    Dorothy,

    You mentioned on a previous visit that you might want to photograph the old dilapidated (read picturesque) 1964 trailer rotting in the field where the tents are put up. If you or anyone else wants to photograph it, please do. If a gentle breeze doesn’t do it for me I will be knocking the side walls off and using it as a flat bed trailer after you are here. My nearly new 1962 garden tractor has been giving me some expensive trouble. There is a practically show room condition 1972 tractor form Dolly’s first marriage stored in the barn that I plan to tow up on the trailer and get running again. It’s hydrostatic transmission does not allow for being towed on its own wheels much like the one in our SUV.

    Life in the country.

    My schedule looks OK for the weekend, though I can't say for sure I can make it because it sometimes turns out that as soon as plans are made, someone changes the schedule. Presuming all is OK until then I have plenty of new prints I am anxious to show to the group.

    Also, some loose ends:
    Jeff--Would you like a negative strip read by my densitometer to check yours? Or I could read a strip of yours and e-mail you the results to double check.

    Dorothy--I am still interested in a color meter if available.

    Peter--I am still interested in the rotary trimmer.

    jolefler--I can bring my Bolex H-8 Rex with the rare EE Zoom Switar if you would like to see it.

    John--Let me know if you need a hand getting the tractor running, I 'm off this weekend.

    Anyone--I can bring some LithA and LithB developer that is known to work and a 'safe' flashlight. If you bring some paper and a negative it would only take about 30 minutes to setup and run some lith prints if John has some fix and stop available. I am totally out of any paper that works for lith.

    Dale,

    Glad you have a schedule now. Congratulations. Glad that you will be coming. Thanks for the offer to help with the tractor. There are too many time consuming things to do to prepare for the event, so I plan to start that project after the gathering. I will let you know if it bogs down and help is needed. Thanks.

    My understanding from Dorothy is that the toning chemicals are not what we want going back into our well even with a trip through the septic system. She said they are pretty nasty. I don't know, but Dolly and I want to be able to attend our next gathering.

    Thanks,

    John

    Ok, I see that discussion now in the prior thread. However, my lith prints all get that orange brown color without toning. No extra steps beyond standard FB or RC paper processing. Thats one of the things that makes it such a neat process.

    Thanks IC!

    I'd love to handle the Bolex to feel a really quality machine! I can't guarantee I'll be along for this one, though. Been pretty lame lately, but that can change.

    John, I'd just be dropping in for a day/part evening gathering to enjoy the conversations and see some work (not to mention meeting all these folks and fondling Dale's Bolex!)

    Please bring the prize winner unless it is still on display or sold. I am trying to remember which one it is and think we really shouldn't have to remember. Besides with my senior brain there are no memories. A winner like yours deserves a repeat performance.

    House rule #3 also applies to tambourines, especially on top of the house.

    Glad to have you back.

    John

    Edit PS, our messages overlapped. We will count on you camping. As soon as we get a further head count I will call the porta potty people.
    The prize winner didn't sell, but the one I entered in the lily show did. Today at the reception. oooohhh - more $ for film!

    With Daniel joining us I am reminded that he and I had remarkably different, but enjoyable interpretations of O’Neal Lake, two years running at Bill Schwab’s Photostock gathering. That led me to question, would you as a group like to go to a lovely pond to shoot at sun set after dinner Saturday? We could do show and tell at the house in the afternoon.

    The park with this pond is four miles from our house on the way to the town of Peninsula. We could have an early dinner in Peninsula, hike into Sylvan Pond at Oak Hill Park. The hike is ½ mile one way on a fairly level trail that is a mixture of gravel and hard packed dirt. Are you interested? Can you move your gear one mile round trip? My jogger would be available if one person needs it. It can handle one set of gear with tripod for 4x5 up through 7x17. It works best with a tripod that has spikes to go through the running board. Here is someone’s idea of the pond. http://www.flickr.com/photos/bijouhamham/3623975996/

    Give me your thoughts please.

    John

    I received an email that the Steckmeyers, Bob and Ann will be joining us with an interest in the Ledges and the Farmer's Market. They are having trouble getting on APUG. I put in a service request. No doubt they will have more to say when that is resolved.

    John.

    The pond sounds nice. We are also planning on coming in Friday night, so we can go and shoot at the ledges early Saturday morning with anyone interested. Really, we'll go for whatever the group is up for.

    The bacon ice cream batch is made up and ready to be churned. Yum!
