    Latest from Chris at Vt Wood Pellets:
    "We typically run 24 hours 6 days a week from Sunday night at 5 pm until the following Saturday at 7pm. I will check with our production manager, Rick, to see what his scheduling plans are for the holidays."

    Remember from Central Ct, looking at a 3-4 hour drive in good weather each way, plus plant tour and BS time.

    a noon time tour on a saturday would probably be ideal... well, for me at least. leave CT for 8 ish am and be there for noon, do a lunch or something after, and be home for dinner.

    Have asked about a Saturday noon (or later) tour.
    Will post his reply.
    We should get a consensus on a date or dates.

    You guys need help, seriously..I think the pellet pig club offers some type of 12 step program for this.

    If however, somebody can work in a brewery tour..let's say before or after the pellet mill tour (or both!), then count me in! It is after all, in my neck of the woods ;)

    I'd be down for a trip to MWP. My schedule is pretty flexible so I'd be available at whatever time is best for everyone else.
    Someone should probably start a separate thread though...

    Just got email back from Vt Wood Pellets...
    "Back from Wisconsin, tanned, rested and ready. OK no tan. Anyway, Saturday noon works fine. Do you have any dates yet?"
    Now it's up to us. Any thoughts?

    I would like to get a general concensus of a date. If not I will just come up with one and that will be it. As I am probably the closest
    (about 20 min). I think whomever is coming from the futher distances should have a say.
