Woodbowl,

We're gonna' have to play it by ear right now. Looks like they have plenty of room still. Got to make a decission soon though.

DanG, I just realized that it is being held on the airfield at KMUL.  8)

Whatz'a chances I'm gonna find a motel room within a short taxi ride of the field, or another field (Thomasville, Camilla) nearby?

I might hafta burn up some fuel and go have a lookey see.  :D

Murf, I hate to tell ya, you ain't gonna' find a motel close by. They've been booked up for a year in advance. Last year, I slept in my van and DanG camped out in his truck.

Sounds like your flying in. You got a tent? There is a spot where I was last year that folks in campers pitched extra tents for their kids and incomming family members. It's off to the side, not crowded, close to the showers and close walking to the events.

When you get there, make a B-line to the sawmill section. I'll probably be hanging around D&L or WoodMizer. If I'm not around, DanG, Don K or Tom should know where I'm at.

If all fails to hook up, go out the front gate, locate the section of big motor homes parked on the grass. (not the tarmack) The area is directly behind the motorhomes under some pine trees. It's all within a few rock throws from the showers.

Hey ....... did you know that the MAUL factory is located in a hanger onfield?

Maule's presence is one of the reasons I'd be going.  :D

I'd rather fly to another airport nearby and get a room, these old bones have seen too much turbulence for sleeping in a tent any more.

I'm thinking about coming down to stretch the legs on the new bird and see how 175 knots feels for a few hours.  ;D

Fly on in!!

Look me up at the sawmills and I'll be your wheels.

I'm staying at a motel in Valdosta, about 30 miles away from the field.

They'll have room.  IM me and we'll get together on it.

Hey DanG, Do you still have the benches or will we have to get some sawed up quick like? There has to be a place to hold court and tell tall tales.   :D :D :D :D :D

Well Tom, as my dear old uncle usta say, that's mighty hospitable of ya!

If I can get a few days liberty from the base CO here, I think I'll head down there. She's been in a pretty good mood lately, if  I talk nice she might even let me make a few detours along the way.  ;D

WB, we got the Navion finished up finally, what a blast!!

The weather wasn't great on the weekend with the remants of the Ernesto rolling through, but the weather cleared Saturday afternoon and as soon as I had a few thousand feet of ceiling I was up there!!

I did a little tour up over my cottage and that area, then back home before sunset.  8)

DonK, those benches went away with the lumber, and are now decorating a nice lady's front porch.  We'll just hafta make some new ones. ;D 8)

Murf, just come on down!  You'll have the greatest of times.  You'd hafta be some sort of dingbat to turn down Tom's offer, but there'll be plenty of us there with vehicles, so landing at Spence Field would definitely be your best bet.

Last year, a bunch of us went to a good little BBQ restaurant one evening, and had a blast.  They was poking fun at me for polishing them rib and chicken bones so well, but Ga_Boy pointed out that I had left a little marrow in one of'em.  :D :D  Ya just can't have a better time with your clothes on!

Jeanette and I will be there telling our Rust Reaper story.  Look for us in the Peterson booth. 

We'll be arriving late on the 15th and staying in Thomasville.  I hope to get up with my cousin, who lives in Thomasville.

We're looking forward to the show and seeing everyone.

Mike P.  I've been wanting to buy some RR, but just haven't gotten around to it. Now I can buy some and meet you in person. I love your restored dozer. I found my grandfather's 69 Cat D4 about six years ago and let the opportunity to buy it slip through my hands. He sold it in 82 after he retired from the logging industry and he passed away in 91. If only we could relive our regrets. See ya at Moultrie.

Blue Ox is gonna be there and bringing along our newest addition the Fire Stomper! So stop by and say HI !!! Check out this rig on our website www.blueoxequipment.com

For all of you looking for a place to stay, we found Thomasville to be a wonderful little town and only a 30 minute drive. Last year I called the Chamber of Commerce in Thomasville (229-226-9600) I spoke with a wonderful woman Joellen Griffin who was an amazing help. She gave me the low down on every B & B in town.(I personally had never stayed at a B & B and never intended to ever try it....well I pleasantly surprised.)

We Stayed at Serendipity and they SPOILED  us rotten!! (they packed us a lunch for every day....we LOVED it!)

Here are some numbers:

Serendipity 229-226-8111  (Laura will treat you right and her rooms are so cozy) Rates were very reasonable. www.serendipity.com

Dawson St Inn 226-226-7515 (reasonable rates)

Paxton House 229-226-5197  www.1884paxtonhouseinn.com

Evans House 226-226-1343

Carriage House 229-224-5659 Rooms started at $250 a night....way out of my price range, but maybe one of you hit the megabucks....I could sleep in the truck for a lot less than that!!!

Thomasville has a days inn 800-325-2525
Holiday inn express 229-226-4666

It was worth walking the streets of this lil town, its beautiful and the homes are amazing.

I hope this helps someone.... Stop by our booth...we are across from Peterson's boothe, we will miss you Capatain!

Hey Laurel!  I'm glad you discovered Thomasville.  It is my birthplace and was home until I was 16, when we moved to Fla.  It is a pretty neat little city.

Be sure and take a few minutes to see "The Big Oak."  Don't take the Big Ox on that little tour, though.  It would never make it under the branches hanging over the streets.
