I forgot one thing before Chris left Duluth, MN for the pig roast. I had intended to say he respond with "ya sure ya betcha" instead of "no worries" as they say in Australia. I thought the FF members from the northern states would get a kick out of it!

I would like to be there, but I have some major work to do on a sawmill before the first of Sept.

Everyone seems to be having a good time, things are wound down for the day. I'm on pig mode for the rest of the night. When I switch propane tanks in an hour or so, and get everything running smooth on the cooker again, I'll try to get 2 or 3 hours sleep.  Smaller group then last year on a Friday evening but the food was really good. The corn especially. I'm hoping others are taking pictures. I had not even thought about it until a little while ago. I know they were taking a lot of photos of the pig cooking! :)

Sorry to say, I have tried everything to make this work and can't figure it out. I have to get to other things. We'll post photos when we can.

Since Jeff is on vacation and it is a bit early yet, I doubt that there is a 2012 yet.  He did not start this one until the end of May last year.  A search should find the pictures, etc. from last year's Roast.

Ok. Now I just have to come up with enough excuses to make that big of a road trip. Oh, and enough petro-dollars, too.  :-\

I spent $400 I think for 2400 miles round trip, including two hotel stays in Ottawa. Plus I brought home a free saw, so that cancelled out trip costs. ;D

I haven't checked yet but it is probably a similar distance for me, give or take a hundred miles.

Well, actually, after checking it out, it is only about a 1400 mile round trip. Not as bad as I thought. I was thinking Jeff lived in northern MI.
