Not going to make it. Cancelled my res at Clarks today. Daughter just engaged so its meet prospective inlaws time. You'll probably understand that my calendar was not taken into consideration.

Looking forward to meeting you'all next year.

Well, all of us that can make it will hoist one for those who can't :wink: I'll smoke a pork butt and bring pulled pork and sauce. Will anyone have a kitchenette to warm it? What about a grill or some such, and a table? We can start a list on whose bringin' what for the Sat. night meal. Won't take much, it's more about the company than the food. Folks who have followed my build thread know I'm close but not ready to splash. I did find this rental for kayaks. http://www.dolphinkayak.net/rentals.html It's right there locally so I have reserved a tandom hobie with a mirage drive. Should be fun and I've been hankering to try one so here's the chance. Other guys can give it a run too if interested. He rents singles also with the drive at $79 /day. Nice fellow on the phone, says he'll work with me on half day rates, etc. I can just leave it at Clark's and he'll pick it up Sunday at no charge, so that's really nice.

Gearin' up Dougster

I'll bring my deep fry burner/boiling pot and a 6' foot table. Clark's has a charcoal grill we can use.

Well, not going to make it. It's just too late in the summer. My daughters started school activities last week. I thought I'd get a break, but it's not meant to be. Maybe next year we can do it in July. This close to school is just too busy to get away. :cry:

I put the pork butt on last night, and it's sitting on 161 degrees right new. Shooting for 185-190. Hope we got something to go with it!

Says we'll eat Dougster

Thing's are gettin' shaky, but I'm gonna be there, with a kayak, 5 lbs of pulled pork, and Dougster's "good for what ails you sauce".
It's got some kick, but I got some brew too.

Gonna be there Dougster

Dougster and Mad Dog are on duty with a plan for early morning fishing. Going after trout, reds and flounder in the baywaters. Will probably get some showers (30% Sat , 50% Sun :roll: )but we'll be wet from wading anyway. No worries man...
