Well.... It's coming in a hurry! Just a week from Saturday now! I've been unable to find a list of vendors though. Show organizer Sam Barnett usually posts them over on ASP but hasn't done so yet for some reason. With the economy in the shape that it's in it makes me wonder just how many vendors/buyers are gonna show up! Some might ask, are folks still blowing several hundred dollars a wack on smoking pipes when we're in the biggest financial tailspin since 1989? Yes! They sure are! E-Bay prices on all pipes have gone up signifigantly this year. Smokingpipes.com and Marty Pulvers sites both seem to be doing very good business. Two pipes that I was eyeing on smokingpipes dissapeared within a half hour of their posting (and they weren't cheap neither) The lagging economy just hasn't really affected the pipe collector's world yet....

Does anyone have experience taking public transport from Manhattan to the location? Are there buses? When I hear "new jersey" I'm thinking probably not.

Niceguy, it's actually very easily accessed from the NJ Transit commuter rail station's Newark Airport stop. Depart from NY Penn Station. You walk across a large parking lot between the two, and there you are. It's hard to explain in words, but Google maps will show you how close the hotel is to the stop. (Newark Airport is also an Amtrak stop, but at a higher price.)

May I add that a hotel shuttle did run to the Newark Airport site if that helps, at least it did when the hotel was still Ramada now changed to Wyndham, it's worth a call to the hotel to find out for free transportation.

A nice turnout from the Brotherhood at the show. It was a distinct pleasure to meet some of our Southern contingent (EJ & JP), as well as two other Doc[k]s (Perry & Watson).

Left a little lighter in the wallet--in some part because I managed to screw up my return train ticket--but nonetheless richer for the experience.
