Thoughts on a TPW gathering?

Recommended Posts

A bit far for me, but best of luck if you can get this together Fred.  "Knowing" the guys that usually hang out here I cannot fathom it turning into a disaster.

 

Now, about that disparaging comment you made towards us good ol' boys...:D

About any time is fine with me.     Have been to a few of Stumpy Knub's Gatherings, the last few years...They were a "arrive on Friday, leave by Sunday sort of things...camped or motel rooms...LJ's supplied the $$$ for the food and drinks...usually had a "swap meet" happen as well.

I should have mentioned this in my first post, I'm thinking we would do this summer/early fall. Say from June into maybe Sept. to allow plenty of time for the planning and working our dates.

Sounds like fun, but a little to far for me

Everything would depend on date, anything that would come up or if my wife would have to work.

It's about hour and 45 min drive for me.

I'm in and if Dave and Krummy are up for it, I'll drive.  You're about 2 hours for me.  I vote for a Saturday

Could it pick me up first, THEN head for Florida? I could sure use some warm air.

John

Oh, wait........... we're talking summertime. NEVER MIND!

I'd be MORE than willing to trade some "warmth and sunshine" (along with all of the humidity) for some of your weather! When I think back at hating it being 90°F with 35% humidity in August and thinking I was going to die in that hay field...I didn't know how good I had it. Below 0° never bothered me, I just don't miss the snow and the trees not having leaves until the middle of May.

You got yourself a deal. Cold didn't bother me so much when I was younger; previous career worked outside a lot during the cold. Nothing woke you up like cold diesel fuel running down your arm while trying to clean out a gelled fuel system.

 

Even the snow wasn't bad (in moderation) when out cutting firewood all weekend. I always knew there would be a hot shower, hot bowl of chili, hot coffee and the warmth from the wood stove...Of course that was then, when I was younger. The sub-zero temps along with the 40-60% humidity and the wind penetrates deep into old bones & joints from all the abuse they took when I was young. Yeah the 90o+ & 90%+ humidity can be brutal too, but I don't have to have on 4 layers of clothes, gloves, hats to endure it. Plus ya' can stick your tongue on a flag-pole if ya' want to do that also.

...you can always put it on, but you can only take so much off!

 

I never liked wearing a hat. It had to be below 0° or really windy before I would wear one. Now, my feet were another story...thank God for "felt pacs". :rolleyes:

Who We Are

Operation Ward 57 Challenge Coin Display Project

We are a woodworking community with an emphasis on sharing and learning the skilled craft of woodworking and all of its related disciplines. Our community is open to everyone who wishes to join us. We support our American veterans and active duty, being a veteran is not a prerequisite to join. Join us now!

Objective

Air Force Command Center Plaque

Of course just like most online woodworking communities we are centralized in the arts, crafts, and trades that are woodworking. But, we have another focus in our Patriot Woodworker community, we are the only woodworking community that was founded on our care and concern for our disabled veterans.

Volunteer

Patriot Woodworker Volunteers

The Patriot Woodworkers are an all volunteer community, from the staff and hosts who run our online woodworking community to the members who frequent our forums, you'll find volunteers in all of us. We are not on a payroll, unless you consider the spiritual rewards gained from volunteering, as compensation.

Education

Logging

One of the many projects we are working on is a wiki for our online community. A wiki is a great way for woodworkers and enthusiasts to share their knowledge to others, and to impart their knowledge for others to learn from, and utilize as well for their own benefit. We hope you'll consider being a wiki contributor.
