Benzee,

While I may not always be fresh as a daisy, I can assure you I am not a "Bad Bog."

Benzee, it looks like I'm not going to be able to make it this year. I'll be doing off-site testing of my department's computer systems again, and this year there's little chance it will be cancelled, like it was last year.

However, this year I will be doing it from home, so I may be able to sneak out for a couple of the stops not far from my home. That would be Dee's Truck and Windmill. Is it OK if I stop by and say hello and have a few dogs? I don't want to violate any "Tour Etiquette" if it would be a problem.

Besides, I'm really anxious to see where two tour busses are going to park in downtown Westfield on a Saturday afternoon...

Hello all ,

Of course you can meet up with us Ken , we will figure out time estimates and let you know when we will be at these places. We were unable to get the second motorcoach so we went with the two Air Cond School buses . The cost for the second school bus is increased from the first as we ordered it after prices went up , but still less than a second motorcoach would have cost . Final result same cost to attend .
Two school buses will be easier to navigate the streets of jersey than two much larger motorcoaches but we were prepared to do either .
John , Lou and I plan on a pre tour tour as it were to figure out parking and to make sure there are no logistical problems .


Bad Dog , sorry about the spelling , it is now corrected . I really have to proof read my posts better , seems this happens when I'm rushing to get these posts in .

Benzee, I think someone is missing from the list.

BTW, Thanks for doing a great job at a thankless job. If you need any help, please ask.

Hello all ,

Glad you noticed Joe , my thinking of Grandma Fenczs secret hungarain sauce the last few weeks has really thrown me off .
Thats why I'm constantly updating the list . My hard copy list was correct as it always is , somewhere along the way my head did not transfer it to the thread . Thanks for the offer . John Fox has put together a great intinerary , Coney Island Lou has once again put together a great shirt as I've seen an early draft , and I got the transportation and reservations . If i can think of anything we might need I will let you know

<<Of course you can meet up with us Ken , we will figure out time estimates and let you know when we will be at these places.>>

Thanks Benzee. I will try to make either one of the first two stops (and call it my lunch break), and probably the Windmill at the end. As far as parking in Westfield, if you are doing a pre-tour, the police headquarters is across the street from the Windmill, to the right of Mindowaskin Park. As a "Fellow Professional" you might want to stop in and ask if they have any suggestions.

By the way, Mindowaskin Park is a very nice town park. Since the seating in the Windmill is limited, if it's a ncie day, it's nice to take out and walk across the street to the park to eat.

Thanks again. Looking forward to seeing everyone again, even for just an hour or so at each end.

It'll be good to see you, Ken, even if just for a short time. Dave, that's very nice of you! Say, if your cooler's large enough, and we put our names on 'em, could I throw in some of my cans of Monster to stay cold? If not, I totally understand! Will there be bottled water and stuff like that?

Hello all ,

A few have emailed thinking they could not attend due to the fact we put out Aug 10th as the deadline . We put the date out there because we had to reserve the buses . We have two and can put another 20 or 22 on the tour .
Anyone interested that have not emailed me yet feel free to join us .

CI Lou has designed the shirt and I emailed to those I have email addresses to . I will have Lou post it here in the next few days . Good Job once again Lou!!!

Hi,

I am glad to see Manny's Texas Weiners on the the list.. It was great last year in Linden, NJ. They really rolled out the red carpet for the tour and are looking forward to the tour this year...

Unfortunately, once again, I'm out.

On a very strict diet and am not able to eat. Going on the tour and not eating would be tantamount to torture.

Hello all ,

Cheesewit will not be joining us but Uncle Buck of WTBQ will be bringing his wife along . Eileen is looking forward to the trip .
Any more interested parties email me or post here .
Coney Island Lou , Uncle Buck and I enjoyed the Sussex Skyhawks minor league baseball game this past Sat. night .
Buck and I threw out the first pitch and we talked a little about the tour with some attendees .
Hot Dog ratings were nothing special from our group . I think Lou gave it a FAIR . Basic condiments available .

I was on Roguefood.com and Debbie (Website Goddess) posted these pictures from the 2005 Tour. It's been almost 3 years since I looked at them, but it was nice to see them again and enjoy the memories they brought back. For you newcomers to the Tour, this is a taste of what you can expect.

Located in Union about halfway between the Galloping Hill Inn and Manny's Texas Weiners is Lutz Pork Store. Their German style beef and pork hot dog was named Reserve Grand Champion by the American Association of Meat Processors by participating in the Annual American Cured Meat Chamionship held in Cincinnati July 26, 2008. I was happy that a place near me had gained national attention with their fine franks. http://germanvalleyfoods.com/id15.html

I went and picked up some since it had been about 2 years since I've eaten one of their franks. They are very tender, juicy, and fresh. Mild, but not bland; very typical of a quality German butcher frank. Lutz's has been in business almost 50 years and is known for their other fine meats and sausages.

I spoke with some of the guys working there about our Tour and was told to speak with the owner who was not present at the time. I think Lutz Pork Store would make an excellent stop for those of you looking to pick up some fresh German franks and sausages. I suggest bringing a small cooler so that you can stock up. Franks are sold loose and in packages. Other sausages such as bratwurst are also sold loose. You can buy as little as 1. There is also good German and Polish sauerkraut and a selection of mustards.

I finally spoke with the owner who said that if we can arrive about 1:30, he will provide some samples for us. It's a small store and they don't sell hot dogs that are prepared to eat like a hot dog joint, but that he would have something for us. I think it would be good to see an authentic German butcher shop, sample some of what they have, and be able to purchase some fresh dogs and sausages if we want. These kind of places are slowly disappearing.

We will start at the Galloping Hill Inn as mentioned, then head to Dees Truck. Depending on the time, we will either head to Lutz's, or go to Manny's or the Windmill first.

If ever any member deserved sympathy, I do.

Cheers, John
