The rpm tour thread is heating up and deposits are being collected.

For those that earlier expressed interest, time to visit and confirm your interest, and make a deposit if you're planning on attending.
If you'll be unable to attend, let us know so others on the wait list can make their plans.

For those that were #47 or higher, we've had some drops and it's also time for you to check in and check your PM's.

The list should be opening up Tuesday, check in!

Hope to see you there.

Time, unfortunately, isn't our friend. Expect the list to be frozen mid week, absolutely by Friday.

Those that were above the cutoff we've not heard from to reconfirm and arrange for a deposit date have been moved below the cutoff number of 42.

It is now first deposit received and you fill the empty numbers.
It is with regret I've been asked to do this, but confirmed numbers are needed to progress with tour planning.

For those who have and use smokers, is this from T&G a POS or something worth considering?

Seems like a proper smoker would have someplace for you to put wood chips/chunks in. Looks just to be charcoal only.

Dunno, I'm too lazy for charcoal. Set time, set temp, let it heat for 30 minutes, add chips hourly for three hours.

That's my speed.

What's up with the disembodied head at the top of the page? It's freaking me out and I may have to boycott until such time that said head is gone.

It's out here now! Major storm rolled through at church during our choir party. Nothing at home. Temp at school this PM was up to 89 degrees with 79 % humidity & no AC. Brutal!

I'm just curious what sorts of lists you are on. On second thought, don't tell me.

Also, are you confirmed for Denver yet?

D-dog's getting up there ... I think he meant John Denver's Leaving on a Jet Plane.

Of course, he could have meant Tyler's version of Sparky Claus is Coming to Town.
