ONE IRON, AND EVERYONE ELSE ALSO-[/b]

I just got off the phone with Pat Bosley of the Moonlite Family. He assures me that they will be ready for the onslaught of Roadfooders SATURDAY FEB 18th, AT 3:30PM CENTRAL TIME !
We can still arrive at 3:00PM but they will expect us on the buffet at 3:30...a good plan!
BE THERE !!!

I think these meetings go a long way at helping us all over the hurdles that sometimes arise using the "net only" for communications.

Here Here!! I REALLY wish i could get to this gathering!! I KNOW it will be awesome! would love to "break bread" with all you folks!! Gonna get together with Bushie yet!--maybe be could Brisket&sausage at next years Glee Club Gathering! Y'all eat an extra plate each for me now. ya hear?!

OK, since I have never met any of you, how will I know where you will be? I hear the Moonlite is a big place seating 350 or so. Will there be a banner or a special room that we will meet in? We could all wear big red hats so we know that we are a part of the group-------no wait, some other group already does that!

Our gift is wrapped and we are looking forward to the trip and the socializing!

Butch, just look around for the folks having the most fun. I think most of us will be arriving around 3:00PM. Most of us look like food lovers. All you gotta do is just ask if they are from roadfood.

I do not think you will have a problme although the place is huge. When you see a whole bunch of folks standing around having fun, I believe you will recoginize that you are there.

See you there.

Butch,
Ask the Hostess at the entrance for the Roadfood Group.We will be seated together in the "Board Room". We won't have a private room, but most of the other guests will probably move away from our tables when I announce the one rule..Keep One Foot On The Floor While You Eat!!

If only i could---but i'm afraid the van has been sold to my daughter and is --at this moment-probably still snowed in at its parking space in Brooklyn! It is about to recieve a new carb and paint job---PINK!!!--It is now the official Band van for "Jen Urban and the Box"---the next big thing in Rock and Roll!! Watch out for that name and when shes rich and famos i will get you all tickets! Tomorro she is having video realase party somewhere in NY. If you check her out on the web---Be Forewarned--this is NOT your mothers rock and roll band!

Once she famos and taking care of dad i wont have to work any more and will make ALL the gatherings I will be there in spirit!

64.5%? WJ, you must have passed along one helluva door prize, considering all the times Al has taken your name in vain. Whatever it is, I hope I draw it.

It is tough to be so "Middle of the Road" (Location-wise!)

Re- The door-prize, PP you'll love this one! Since it cost the WJ $32 and change to send it to me, I figured the least I can do is give him double the shipping costs in Forgiveness Points!

We are getting the dogs trimmed today....and the Bushie's arrive tomorrow afternoon. It is time for the Pre-game excitment to begin!

That is so neat of WJ. I think that we should all take him out to a local chain where he could enjoy some great fellowship

Thanks WJ for your contribution. We will miss you..

I will have several gifts that represent things that I enjoy and appreciate. I hope that whoever receives them will enjoy also.

To all who attend, you have no idea how much I enjoy this experience. This is our third year and it keeps growing and growing.

I will be leaving Knoxville on Friday about 11:00AM. It will give me a little time in Louisville to walk around and enjoy the downtown before I meet with the group at the Brown Hotel. I will enjoy the Hot Brown and after that, I will drive to Evansville to the residence Inn.

It appears that at this point, Iwaanago is still in althought it is still tenous due to work responsibilities.

I cannot wait for the Moonlite BBQ where i will enjoy pulled pork but I probably will skip the mutton. I look forward to the desserts also. After the dinner, I am driving to Nashville and will overnight at the Embassy Suites to meet with my brother and watch the Dayton 500 on Sunday.

If you see these two dogs walking around the edges of the lot looking for a "pee spot" it will be us at the other end of the leashes!

Meet Max and Rudy

Butch , They make a nice couple !! Duff and Demi will ride down to O-boro with us, in hope of receiving BBQ treats on the way home!

Sundancer, Since you have already tried a Mutton Sandwich, you don't have to do it again Saturday. I get one or two pieces of Mutton each visit just to remind myself that I like the Pork better. I do hope that everyone will try a cup of Kentucky Burgoo. I will be interested in a taste comparison from those who are familiar with the Brunswick Stew of the Carolina and Georgia 'Que.
Also recommended are the Brocolli Cheese Cassarole, Catfish, and Pulled Pork and Ribs on the Hot food side... On the cold side I always do a little of the slaw and potato salad, and from the Dessert area, Pecan or Chocolate Pecan Pie, Coconut Cream pie, and Blackberry Cobbler.

OK I'll quit now and get busy so I won't drool on the computer!

One Good Note- I filled the truck up with gas yesterday for $1.99 a gallon in Louisville. That's the first time in quite awhile that it was under the $2.00 level. On the Indiana side of the Ohio River it is still $2.10 or more most everywhere this morning. Owensboro and especially Henderson KY are noted to be the cheapest gas in the area, so plan to fill up while there.

Gas is still $2.19 in Knoxville. I just picked up my new car. About the same as the other new car that a kid tboned me. I traded it for this one. It has more bells and whistles but is esentially the same car. More horsepower and more gadgets.

Looking forward to Louisville and Owensboro.

The Oneirons (or is it Oneiron and Twoiron?) are heading for L-ville and will go to the Loiusville Slugger Museum before heading to the Hot Brown festivities. See you all and everybody drive safe, especially Al since he's footing the bill.

1-Iron, You've been at the Spanish Moss too much. Don't worry though, we can hock the Mrs.Iron new Camera at a local pawnshop to pay for your sandwich!! You guys drive carefully! See you Friday!

Keep in mind to pace yourself at the Moonlite. The Burgoo is great! The Rabbit food is good but the target is the variety of BBQ available. Here is/are a sample plate(s). Slaw and Potato Salad with Pickled Beets and a few shrimp on the left. Ribs, Pulled Pork, Mutton, and Catfish with Fried Apple Slices on the Right. Sweet Tea (what else), but other beverages are available.

We may have some other beverages available before the feast..

Definately looking forward to the Brown Hotel's Louisville Hot Brown.

I am looking forward to the fellowship with all my Roadfood friends.

See you guys there.

I'm so jealous that I'm going to miss that fantastic Mutton Q and all of your great company while I'm at some ho-hum 40th birthday party.[|)] And yes I'm going to show my friend what I wrote! For all those (BT) that think I'm self centered, now that's sacrifice!

Anyway, I'll be there in spirit and I sent a little bit of Rhode Island as one of the door prizes- Sorry- no clam rolls for those that were getting there hopes up high-
