    Think you mean me (Brian), not sure Kurt's up that way unless he added something to his schedule recently.

    Kurt, Keep us posted on the Londonderry, NH Seminar.

    For me, that's 53 miles closer than Bushnell Basin. 53 x 2 = 106 miles saved. My vehicle gets about 17.5 MPG, so that's 6.06 gallons of gas. Gas is $3.94 for mid-grade right now, so that's $23.88 saved on fuel. At $4.50 for a pint of beer, that's 5.3 COLD BEERS! New math is easy when you use BEER instead of apples and oranges!

    Don't worry if your back hurts after shoveling .......you can use the hot tub after you finish to relax.

    I think Brian is up your way somtime this year but, " Why not Minot" one more time after 30 years absence. I would like to put one in up there but, need someone to act as a host agency? Still have a couple of dates I could do it though.

    Now that's a twist, I use mine here after mowing yard. We just don't turn on the heat is all. I don't suppose it would be filled with college coeds would it?LOL!

    Hey, I was at one of Kurts seminars last night, and there was no snow in sight, and gotta admit, he is a pretty good singer, and I had only had one drink.

    It was nice having a "one on one seminar" with you Derrick. Hope the rest of your stay in FL is good. Don't wear yourself out!

    Wink

    Like Groundhog Day? He'll wake up in Valley Center, KS on the 5th? Then again on the 5th? And again on the 5th? And the next day on the 5th?

    Damn things are slow on this Friday afternoon......

    OK now we're in trouble. I'll be running across SD while Kurt's in ND. Not sure if we'll break into ND but looks like Sioux Falls, Aberdeen, and Rapid City SD are on the books for Jan 7-10. Western MN, KS, IA, NE locations will be posted soon, probably will be the next week(s) after. Might have to alternate the tundra locations with the two guys I'm bringing on to help teach so none of us freeze.

    I have been saving up for a trip to Andy Thornnall Expedition Outfitters here in Winter Haven. They are the local Columbia Sportswear dealer . I have my eye on one of those super-duper jackets that can go from a windbreaker all the way to Eskimo status just for taking on the road this year.

    Yes, twice even. Looks like they'll be on the road for us in Jan & Feb mostly when the demand is highest. Despite my best efforts can't be in two places at once. Already have 13 locations confirmed before Xmas, will probably be teaching one myself virtually every day in Jan & Feb so another 40-50 there with just me, probably 10-20 at least with the clones. People want workshops, free is the right price for most folks, sponsor is on board with as many as we can deliver so had to expand the talent pool. I figured that I can't be much of an instructor if I can't teach someone else to be one. Both have been successful in their own right and will be introduced shortly once we get the details hammered out.

    Better toss in a lucrative pension plan to seal the deal.
