Don't worry, i'll probably be the first one to leave along with Berserkben.

My bro and I can party hard, but if I have my 1 year old with me and my pregnant wife, well, i'll only be staying a few hours.

Still more then enough time to destroy some people at bean-hole and down some beers and good food.

BTW, Starfalcon is buying my 24" CRT, so make sure his car makes it home.

I will not be hanging out Friday night. Sorry, we have friends just north of there we are having dinner with on Friday. We haven't seen them in a few years so both my wife and I are looking forward to it. I'm stopping long enough to drop off the food.

On that note:

HOLY BBQ SAUCE BATMAN!!!!

Who's crazy idea was it to bring a **** of ribs?

Image
Unpacked and trimmed down awaiting seasoning.

Image
For a little scale, yes that is 15, count them 15 slabs. :o


Image
Seasoned and bagged to flavor over night. Still don't think it is a lot? Look that the bend in the refrigerator shelf! :o

I must be crazy.

I am definitely amped up for this. We've gotten enough stuff done on the house for now that a break will be good. (Oh yeah, the wife and I bought a house about a month ago. It's been a crazy month, so if I've forgotten to mention that, my apologies).

Anyway, we'll be around for as long as we need to. We're hanging out with her folks the next day, so we can late-night it on the beach as long as we choose to.

Ribs FTW!

And that is no small cooler either.

Got your PM... I'll let you know if anything needs to be done that I can't handle... BTW, you asked about doing something tomorrow night... Since Gleek and his crew will be here too maybe we could do something... Gleek will actually be sleeping on the beach Friday night, and I'll be at the cottage then as well, we could start the party early if you want... 8) z-man will be there dropping off food to stash in the fridge so there will be a decent crowd... I'm going to have a long day at work tomorrow but if nothing else we could just hang at the cottage... Thoughts? I'll post in Gleek's forum about the idea...


Sounds fun. I will post on TG, too, although at this hour it may be too late.

Weather today is fabulous!! Sunny, cloud free since about 11 or noon. The temp is around 80-85 and the water temperature at the lake is just right. One of the things that used to be a blast was "pier surfing..." I can see that happening if the TR crew gets rowdy. Too bad there aren't bigger swells on the lake today.
I have nothing more to say about that.

Two six packs of Abita Purple Haze and sundy bags of chips in the trunk, ready to go. This is going to be great.

Probably arguing about megapixels, ISO speed, and aperture settings... You know, important stuff. Way too busy to take pictures... :D

All right, for real, post pics!

Okay, so here's a BBQ update.

First, no pics up yet because we had no internets at the site (I'm at the hotel now). Second, Lake Michigan (at least the side of it we found ourselves on) rocks for this kind of thing. We had a good crew turn out and a good time was had by all.

I'm tired now, so maybe there'll be more info later. Xyler and a few others took pics, so those should be up soon.

Oh yeah, and I beat z-man to win the Beanbag Toss Championship this year. He did take me two out of three following that win, though, so he rocks the house (along with his ribs).

And finally, Dr. Fish gets all the credit in the world for hosting. Everyone was well-behaved, so no problems there, but he did a crap-ton of work to get it ready. My hat is off to him.

More to follow later.

Ok we warned you there was no internet there whatsoever. And we did try. I am not back to my hotel.

Unfortunetly I didn't take as many pics as I wanted to, the sheer volume of cooking I did distracted me. However here is what I have.

Image
It is pre-dawn and those ribs fill the pig roaster that DrFish so kindly rented.

Image
Seriously that as a lot of ribs.

Image
Coming along nicely.

Image
Looking good.

That is all I got, but I know others got more.

BTW - where were the chumps who said they were coming and did not show. You know who you are.

Heh, I guess my wife and I didn't rate a mention in the group pic. I'm behind Mrs. gleek, and my wife is rather hidden behind her. Bad angle I guess.
