OK so it looks like 24 is the final head count that will be there over night Sunday / Monday.

That's a boatload of eggs for breakfast then.
Maybe I should bring a chicken then roast her that night. :-D Nah, we'll have fish for dinner. If no one wants to stick around and eat in the morning we can do the brunch deal like last year. Thoughts, opinions, flames...

Brunch works best IMO.
It's looser and the thought of getting up at 4:00 am to cook breakfast for 25 is daunting.

I'll vote for brunch. Who's going to run to Dunkin Donut's at 4:00am for coffee?

Don't feel alone in this quest! Just ask for volunteers, I am certain you will have partners in crime in a heartbeat. Count me in on the chef line, just give me my orders and I will do what you need done.

With this kind of crew, do we have enough grill power? I will bring my portable grill. Maybe someone should bring an extra stove or two? What do you think?

Oh I'll be OK cooking breakfast. Thats a piece of cake. I'll bring my stove even if it's just a backup.

You guys are easy. What I dread is cooking a lasagna spaghetti dinner for a high school football team. Let's see 150#'s lasagna 200#'s of spaghetti, 110 loaves of garlic bread... you get my drift.

I think if we put off a big munch for brunch we should have some quick pastry junk or some such food for early fishing energy. Flame on! :-D

Coffee: We got 3 French Presses. Someone could bring a perker. Not everyone drinks coffee. We'll squeak by. For instance Sully drinks Decaf Herb Jasmin Tea in the morning.

3rd Stove: Thank you Sully
3rd Grill Thank you Juro

If anyone has a spare gas hose, bring it. I have a gas tree with 3 ports and that will save on those 1 lb. gas bottles. It's the kind of hose with the smaller thread on both ends, NOT the kind that goes directly into the large 20lb prop. tank. (with reverse threads)

I've got another gas hose, It's on the list.

I've got a 100,000 BTU (cause 50,000 is not enough Power!) LP Burner with tank; if yous thinks we can use it let me know. It boils 2 Gals. of water in about 1 minute!

Before reading Greg's post above, I was going to offer to bring my colman peak 1 hiking stove. I've boiled 1 cup of water in a minute while hiking in the Rockies, but he's got me beat by a mile!

Seriously, I could bring my for boiling water for tea, etc. if it would help at all. It's quite small & I can fuel it up beforehand w/ colman fuel.

Grego, Todd,

I think the 3 stoves (=6 burners) should cover it. (I've been wrong before though!)

BTW Grego, my brother has a couple of those too. Wow, talk about power torch!

Do you think if I put Greggo's afterburner on my kayak I'd be able to chase down the green machines? ;)
