  I just saw this thread, and I put the date on the calendar. Be good to put a face to some of the members on the Forum.
  Engineer, are you going alone or with family? I'll probably be going alone, since I'll be dragging mother to the EXPO the weekend before!!!! You're welcome to ride along; there'll be safety in numbers when we get over the Connecticut River.

I'll think about it, but it's getting rather close to an Alaskan Cruise I'm taking my bride of 50+ years on in early June.

I marked it on my calendar. That looks like a weekend I should be able to make. I'll likely bring something cold unless I come with a way to reheat something there, Driving time according to the directions on Peter Drouin's web site show 5 hrs 18 min. Then at my age there's 2 or 3 pit stops.

To save people from scrolling back through pages of posts to find the date and location:

This is on May 19, 2018 at Peter Drouin's place in Sanbornton, NH. See his website for directions: http://forestryforum.com/sanbornton/

This is about 25 minutes north of Concord, NH, not far from exit 22 off I-93.

If you are looking for other things to do while in the area, this is not far from Lake Winnepesaukee: lots of things to see and do around there and some nice little towns in the area (my sister used to live year round on an island in Lake Winnepesaukee).

Can anyone recommend a good campground in the area? It would be fun if we could all stay at the same place. Maybe we could cook a group breakfast and debate the merits of Vermont vs New Hampshire Maple syrup on our pancakes.

Or we could get you some from Michigan so there would be no debate at all. Don't let Don Staples see this post, or he will try to tell you Texas syrup is the best, and everyone knows, there is ony Two kinds of syrup in Texas...

To end any speculation. I've promised to try and make a trip east this year, but it will be for the Logrite open house in April if I can swing that. The last part of May we are committed to getting ready for the Coleman Veterans Memorial Concert which is supported in part by The Forestry Forum. (we take care of all their internet and web needs and volunteer where they need us. In exchange, the Forum gets promoted at the concerts.)

Ya'll have a good time and make the Forestry Forum proud.
