OK the idea came up and I think it would be a really cool thing if we could pull it off so figured I would see what everyone else thought. Pick a time for this coming spring/summer and have a get together for all the Monkeys to come out to my place for a weekend or so this coming year (2006) and have a get together, meet and greet, whatever you would want to call it. I have about 13 acres and at least 3 or 4 of that is cleared and could be used to set up tents or whatever. we could come up with a pig or even a few smaller ones and, after the butchering lesson , have a pig roast. We could all just hang out for a couple days and swap stories, show off toys, maybe take a field trip to the range, let everyone see first hand the nifty new toy you all are sending me and just have a chance for everyone to get together and put faces to the names of the folks we talk to every day on here. I figure since we have folks spread all across the US as well as a few beyond that my place might even be a pretty ideal location since it would be pretty well centrally located (western Missouri just a hundred miles or so from Kansas city). So what do you all think? Sound like something that we would be interested in making happen? When would be a good time to set it for and so on?
