Also, thanks to all the members and the great ideas they offer - both here and in person. Hmmm.... will the next project be adding a boiler and a heat exchanger or plumb the first floor with HW baseboard, a DHW coil or will it be the Koker cut into the ductwork?
What a day and there was the nightcap ... the Phillies won game three!
Thanks again to all, and again to J.C. (wondering if he's awake yet!) and Richard for making it all possible.
See ya next time!

The weather didn't cooperate, but it was an enjoyable time for about 20 forum members. Thanks to coal berner for planning out the activities.

Next year it yuengling breawery for me Dont get me wrong, I am so glad I decided to do keystoker tour.

Yance never took that group photo That would have been nice.

My 1400# of Superior rice made it home and is put away, waiting to make heat this winter. I appreciate the chance to spend a weekend with the experts and look forward to doing it again sometime!
