We got a few pictures with shopteacher today. We'll try and post them when we get home.

I also want to see what a runt frickman is. Maybe we'll send out someone to meet him at 2:00 saturday.

Today was a wet, miserable washout. At least for the guys with the outside sawmill displays. It was steady rain all day with periods of torrential downpours. It was hard for Captain to demo that Peterson mill while wearing a rain poncho. Everyone is hoping for better weather tommorow. At least we had an inside booth. We got to meet many FF members. Most of them were soaking wet.

We'll have more LogRite brownies tommorow. Stop by and ask for one.

I made it to the show and had a good time, at least while I was there. More on that later. Some high points for me:

I got to meet the guys from Log-Rite. They're great guys, and are selling some nice tools. Tamiam makes some excellent brownies too.

Woodmizer had a new, prototype band linebar resaw on display. It was a good looking piece of equipment.

Ligna demonstrated a band mill similar to the Woodmizer 300 stationary. It is called the Medor I believe, and is a massive piece of equipment. It used a blade about 3" wide.

Stihl had an impressive array of equipment on display, and a demo area where you could try the saws out. Also, they did some wood chopping demonstrations. Mel Lentz was there doing his thing.

The Northern Logger magazine had a booth set up inside. Eric Johnson, the editor, was manning it along with some other personell. He is a great guy and puts out a great magazine.

Now for the low point of the trip for me. I was returning home Saturday evening and the final drive, which works like a differential, on my little Jetta locked up on me just north of Culpepper, Va. The car would not even roll. I had it towed back into Culpepper and stayed a day or so there. A buddy of mine who is always looking for adventure brought a car trailer down and rescued me, about a four hour trip each way. He won't take money other than for fuel, he just wants a bundle of lumber some time. Sounds like a deal to me. We got home OK and I'm back at farming and sawing.

I hate to dissapoint Jeff, but I don't like getting my picture taken. Maybe I can make it to the pig roast though and meet all you guys.
