    I overlooked someone signed up for cole slaw so we will bring potato salad along with the chicken and dinner rolls

    1 · 5 days ago

  • Tracey T.

    If you are coming from Jax take Hwy 90 head west (Olustee Battlefield exit) until you get to the intersection at 231 (look for the blinky lights). There is a store on the SW corner. Turn right and cross over the RR tracks. Go a short distance and turn right on the dirt road marked The Landing. Follow it for a short while then turn left and take it to the end. If you go into the picnic area of Ocean Pond you have passed the turn. Also, this is probably a mile or more past the Olustee Battlefield entrance so keep going on 90.

    Following up Tracey's suggestion, we need to know what culinary delight you are bringing whether you made it yourself or bought it at the grocery store (Publix has great chicken wings). We need appetizers, main dishes, salads, side dishes and desserts. Is our BBQ expert coming this year? Is Janie going to do some cast iron stuff? Is Kevin going to do a stew? Adult beverages are welcome so long as you bring enough for everyone!

    1 · November 24

    • Janie

      I will bring the fixings for cobler for sure. Not sure what else at this time as I have to work up until Friday evening. Won't have time to prepare much ahead of time. Definately adult beverages :)

    I most likely won't be able to camp, as I returned to work last week after two months' off with a tremendous about of work waiting for me. However, I will at least come for the Saturday pot luck, and will bring an African sweet potato-peanut butter stew and adult beverages, if they are permitted.
