Wife and I were ready to prepare for the trip and got our plans changed.  Her Mother passed and we're busy with returning her body to PA for funeral services including burial with her husband at Indiangap National Cemetery.  Have fun for us.

I don't really know any of you but I live in Midland, about 40 minutes away. I assume I'd be welcome but I'm a bit awkward not knowing anyone.

We plan to be up there Thursday evening.  8)

My youngest son ,Henry (6), kept asking when we were going to "Mish". We couldn't understand why he was calling it that. Today he asked when were we there before because he didn't remember going there before, then it made sense. He thought we were going to " Mish" again....  instead of Michigan :D
Kids are great. A few years ago my son, about 3.5 at the time, was looking at what I was cooking. He said to me and my ex, "wooks wike titen". Of course we responded with kitten and every sort of word we could think of that sounded like that. He kept repeating himself, not getting frustrated. Then finally he just belted out, "cockadoodle do...titen". Oh, chicken.
I'll never forget that memory.

Sorry to say that I'll have to take a pass on this years Pig Roast.
I was planning on going, but the current project just keeps on growing.

It turns out that spiral stairs around an un-shaped tree trunk are a challenge . . . who knew?
It would've been great to sit with WDH and Customsawyer to figure out how the heck to build this DanG. thing....
Have fun all of you, and safe travels all of you Sawyers!

Howdy Evil,  Come on over.  The folks are warm and welcoming, the food is tasty-fine, and the swag is abundant.  I too wondered about attending and would I fit in or be an outsider, but from the first sighting I knew I had found new friends and would have a good time.  I came from Oregon and was hoping to learn the people that populate the Forum were as genuine in person as they are online.  Once I wandered into the fray everyone I spoke with could not have been more friendly.  I had a wonderful time and know you will be just as welcome.

Have a daughter that is having C-section at 9:30 in the morning. Want to stop by hospital to check on her and see newest grand baby, then we should be on the road by noon. We are staying at Osceola Grand Hotel and may come by tomorrow night for the Friday night action, then of course be back Saturday.

When we last came two years ago, we brought door prizes that we did on our embroidery machine. This year our door prize offerings are coming off our laser engraver, but thats all the info you will get and will have to wait and see on Saturday.

Mrs. Beaver and I cant wait to see you all again
