Jag, unless you agree to show up as a roommate, my Tree House might go unoccupied I guess.
You live across the country, and I just live down the road from there, but from what I have picked up here - being in a Tree House is crap. I am by nature a hermit, but I can do that at home.
I never met anyone who is going, and I am kinda shy. My guess is that I would go there and spend most of my time wondering what is going on with my Beagle as I sat alone in a tree house. I know the scenery is great there cause I see it everyday - here.
Bill, I am sorry to hear that the soon to be other half won't be making it. That's a bummer and best wishes to her Dad.
That said, come on out. The original Carverfest only had 14 folks that came. All 14 folks had never met each other before. You know what it was like? It was like we had known each other all of our lives and it was one of the best times I have had in my life. Those who were there, I can guarantee would say the same thing. It was only awkward for.........oh, about the first 20 minutes. Once we started talking about stereos and food? That was all she wrote. A brotherhood had formed and we were off. The rest is history.
There is absolutely no reason to be shy around this group. Over the years, we had met many more members [even non-members] and Carverfest has just grown from a small brotherhood to a big ol' family..........that is there to forget about life for a while, sit back, enjoy some tunes, great company, even better conversations, stellar gear and some damn fine eatin'.

You are forgetting the point. Part of the "scenery" is getting to hear systems and gear that you would otherwise NEVER have the chance to hear, all in one location. Plus, you get to meet Bob Carver and all of the other folks you have been chatting with. The forum is definitely
a different place once you can associate a face and personality to the moniker.
