Not to worry, Howard. We’d be in the bay and not the ocean. Skinny water, just long and wide. Nobody ever got seasick in the bay. Or, well, maybe . . . I think if someone is susceptible, they could seasick in a bathtub. Never experienced it myself, but seasickness doesn’t look like fun.

You were just a wee lad when that show was on.?  Re-runs? (Ran 1964-66


Definitely re-runs.  Sitting down for supper, old B+W TV in the kitchen.  I wasn't even a blip on the radar when it first came out.  You using that "common core" math or something there? :D  Ginger would have been way too high maintenance for me.

        :D :D  Yeah, I converted to common-core so I could fit in today’s      world.


I hadn’t looked up the dates when I made that comment.  You were pre-wee. Guess I can’t get anything by the FF members. No new math around the forum. People on here can do their math or they couldn’t handle sawing, logging, etc.

  Put me down as a maybe, depends on our move and sale of the farm. I was stationed in Norfolk in 72-73 on the USS Vulcan AR5 repair ship. It looks like Virginia Beach is a 3 hour drive from our Delaware house. I dated a Mary Ann, but not that one!

Back on track after the Gilligan's Island detour  :D

Between the original thread, and this thread, I have the following as tentative/interested:

Wudman
btulloh
Crusarius
Southside
nativewolf
Solomon
Poquo
WV Sawmiller
Old Greenhorn
Patrick NC
gspren

Anyone want to provide feedback on the three proposed dates or the venue, otherwise I'll select one of the dates in November and go with my house as the venue.  Issue with my place is that if the event is well attended (say 25+), it'll be tight.

Setting the date as November 13, 2021 at my house in Virginia Beach.  Time is TBD, but lets say noon-ish for now.

I need a relatively accurate headcount to plan for food/drink.  Please RSVP by November 1 by replying to this thread with how many adults and children under 16.

PM me for my address.

No agenda at this point.  The intention has always been a meet and greet on the East coast to put faces with names in person over food and drink.

Put me in for 2 adults.  Will watch for date and if something changes I'll let you know.  BTW, I just exchanged email with Brian Bond who is professor, DONT EVEN!!, Extension Specialist, Director of the CNRE Leadership Institute
Department of Sustainable Biomaterials at Virginia Tech and he runs courses at the Richmond Expo.  I asked him if he will be running another course for drying wood and utilization of solar kilns and he said he may open up a course in spring.    This is more of a FYI, but how far is that from you?


NVM  Just looked up where that is and it's pretty far from you.

Haven't had much movement or interest in this event.  Right now, I think I have 4 attending.  Lots of the originally interested members seemed to have forgotten to respond.

At this point, I'm considering canceling as we are only 1 month out and 2 weeks from the RSVP date.  Not sure if I should PM people who were originally interested to remind them???

I  am still interested. Not sure of my life schedule though. And keep in mind ppl heading from the north will have to deal with snow. I am sure that is a turnoff for some ppl.

Sorry to say we will not be attending.  But I hope you still have the event and loads of FF Members show up.

   Sorry for no follow up lately but keep posting it you are going to have it and if so I will do everything I can for me and my wife to attend if on the 13th on November. If you need to reschedule I'll try to be flexible and make it whenever.

I haven't replied to this post as I was waiting for a customer to schedule his barn raising.
He now says it will be in Dec.
So, I should be available to drive up from NC to your event.

My wife and I are going to keep the Nov 13th date as we are about 3 weeks out.  RSVP date is about a week away.  Those that have previously expressed interest, I will reach out via PM to confirm attendance and head count.  Thank you to everyone who has responded thus far.

Unfortunately that weekend is bad for me. I wish I could come but I would end up having both kids and no wife. I am not sure I could handle that. Especially not be able to enjoy myself while always watching them.

Current count is:

Attending: 8
Regrets: 5
Tentative: 3
Waiting: 6

If you would like to attend, and haven't reached out by PM or reply, please do.

If anyone knows other members in the area that may want to attend who don't frequent the forum anymore, maybe give them a nudge  :)
