    I think my GPS has Awsome as one of the points of interest selections. I'll plug that in when I get there.

    I know, Sally, but it's either that or nothing. So something is better than nothing!! Next year, I can come a couple of days earlier. I just have to work on the first 3 weekdays of each month, so events at the first of the month don't allow for vacation time.

    That designer guy is pretty good! He also designed the gecko and chili pepper uke artwork for Mainland. And, he has a new children's book out. And he plays the saw!!!! How cool is that?!?!?

    If only we actually knew such a famous person, eh? BTW I'm glad you'll be making it up to UWC. Son, Matt and I are going for the first time and we're pretty well enthused by this time. See you there!
    I'm not in this to win anything. I just want to share songs with some friends. By the way, I thought YOURS was the best.
    Love,

    there's another map on the UWC 2011 thread that has some of the hotels, other sites etc listed if you want to have a look there.

    then there's our restaurant...can it survive without us there???!!! in our little town, it's our annual blues fest weekend...might be busy...but,...boy,...i would surely like to get away and 'really meet all of y'all..strum a little, learn some things...can i convince my cooks to cover for me? ply them with overtime and free beers...oh! the dilemma! if we don't make it, hope there is another video of how great a time it was! and, philpot...GO! philpot's mom, ah, c'mon! these are, or seem to be, really nice people that will take care of him! in a good way! hope to see y'all soon...or someday! cheers!

    Someone mentioned getting around the Brown County area our good friend DeG made an outstanding google map with all the common points of interest. Looks like the link got nerfed on the first page of this thread so here's another attempt. http://maps.google.com/maps/ms?ie=UT...66,0.2635&z=13 I still have a copy i printed out from 3 years ago in my car.

    That field is so close, yet so far away.

    Hey - hope you make it Dave - bring some of those awesome hats, man!
    I'm not entirely convinced that it is possible to polish a turd. However, if one were to accomplish that feat one would still have a turd, and one all the more noticeable for being shiny.

    Started working on the field already, just got a new bushhog that cuts wonderfully. Everything is looking good, the bonfire pile is already pretty respectable.
