I'm really hoping to make this one. The wife has given me her blessing and offered to help with cash. Depending on cost, I may see what an RV rental would be and take her and kids for a road trip.

nothing is certain yet but I sure will advise everyone if this happens and a PM for sure. Got relations around Hamilton and Toronto but have to get in touch with Dads sisters and a cousin to find their addresses. I hadn't looked into it til now as i figured it would just be out of our reach for this trip but maybe not :thumbup:

Not sure what the plans are. pythonshine is working on helping his mom get better. I'm sure he will chime in when he has time.

pythonshine, Yak and myself had a meetup and some fishing and drinks a bit back.

I would love for this meet to happen. The input on when and ware however has been nil. If Crow is going to be in Southern Ontario, I think it would be a great time to get together! :thumbup:

Well I can't commit to that at this stage but if we get there it would be in late August, we would be entering near Detroit driving over towards Niagara to re-enter the US. My family is from the Hamilton District so it would be great to get up there and meet some rellies and a bunch of you guys but we'll see how it goes

Hi

I am in Stratford and I would be interested in meeting up as well. There is actually a new distillery here Called Junction 56 and he does do tours. He makes moonshine, vodka, gin and just started his own whiskey. It's a nice little place.

I would like this to still happen. Stratford is not that far from Yak and I. It does sound nice. What do you think Yak?

I won't be able to do a meet until after Christmas myself. Working out of town means I have very limited time. After who knows. I was even thinking of hosting one next spring at my place moving to a bigger house and yard in a few weeks.

Hey Python, I'm up for a meet, if and when. I'm in the Windsor area as well. Yak and I have been meeting for coffee whenever our crazy schedules coincide.

Have you been out to Amherstburg to check out Wolfshead at all? A couple of my beer making buddies are talking about making a pilgrimage.

Cheers, Hedge

Yeah, the world is a much smaller place these days. I was in Tennessee this morning, back in Canada now, spent a few days with Odin in Woerden in July and I'll probably reconnect with some friends in Kentucky before the summer is out. The trick I use is to preplan a little bit, stick a few phone numbers and reminders in my smartphone calendar to let me sneak in some pleasure visits in order to bust up the boring business trips :).

We closed the Victoria three nights running, the "owner" took a liking to me, and let me play with the rubber chicken.

Hey, is there still going to be a meet at all? I know I'm late to the conversation, but with me being just on the east side of Toronto, all these locales - Markham, Stratford, Guelph, Hamilton, Niagara Falls are all within a couple hours of me. Ottawa is a little further, about 4 hours, but still doable.
