Glad to see you are back on with this, after all you are the one who established the standards for how a meet a greet should be conducted! :P 54 people voted, of which 26 said the weekend of 10/24 was their choice..... sounds like you will have at least 8 of the 26. I'm 95% sure Peyton and I will be on a trip to NH that weekend.

Dave, where you been?

When I told my wife about the get-together and said the words "Coal Nerd Fest" she covered her face with her hands so I wouldn't see her laughing... :|

But I did ask if it was warm enough in here and then offered to raise the fire in the Alaska if needed.
