    My forum activity will decrease between AUG 1st and AUG 14th. I'll still post some random food pictures. I won't be participating in the challenges or cook a longs.

    On WED morning I'm flying to Denver Colorado for 5 days. A friend has a cabin in the mountains in Aspen Park. About 15-20 of us are meeting out there for three days of grilling, drinking, and poker. I'm actually flying out a day early to meet a few friends for some site seeing and brewery hopping.

    After I return I'll have a couple of days to rest before Colleen and I will be driving to upstate New York. Rochester area specifically. We'll be staying with her sister. Its usually a four day party. They live really close to lake Ontario. We usually do some canoeing, hiking, and of course eating out and sipping some drinks.

    I'll post a few vacation pictures when available.

  10. I'm going to have to invite myself over...hopefully, I'll finally meet up with you before that, but this would be something I couldn't miss, no matter how busy things are with my family. :cheers:

    Most importantly I won the tourney on Saturday. It's called a circus tourney because of the crazy games that we play. Hence the trophy.
