    working out details, wife has another hernia, will probably be another surgery, BUT it may well be after the dc thing, if so its quite possible my bride may be joining me up there, probably will get a room at the hilton mentioned above

    as of now i'd say im 8 of 10 gonna be there, only thing that would stop me at this point is if she has surgery at that time, and im not thinking thats gonna be the case.

    Hope not! You are one of the advertised specials........then again, life could get in the way of any of us, but enough will be there to be worth the while.

    Wish I could make it, sounds very interesting and would like to finally meet everyone face to face. Were so busy if I left my wife Annette here alone, I might not have a home to come back to, so I'll pass. Wish you could do this kind of stuff at the HPBA Show in Salt Lake City in March when things slow down and we can come up for air! That would be more centrally located for everyone, the dealers and manufactures would then be there and we could have a bigger turn out. I'll buy the first round of brewskies!
    Be well!

    I was there shortly after they left Philadelphia and signing the Declaration. My job was with a shovel and they wanted me to shovel the exhaust that came out the back of the engines that pulled the stagecoaches.

    Ah, the perils of not saving the date. I finally look to see which saturday this event was again, and in the interim my wife schedules our son's birthday party for the same day at 4. The only other scheduled weekend event I've had in I don't know how many months. Guess I'll have to come down early or late.

    Some will still be around on Sunday I am sure, just a thought if you can't make it on Saturday.

    I am thinking about coming up on Sunday and staying Sunday night. What are some cheap lodging options? I would like to keep from driving in the city as much as possible (one road one car guy here). Somewhere not too far from a metro station would be nice.

    The after-party is now scheduled for 8:30 to 10:30 at the Hilton Garden Inn downtown, so you may be able to make that. That could end up being just me and a couple mods and you...or, it could end up being 40 people! We don't know. If it's 40, grab the food fast.......

    Reservations are made at the Hilton. My wife and I are coming from NJ Friday. Might take the train just for something different, but it's a bit pricey. See Y'all Saturday. Tom and Sue

    Great. See ya there Saturday. Train right into Union Station and Metro subway to the hotel is the way to go. Parking at that hotel is pricey too.

    Standard buffet fare is pretty safe from me. Now, if you were actually going to have pulled tofu, that sounded good... :)
