The University of Chicago has a celiac research facility, and they claim that they may have a cure in the next 10-15 years.

    We can take more nominations for the charity and then hold some sort of vote.

    Is it too early to start getting excited for the winter hang?
    I'll go with the Celiac research. My mom has it and it's a rough ride for anyone.

    ===> I will third Celiac Research! I love that the NEHHA members are willing to help various charities; help others the way we all help Newbs and each other!

    This is a very active, and special group of people!

    ===> I would be careful bringing any wood into the state. There is a ban on outside wood in all state forests, parks, and National Forests, due to two invasive species- the Emerald Ash Borer, and WORSE, the Asian Longhorn Beetle! They had to cut down over 30,000 trees in Worcester MA - right in people's yards, no less- because the Asian Longhorn was discovered in the city!

    We really don't want to destroy the very woods we cherish. It is a very real threat. The New England lumber industry is quaking in their boots right now, due to the threat posed by these two insects!

    Just sayin'. Hate to have you get stopped at the border for this. It's a real risk!

    Sky brings up a good point. I will confer with Nighthauk and come up with a plan for the wood.

    Do you think Nighthauk's dad would miss another half a cord of wood ? We must have burned close to that last year.

    So, I knew bringing wood up might be a problem. The only stuff I would be bringing would be Oak or Locust and neither of those are really susceptible to the Emerald Ash Borer or the Asian Longhorn. But, Sky it would suck to be turned away at the gate with a bunch of wood from VA. A half a cord is probably all I could bring up. I have a small truck and that Oak is heavy! So I'll let you all decide what would be best. I could put it in giant trash bags and keep it in those untill we burn it... VA doesn't really have any Emerald Ash Borers but there are a few spots were Asian Longhorns have been found.

    Definitely down with donating to Celiac Research. Great and worthy
    cause!

    Also, just wanted to say for the first time winter hangers, we rigged sleeping bags as uqs and were just toasty with a nalgene bottle full of hot water. Really. Like old soldier mentioned i would think more about your feet. Lesson learned at the last winter hang. Also, we literally brought everything but the kitchen sink with us (its car camping!) Just in case. Dont let fear of being cold keep you home. You'll be ok. I had my doubts last year and can honestly say it was one of the most fun weekends of my life. Coffee's bottomless at this hang!
