We won't hold that against you. (well we should but we won't).

You might need to bring some rain gear. Doesn't look good 20% chance of rain but 63 for temp.

20% chance and 4 days away Jim.... In New England that might mean it could be sunny and hot or snowing by the time Friday gets here!  :D

I'll be in the greater Burlington, VT area on Thursday on other tool selling business. And therefore I'm staying over in South Burlington Thursday night so I can be on hand for Friday morning.

Is anyone interested in getting together on Thursday for supper?

Give me a PM or post here and we'll see if we can get together for a while in the evening.

Just an observation: I think Labonville misses a HUGE selling opportunity by not bringing a ton of their merchandise to these shows. Handing out catalogs and pens is nice but I overhear so many people wanting to buy stuff from them and it's all for display.

I'll be at the W-M tent at 10:30. I don't have a Forestry Forum hat either.

Here's a scan of a Forestry Forum sticker, if anyone wants to pin on an identifying mark:

Labonville needs to open up some more stores.  I'm surprised thay don't have any in the Bangor,ME area.

If the weather is cruddy I might take a trip, if it's nice out I'll be sawing!  Just met Jeremy and the WM train to get parts, which was swell, looks like they have a 70 wide, a log splitter, edgers, I'm not sure what else I was drooling over the 70 wide lol

 Uh-oh, slow leak in my tire on the way up to the show.  Hoping I can still make the woodmiser tent by 10:30 to catch up to all of you.

My brother and I were at the show today. Weather was great.  Ordered some bands from WM.  I didn't really meet up with anyone.   We stayed in South Burlington last night.  Lots of fond memories in Burlington, my youngest daughter went to college there.
