had a good time, nice to see everyone
here's the 12v cooler I have, bought it 2 yrs ago, no problems so far.
it's in not stock but the same one with a wheel kit is in stock for the same price I paid.
there's lots of sizes from lots of companies, I picked this one because it was the cheapest at the time in the size I wanted

What a great weekend. The food Saturday night was off the chain. I enjoyed everything, but especially enjoyed the Brunswick stew that RWS brought. His wife is such a good cook. It was good to see everyone.

Wanted to let everyone know that I had an absolute BLAST meeting and being with you all and spending time with like-minded folks to discuss and share ideas!! GREAT food and fellowship was had by all--and if you went away from supper Saturday night hungry -- you have no one to blame for that but yourself!! So blessed to be a part of SEPN-Georgia and looking forward to meeting with you all in the Spring of '23 !!!--and will have my "better half" to accompany me then as well!!
Take care all and please know all are always welcome to meet with us here in Region 6 for our monthly meetings!!
Till next time we meet--Take care, God Bless--and KEEP PREPPING!!

The fellowship was great as always!  Itís always good to spend time with friends!

Letís talk about Saturday nightís Pot Luck.  Thanks to everyone for bringing the food and supplies!  Special shout out to Mrs Surveyor1 for the incredible pulled pork and The Commander for the corn casserole!  The Dutch oven apple/cinnamon roll cobbler with chopped pecans that TLWagg made right in front of us was simply insane!  The smell of that cooking would make a Monk end his fasting!🤔Ö. Iíve never met Mrs RWS but Iíve tasted her cooking.  I simply donít understand why RWS is not the same size as me???  She supplied 2 items, homemade Brunswick stew which was the best Iíve had in 40 years.  I wanted to eat another bowl but after eating her strawberry rhubarb pie at the last camp out we attended there was no way I was going to miss her blueberry delight!  I was not disappointed and was actually the first person to put a spoon into it and letís just say I was not disappointed!!! 

Looking forward to the next camp out and wondering (or fantasizing) about what goodies Mrs RWS has in store for us next time!

Try out these water bricks,  They have a pour spout sold seperately.  I found them online and ordered 3 to go with my 20 water bricks.  With a water brick sitting on the kitchen counter, you can turn the valve and fill a glass or pan.  3.5gal is about all I want to carry at a time.

I am a little late with this post, but I want to say that this is the largest number of campers I have seen yet on each day of the campout plus we had several day-trippers come out on Saturday. I hope that this trend continues.

It was great to see all the regulars as well as some new faces. The Camaraderie is the best part of the campouts! It was fun to sit around the fire and talk about whatever subjects came up.

The Pot Luck Dinner on Saturday was a real hit, especially with all the homemade foods and desserts that were brought. Like most people there, I ate too much and thoroughly enjoyed myself.

Once again thanks to Farside and Lilburner for organizing this great event. I am already looking forward to the Spring Campout. I hope to see you there!

It was great seeing everyone after so long. We hope to be more active now that we have more time that we can be away from home. I'll have to find a Dutch Oven recipe to cook next time.
