        Hey Benzee,

        Fix the date on the topic.

        I will let you know as we get closer.  It all depends on when I leave for(possibly) The Capital One Bowl

            I would love to attend this get together, however i don't drive on highways.  If some who lives in New Jersey would pick me up in Kearny, I would be happy to chip in for gas money.

                            Hello all ,

                            Advised by Brooklyn Bill that Skip and Barbara will be joining us also . Two new roadfooders that are "lurkers" to the site  but havent posted yet .

                            That brings us up to 18 definites with  less than 48 hours to the meet .
                            Anymore let me know so we can give a semi accurate count

                              ...And maybe even me, too, if the creek don't rise. 

                                  I'm thinking of combining it with a scoot afterwards to Pete's Hot Dog Stand in Newburgh, if time allows.

                                      Bossa Nova and Michelle
                                      and Larry Bennet

                                      Times Herald Record columnist Amy Berkowitz was unable to join us at the last minute due to work but hopes she can make the next one
                                      Eric Bressi " Elvis Lost Brother " may be joining us on a future tour as well

                                      The friendships we share every holiday for a few hours are very precious to Sandy and I . Thanks to this fine website we may never had met any of our friends here .

                                      Most followed Lous " hometown lead" and went with the two coney dog platter and it looked very popular to those that had it .

                                      Screenbear in the absence of John Fox gave a description of the dogs we were about to enjoy , he did us proud !!

                                      Brooklyn Bill had just recently returned from Guam of all places and Skip gave us some insights of how they serve the dogs or wursts in some far away locales  in Europe . Very interesting Skip

                                      Seafarer John and Gail looked great as always , it is a pleasure to beak bread with this legendary roadfooder

                                      Matt Gleason  has put together our Hot Dog Nation Facebook group and pics will be posted on there . Always a pleasure to see the Hot Dog King and enjoy some great conversation

                                      Bossa Nova and Michelle traveled over 100 miles asn Screenbear as well to join us for the day .
                                      They are definetly looking forward to the south jersey get together in March that John Sagi has put together and hopefully we can join in
                                      And Screenbear was headed to Petes in Newburgh for another dog and Matt may have been  joining him also .
                                      My good friend Larry Bennet stopped up as well , and enjoyed the dogs . He will be signing up for roadfood as well , ahhhh to pick a screename

                                      All in all a wonderful day with fellow roadfooders .

                                      For pics go to Facebook - Hot Dog Nation Group or go to my FB at Erwin Benz and you can access it there

                                        That's Skip and Barbara Digilio.

                                        Gail and I had a great time, good dogs, good company...

                                        Cheers, John

                                          I had a great time and it was nice seeing everyone again, most since the 2006 NJ tour.  The food was great as usual.  It's great to see others joining in and showing interest.

                                          Screenbear and I did meet up at Pete's for some more Roadfood before our ventures home, I north, he south...

                                            Glad you all had a good time. Sorry I couldn't join you. Some of us have to work, and I'm not off until the weekend. I called, but didn't have good reception. I tried unsuccessfully to convince Lou and Screenbear that they were jealous that I got to be in the great outdoors while you all were cooped up inside eating hot dogs. I don't think they were buying that.

                                            I'm looking forward to the pictures. Next year my day off is Wednesday, Dec. 29th. Hopefully you can schedule the Meet on that day.

                                            Hope to see most of you in March. I'm scheduling some vacation time so that I can attend.

                                                It was fun to be back here again where Roadfood all started for me. It was just a few years ago with Benzee, Coney Island Lou, and seafarer john -- on a hot June day:
                                                http://www.roadfood.com/Forums/tm.aspx?m=144132&high=Coney+Island+Restaurant
                                                Today, the dogs were, as usual, great. The company was also the same. It is close to a family gathering.
