      If I can remember to pack it, I am bringing a case of beer I just brewed up.it has been aging for nearly two weeks and needs to be taken care of.
      I am naming this batch Rocky Mountain Hog Drool.
      I have low hopes for it. I rarely followed the directions when I made it.

      I've got my room reserved. Jim, you're in for the class, we'll do our best to build a Zulu slipjoint again this year. If anyone else wants to build one, post it here. I'll take three more students.

      The usual safety glasses. I'll have the necessary holes drilled and the blades and springs heat treated.
