I’m so excited, Karson is on the way to see me on Friday. He left Delware Tuesday, and is in Kansas City now. He called today to work out the logistics. We had hoped that Joshua Stewart could come along for the trip, but his wife is due to have a baby today, so I think he is out, although I don’t understand his priorities ( just kidding Joshua). Kev is planning to drive up from Wichita. So, with “wife” here, me, Karson, and Kev, there will be at least 4 lumberjocks in the same place at the same time, having a picnic at my place. We’ll post photos. Karson is already working on what he wants pictures of for his blog about the trip. Should be fun. He is stoked since he won the Joinery competition for the Summer Challenge. Even being out of town today, he was able to find the results this morning.

I wish more of you could come also on Friday, maybe another time.

Joshua: let us know how things go with the wife and Child #1. Congrats!

It sounds like the dust will fly! Just sitting and talking with someone that has the same passion as ones self is enough but to know them also makes it even better. I’m with Don on this one; I wish I could be there.
