    Yeah, Denver's way off my radar as well. To be honest, I doubt I'd even trek down to Portland...I did it for his dad and brother (with SLEEPING BEAUTIES) and even that was a bit of a stretch of interest and initiative, compounded by the subsequent unfavorable, Did-Not-Finish reaction to the book. Lesson learned: Seattle or nothing for me, I'm afaid.

    Btw, this kind of ties in the discussion on the Production Updates thread, but I sure had hoped that CD would have released their limited of EARTHQUAKE WEATHER before Hill's new book hit the stands...getting lapped by the new release is another reminder that drives home the disappointing delay of EQ.

    A link to the announcement of this appearance was retweeted by Mr. Hill. To my knowledge this is the only to be announced so far.

    My hope is for a Powell's in-store visit by Mr. Hill but I think those days are gone. The appearances at large halls, like Sleeping Beauties, are just not the same. If I remember correctly they had to close the room before Mr. Hill arrived last time due to capacity.

    I'm pretty stoked for this! Denver is definitely doable for me! I'd hate to purchase tickets and find out he'll be stopping in Wichita.

    Denver is super close to me! Plus Tattered Cover is fairly small (at least that was my impression of it when I went and saw The Oatmeal last month.)

    The site indicates they will issue refunds up to seven days before the event.

    It's about a 7.5 hours drive for me but would be well worth it. I think this is the closest he's been to my area since I started collecting him. It'd be cool to met up if you'll be attending.

    Thanks, Martin. I was looking for that info but must have overlooked it.

    I went ahead and pulled the trigger for the Denver event. Thanks again, Martin for the refund info.

    I’m about 75% sure I’m going to go. I should just say 100% because I was going to order the B&N signed version of Full Throttle, and this is technically better.

    It’s too bad my guest room is buried in boxes of books and has so sleeping apparatus, otherwise I’d offer to let you crash here since I am close to the book store. At the very least a good beer from somewhere afterwards is a must!

    If the info on the ARC '5 City tour' is accurate this will probably be the closest he gets to you. Unfortunately the drive would be a bit longer for me.

    That's an awesome offer all the same, Jason! And we'll do the beer thing for sure. My wife will be in tow as well.

    Probably the best I could have hoped for, for sure. Unless it comes out later that he'll be in the Dallas area. That's only a 6 hour drive.

    I have had the good fortune of seeing Mr. Hill on three of his book tours (Horns, NOS4A2 and The Fireman) and I can guarantee you will have a blast!

    His events always sound like a great time for sure!

    Tickets purchased! I "convinced" my wife to come along too, even though she was slightly scared the first and only time we saw JH on the NOS4A2 tour (Seattle . . .) Plus it's the day after our first anniversary, so I'm thinking first anniversary present complete! I mean, the traditional gift is paper, right?

    Cool beans, man! Looking forward to meeting you guys if he doesn't make a stop at a closer venue. She'll get lots of paper as the book is included . You should have Joe inscribe it to her as such.

    I don't "want" you to drive 8 hours, but it would be great to meet you and your wife! So here's to hoping Denver is as close as he gets.

    It's funny that you mention the inscription - a buddy of mine (that I met through TDT of all places - lived across the Narrows from me) is going to get Katie's book since Katie doesn't have an interest in keeping it. I already told him that I hope he's okay with his signed Full Throttle being inscribed "Katie - happy first anniversary! Joe Hill!" He "says" he's good with it, but we'll see . . .

    That'd be hilarious! If we do the Denver thing, we'll probably drive in the day of the event and stay overnight. No vacation days left for the rest of the year so I'll have to try and minimize the impact on the old paycheck. I'm already filling sick the first part of October

    I hope it's nothing serious that the clean mountain air can't help with.

    Here's to hoping you make it out - there are lots of good breweries around that will take good care of us.
