    My guess has always been a total of 20-30.....and, of course, some of the public and some of our long-term members will be there anyway. As an example, the SmartStove thingy from Dan was largely developed as a result of Dan hanging here and gathering feedback, etc.....

    All I know is that Mike Holton, BB, BG, Hog and you are gonna be there. That would be more than enough to get my arse down there...I hope many others show too.

    This event, IMHO, marks the start of a new era for the wood burning community in this country. I probably won't be around to be in the middle of it, but it makes my heart (and hearth) glad to see a New Day starting...makes me feel like all this work ended up being for something.

    I have a one bedroom suite reserved figuring we can gather there after the Mall and talk about those who aren't there. Be forewarned, it is a smoking room. If smoke bugs ya, well what the hell are you doing on a wood burning site in the first place? >>

    Non-smokers can meet on the sidewalk out front. To see what it is like for us smokers. ;lol

    Well, both my wife and my birthdays are coming up later this week and the numbers keep climbing. Maybe we won't be around either but it is nice thinking we will still see some great things.

    With some of the folks and new stoves, this thing should really be great.

    Yeah, that looks good. I have to check in with them about letting a bunch of noisy pigs and haorders hearth folks take it over. There are probably some side rooms off of it which we may be able to use for free or a low fee.....once I remind them that we have booked quite a few rooms.

    So I told my wife the wood guys are meeting in Washington and did she want to go. She said what are you guys protesting and what if you get arrested.

    She's always up for a trip, so were in. Wood stoves, meet and great the wood guys it doesn't get any better. We are going to take the train from NJ to Union Station and the Metro.

    XMAN23, Tom and Sue

    Any list of who's going?

    Wish I could go do this but I'm booked. It would be really awesome if one of you guys could make some videos / interviews with the top entries in the stove design competition, I would really like to see what they have done.

    I think Backwoods may be starting a list, but my guess is that we'll have more people than just the list....also, some of the guys in the actual competition are friends and hearth.com folks, etc.....so it's all good. Everyone there will be woodsy!

    I heard a rumor about a more "efficient" smoker being involved and that pulled pork will be on the menu?

    I'm having pulled tofu and seitan catered in (;)) - is that what you are talking about? We wash it down with soy milk and near-beer.
