Really?  How nice.  What works best, lures or live bait?

I would like to come down from Charlotte. But I have only my old Suburban. So it is a very expensive trip. Could I catch a ride? Or offer as many as 8 rides and get some gas help? I suppose I could come down either 77 or 151 or 95 thru SC.

Wally could you make it to Clt?

Matt, I have room for you. Can you get to Beez Needz? If not, we can make other arrangements.

I think that might work. Tho I thought you didn't make plans so far in advance. :) Maybe there are a few more NC-SC folks want to carpool? MikeyNC ?

I normally don't, but a few PM's and I had to commit "tentatively"  if my health holds. I wouldn't want to get too many involved, as I am able to travel like that about 50% of the time. My health is closing me in a little more each month.

I don't mind doing the driving. The Suburban is comfortable, only she has a drinking problem, so it's best if there are more people chipping in. :)

I have an Isuzu Rodeo. I will be buying the gas. All you need is half the motel and your food eaten off the farm. Maybe all the motel if Keith or Rob goes with me, and not the other.If only one of them goes, I will have to split the room with him. If both or neither go, we can split the room.

Sharon,
You just did register by saying you are coming on this thread.
This will help me estimate how many people are coming and also how many people are camping here at the farm.

@Jim,

How kid-friendly is Beefest and your farm?

Jim,

I planning on making the festivities.  I currently have one other beekeeper coming along and found out yesterday there might be a third.

@Jim, a registration update an a couple more general questions:

I have three kiddos coming along, they're fully equipped and bee trained and well behaved. We would like to tent it if that is still ok.

What kind of fish are in your pond?

Should we plan to eat independently or chip in for a common meal there or eat "off campus" somewhere?

Any nuc swapping or other "trading circle" activity going on?

Matt,
Bring your children by all means. All I ask is that the parents be responsible for them. We have a zip line, a swing, lots of friendly animals including 3 baby cows and 42 acres to roam.
We will be group cooking/eating. Please bring food to share.
 I will be providing short ribs for one meal. We will probably eat at a local restaurant for at least one dinner meal and maybe a lunch or 2 if we are out doing a removal. I just receive a call for a open air hive removal in Jacksonville that I plan on checking out, when I get back home, for us to do during Beefest.
There are shellcrackers, sunny's bass and one 2 foot catfish in the pond. I plan on having a bass/shellcracker meal as long as we have at least one good fisherman.  :cheesy:

If you have anything to swap, bring it. I could see if ny local bee suppliers are interested in bringing their wares if any one would like to see and buy equipment and bees.

Matt,
I forgot to add, you can use a tent, camper, travel trailer or RV. I do have one tent ⛺️ that someone can use. We also have 3 motels that are 30 minutes away.

I received a text while I was still in PA that the open air hive removal turned out to be a MBH.


A Mobile Bee Hive. In other words it was a swarm. I wish it really was an open air hive. Maybe we will get lucky and I will get a call for a real open air hive.
