Today 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. :)

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  ;) :).





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.

Please continue the count in your post. :)

Jeff,
As much as I would like to attend, the Michigan Army National Guard has other plans for me starting that weekend. That starts our annual training in Grayling.

I've followed all your adventures at the pig roast for several years now and would love to attend, but so far it's been too close to our family vacation in the keys. Lobster season starts Aug 6th and I'm in a boat with kids and grandkids spending the week snorkeling and fishing. Sorry to miss the pig roast but look forward to all the pics and reports after the event, wonderful to put faces to names from your reports. Have fun, stay safe, some day I'll find out what "purple drank" is,

Joe

In my house I'm the boss, I know this because my wife said so, I only hope she doesn't change her mind!

New to me Timber Harvester that I'm learning to operate, been building a home built mill for a while, should be ready to make sawdust with it someday if I ever quit "modifying" the design.
