I'll see you there, Syrumani. I'm a member of East Texas Piney Woods in Longview, to which patch do you belong?

I don't! I have not been able to find anything in less than an hours drive, and with gas prices nowadays . . . Looking forward to seeing you!

Hmmm... is there a website? I'd certainly consider it; that's right before my birthday and I'd LOVE to give myself something gourdish.

brigidlily - here's the link for the website: http://www.texasgourdsociety.org/

That would be a bit of a drive for you, wouldn't it? I'd love the chance to meet you, though!

Syrumani, it's probably a six hour drive or so. I've made it before. I'll have to give it some serious thought, though!

What are the chances of you coming over, Jo? I know it's about a 12 hour drive . . . I'd really like to start meeting other DGers!
