    we experienced some rain during the paddle, warm,, it offset the usual winds on the Chesapeake River, so it turned out to be a vey pleasant paddle.

    Alrighty, an update on the meats. I have Montreal Chicken breasts strips, homemade Smokehouse Maple pulled pork with au jus, BBQ spareribs (Sweet Baby Rays Original sauce), and large 97% seasoned burgers. We could use some good rolls for the pork and burgers so if anyone wants to do that it might be good.

      I'll bring some rolls.

    I think going into town may be a better idea, since it's kind of a show and go, at least for the first nite. Then we can get an idea of who wants to do what. Will see you early Fri. also. Look for a camper on a white ford truck.

    Denise I think a covered dish dinner is a great idea. Let me know what I can bring if thats what you had in mind.
