sounds great lets try and get a jump on it all. maybe have few work party's out on the farm. weekend a month come summer will have the farm looking good! willing to go with what ever it takes to get fest going again.
I'll be out of town the third weekend of June, but my main concern is the kitchen.
The kitchen fireplace is avaliable for that cookout, and there is a bit of gear (which will certainly need to be cleaned) avaliable to cook with. If you guys do use the kitchen, some feedback on the condition of the space would be appreciated.
I know I will probably need to find something to build a new set of tops for the tables out of - I don't think the indoor doors I used have held up to the adverse outdoor environment very well. ;-)

Dr. Suitcase shame u can't stop by but all is good. I'm sure I can come up with what ever u need to fix things up. got some 3/4 plywood that would work great. some paint should last few years then. what ever u need just ask I'm sure I can get my hands on it.
plan is to stop up last week of April see how chuck doing try an get a game plan set up on what he feels should be done. I'll slip down to the kitchen see how things look then report back
The frames for the two tables in the kitchen should still be there, so if you feel up to cutting to shape and screwing/nailing down new table tops (either on top of the doors already there, or in place) then go for it!
I'm short vacation time this year, and I won't be able to take a half or full day off Friday, so the other huge thing that would be really helpful for someone to do, either shortly before or the week of Chuckstock, is running the water line down from the house to the kitchen sinkhole and making sure it doesn't leak. That little chore takes a couple of hours for me, and I won't have that time to spend this year.
I will also need a bunch of hard-wood firewood to run the kitchen, and while I expect I will bring some, I will need more. Other firewood for the other, recreational, fire would also be good.
I expect now that I will get out to Chucks around 5:30 or 6 pm Friday evening. I still plan on cooking Friday night - veggie and rice stir fry - as well as various and sundry meats including but not limited to bacon, sausage, and pork. I've gotta see what I can get between now and then. ;-)

Hello Chuck's Farmians!!
Yes indeed, Sept 9-11, 2011! There is A LOT to do.
Right now we urgently need:
donations of caution tape, orange cones or flags, rope, straw bales, fencing, or even glow sticks that can be tied to rope/fencing.
Wood for building projects - for stage repair, for outhouse repair, for kitchen repair, for lots of stuff!
Toilet seats for the outhouses (not sure how many)
Firewood - any kind, any time.
Please leave your contact info or get in touch w/ me here or at firstname.lastname@example.org.
"Whenever the light of civilization falls upon you with blighting power...go to the wilderness...Dull business routine, the fierce passions of the market place, the perils of envious cities become but a memory....the wilderness will take hold of you. It will give you good red blood; it will turn you from a weakling into a man...you will soon behold all with a peaceful soul." George S. Evans, 1904
