We have an interest as it would be nice to head south to some warmer climate. 
We are still not allowed to travel yet.

Are you sure about that?

Sorry VB, I just saw your PM, not sure how I missed it. Unfortunately I will have to pass this time. I am so far behind on my work and the weather is closing in, there isn't enough time left to finish what is on the plate now. That combined with my 'discretionary fun fund' being wiped out on necessities I didn't expect, kind of killed things for me. 
 I hope you guys have a great time, I will miss meeting everyone and that is my loss, sorry.

No worries guys. We've got a few people coming. We'll test it out, work out the kinks, and you can join us next year! Lol

November 8, Need to be dbl vaccinated and then you still have to test on the way back into Canada. $160 per test per person where we live. I find it interesting that governments have done millions and millions of tests. Talk about follow the money...what a scam all the way.

On the news today it was mentioned that Canadians will need the Federal vaccine "passport" to travel. 
The Canada/US border is supposed to open Nov 8th. to Canadians travelling by vehicle, but no mention of this Federal document.
No details are available on applying for the National "vaccine passport".
I have a Manitoba vaccine card and QR code, but that might/or not qualify.
I can fly to the States and back, no issues there. Could it be dirty Canadian virus-carrying vehicles that're the problem?
Americans can drive North into Canada, but Canadians can't drive South into the States.
Does this remind anyone of the old time movie where Frankenstein gets the electrical zap and slowly wakes up to his body parts and sticks a finger in his eye as he learns how to walk, etc.
Not much in the way of coordination going on at many levels !

Meanwhile, back at the ranch . . . hoping you get a bunch of folks together and have a great time!

Andries - Given your history I am not sure that you claiming you can "fly with no issues" is really an accurate thing to say.  Technically it might be if one excludes the landing portion of the event.   :D

Dang, you've seen me up in a bush plane! 
It's only the Cessna 185's on floats that give me grief - aka hard water splashdowns.

Weather forecast for Saturday is currently low of 45 and high of 61 with light westerly winds.  We'll have the fire pit on the patio going for sure.

If you want to bring a dish to share, you are certainly welcomed, but by no means being asked to.  Doesn't seem right to me to ask people traveling from far and wide to also worry about cooking.  BYOB is encouraged.  We'll have soda, water, coffee, tea, seltzers, and some juices.

Current menu is:

Mixed Salad
Quinoa Stuffed Mini Peppers
Avocado Deviled Eggs
Beef Chili
Tuscan Mac n Cheese
Honey Sriracha Chicken Wings
Crab Cake Bites with Roasted Pepper Aioli
Cranberry & Walnut Chicken Salad Sandwiches
Brownies
Peaches & Cream Cupcakes
Smores over the fire pit

   We're coming up Friday night and will find a hotel nearby then after the shindig go visit friends about 50 miles away for a day or so. I haven't picked the hotel yet but there appears to be plenty close by.

Eric,

   Thanks for hosting this. Becky and I had a blast and it was so great to meet you and Kary along with the other derelicts dignitaries  ;) who showed up.

   We made it to our friends house last night intact. Thanks again. You and the other attendees come see us in WV when you get the chance.

VB-milling made enough food for 20 and only 7 showed up.
5 were FF members. Two were friends of VB-(Eric) from his other woodworking machinery forum friends.

Here is the guests in his Urban log yard:



 
Front row left to right is: WV sawmiller (Howard), Poquo (Jeff), and Jim Rogers
Back row left to right is: PatrickNC, VB-milling(Eric) and Brian (from woodworkers forum).

Thanks to Eric's wife for taking the picture and thanks to both of them for hosting a great afternoon of chats. And of course for all that food.
