Mr Poston you know I'm just playing. I drove through some rough weather on the way back to AL, but took my time and made it back I  time to visit my next saw job. It sure was a delight seeing you again brother. Take care of that hoof ankle.

. . . . Andries I am curious to hear more about this whatever machine, sounds interesting, does it make sawdust or shavings or whatever??
Hey 4x4 - it makes all three from time to time. 
:D  :D  :D
Here's some photos:

Yellowhammer feeds the jointer for two reference faces.

Customsawyer supervises (hey, it's his machine!) the feeding of the planer

Then 123maxbars says "ooooooh, smooth ambrosia maple!"

Hey, what smells like DIESEL? Is Poston back?

Andries, meeting you was such a pleasure. Wow, what a great guy! I've made many new friends over the past few years because of this forum. And I've personally got to meet many of you because of a generous man named Jake Dean. Jake, thank you for everything you do for us big fella! Thank you for always taking the time to answer any questions I have and for simply putting up with me! I can hardly wait so see you all again. We are all so fortunate to have this forum and those like Jake Dean with us because how else would we all get together!? Anyways, it was a blast. Here are a few random pics I took and not taking the time to caption them from my cell phone. Good Night friends!

123maxbars said that he was getting some terrific footage with his drone.
Looking forward to seeing the final edit!

Thank you Jake for hosting the Georgia Project, again.
It is well worth every mile to hang out with all the sawyers from the Deep South.
. .  and thank you to 'all y'all' that repeated what you just said, to the guy from Canada that was trying to translate understand comprehend the local language.  :D  ;)  :D

     As always, Jake hosted a great event.  And as always, it was a fine thing to meet back up with old friends and make some new ones, and get an opportunity to learn more than I knew before.  Thanks again Jake and Tammy for putting this on!  Already looking forward to the next one.

The Yin and the Yang.  The Yin is the short one, and the Yang is the tall one.

thanks for sharing those pics, Jake has an awesome set up, gave me lots of ideas for my own log yard. 

After 8 hours or reviewing/editing footage I finally finished the video from last weekends sawing. 

I should have it uploaded by 9pm this evening, I will post a link when it is online.

I would like to thank Jake and Tammy for opening up there home and making everyone feel so welcome.  Great food, fellowship and weather.  As usual there was lots to see and learn.  Every year Jake gets more neat toys.  I didn't get to stay last year to see the RRQS so it was great to see the masters making it look easy.  I really appreciate Gene taking the time so share his knowledge too. Was nice to get to make some new friends and see some old ones again.
