    A few years back I was a regualr on Dodge Charger.com. Same type of forum, different topic. The beauty part was that in the summer you could meet up with other forum members if you attended the regional car shows. Talk, hang out, check out each other's rides. I see no such opportunity for us in the Hearth.com community. So, following hot on the heals of the widely popular "Who's your daddy and what does he do?" thread, I mean, "who are you, where are you from...." here's an idea. Post a picture of your smiling mug for all your "wood stove friends" to see. Unless, of course you're afrad that your dirty little secret (Hearth.com addiction) will be made public. Aren't you the least bit curious...is Browningbar really a very intelligent collie who can not only read and type but operate 3 stoves. Is -Katleen- really a super hot ski bunny masquerading as a chicken this year. Is BB really a cartoon character from a tool catalog? Soupy and Backwoods you're exempt. But the rest of you...post up...if you dare.

    I'll be the first to reveal my true identity.

    This first photo is entitled, "Why I Got Rid of the Pellet Stove". My wife and I posed for the second photo several years ago...

    Much like your regional car shows and Charger.com, I belong to several fishing sites that have get togethers "rodeo's" where people camp and fish. It's a great time. It's good to put a face and shake the hand of guys you've been on the forum with.

    I was thinking for hearth.com, it would be interesting to have a get together to do some cutting and splitting. I know there's a ton of guys in Northern NJ, pocono's, and Hudson area of NY. If I had the means, I would set a date, order a graple load and have everyone over to cut and split a load to take home a bed full of splits and we'd cook out. Guys could show off their saws, splitters, and fiskars. Something like this would be fun, maybe when the weather is better. Kind of a Hearth.com rodeo. Since I am fairly new around here - I wonder if this has been done before ?

    Anyway, this is me. All my pictures seem to have fish in them.

    Nah, but I had to disconnect it from the flue and pull it out to vacuum from the back. It was a mess, with soot everywhere.

    My wife's convinced we took years off of our lives breathing that fine soot that seemed to go everywhere when we cleaned the pellet basket, the glass, etc. The woodstove is surgically clean in comparison.

    Thanks, released him to swim and be caught another day. My brother and I did a float that day. I caught about 5 browns and maybe 50+ rainbows. It was incredible. My wife says I have more pictures of fish and wood then my own family....... ah, she's got me there.

    Who pays when someone gets hurt?
    :cheese:

    Actually, there is a little history of some very small Hearth.com meetups......buy, hey, anything more than one is an official party......

    I always thought that a neat meetup would be at the Vermont Casting foundry for a tour........they previously offered that as something they were open to.

    The only real semi-official get together was a fried turkey meeting at Gooses house - not so well attended, probably because in mid-summer everyone usually has something better to do.
    We've also had some small meetups at various equipment shows - which are also located in the right places.....usually the ones put on by Northern Logger.
    http://nefpexpo.net/
    (not exactly close by this year - it's been in VT and elsewhere).

    A few of us met at the Woodstock Soapstone plant in Sept of this year - they had a little party there. That is on the VT/NH border.

    One persons backyard, it seems, is 8 hours away from anothers!
