From looking at the poll, it seems that the majority wants to eat all dinners.  I assume that will be Friday night and Saturday night?

That doesn't keep people from eating together other meals if they want.

I plan on Frying a turkey, will probably do that for Saturday, and I will make a big pan of baked beans Friday night.  I'll make a big pot of Pinto beans for Saturday also.

I know I have heard others say Frogmore Stew and other things...just wanted to make sure that we didn't have everyone bringing the same things.

We still need paper goods and I know some have said they would bring those.

I'm not starting a diet till I get back on MONDAY! lol ;)

Ride safe,

Checking past postings, Qball mentioned corned beef, cabbage and carrots for Friday night and beans and greens for Saturday.  Bill Gunter mentioned chili and cornbread for Saturday as well.  We will be traveling on our rig, so very little room, but will add to the feast. maybe some fresh rolls or bread, and also help with prep and clean up.

As long as my daughter holds the ole grandson in I'll be making a low country boil either Friday or Saturday for dinner(depending on when it would be put to most use).  I also plan on making some flapjacks and bacon in the mornings and will bring enough to make a bunch.
Mike-did the reservations go good....is it still going to be at site #4 at Vista Point?

I'm checking how everything packs on the rig, but I'm planning to bring a case of Russian (Baltika) and Ukrainian (Oblomov?) beer.  I'll be happy to chip in and/or do prep/clean up work.

John,   He couldn't get Site 4 and 5 was a swamp, so it's moved to Parker's Creek, Group site 253.  Closer to the showers, too.

We are still on schedule to arrive Friday afternoon.  My local shop ran out of corned beef.  I may have to resort to a batch of shredded pork loin, slow cooked.  in a white wine and apple sauce broth, with some garlis (just because) over a bed of rice.  Sorry Corned beef fans.  I do have 3 lbs of dried beans I plan on soaking overnight and simmering Saturday.  I will season them with spices, slat pork and a large onion.  I also want to steam a batch of greens as a side.

Hey John,

This is Bobby...not Mike :thumbsup!:  I see your question has already been answered!  I called on the morning before I went to make the reservations and there was still sites left at Vista Point.  I rode by the campsites on the way to see which one would be the best, by the time I got to the ranger station the only one left was #5, and it was right on a swampy area.  The girl told me it was under water last week so I didn't think it would be a good choice.

She told me she still had sites left at Parkers Point, so I got one there.  It's got 3 BBQ grills, 5 picnic tables, and a huge fire pit.  I think we'll be alright.  I hope the weather holds out Saturday!

The weather forecast has changed somewhat from this morning...now one says no rain for Saturday and one says temps in the 80's!  Should be pretty nice. :party:

Ken,

Unless your "Fry Daddy" is gas powered, you'll need an XTRA long drop cord!  There's no power on the site...maybe at the bath house.

I'll have a propane camp stove, 2 burner, and a free standing burner like you fry a turkey in.  I have a second freestanding burner that I could bring if anybody thinks we'll need it, it would need a second gas tank though.  I am bringing a cast iron skillet and 2 pots to use over the freestanding burner.

Also, for those of us that are coffee drinkers, we'll need a couple of coffee pots that can be brewed over fire...no electricity!  I'm going to WallyWorld today and see what they have.  Hopefully they'll have one that's not too expensive.  I'll pick up a can of coffee too.

Durham is not too far, so if we need any supplies, ie. BEER,  :rolleyes: Someone could make a run to the store.

Ride safe,

I will have enough coffee for 3 or 4 pots each morning.  I typically get sugar and creamers on route at the gas stops :)  NO cups so bring yer own cup.

Bill Gunter here:  Should be there by Friday at noon.  Bobby I will call you.  I am indeed bringing a pot of chili and corn bread.   Will also have coffee, trash bags and other stuff. I will also bring the "Captain Morgan" for late nights around the fire.  Bobby I also loaded that four man tent for you and the family.  I have my own two man so we should be good to hook.  Figure I can be there by around 113--1200 and help set up.
Is there a grocery store near by?  Figure we will need to make a run for thing forgotten.

Bill
