1) From: Kris McN
Now wait one darn minute there, Les!  You trying to pick a fight with us
Heart of the Valley, Willamette folks?!  I may be pregnant, but I will
totally cut you.
Seriously though, there aren't many place west of the Cascades in Oregon
that I wouldn't happily call home.  You and Marjorie gonna move out this
way, Dennis? We would welcome you with open arms.  And a good cup of coffee.
We finally made it back out west after spending time in Michigan and Kansas
while I was in grad school.  I've learned that every place has it's charms,
to be sure, but I'm just not built for a Midwest climate and I finally feel
like I'm someplace I can put down roots.  Besides, now that I've been once,
I can't move too far away from PNWG!

Don't you kids make me come in there!

Too bad you didn't make it down I-5 185 miles to "The Hundred
Valleys of the Umpqua." where Alchemist John and I live.  It is much
nicer down here, and much less traffic.

Re: +Cooling (or, the newbie's surprise)
Heh.  My set up pretty much looks like both of yours, just a little
less glamorous (on a couple of old sawhorses behind the pea trellis). 
I too have Vicki to blame/thanks!  I don't have to face real cold here
in the Willamette Valley, OR, but I do have to face a LOT of rain in
the winter.  I'll probably just huddle under the eaves for the half
hour +- it takes to roast up the two .75 lbs. batches I do each week. 
Last winter I used my IR2 in the garage, but since I started using the
BrM/HG I only use the IR2 for the occasional decaf batch.
