I hope you good folks don't mind a couple of newbies. My neighbor and good friend started our first hives in March of last year. We were both able harvest honey in the summer and thought we had this bee thing figured out, (sarcasm). My hive seems to be doing well but my friend lost his. Anyway, we are only about a 2 1/2 hour drive away and I would really like to come. We hope to see you there! Thanks, David.
