Re: [DML] Re: Contemplating a Carb Swap



I believe Julie mentioned that DMCMW will be having an open house
sometime next year.  From what I understand, it is the true type of
open house where they don't charge money for their customers to visit.
 I plan to attend as long as DMCH doesn't blacklist me for my
fiberglass binnacle project.  DMCMW is only a 15.5 hour drive from my
house.
