My goal is to get Wosbald to agree to a smoke and a chat. He's only 90 miles away and I'd drive in a heartbeat to meet him.
I hope someday to meet you both along with about 25 or 30 others.
What we need to do is have 30 guys descend on the tick farm.
I could do a tick farm meet-up. For my part I'd bring up about 100 lbs of crawfish and the seasoning to go with it. Some wild hog sausage too perhaps.
I would love to figure out a trip to Missouri.

One day I'd like to just show up at the Chicago Pipe Show and see if anyone would know who I was. I fear you'd all be terribly disappointed.

Well, we should probably make sure Rm and Mrs Rm are down with an invasion.

If they are, I say we start planning the invasion.

GaryNowinTexas and me this afternoon (Rita, too, but she thought we were too handsome to be photo'd with). We met for lunch, some of the best BBQ I ever put in my face, and then put our feet-up and visited for a bit at my house.

The bbq place we went to was ranked #3 by Texas Monthly. Phenomenal bbq. The couple I enjoyed it with is ranked #1 in the state of Texas. Truely a fantastic couple. The lady behind us in line probably wouldn't agree with either of these statements.
