Awe man, shrimp walnut chili is my favorite. Just kidding, that sounds awdesome!

Bring your own utensils!

I said this last rendezvous, but I'll repeat it:

BRING YOUR OWN SILVERWARE!

OK, we're not going to wash forks and spoons. We'll provide disposable plates and bowls. Bring a cup.

Mom and Dad,

I have a prescription for fried clams. I can show it to you if necessary. Unfortunately the clams give me a belly ache that can only be abated by chocolate ice cream. I can't sleep without BBQ. Will there be "reasonable accommodations" made for me or do I need to ask my lawyer to send you a letter?

Richard,

If I have to stop this car, I'm gonna swing, and I don't care who I hit!

My lawyer can beat up your lawyer, in any case.

Fried clams may be available at The Pond's Edge Pub, which is directly across the pond from the campground. I'd call.

They have a WICKED GOOD burger!

Funny you should mention that. Ms. B and I were talking about Carolina-style pulled-pork for Saturday. Slow-cooked pork shoulder, shredded, spiced, with lashings of apple cider vinegar on a grilled, buttered bun. IMHO, that's good eatin'. Likely have baked beans and slaw as sides. I don't hold with sugary sauces on BBQ. We expect the crew to bring their favorite selection of hot sauces.

Yes. Six years worth on the Appalachian Trail. Citronella oil is adequate as an aperitif or dressing for the bugs (some effect on mosquitoes, none on black flies), but has virtually no benefit otherwise. Keep it for the tiki torches.

Woodsman's is vile, but it works. It has citronella, true, but the primary ingredient is "rectified oil of pine tar." It makes you smell as if you've been slowly smoked over a campfire for about a week. It also gives you an instant tan, stains clothing, and takes about a year for the scent to fade. Great stuff!

DEET works, but has some real disadvantages. It will melt your wristwatch off your arm and destroy your glasses/goggles/faceshield if you get any on the lenses. It sweats off fairly easily, and yet gives your skin a really putrid, sandy feel. It's a very powerful chemical.

I take the Woodsman's for severe conditions, but have found that two natural products are a little friendlier. Natrapel works quite well, and doesn't have the disadvantages of either DEET or the pine-tar product. I keep a bottle in my tank bag during bug season.

Green Ban was a product from Australia that was also effective, but I haven't seen it on the shelves for quite some time. It appears to have been discontinued.

In fear of the resulting litigation that could arise from failing to deliver fried shellfish, I made a call over to Pond's Edge in IP. They feature fried clams during the summer months. It may be wise to call and confirm closer to the event. Ice cream is available at several locations, either in containers or dished up. I'd suspect they offer chocolate. It appears to be a popular flavor.

Moose and Squirrel have been deported to Siberia. Lucky bustards. Reading Colebatch's Sibirsky Extreme RR and drooling once again.
