    I've got a airplane ticket I need to use by mid August. I'm limited to the states. I'm looking for a great place to go for a couple days Is there any beekeeping related places that would be a great place to spend a couple days?

    To bad you can't wait until next year and go see the bees on the almond groves. I am thinking of taking a vacation next year and driving over and seeing it for myself.

    The meeting is in Pinehurst. Well known for golf at the Pinehurst country club.


    I will be there and will furnish transportation and show you the area. Not only bees, but I live in Richard Petty's home town. His museum is quite an attraction. The NC zoo is here in the neighborhood. The pottery capital of the world is here. ""Seagrove, NC""

    Along with a few other things. PM me if you want my phone number.

    Daniel, the almond groves would be an awesome site to see!
    Iddee, Boy, that is a very generous offer! unfortunately, I have to work a shutdown.
    I've been stumped since April trying to think of a place and getting it to work with my summer work schedule. Thanks everyone!
