Post by Frank_Cox » April 21st, 2017, 3:25 pm

Here's some pics fellers!
First off, beautiful place! Everywhere you look is another cabin. Tons of room!
Very isolated, very quiet in the back of the park.
Asphalt roads for the kids to ride bikes on and 2 really nice playgrounds.
Huge commercial style kitchen and an indoor air conditioned dining room.
Private shower house.

:beer: Wow the food and surroundings are awesome. That is one serious rig you have there. And the Hog Coffin looks great.

Enjoy the food and camaraderie ... from someone who lives way too far away from such awesomeness.

:points: for organising such a great event.

ImageImageImage. It's just about chow time! I'm not sure what they injected and rubbed with but it was a 70 lb pig and they cooked it 8.5 hours at 250-300 degrees.

It was a great time, and always getting to meet knew people and put faces to names I have known for years. (BigT) I hope that everyone will be able to make it to HQ in the fall for the second 2017 bi-annual gathering.


Making memories!
