I'll see what I can swing in February with work and school and family life and everything. Probably not realistic. Please do keep us posted though. It'd be great to get together some time. If I can't make it, June next year for the Michigan gathering is in solid green on my calendar. No backing out of that one.
In regards to your opening I wish I could make it. I'll be out on the Minnesota prairie land that weekend on another photo geekspedition. It only says what day is the opening night on the Icebox web site, it does not say how long it's up for. You may want to have them look into that, plus I'd like to go see your show. Are you going to be in town for another night of your show? Perhaps we could hook up a little later. Be fun to say hi and admire your work together...
