That sounds like 2 of us ;-)....about another 14 will be just about enough to guarantee enough hands on with Dan to fry our brains (some of us are suckers for punishment....).
Its certainly a nice thought to take home for christmas.
If you and Walter want a chance at having Dan near you you need to take charge and make it happen....find a place, collect the people and let Dan know that you would like to have him come by. Depending on his schedule it could happen sooner or later.....just talking about it won't get it done. It is what I had to do to get him out here the first time......
