Thanks everyone that showed up and hope to see you next year for those that couldn't make it. I didn't take a head count but it was about 20 or 25 people. Now I'm going to go nurse my aching head. :)

I had a great time! Awesome bunch of fellas. I have pictures to post and a video of stoker Don's unit. I will get to it when I get home. I counted 30 people at one point but some came and left at different points thru the day too.

It was funny how we chose to stand around the stoker instead of the camp fire for most of the evening hahaha. We're some serious coal heads!!

Thank you for everyone who bought a shirt :) I have some left, pm me if you want one.

Everyone,

I had a great time at the Meet & Greet, It was realy nice to finaly "talk" to you guys and gals rather than "type" to you. Richard and J took good care of us even through the night, fighting off all those Noxin rattle snakes. None of us were eaten or drug off into the woods by the snakes.

The food was great and plentyful. Richards father brought some great pickled garlic and other pickled veggies.

I'm glad everyone enjoyed the small camp heater I brought. It looks like evryone else's pictures came out better than mine! Anyway, I'll post the best of what I have here.

The evening coal fired marshmellow roast.
