Arrived at Don's Barn

After 18.5 hours of driving, Freddy Roman and I arrived in Monterey, VA at Don Williams' place. The moment we got out of the car we heard the dinner bell ring and the congregants gather. It truly was a wonderful thing to be able to again see the faces I've grown close to through the Professional  Refinisher's Group.

Don has again generously agreed to host the Group's week long conference. Though I was only running on a few hours of sleep, I could not resist staying up late with the guys discussing the finer points of the drying characteristics of coalescing waterborne finishes, small business marketing, and philosophy of restoration. I hit my pillow hard.

I am off to breakfast now. Gotta get some food down before the first lecture. This is gonna be good.


  1. That's awesome that you were able to get down for this. Don is a fountain of knowledge and about the nicest guy you'll ever meet. He's been really good to me and I'm proud to call him my friend. And I can imagine the Barn is just fantastic. Enjoy!!!

  2. Jamie,

    It has been an incredible week again this time. Freddy and I head out today. I will certainly be blogging about this when I get back.
