Good to hear that it was a good get-together!

Really nice turn-out!

I wish I could have made it, but I have several customers who all want their stuff sawn yesterday!

Nice pics, thanks for posting!

The next one we can have at my place and cut some slabs.
Let me know what you all think please.
Say the word. I'd be happy to do this again

What a great bunch of FF members and just a terrific time!!  Peter & Bruno were the perfect hosts for this 1st of the Northern Project get-togethers--thanks so much to them and their spouses for their efforts.  Some serious sawing/demos and we all learned something (big cheers when that oak ray-fleck showed up!!); and lots of laughs and stories--the day went by too fast.  Even the forecasted rainy weather held off until later in the day!  Already looking forward to the next one.  Hope everyone made it home safely.  All the best, Rob

After taking 9 through VT to get to NH on friday I chose to take a different route on the way home. So I drove through Killington. Much nicer drive. I did notice the closer to home I got the dumber the drivers get.

I think I need to make a trip back up there and go hike Quechee Gorge. When I drove over it, it looked amazing.

Definitely a great way to spend a weekend. I would do it again without a second thought. Thanx to everyone for making it worth the trip.

When I left home it said 6 hours took me almost 8 :) I put in start point and end point into my phone. Then threw the phone in the center console and only looked at it a couple times. 

The journey is half the fun. I have seen some pretty amazing things doing that. Plus I rarely travel the same route twice.

You have to take into account that the estimated time is based on being able to maintain the speed limit the entire way.  The GPS or computer does not take into account farm tractors on the road, pit stops, Sunday drivers, ETC.
Glad you made it both ways.

it does however take into account the parking lot on I-90 on the way home. Was pretty accurate if I actually stuck to the route. But I like to make it up as I go. If I always followed the GPS I would never see anything.

Peter, I'd like to thank you again for hosting us on Saturday. My wife and I had a great time, and will do it again whenever the next time comes. I think she got more interested in the milling than she expected to, and had a good time. We took the scenic route on the way home. I owed her for letting me come, so we went to L.L.Bean in Concord on the way home; but then I drug her up to my aunt's old place in Warner to see how time has changed it (not really for the better). My aunt passed away in '66, and my mother sold the house to the neighbors that year.
  Thanks, again. Hope to see you again.
