Greetings from VA Beach, VA

Hello all. My name is Robert and I just retired from the Navy of 21 years 31 Aug. I recently purchased a LBGE in May of this year and haven't looked back since! I love this thing and what it has to offer to me, my family and friends. I joined this forum to make new friends and excel in making great food. Looking forward to all the sound advice. Thanks! BTW, I'm originally from Georgia and a diehard Braves, Falcons and Bulldogs fan :)

  • Thanks. I've been looking at stuff on here for about a week now. I was beginning to think I wasn't going to get approved to join -- guess I gotta learn to have just a little more patience lol.

  • Thanks. It indeed is a game-changer. My wife figured it to be an expensive yard ornament at first. She has a totally different opinion about it now lol

  • Who are these Braves you speak of? GO CARDS :) That said welcome and enjoy. I will be down in your neighborhood on friday with a new supply of butts. Have to stop at NAS Oceana and Portsmith commisarys.

  • Thank you. Since you are stopping by NAS Oceana you can drop one of those butts off to me!! :) sorry to say this to you, but your Cards will probably not make it in the postseason this season buddy. We will gladly take you as a band wagon rider......

  • I am not dropping a butt off nor are you allowed to go to NAS to pick your own. Even though your probably right :)

  • The butt part was a joke -- my apologies Sir. But we still have room on the wagon if you would like to hop on over!

    Welcome Robert.  I retired in July after 24 years.  Great feeling isn't it?  I'm waiting on my egg; picked it up from a fest in a few weeks.  Look forward to joining a new cult!

  • Welcome! I'm not a Braves fan but they've been a fun team to watch this year. I don't think they'll make it past the Dodgers though. Should be a great series, regardless.
    If the world is something you accept rather than interpret, then you're susceptible to the influence of charismatic idiots.

    Currently in Albuquerque, where I'm kicking ass every day, even without a basket.

    It feels great!! It feels weird to finally grow a beard and not have to cut it off before the work week stars lol. When you do get your egg, you will be in paradise my friend.
