Mike, it's entirely possible that refreshments will be available. Anne has a dual room this year and I think one will be for the wild parties:) I will keep a bottle of Alaskan Amber stashed away for you and the purchaser of this meteorite will receive an entire pallet of the stuff.

You can never truly appreciate a nice big iron until you lift it with a gantry hoist!! Awesome Gibeon!!

This is a beauty! I remember 20+ or so years ago when you could easily purchase Gibeon, and you could afford what you wanted to purchase! Thanks for sharing, Paul. We'll see you in about a week... and are we served a bottle of Alaskan Amber when we stop by to see you?
