We hope everyone enjoyed their Fourth of July weekend and is excited for more warm weather grilling! This week, we’ll be making these two burgers: Stuffed Portobello Mushroom and Caribbean Chicken, and also eating lots of these Ice Cream Sandwiches in honor of National Ice Cream Month! It's time to think about getting out to one of the many #EGGfests around the country - see a list here

  • I have been in the military for over 22 years and it sucks as much now as it did 20 years ago. But you gotta do what you gotta do. It was the big reason for my upcoming retirment, enough is enough. :woohoo: Pack them up and bring them with. At least you are in driving distance. ;)

    I think the big part for me is the unknown. Don't even have a place to stay yet. I know it will all work out, its just not the norm for us. But than again nothing in the world isn't exactly norm right now. Panhandle smoker thank you for all your years of service, its because of guys like you I have the ability to travel and work for a decent wage in this wonderful country of ours. Hats off to ALL our service men and woman around the world!!
    THANK YOU!!!
  • Thank you, truth is I enjoyed most of it. I got to see and do a lot of things I would have other wise not have. When you see the illegal migrants going through great lengths and risking their lives to get here you realize how good we really have it.

    I would recommend looking into a Camper to live in. I purchased a nice 1975 Airstream for $5,000 and lived in it for a few years by my self. Park rental was $250. a month with all hook ups and I sold my Silver bullet for what I paid for it 4 years later. Airstreams hold their value well. It is hard to beat rent for $250. and have most of the comforts of home and a place for the wife and kids when they come to visit.

    Iv got a camper, problem is camp grounds up here close oct 1. And I'm pretty sure ill be there longer than that. I'm not one to sit around and hope something happens tho. When I get there Ill hit the ground running. Ill find some thing that works out.
  • Good time to check it out and work something out with the owner "night security" type trade off. :laugh: They would probably be willing to work something out. It is not like you come in for the weekend and gone again. Good luck. Maybe something closer will come up for you. :)

    Good luck, Bob!

    My son-in-law is a crane operator and the jobs move all around. Kansas, Louisiana, next is Nebraska. But I think they are now going to establish a permanent base HERE (WooHoo) for my daughter and grandson, while he travels to the different sites.

    Best to you and your family!
