I was thinking... dangerous, I know.

If anyone's interested, BBQ Gurus are right next to my shop. If you all want we could make a little trip to see their facility. I'd have to check if they're even around on Saturday so let me know if you're interested.

Rodcrafter wrote:Hey just so everyone can start planning we need to nail down the dates. It looks like Friday the 8th of April we will begin the Northeast Gathering 2016. The park is asking how many cabins do we want. So far we only need 1, if you guys are coming we need to get a head count. If you already said you're coming you don't need to repeat it. We just want to make sure everyone is considered.

So, how many of us are going to be there? I ask because I have an alternate idea. I'm going to give the campground a call and ask if there are any reservations.

I'll be there in spirit, but Google estimates 4,252 miles and 72 hours driving one way.

Spirit ribs are kind of disappointing though.

Wish I could attend but with the insane work outlook and two in college I'll have to miss it this time, I would love to meet this bunch in person, I bet it's going to be a blast.

Post by forty_creek » February 18th, 2016, 12:45 am

Frank- I can't swing it. Got one about to turn 5 months and a 2.5 yr old. I'm gonna be out of town several weeks between now and the gathering. Momma works to as an assist principal so we both have early AM's.
All that said I do hope to make one soon it's just gonna have to fit this family schedule along with work...
Hate I can't make this one. Prolly my best chance of meeting Puff, Pete and others in the Great NE.
I might just fire up the pit and pretend I'm there. LOL

Hey guys, if anyone wants anything like OJ or milk or other non-bbq related products, let me know what to pick up. I have coffee (full strength) and water (that's about all I drink besides beer) so if you want anything else or if you have a preference for beer LMK. Did I mention beer???

It's going to be in the 60's/70's next week so I'm working on the deck in preparation for the upcoming season. I'm so tired of winter....

Boy Pete, you must hav some reserve energy. My deck needs staining ....I hope it rains this week... The greener it gets, saves me from staining it algae color.....

When you have an idea of what you need to get let me know, I'll send you a few.


Make no mistake, there ain't no powder in this Puff ! And... I'm not really a crazy person but I play one in real life

That's why I'm asking..... but nobody has said yet, besides the initial list. I know DC will need Depends and Desinex but he might be able to bring enough in the truck. :bigfoot:
