Hey guys, it's been so long since I've been on the forum I had to create a new account since I can't remember what my old one was.

Anyways, I had the good fortune to meet Jared last week and he told me about the meet. I'm local, so I will be there for sure. Got another local buddy that I am trying to talk into coming as well.

I gather food is pretty much taken care of at this point, but I'm happy to bring anything that might still be needed, or throw some cash in the pot.

Hey, I was wondering when you'd show up! Good to hear you'll be out. Yeah, I think food needs are covered, but everyone always appreciates beer, and there will be a donation pot on the table if you want to enjoy some of the bbq/burgers/fixins we'll be having.

Okay we'll get the good stuff.
I agree on the 'merican cheese. I'll look around on the internet, I made some fantastic stuff last year for Thanksgiving - lawwwdy.


So I did vulunteer Thursday to be part of FEMA's 'federal surge workforce' so there's a chance I'll miss all of this as I have 48 hours to report if I'm called. I will ensure what I've signed up for makes it to MM2017 though.

I may have to relinquish driving duties friday if thursday night's work activities take the same amount of time and effort as they did last night. Fortunately, I seem to recall rob being fairly proficient with el manuel.

I think we're going to need a lot more beer than we expect. I'll bring some waters and stuff also just in case. You can never have too much.

One of the attendees is bringing a 5gal keg of something from Sierra Nevada. If everything goes to plan, I should also have some of our local Appalachian National Beverage for sampling.

I'll be making a costco run here today or tomorrow.

Get the butts out of the freezer if you haven't already, they're going to take a while to thaw

Yep. Clearing space in the fridge tonight. Depending on fridge space, I might be using the laundry sink full of water downstairs to bring them out of cryostasis.

Jared your wife said you guys had corn. Am I buying corn or no?

Also I have 'bread' on the list. I feel maybe I need to get that down there? That french loaf doesn't have much of a shelf life.

I'm going to bring those tenderloins and they'll double as my ice. Should be thawed by early Friday.

That's what I'm planning on doing with the ground beef, getting it, getting it frozen, and using it in the same fashion.

Reckon I'll get some high life at costco for rob.

Turns out we don't have as much as she thought...only about 7 ears left. Go ahead and pick some up if you don't mind. Should be pretty cheap.

Alden is bringing burger/dog buns. Wren requested the bread...maybe he can clarify how much is needed. I don't remember using much last year except for those who wanted BBQ sandwiches.

So like last year I'm bringing a 15lb case of bacon. I'll also bring enough sausage, whether it be patties or bulk ground, for three days worth of breakfast. I can get everything from a food distributor that supplies the restaurant I used to work at. If there's any kind of bulk food items you guys need that you can't get, I can try to get them there.

Affirmative. Depending on ground beef supply, they'll probably cover Friday or Saturday lunch as well.

Ok.

I believe I have nailed down my mac and cheese recipe. It is supposed to produce 50 half-cup servings, so that's me and like 2 other guys.

Cheeses include
Colby
Sharp Cheddar
Parmesan
Gruyere
Cream Cheese

Hopefully yummy.

I'm headed to BJs now to get all the other bs.

Throw in a decent size bottle of Heinz 57 or cheap off brand equivalent for my burger receipe and we should be set I think.

aight I ended up with around 11lbs of ground beef. shouldn't have stopped at costco (oh well, it's the good stuff). Still gotta pick a couple odds and ends up, aside from dropping the caR off to get the oils changed, it's ready to go.

Sweet. I'm taking the rest of the week off starting tomorrow, so today is going to drag by. Tomorrow is trailer/griddle/grill pickup day plus packing and sanity checks.
