    I'll be driving a 6-cyl grand am GT. The trip is 400 miles each way. I think it will take just over 1 tank of gas each way. It takes roughly $20 to fill it up. The $20 each way is a very rough estimate. I already have one person that has offered to donate $20. I'll let that person come forward publicly if he wants.
    I'm waiting to hear from Tamlin before I make any more plans since the choice is his.
    Tamlin it may be a good idea to wait until you get your light so I can wire it up for you too.

    I'll donate gas money. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img] I told William that you might be able to help him. VERY nice of you to offer to do that. That's quite a haul for you.

    If you can talk him into it, I'm in for the gas money...maybe even meal money too. [Peeled grapes...] [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/wink.gif[/img]

    Well, OH MY GOSH......I just don't know how to respond to such kindness and wonderful support! You are all amazing folk, and it is my greatest pleasure to be among you!

    Ozzy, as it stands, buddy George has offered to help me wire the new circuts. He often has to do AC wiring for power distribution during his sound jobs, and he has 125 feet of the needed wire. He has assured me it is no difficult process.

    However, as soon as I get some cash in hand I am going to send you the gas money myself. Then you can come and get a box or two of plants and we can have a good visit.

    As for the CP party at my place, why the door is wide open, and for sure everyone is invited! My phone number is 315-342-4139 if anyone is passing by, please call and I will be honored to host you and weight you down with some plants.

    Ozzy, when you get a chance, please send me an email and tell me what's going on with you! Maybe I can help somehow.

    To all the rest of you, know I love you all very much, and thank you for all the offers to help. I may not have a dollar to my name, but I am certainly a very rich man!

    It's been a real exciting day: my ballast has been returned and repaired. The Phytocytorium (hee hee) is now fully operational. Plants everywhere(!!!): I can even use the floor space. Literally every square inch of the room is now lit to some degree. With these HID lights I can grow flower pots from bricks! Add this to the all new flourescent lights and you can imagine what the plants are thinking, LOL!

    In the 2 weeks that I have had the lights there is an amazing upswing in color, vigor and general growth. Some of the colors in the pygmys are just outstanding!!! All the Mexican Pings have burst into flower, as has Drosera montana var tomentosa! Yes!

    This year I will let the S. leucophylla grow until December since it just made its first true pitcher a week ago, and I plan on ejoying it and the 2 forming now as long as I can!

    The room hosts my succulent collection, orchids, bonsai and tropicals in addition to the CP, and everything will be optimal as soon as I can het the needed humidifier. It is a beautiful room, and although very crowded everything is reachable. It even has a rug on the floor I still have to shuffle some bins around to get to things, but all in all it is a good functional unit for the 1500.00 or so I have invested into it (thanks for the loans and help). A GH would give more room, but not necessarily better results.

    Now the problem is I have a LOT of space (relatively), so the fever is on me. I have been writing lots of letters lately, seeking new material to bring into circulation, especially Utricularia and Drosera. Its a bad time of year though: near winter in some places, but strangely enough, not here!

    Like the plants themselves, the lights have renewed and refreshed my passion for these plants. Like a bubble of tropical paradise the room will get me through the long winter ahead.

    So, thanks to all for the encouragement and support. Look for good things from me in the near future!

    YAY!! I'm so glad to hear the ballast has finally came in and is fully repaired. It's great that all that room is finally in use. I wish you much luck on getting those "much needed plants" to fill the room. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html312/non-cgi/emoticons/biggrin.gif[/img]
