    Wisconsin - Illinois' largest park.

    Go Bears!

    Edit: I have no idea why I just stirred the pot. It must be the pictures of the cheese hats and green shirts going through my head.

    This sounds like a great time...I'm in, provided I am not in MN on the 19th.
    Roxbury is only four townships away for me...practically next door as far as hearth.com goes.

    I had to drive up by the river just west of Lake Wisconsin today (Lodi technically). Took 188 from hwy 12 just south of sauk. Saw the Roxbury ---> this way sign and thought of this coming up. Also drove past my favorite OWB install so I decided to pull over and take a picture.

    I bets its really convenient having it right next to the building like that :)

    I am stuck in Lodi but not too sad about it.

    Wendell and I had a preview at the Roxbury today. We had to make sure the
    beer still tasted good and let them know that the wood burners are coming soon.

    "Wood burners" There went the element of surprise. The establishment is going to be watching us like a hawk. Under a microscope and drinking beer could give one indigestion.

    Here's the info again.

    As a celebration of all things wood related, we will be holding a get together for everyone who would like to enjoy some great company and cold beer at the Roxbury Tavern, just northeast of the greater Madison metroplex wink at noon on September 19th.

    Make your plans now so you don’t miss this surely life changing event! (Jags, even you are welcome to come even though you live in Illinois!)

    I was hoping there was a slim chance we would be on our way to Omaha and could stop in on our way out. Sad to say it is not going to work out, but we wish you all a good time. Have fun!

    Talked to my pops tonight and he's got a tee time set up for us already on Saturday. Sorry guys. I was hoping it would work out, but doesn't look like this year for me.

    Welp - thanks for the invite, but it looks like I will be headed west for that weekend. Darn it, I'm stuck having to go fishing and all that jazz all weekend. Bummer.

    I really was looking forward to meeting up with you folks, but the other half insisted that I go fishing (so she could go to the cabin with me).

    gonna have to give me a rain check on this one also.

    da wife decided that I'm gonna be at a birthday party as noon on Saturday.

    since it is for my 1 year old son I'm pretty sure that out ranks a gathering of Woodland folk.

    should have another gathering in January or so. when there's less activites going on and people are looking for a reason to get out of the house.

    Sublime out.

    Have a Spotted Cow on me though.

    yea I was hoping to be able to attend but September is one busy month,
    last of the summer like weekends and cookouts and party's and football games.
    also finishing up all them spring/summer projects that I started and never got completed.


    plus I try to get a jump on my woodcutting for the year. LOL

    That's rather ironic because we picked this date specifically as we figured everyone would have their wood put up and wouldn't be burning yet so you'd all be sitting around with nothing to do! :lol:
