Definitely worth it.  8) :) But, as I replied to the Facebook page, I can't make the trip this year. ;) When that saw got factored into my trip, I got a free vacation to Roast 2010. ;)

As Arnold would say, "I'll be back".
Move'n on.

The better half made reservations at Harrison's finest 5 star motel, so I suppose we will be there.
 I think that makes  11.
Dang Steve, your number was below 10, so you didn't have to take your shoes off for your count. :(

   Well I'm still hoping to go and to bring three along for the ride. Unfortunately, a family situation does not allow me to make a firm commitment at this time. I'll say a better than 50% chance though.

Lindy and I are coming. We decided to drive it instead of flying. Will be cheaper in the long run to drive when you figure in a rental car from the airport. Cheapest air I could find was $340 per head one way. By the time we drive to the closest airport we're already 2 hours toward being there. Road trip it is. Never dorve in yankee land. Ya'll do drive on the right side of the road don't you?

Pig weeds or pig roast? this is my question. We're having an outright war with herbicide-resistant pigweeds; it is a mattter of keeping the upper hand throughout the growing season else, there may be no crop! We cannot even begin to think of a vacation, we had plans to go out to the Tree Farm Conference in, I believe, New Mexico. The wife says she's taking the grandkids to Branson with or without me in August. But thank-you for the invite anyways.

We are thinking of coming. Sorry cant say for sure yet. The big problem is that we have to take our daughter to CMU the week before and so the very next weekend we'll have to drive up to the same area. Not sure if I can leave 2 weekends in a row.

  Hi Jeff, Ronda and I are planning on coming. We are going to be camping east of  Grayling on Thursday through Sunday so on Saturday we will drive down to Harrison.
  I am planning on driving the old woodburner up if I can get the electrical problems worked out in time, when we came up last time the generator quit working so we replaced it with a larger alternator and the old wiring cant handle it.
 Looking forward to having a good time, good food and meeting you all.

Just found out today that I will be going to the GovEnergy show in Cincinnati the 7th thru 10th.  That means I must leave for Cincinnati on the 6th.  So, we are not going to be there this year.

Sorry Steve, but no egg rolls for you this year.

I recommend Hidden Hill.  Nice place and just a few minutes from Jeff's house.

Thanks DR_Buck.

We are still deciding on some details.  My "de-tail" was replacing the refrigerator in the RV yesterday.  I don't know which one was worse.  The work involved or the buying/paying.
