Can someone confirm that this is the correct "Nauman's Farm" (seems like the top hit in Google anyway, and it's in the right area... :):
As I understand the plan, at least Richard, Ben, and myself + probably some additional people (I tried counting up who said they would come out, but got confused in all the various emails) will be going to Nauman's for 9am Saturday.
Since we'll have at least 2 truck-type vehicles, we have both redundancy (in case of the truck-like vehicles and/or vehicle operators don't make it), and enough people to load the trucks, so sounds like that part is all nicely on track.

Since the bed is a lot longer than it is wide, 5x8 pumpkins average per layer might be more like it)

We'll need to get the address to Richard, and a bunch of us will still need to meet there to help with filling said truck with pumpkins. I'll volunteer to meet Richard at Nauman's along with whomever else can make it.
