Title: Official 2017 Pigroast RSVP 14th annual
Post by: Jeff on June 06, 2017, 08:55:43 am
Yesterday we ordered the pig and the port-a-potties (MEN'S and LADY'S!) so that means it is time to start getting a count for the pigroast. :)

  I'd like to take a moment and encourage, that this year, if you have been meaning to come, but keep telling yourself " I'll make it next year", Make it this year! No one knows what the future holds, and as I get deeper in this life, I'm beginning to get a fuller understanding of that. We should grasp each moment like it is the last and celebrate it!  Now, on to the details!

Remember this is a family event. We have a pool for the kids and when we know there is going to be a group, we plan activities to include them. So, if ya got em, BRING EM!  :D

You are not required to rsvp to attend, but we sure would appreciate it if you think there is a good chance you are coming to add your number of attendees to our count. This gives us a good idea on what to expect and also gives incentive to others to come. You can always retract if you need to, but you won't  ;) :).


Area Motels (https://maps.google.com/maps?q=48625+lodging&hl=en&ll=43.995778,-84.92981&spn=0.51866,1.344452&sll=43.919529,-84.736322&sspn=1.038641,2.688904&hq=lodging&hnear=Harrison,+Clare,+Michigan&t=m&fll=43.995778,-84.92981&fspn=0.51866,1.344452&z=10)

Area Camping (https://maps.google.com/maps?q=48625+camping&hl=en&sll=43.919529,-84.736322&sspn=1.038641,2.688904&hq=camping&hnear=Harrison,+Michigan+48625&t=m&z=11)

I strongly recommend getting opinions on hotels or motels in the area from us or other members that have come to the pigroast. There are a handful that turn up on those google maps that we will strongly advise against. There are plenty of very good places to stay.

ITINERARY:
Friday, August 4th, Set up day, visiting, pig prep, boiled dinner for supper! Bon fire. Swimming, more visiting
Saturday, August 5th, Pancakes and Sausage breakfast at 8 a.m., Pig around noonish, followed by door prizes and visiting.

Please continue the count in your post. :)
Jeff, Wildflower, Stacy, Jeremy, Seester Leeenda, Tammy's mom and Gene make

That said, I'm pretty sure there will be some of Kittiz Kreations products on the prize table anyway.   :)

I see that Lakeside Motel & Cottages scores pretty good on Tripadvisor. Any other input on that property?

I'm not absolutely positive I'll make it but I'd make 61.

Any info on the Mackinaw Bridge? I've never been over it but my drivers were always leery of it due to winds if I understood correct? That would be my route if I can make it.

If you have any concerns about driving the Bridge, the Bridge Authority will drive you with your vehicle across for you. That includes "18 wheelers" also. Usually a non-issue though as Jeff stated. Check AM radio station 530 for Bridge information before crossing for current conditions.

Not sure how important the count is but it is beginning to look very doubtful for me. Lack of mobility and all that goes with it. Down to 86 I guess. Make it a good one!

The count just gives us a rough idea for planning. RSVP is not requoted to attend. If you find at the last moment you can come, then come! :)

     With a great deal of sadness and a fair amount of anger, I'm afraid I won't be able to attend after all.  An idiot running a stop sign the other day means my truck won't be up to making the trip.  No injuries, other than to my plans and truck.  Have a great party!  Maybe next time.

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.

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.

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.

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!

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. We love our Forestry Forum family.

It's hard to imagine that any year could exceed any of the previous year's Pig Roast, but this one was truly a winner.  PatD could not make the trip, so Marty and I decided that we would go and what a trip it was.  A total of 2247 miles and some long hours driving but the Pig Roast is a true treasure at the end of Jeff & Tammy's Rainbow.  Thank You Jeff & Tammy, and also Thank You Wood-Mizer, Logrite, and Stihl.

And Yes, there "was" Blueberry Wafflecone Ice Cream with a side of Buttered Pecan.

Marty and I had to leave fairly early Saturday afternoon in order to make the trip home so he could go to work tomorrow morning.  We spent last night in Elizabethtown, KY.  We stopped for gas and when I looked down I happen to see something glitter.  Yup, a Precious Stone and Very Valuable!!!
 

 (http://www.forestryforum.com/gallery/albums/userpics/20011/IMG_3001.JPG?easyrotate_cache=1502066329)
Now don't even try to bust my bubble and say bad things about it's value.  If folks can think that their Very Valuable Walnut Tree is priceless, then why can't I think that this gem is also worth millions, thousands, ah man, give me a break, surely hundreds.  Heck if I don't get it appraised it will never loose value.   ;D

Whatdayoumean Luck??   :o  I was wearing an original "Timber Buyers Network" Hat, Orange Shirt, Logrite T Shirt, plus my Lucky Underwear.  When the stars align, you can't loose.

Now that hat:

Timber Buyers Network was Jeff's original idea for a "forum" and was the predecessor to the Forestry Forum.  Jeff may know how many of those hats are in existence?

Sadly I missed taking a picture of the "Andy White Memorial Benches". 

Be assured that these benches were well used and were actually moved to more prominent positions several times during the two day event.  I told several people as did Jeff and Marty about Andy and the significance of those two benches.  Many members remembered Andy and valued his contributions to the Forestry Forum.  Andy's warm heart will continue to be remembered through the thoughtfulness of Nancy and the generosity of the FF members that made these Memorial Benches possible.

The first person to point this out to me was Andy White. All the members here are all the same. Hard working, generous, kind, caring, all around great people.

We are definitely planning to attend the next one and so should you.

It is best to have either a passport or an enhanced drivers license.
In the past 10 weeks I have been in and out of Canada a few times and the enhanced license is what I used.

This is the bird house that I told my wife not to choose as her door prize since we were in a small two seat rag top . We got it in the car by putting some of our clothes in the storage place for the top when it is down. If the bird house was one half inch taller, we would have had to tie it on top of the trunk lid. It was a nice prize donated by Log-gistics, but it was just almost too large for our car. When we got it home, of course, my wife wanted it painted
