well I'm planning to head out there friday after work, if that's when most people are heading out. i'll be bringing some camping chairs, a cooler if we need it maybe we can team up jason, also i can run to costco and get some snacks too. and i have a little propane grille if peeps want to actually BBQ. Since i'm the only one here with a real jeep
I can take the firewood, we can load up the back of my zj with all the wood we want. It can be expensive to pay for a decent amount of wood but i think we should all start looking on craigslist for free wood and start swooping on it then maybe on thursday before we leave everyone can bring their wood over to my place and i can load up the jeep. seems like a good idea. if people get pallets break them up before you bring it over i don't think my apartment complex would enjoy hearing grown men with BFH's wacking the heck out of wood all day. let me know if yon need my adress i can PM you the info
My 2 cents recommendations
good pallets are generally oak and are great firewood, but do have to be cut up. Rip down the middle with a skillsaw and pull them apart. Whole logs will burn for hours so you don't need too many, maybe 4 for each night.
sat and sun breakfast. Egg burritos. Need tortillas, bacon or sausage and eggs. Cheese, sour cream, hot sauce all optional. The cartons of egg beaters from costco are super cheap and equal 8 eggs each, so figure 4 servers per carton. No plates needed and no cleanup other than one pan.
sat/sunday lunch: one loaf of bread and a jar of goober grape. Lunch meat is fine but has to be kept cold so it's an extra problem.
sat dinner hamburgers/hot dogs. again no plates or utensils needed.
friday and/or saturday night chicken wings and assorted snacks.
the hamburger patties and the wings have to be kept frozen so I can handle all that together. We can parse out the rest as soon as we have a head count.
drinks are probably best left to the individual.
I always tend to over bring and over pack then unpacking the leftovers on sunday night is an extra chore.
was anyone here a quartermaster?
