Got back from the meet and greet last night about midnight!
Had a great day meeting those who attended and totally enjoyed the atmosphere in the woods at the cabin. The cabin is located on a nicely treed lot with wooded background. There we some things we had never seen but will be building here at home like the turkey feeders! We have a great population here of deer and turkeys. The cabin had some picture albums showing the great history of the building of the cabin over many years. We met three generations of family members.
Great job to Rich S. for his feeding of the troops! The London Broil, burgers and everything else, yummy! If you left hungry it was not because of a lack of food. We arrived at 11am Richard was doing the food prep, and started cooking and was still cooking when we left after 5pm.
One of the highlights of the day was when Dave Donnora from Leisure Line rolled in with his truck and trailer with a working, whole house, anthracite burning stoker. I know what you’re thinking, and no it was not running until he torched it off for all to see. After 5-10 minutes he had a fully functional stoker furnace from the auto feeder to the ash pit. This unit was producing some really serious heat. This was a really cool touch.
I was considering bringing a hand fired Coal Stove Chubby but the weather was predicted to be cloudy/rain. We did drive through some very heavy rain Friday night, and that would have been a problem. Maybe next year. Nice to meet all of you people. See you next year!
