Yes, this is exactly the point that should have been raised first. We are
spread far and wide it seems. Kevin Stumf is about the closest to me as far
as the folks on this list whom I know their hometowns. He's over in
Kitchener, ON and that's about 3 hours drive. Another fellow on the list
(who's a relatively infrequent poster here and forgot his name [sorry!!])
lives east of here in Ithaca and that's about 3.5 hours away. Pittsburgh is
3 hours too. There're several close together around Boston region though.
Everybody else of us Easterners are farther yet from me so it truly is more
difficult to keep personal contact unlike some of you Westerners who seem
to be pocketed in SoCal, NoCal, OR, WA. This is a big continent for sure.

We can just visit by "computer" I guess.
