Beautiful work Kevin, as usual.  The written narration was really informative.

Videos are available on You Tube...

Joe, that would be wonderful.  But we cannot predict at this point what our world will be like in the coming months.

Just keep your optimistic thoughts coming and stay safe in your own community.

Maine CDC is recommending no groups larger than 10 of high risk individuals.  That includes many of us.  The officers are reviewing again tomorrow.

Details don't matter.  WW&F contributors should feel a need to help support the FEBT.  However, their website is very confusing and does not have an easy pathway to join.  If anyone can help smooth that out, it would be helpful.

Actually, Jeff, it's the cold and snow that makes it so special!  Mainers relish these conditions.

Maybe Steve P has some ideas about promoting these events sooner than later.

Steve can help with this.  Why can't they be promoted (at least) including reservation directions more specifically on the Forum.  Not everyone reads this regularly, but it would be a start (starting now)


Sea Lyon shed is large and could serve a variety of purposes.  Storage and support of saw/shingle mills could be one, but perhaps a more important use is also partly as a visitor center and shelter for future TOM events.

Prebles at TOM gives us a base as a permanent "Destination" for TOM, similar to what Alna Center has become over the years.  It's historically accurate which is a huge plus.  Should we consider it as such, it also anchors the growing importance of TOM as a center for more WW&F activities (consider the sawmill, the shingle maker, the Sea Lyons connection, a possible new freight shed, etc., etc.)  This can become the center of our activities at TOM, just as the station at Alna Center had become over the last many years.

Wow, Prebles is finally where it belongs at TOM.  We'll find many good uses for it moving forward....

BTW. the entire printing of the new book is now in the second floor above the machine shop.  It took some fork lift and heavy heaving gymnastics as they weighed close to 1500 pounds.

The real question is what will it take ($$) to complete the pavilion, period.  Time frame is irrelevant.  Once we know that, we can work on making it happen.

Eric, I hope your cosmetics can be saved and used again whenever we might want to backdate #9 again.

As for the weather, someone beyond us was looking down and giving us the best possible weather all three days.  The Saturday snowstorm was providential, and gave us a unique insight into what must have been their winter challenges those many years ago.  And it makes for unforgettable photos.
