the door prizes. I cant believe a won a $400 wood moisture meter and my daughter won a box of woodmizer saw blades ( which she quickly and willingly sold me for about a years supply of diaper money). Mrs Beaver won a stihl mug, and my son i law won a hookaroon that i know will get a lot of use when him and i are cutting wood and moving logs.

Thanks agian to everyone. We had a great time and already have it on the calendar for next year.

coxy, if you have no criminal record and a passport it's a very easy passage from one country to the other. if you don't have a passport other picture id still works at this point. Some truckers are crossing the border several times a week/day. If you have a criminal record you will get the slow go and that's no fun. just remember to answer questions with yes and no and nothing more. that's all they want, and more words just gives them more to think about. Come visit Canada!
I don't have a record that I know of  :)  can you get through with just a photo id drivers license   I went to pembrook (I think that's how you say it) about 10-12 years ago some family has camps up that way cant remember the name of the lake it was great fishing what I remember of it didn't have a sober breath for 6 days  :D and I can tell ya the molsen beer in Canada has a way bigger punch than it does in the states the last few days I got in the triple x stuff what a hang on I had  :D :D

Then you should be good to go coxy. My son went through Kingsgate, ID a month or more ago and his passport was expired but they told him he was ok on his photo id as it was ground travel. I've used my passport for the last several years so I haven't had any issues.

This year's pigroast was tremendous. The feeling of fellowship and friendship was so strong I hated for it to end and to see friends depart for home. As it happens every year, the days before the roast I wonder why Tammy and I put ourselves through all this work, and today, I sit here resting for a few, with the strongest yearning ever to do it again.
