Got home about an hour and a half ago. The pop-up made it back to Columbia in one piece. :biggrin:

 

Thank you again Jerry and Karen for opening your place up to the rest of us and being such gracious hosts. This is truly an incredible event and I look forward to next year's. Also, thanks to all of the contributors. You know who you are and I am not going to name names in fear of leaving someone out by accident.

 

All of the spectacular food and comradery make this event a very special time for each participant.

I would like to thank everyone who attended it was a lot of fun. It was good to see old friends as well as making lots of new ones. A special thanks goes out to all those who help out without your help we couldn't pull this whole thing off. I'd also like to thank Tulsa Jeff for his support which allows us to continue and grow the event every year.

What an amazing gathering, best food ever only surpassed by best people ever.  Thanks Jerry and Karen for your gracious and giving hosting.  I know it was a ton of time and work to pull off such a great event.  My first time, so everyone was a new friend to meet.  I hope next year to plan better an be able to camp out with all of you.  I learned a lot of new things an will have to expand my to do list again.

For those of you that left early (before 10 AM Sunday) I apologize for not being awake to say My goodbyes.

 We Got into some great conversation around the fire Sat. night and when someone actually looked at their watch it was 6am Sunday Morning.

4 of us were REALLY tired for the drive home for sure.

  For those of you that have never attended a gathering ,DO IT !!!!.

Don't worry about what you will do ,It doesn't matter if you are a new smoker or have been smoking for ever.

More than likely ,it wont be a gathering of this size as Jerry and karen and a few friends have worked years to build this one to the size that it is now.

The First  North Fla gathering had maybe 10 people there.

  If there is no gathering in your area think about planning one.

 You can make it as simple or elaborate as you would like. You can make it a pot luck or you can plan a menu.

 The friends you will make and the things you can learn are  priceless.!!!

Thanks Jerry and Karen again for the great time. Was awesome to meet some new folks. To many to remember all the names again.  Meant to post that I was back yesterday safe and sound but got busy unpacking and re-packing for my trip out of town for work. Jerry if you find a couple of long sets of tongs they belong to the camp now! Hoepfully I'll be able to make it again next year. Lso for all those that cooked, prepped, and brought food thank you very most for making this the biggest one every. Ice Daddy nice job on the bagged ice machine. That was a life saver.
