Sooooo..... i just got my plane ticket earlier today, which means i will for sure be hanging out at Wintergrass! The Rayco boys will be there, so thats where i will be spending most of my time. The lineup is absolutely incredible. Stringdusters, and the Wilders seem to be the only bands (that i know of) representing the Reso world, but rest assured there will be plenty of slidey action at the Rayco booth. When i was there in '07 it was a most incredible weekend resophonically speaking. Im sure that '10 will not disappoint.

Oh and Rayco should have #200 up there, for those who really want to know what has me so excited that i could probably pee my pants at any moment.

here is the link note the first image that pops up.....
