    Gary K Whats this Oud About?


    I would vote for Oct. purely because later in year generally equals cooler temperatures/less humidity. But, I could do either. Also staying another day sounds great- it would be a shame to fly in and not see some of the town or a museum or two

    Small world!

    hopefully you can make it in for the event - and you should drop me a line when you’re back in town. If you make it back up to Alpharetta - gimme a jingle and we can get ya over here for some more one-on-one.

    Open invitation to anyone that’s every in the area :)

    haha - glad to hear you’re loving Ghaliyah al Molouk! Reminds me that I really need to make another batch! Seems folks really liked that oil, and with good reason ;)

    would be great if you can make it!

    I agree with you. I’m leaning more towards the first weekend in October, Oct 2-4th.

    I asked my brother if he could maybe make himself available to help out - and he also requested October.

    So how’s Friday - Sunday, October 2-4 looking for everyone?

    So cool! Where from? Is that Heartwood? Looks like the whole dang branch! Did they leave on the bark - was that infected too? Surface looks nice!

    From the Pahang jungle. The first photo of the 3 pieces are old bead grade deadwood found and brought out of the forest 10 years ago.

    The 2nd photo is a big bead grade Tigerwood piece from a live tree - pulled out 6-7 years ago.

    Both logs are heartwood

    Wow. Flights look cheap. 60 bucks round trip to ATL from Philly. Not bad at all. Who would have thought - flights cheaper than a bottle of oud.... ;)

    Whoop!!

    I guess this means I need to start contacting some of the hotels around and work on a deal.

    Anyone that'll be looking into Airbnb or some such?
