BTW, has anyone looked into the technical issues that may occur when a whole lot of people post in one forum in a short timeframe? :thinking:

Just thinking out loud.

Last year I think we had somewhere between 150 and 200 users on at the same time, and no problems...

So bring on the posts! :lol:

I can probably fire a couple of pieces. I'll see if I can get my old Optimus backpacking stove to fire up.

I'll light my kerosene too!

Jack,
You're absolutely right.
I worked on a building a couple of weeks ago that was right next to one of those 215 dispenseraries... Non stop foot traffic the whole time I was there. Was even given the name of a doctor to go see to get a card for my arthritis.
U-Haul trucks showed up each day to off load shipments.
My how times have changed...

Jeremy,
Not playing with any lanterns until the tear is finished.

Will be at the Dam, but without petroglyphs on the roof... That's gonna take some time 'cause I want them to tell a collective story.
Will have to do the roof treatment at a later date.
