Got the five packs of boudain that were on the shelf.
Made it home safely in 3 hours flat going through Orlando on SR 50 again. Hardly any traffic. But from the Swamp to about Groveland I swear every light turned red just as I came up to them. And windy! Looked like about 25-30mph all the way.
Great seeing everyone again after too many years! And meeting some new folks, too. Alan & Jolinda, thanks again for the great hosting. Just wish I had remembered my camera.
Made it home in just at five hours. I slabbed it on I-75, than took 70 west till 27 and there was little to no traffic!
Thanks Alan and Jolinda!! I had a great time meeting old friends and making some new ones too. Those rally guys were a group of good peeps.
I agree Mark, it was way too long!
We're loaded up and headed to Charleston. Thanks for the great stories, food and spot to camp. Much appreciated and presented graciously in true ADV spirit.
From the Swamp to the Trans Florida and back home to Jupiter yesterday. Thanks for the crabs and campsite!
Had a blast seeing some old friends and meeting some new FFs as well. Tai have a wonderful time also, thanks to everyone who showed up. And yes, been way too long. Was hoping to see Scauuuuutt! and Eloy, what happened to you guys?
And thanks again to Alan and Jolinda, you guys are great!
Sorry d00d, checked out early since I was running on 3 hours of sleep.
I'm sure Alan's shindig went on well into the wee hours.
I hear ya Eloy
Still had 35 pounds of crab left over Sunday
Picked 15 pounds for salad and bisque
Jerry took a ten pound bag and still have one left in the cooler waiting on HoJo's hair dresser to come by for it this afternoon
Let me know when you want to come over and we'll do it again
And since Mark brought Boudain
We still had all those brats and buns left over
Today being Halloween, we'll have a house full of kids tonight though
That the crab didn't all get eaten wasn't for anybody's lack of trying. I think everyone ate all they could hold. And the roasted veggies were killer. I actually had a nice balanced meal between crab, some boudain, and a whole bunch of veggies.
Watched some of the dual sport guys struggle for a while cracking claws with the blade end of the knives. Finally took pity and politely showed one how to strike with the heavy handle end and the others by him caught on. Doubled their speed getting into those claws.
Those veggies were great as was the crab. The day before Alan roasted a chicken with lemongrass and it turned out great too. Is a food-truck in Alan's future??
Veggies went good with the bacon mac-n-cheese
Think those guys that rode Trans-Florida were too tired to pick crab
I know they left a bunch of beer
Don't think any of them had more than a couple
That mac-n-cheese was killer! Anything with bacon in it is good!!
Irish Cheddar and bacon
Having one of their beers now...
Way freakin' Good
Barley Mow Quackalope IPA from Largo
Now drinking Swamp Head IPA from Gainesville
Notice one of the guys bought
Shock Top and
There was a whole sack of mandarin oranges in the frige that no one touched
Looking at KLX 450s
Of course none of them are street legal
BWTF! I'll just tag that fooker as an MZ 660
What do y'all think?
Hell, I forgot to mention the mac & cheese. That stuff rounded out my balanced diet. Good stuff.
Mention of a food truck above. For years we've egged Alan on to do some rib/bbq food trailers/trucks and hire some of the Scrub trained folks or train newbies. Until he does, the world is missing out. The time is ripe - over here all the food trucks except one are BBQ/smoked stuff.
Got to put my mullet smoker together
Cleaning 50 this morning
Tis the season
Alan, you studiously ignore the calls for you to get in the food truck/rib business. Or as its the season, smoked mullet dip; fried mullet filets on a stick with your sauce; mullet and cheese stuffed jalapeno peppers.
You owe it to the world of hungry people with experienced palates.
