I sure wish I could attend, but just can't this year. But I will aim for the one after - I would enjoy a trip to Oregon - have never been there before. Might take an extra couple of days off to see the area!

OK a few more things to add.

We will have dinner at Mangiare in Independence Oregon on Friday night. It is about half way between Lynn's house and mine. That will be at 445 PM so we can get all of us in there without messing up there evening service and getting us close together if not at the same table.

Our hotel is the Phoenix Inn on Commercial Blvd. in Salem. I don't have the details of when our window will open yet but will post it to this site. Next year we will use the new hotel in Independence as it's so close to Lynn and I but it won't be ready until May. The Phoenix Inn is about 5 miles from my house and is a pretty easy shot of the Kuebler Blvd. Exit.

Christie, Salem is one hour from the ocean and one hour from the mountains so it's a perfect spot to get glimpses of much of Oregon's scenic beauty. I feel lucky to live here. Even the soil is good...

Updates made. Phoenix Inn really looks nice Kevin. Can't wait to see what kind of deal you get for the group.

You will really enjoy yourself Christie. Oregon is such a beautiful state, ocean, green valleys, mountains and high desert. We have it all.

That is what I had last night. Smiling

Just checking to see if any of you have potted up some of your seedlings to bring to the Clinic?
I have several that are potted up and ready for an April visit to Kevin's garden.

Just wanted to mention, if you have a copy of Kevin's awesome book on sempervivum bring it to the clinic and he will sign it for you. Big Grin

I don't have any seedlings to bring because I just have not gotten to that point yet. I am still just collecting and coveting what other folks are developing.

At Kevin's suggestion I am going to bring along some of Lynn's "rejects" that I picked up at the clinic last year. They have done really well and I am looking forward to spring to see what more they might do.

I really like that Kevin picks a hotel that has a nice breakfast. It is so nice to not have to go out and hunt up your grub at the beginning of the day.

Just signed the contract with the hotel and I should have the code words for the special rates by Monday.

I agree that just having a nice breakfast right there is a good thing. Rooms are nice here too. I will give directions from the the highway and from the hotel to Lynn and my places too. About 10 minutes to my place and 25 to Lynn's. Next year we'll be even closer to both of us.

It is all coming together. I am really starting to get excited. Hurray!
The daylight hours are getting longer. Hurray!
No rain today or tomorrow. Hurray!
Might be getting the deck redone in the next few weeks. Hurray! Keeping fingers crossed.
