Oh My My.  Oh Hell Yes.  Baby put on your party dress.

That was a fine camp with good friends and good food.

Great pictures as always Crash. Had a great time at camp KICCO. Got on the water and did a little paddling with Crash and Sam, great weather on Friday. Still full from all of the great food, thanks guys. Only took a few pictures.

Tried out a new inflatable car top rack. Worked great. Packs up to bread-loaf size, including pump:



Cooked up some Chicken and Steak Fajitas on the skottle grill and a Pineapple Upside Down Cake in the dutch oven for dinner:





Spyder cooked up some excellent Bear Sausage and Bacon on Crash's skottle:



Fresh Peach Cobbler cooked in a dutch oven for dessert. Need to half the lemon zest next time, was a little tangy:



Solo Stove Backpacking Tripod torture test. Too much heat for this aluminum set, one of the legs buckled. Not designed for direct fire use. Would be fine for a self contained, small wood burner:



Testing the capability of a small, backpacking sized mini spit. I need to up my chicken trussing game, and insertion method, the chicken would slip on the spit:

Wow what a trip to miss the food looks amazing as usual. I'm with you Tunnel that bear sausage is delicious.  I really like the photos of the early morning paddle looks like a fun time on the river.

Dave is quite the paddler.   


Always wondered about the depth of the rivers we paddle.  I used this hand held device,  and found that the Kissimmee River section we paddled was between 5 and 6 feet deep.  The channel was, at least in one place, 27 feet deep.

I think that our messy kitchen and bar deserves honorable mention.

Is that heavy "fire fly" activity I see in the nighttime photos?

Don't think so.  Raindrop reflections.  We didn't get much but it brought out the skeeters.

WHERE'S THE BEEF?  :P

 That's okay I see you have top shelf liquor.  ;)

Love the bow in the fog. I wish somebody in NY would get together.

There was beef.  And chicken, venison, bear, pork, shrimp and lots and lots of bacon.  I know, I know pork and bacon are kind of redundant, but there was a lot.

I love mine.  No batts.  Collapse flat.  Cheap.   And the light isn't blinding.  You can even tie them off and throw them in the water from your boat as a fish attractant.

I saw that today.  We have quite a few Wally Worlds in Jax --- Ozark Trail seems to be expanding their camping lines quite a bit.  I think their portable hammock stand will be my next acquisition.
