    While we were hanging out, a couple G4's and other corporate jets taxied right past the shindig - the airport is right across the street.
    Maybe next year we can send one around the east to pick up BB, Jags and others who are a bit too far!
    :cheese:

    But it will require lots of clicking on ads....

    You could save a few bucks and send out a hot air balloon for them. Lord knows there would be enough hot air to fly the thing! This one came in while we were tailgating.

    I brought a couple just in case...I try to plan for contingencies.

    Maybe there would have two tables who insisted on having BB sit there, etc....

    We got lost on the way there, so I opened the car window and just followed the sound. Led me right to her.

    Must be a good workout, look at those buff arms underneath the sleeves of that blouse! I actually caught her running out the back door with the demo Progress Hybrid in her arms, but I convinced her to put it back.

    They snookered you into feeling sorry for them. I don't know of any booze you can't get in NH. That's why I cross the river to get mine.

    They will have a Englander 30NC with a short flue pipe in the basket providing lift for the balloon instead of fuel tanks. It will only require 6 splits to make the trip.

    If they used a Blaze King King it could orbit the earth 6 times before refueling! :)

    I could have bought 2 new Hybrid Progress stoves for what they are worth....

    I have to tell you guys I was a bit embarrassed when some of the employees knew my name was Gamma Ray right off.... :red:
    It could have been a good or bad thang.....not sure, but the employees were so cool there.
    BTW....the NH accent is sexy..... ;-P I also noticed a lot of young men there with full, long beards...equally sexy... ;-)

    It was a pleasure ciccio meeting you as well as your beautiful wife. I am glad we had an opportunity to talk about the great customer service you received from the folks at Woodstock. Actually you should tell the other burners here about the great service...
    Looking forward to hearing your progress on "The Progress".....

    I don't get why some of you guys hate ash pans so much. One of the main reasons I got rid of my Fireview was no ash pan. Why put up with the mess and hot fly ash floating around the room. If this new stoves ash pan is as good as the Keystone ash pan I'd get it in a heart beat.

    My opinion is based on using 4 different stoves. The Encore's ash pan seems good, but I would not pay extra for it or make it something that I would include in in my purchasing decision. In fact, the easiest stove to remove ash from is the Vigilant, which has no ash pan, just a really big mouth.

    Do I hate ash pans? No. Do I find them important or a must-have? No. The time it takes me to scope out three or four shovels of ash is the same amount of time it takes me to empty an ash pan.

    Well for one thing, I'm interested in the plinth base if I get one, so no option there anyway. :coolsmile:

    Gee, when I accidentally buggered up my full beard 15 minutes before my son's wedding and ended up with this face-do, I kept it because all the gals told me it was sexy. Now that means a lot to a broke down old codger like me, so I kept it for the last year and a half.

    So you're saying the full beard trumps the goatee in the sex appeal dept? Full beard... goatee... full beard... goatee... what's a poor fella to do?

    Ha, ha! Ya, you should see the cool burn marks on her forearms now. Like that old TV show, Kung Fu, where Kaine carries the flaming cauldron out of the temple, then plunges his arms into the snow, remember? Only we didn't have any snow, so we stuck her arms in Pen's cooler.

    The ash pan on my quad allows me to go another week or two without cleaning the ashes out. I consider it more of an additional reservoir than anything. That being said, I have seen ash pans that require a plug to pull and then shoving them down some dang hole. I won't be doing any of that.

    Exactly. I usually pull the pan a couple times a week on the smaller Keystone, but I like being able to just run a poker across the bottom of the firebox rather than shovel it out to get my full firebox volume back. Knowing me, I would keep stalling until the thing was half full of ash.
    :lol:
    That said, can't wait for the burning to begin and the reports to be posted on the PH! :coolsmile:

    My T-5 came with an ash pan and what they call an ash dump chute.. I figure it will be handy during the times I run 24/7 so I can reduce the ashes until a convenient time to dump them.. Would I pay extra for an ash pan, nope I can live without it and never used it on my CDW.. As for the Progress Hybrid I think it looks better without it and I'd prefer shorter legs and no ash pan.. If I could talk my wife into it I'd buy one but I doubt that will happen!
