Jeff: are Dan & Silke coming with you guys this trip? I'm bringing plenty of Yungling!

Very good question - I've extended the invitation but they haven't decided yet. I'll see if I can prod them in the right direction ....

Well, if the beer doesn't seal the deal I don't know what else will work.

Good news - it worked! They are planning on joining us, and bringing the wet plate gear too.

Good news. I have carefully maintained the old red wagon, their prop, throughout the winter. Speaking of wetplate, where is Charlie?

Red Tractors,

I think Dan hit it on the head. Welcome.

Everyone attending came for the first time at one point, even the host. This event works because people who like it come back and contribute their interest. It builds because new people come to see what it is all about and end up adding something of their own. If the event doesn’t grow, it dies. You all come and bring prints to show if you want.

In the first post I wrote, “If you have not been here before please PM me with name, address, phone, email and emergency contact in case you do something you shouldn’t have. I will return with directions and our phone number.”

I purposely copied Bill Schwab’s plan of stating various times during the event when, in theory, we would all come together. Those are Friday evening after 5 PM, 9 AM and 5 PM Saturday, and Sunday 10 AM brunch. Other times are catch as catch can.

Please ask any questions you have. Let me know if you are camping. Come and enjoy.

John & Dolly Powers

Thanks, Mr. Powers, Sir! =) Another year or two and I might try to put together a portfolio... We'll see.

The horizontal falls is Buttermilk. I made that when you and the girls met me, Lee L and That Other Lee one morning.

The square falls is Blue Hen, from the bottom and up close.


I think he's referring to Austin Powers ....

I didn't think John wanted to make his other identity public...?
Nice job, Jeff.
:p
