So, I awoke OK from surgery yesterday only to find the stitches covered in collodion!  Somehow seems appropriate.  :)

I had an umbilical hernia repair and am now looking forward to cavorting with the belly dancers at Eddie's gig in a couple weeks.  Things went well and I should be mended sufficiently to make the party.  I'm looking forward to meeting everyone.

it is getting closer fast!

i ordered the beer!  see my priorities?  :)

i am looking into a tent (for SUN shade!  remember positive weather thoughts).  i will be talking with my "chef" on some food.

several "models" will be there.  a couple are "real" models and the others are regular folks that are willing to sit for us.  should be great.  lets remember to get a print or something to the sitters for their time.

looking forward to seeing everyone.

eddie

edit:

here are some ideas fro hotel/motels in the area. you probably want to stay in New Paltz or Kingston:

Holiday Inn. kingston 845 338 0400

Sky Top Motel kingston 845 331 2900 this is on top of a "mountain" over looking kinston.

Super 8 in Kingston 845 338 3078

Super 8 in New Paltz 845 255 8865

oh! and for the big spenders that want all the comfort plus check out the Mohonk Mountain House in new paltz. AWESOME (and you pay for it) 845 255 1000

these hotels are about 10 min drive from my place.

there is a quaint little motel in high falls as well....about 4 miles from me.

Artcraft now has Ethyl Ether again. The Good stuff!! I'll be Eddie's on the 1st. Anybody want something let me know, free shipping, better quality and lower pricing. Just give me a call at 800-682-1730 and I can bring it down. Silver Nitrate, Collodion, Ether, Ferrous, bromides, Iodides and I will also be bringing some chems for a Chinese Auction to offset some of Ed's costs.
Thanks,
Mike Jacobson

Boy, that Mohonk Mountain House surely is attractive!  For $160, it is probably worth staying.  Judging from its view, you can probably do a few plates too.  It is 265 miles from my place.  I missed your last gathering.  Still has the jasmine tea.  I plan to shoot all my way to mohonk on Friday, may have to sleep in my car in the parking lot  and then use my nose on Saturday to go to your barbecue stand:)

great.  please do.  you may have trouble sleeping in your car at mohonk....lots of climbers in the area so they are ion the look out.   if you need come to my place on friday.  plenty of forest or floor space!  maybe we will tap the keg on friday night!

if it is only 160 stay there it is one of the most beautiful places around.  they include food as well.

hello again,

i have invited my friends Dan Burkholder and his wife Jill Burkholder.  i am sorry to say Dan will be away on May 1st but i am happy to say Jill will be attending.  these two are an authority on digital negs and alt process printing.  you all should see there darkroom/computer room.  simply marvelous.  

i have encouraged Jill to bring a few prints.  this would be a great opportunity to "pick her brain".  she has such wonderful images and is full of knowledge.

the day is shaping up nicely.  see you all there.

Can't believe a year ago I actually had a house in Olivebridge.  My timing is always a little off!  (But stone house day was fun......)  You'll just have to carry on without me.

hey all,

1st let me remind everyone to BRING a few prints so others can see what you are doing.

just an update and an informal idea on a schedule.

i will do a wet plate demo at about 11am.  the wet plate set up will be available for people to play with all day but i will go over it and answer question then.

it is World Wet Plate Day as well, so at about 3:30pm or so i would like to have a  group photo of everyone to submit to the WWPD book that is made.  should be a great one.

there will be tables set up so people can buy, sell, and swap what they wish.  no set time.

BBQ food will be available all day and into the night.  when you are hungry get some food or fire up the grill and cook some.  grill master wanted!

i plan to have several raffles/chinese auctions throughout the day so late comers will get in on it as well.  lets say one at 1pm, 4pm, and around 7pm.

almost there.
