    What I want to swap trade is not legal in DC. A stove liner is though.

    i would think if those in the garden could hear em those 47's would have been music to their ears.

    i still look back at the links you sent me bro,

    i think the creed accepted by the Nightstalkers as their own fits this perfectly. comes from Isaiah 6:8 Then I heard the voice of the Lord saying, “Whom shall I send? And who will go for us?
    And I said, “Here am I. Send me!” methinks you would have fit in quite well in the TF bro

    When those Hooks came in there were tears in a lot of eyes. The crews and those ships were in Iraq three years later.

    With their new call sign resurrected after it had been retired in 1991. Me and one of our pilots went to Ft. Eustis to hand it off to them in a ceremony after the DOA approved it.

    This thread appears to be a bit off track.

    DC brings out the pomp and circumstance!
    :cool:

    I think any red blooded American (and many others) cannot remain unaffected when seeing the power, glory and history of the USA enshrined in such place (monuments, cemeteries, etc. )......

    Anyway, just confirming that we are still planning, as per the OP and this thread (which is where the official updates will be) - for Sat, Nov. 16 afternoon!

    I will be that way this weekend, taking the kids to the National zoo and the Smithsonian, any idea on the exact place it will be held at? I could get some pics of it so people know where to go.

    The "Mall" is pretty long, guess one could just follow the smoke, but alas there will be none.

    As usual found the answer to my question, just had to dig for it.

    Parking is limited near the Mall, but we will be located right next to the Smithsonian Metro Stop on the Orange and Blue lines. Or take a taxi to the corner of Jefferson Drive and 12th Street SW.

    Btw, anyone heard if Mike H. will be bringing his Big Green Egg? You know he has to have some automation controls on that as well.

    Here is the location advice from John at forgreenheat
    "Its on the Mall, right at the Smithsonian Metro stop, in front of the Whitten USDA building. Here is link: https://www.facebook.com/events/667753249920623/.
    Ask folks to RSVP there as well. Not required, but helps to build interest as you can see who else is coming"

    This event sounds fun but I don't think I will attend. Not much for big cities for anything other than work..
