Cabin Fever 2020
« on: November 26, 2019, 02:31:57 PM »
Its getting close to time for the next Cabin Fever Expo. Jan 17-19.

Can you believe its almost 2020? 

I have been working on a model boat  that I hope will be ready in time. I talked to Jared Schoenly about the boat pond. They are still trying to decide  if its is worth the effort to install the pond. The last couple years the activity around the pond seems to have fallen off, and the 'dirt pile' guys are booming. The pond takes a lot of floor space.

Anyone else think the boat pond is worth having? Anyone planning to bring a boat?

Put the dirt pile next to the pond, with barges holding excavators?

Unless he has alternate use for the space, keep the pond.  Judging from last year's activity is a poor idea given the weather forecast that kept a good pany people away.

I have a room reserved at the Hampton Inn.  Still unsure if I'll fly or drive.

Got my room booked and will arrive early Friday morning. Look forward to seeing everyone. Anyone coming in late let us know so we can save spots.

If the pond isn't worth the trouble  maybe they could spread out the model exhibitors a little. I went down a few years ago to check things out to possibly show for the next year. The models were so packed in that it turned me off to displaying anything. I did enjoy looking around but I wouldn't want to be that packed in all weekend.

Just a thought.

Keep the pond.
Even if no one shows, it's an enticement. Or, as in my case when I've seen it, provides imagination.

I hope to be there. Last year I got my weekends mixed up and missed it.
This year I have to schedule shoulder surgery. Putting it off means not helping T in the garden. (Not a bad thing on one hand but very very bad on the other. IF you know what I mean.)
I was told it was 8-12 weeks for recovery.

Anyway, I hope to see many friends. It's been a while.

I'd rather join you in England.  :LittleDevil:

Luckily I've managed timing such that I should be able to attend the expo.
Stress test on the 15th, surgery on the 27th, and best of all...expo is on a Saturday and I'm off from daycare for new grandson.

That doesn't sound right...but 5 days a week providing daycare is taking a toll...as much as the little fellow is such a happy delightful kid.
(First male in my family and it's an interesting experience. I have two daughters...and I always wanted daughters. They tend to stay close to the family and, so far, that's been the case. My daughters are wonderful. Their husbands?...always suspect.)

Zee,
Good luck with the surgery. I've got extra screws in my left glenoid so I know that's no fun. Sure you can't run a hoe with one hand, maybe you can get the shop gnomes to help. On second though never mind the gnomes helping.

Jared has told me the pond will be there. I have two models ready to go and a new one that may be there- maybe not all finished paint and trim, but runable.

I am now looking for 'stuff' I can bring to the consignment sale to sell. Its always a toss up if I sell more than I buy. Its a good chance to trade some old junk for new.

 I am really looking forward to Cabin Fever 2020 as I missed it last year. Reservations have been made, and I should arrive about 11:00 Friday morning depending on the traffic and weather. Please save me about 8 feet of table space with the MEM group. See you in a few days. Thanks.
