Sorry Dail, No Trains. Not even any tracks any more! :D

ANNOUNCEMENT!

And I will be saying this again. PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE  dont transport any type of firewood or log to the pig roast.  Trying to Transport wood  through Michigan is NOT a good idea at all with the current regulations on transporting firewood in Michigan due to the Emerald Ash Borer.

ARKANSAWYER and anyone else that is entertaining thoughts of bringing any kind of wood in firewood or log form, You could and most likely WILL find yourself facing big fines for simply transporting that hickory or what ever through an Emerald Ash Borer quarantine zone that you WILL have to travel through.  Such a situation woulf not be good for you or at all good for the Forestry Forum.
Just call me the midget doctor.

It's official! My lovely bride has gotten the weekend off. We will both be at the Piggy Roast! 8)
Time to make reservations, plan our route (looks easy) and gas up the car! What can I bring Jeff?
I will be driving thru Canada so we can not bring fresh fruits or veggies.
The Piggy roast on Saturday, Yankees / Blue jays on Sunday, what a weekend! WOO HOO!

According to the MI quarantine, you cannot move logs of any kind if their final product will be firewood.  FYI.

On a more personal note, I just found out that I am being shipped out for 8 weeks training to Maryland on 8/2.  Guess I will be missing the roast, just like I missed SAWLEX.... :'(

Send me a case Erin, we'll do it!  Actually, Sharon was going to give Tammy a case at Sawlex, but the Ohio folks that ran the exhibit on saturday, packed up and left without leaving one for her.

 I was typing that while I was making the reservation.

We have the room for Friday and Satruday nights. She says it is walking distance to your place!

I had typed out a reply to Jon saying that he will enjoy that place but would be disappointed if he's into cliff diving.  I got to thinking that Mark M.  was probably the only one that appreciated my er-uh-cliff diving,  so I didn'[t poke the post button.  Our family along with One-with -wood and wife and Paul H and his son Tom had a delightful breakfast together with Mark at that place.  I'm lonesome for him.

Pretty sure that transporting lumber is not a problem long as it is NOT ash, and it does not originate within a quarantine area.

Not trying to be difficult at all, just responsible as the EAB is a serious, serious problem and as Forestry Forum members, we should certainly take the lead where we can in spreading the word and walking the walk.
