Maybe the young possums need to start on one lane dirt roads to check the speed or speed-distant judgement before they go for a big time paved road crossing??? What a waste of good food when they cannot out run a speeding vehicle?

Back to my big Oak tree for watching the world.

Notes from the field:

Just so you boys don't think I've been a slacking'

I have been diligently marinating myself in the finer 100 proof substances and juggling life and job, and a renovation on my 72..
New frame new floor new plumbing new electric new bidet new beds new seating in front..all at the expense of my new cooking kettle and copper line. Y'all from down heah will know exactly what I am speaking of.

If I can get a couple more weekends in she might be capable enough for me to show up at y'all's festivities. Sho' nuff, I gotta get back up the holler and see whether things have calmed enough for the process to commence'.

Lucky Dave,

I flew up to Stone Mountain SP this weekend and I had to use radar because the fog was heavy. Roaring River was running pretty quick so you do need to check out your holler and work area. It may have had a little to much rain?

I saw a lot of possums and squirrels this weekend. I guess they thought they were safe because of the fog and rain..... WRONG. The OWL clan now knows where they live when the weather is bad. I did see a lot of wild grapes and acorns so by the middle to end of Sept. they should be really healthy (fat).

Sandlapper's big stew pot should have lots of protein in it this fall. And if we have a full campground there will be lots of folks to feed.

I look forward to seeing your vintage project this fall. Take care, see ya down the road.

Hey Jim, the Armadillo never made it quite this far up so we have to settle for plain ole possum.

Is crack'n open an armadillo anything like skinn'n out a cooter ??

Canadian newbies here, we are booked on site #68 and are looking forward to meeting you and experiencing your southern hospitality. Can you tell us about any plans for the gathering so we can bring meals or other necessities to contribute. Is there a schedule of any sort?

DebnJon,

Welcome to Alumalina fall edition. I think Sandlapper will post more later. It's a fun rather informal get together where we share a bit of stories, cooking, campfire time, lots of tire kicking and Aluminum.

The State Park allows a nice central gathering area and it turns out pretty darn nice.

Gary

Do we have an official wait list?? I'm currently booked in a site, but the old '57 may not be road ready as originally hoped. Still have a few weeks, so we'll see how we stand in early Sept. Would just like to know who's waiting for a spot.

Denise, work hard, burn the midnite oil, get there. It has been a long time since that rally at Carowinds and the Krispy Kremes. We would love to see your '57. I have 1 waiting so hold it till you know for sure.

Welcome DebnJon, glad to have you down our way. We will be sure you get an extra helping of our famous southern hospitality. Heck, we may even be able to scare up an extra possum for you to skin out.

We will be posting a schedule of sorts, along with some other info, real soon. Rally time is just around the corner.

Gary......almost time to hook up.

John

Greetings from "Flowdah". Wanting to get some of that low country barbecue after getting our fill of some fresh road kill possum. Please put Wendy and me down on the stand-by list. We have a 25' AS TT and should be able to get into any space. This will be our first forum rally.

Pat and Wendy Conway, tel 813 335-3493, wpconway2217@yahoo.com

Thanks, Pat

Will do Pat.

Wateree State Park is a great, lakeside park that will accomadate even the largest rigs. Paved roads/sites with water/elec and trees. And the rally ain't bad either. You will like it.

Sandpaper,

Can I hook up this weekend just for practice please? Maybe knock the surface rust off the rotors. Darn, before I can do that gotta fix a case of bottom trim droopitis rash.

Can at least test the firewood supply this weekend and see if it burns.

Gary

Cast Iron cooking anyone?

Folks,

Wish it was closer but got a few weeks to go so this might be a decent time to kick the coals under your cast iron cooking. We've had some fun with the old black DO's, skillets and griddles making several fine contributions.

So are you gonna bring your iron, heat it up and share a bit? I know Linda wants to make bean soup again, oh yeah gotta have some corn bread too. Hope we'll be cooking it on my steel camp tripod, it just looks right at a gathering. We've made a couple of eggstravagant egg bakes in my DO's and that is on tap for breakfast. I'd still like to make pancakes too. That big griddle I have needs exercised and a new DO cooking table that brings things up to a nice working height, sorry only room for 2 DO's but we can share as possible.

Jon (chillpoints) stepped in for Maggie this spring and I hope we can see and taste some samples from both DO bread chefs, each favoring their own style. If you missed Jon's cook station this spring, he has a real neat camp kitchen setup. This spring MPJ heated up a new DO and we tasted that success.

Camping and cooking, made for each other.

Gary

I will have the DO along, and plan on doing some bread. Hope the weather is cooperative.

Will also have stashed in the freezer a large jar of homemade jam.
