Harley and I are going camping in a couple weeks with a dozen or so of our good pals. Our camping buddies happen to be our riding buddies as well so, we are all pretty comfortable with each other. Big Ed, Beaver and the Lone Ranger, just to mention a few of our great friends, all come equipped with large RV's! With toy haulers! This comes in handy when we all go camping. We like to go to the Atlanta Motor Speedway and camp in the infield. We've been fortunate enough to be able to camp out with them while attending some local Bike Events and Rallies also.

A weekend like this usually takes a little planning and thought, so we can have a plentiful bounty, and an endless inventory of thirst quenching refreshments. This is where it gets interesting, and the carnivores and vegetarians start to emerge onto the task of planning the menu. "Keep the list simple" the carnivore says, "Just get Sausage, Steak, Ribs, Chicken, Sausage, Bacon, Hamburger Meat, Eggs, lots and lots of refreshing thirst quenchers and, did I say Sausage?" Most in the group just nod their heads and mumble something about sounding good to them. "Wait a sec!" interrupts a vegetarian, "What about some potato salad, macaroni salad, or a veggie tray with Ranch to go with all that meat!" Then someone pipes up, "Don't forget the refreshing thirst quenchers!"

Camping Rules - 101: Eat food with bones, it does not require utensils. In the event no bones are present, a slice of loaf bread to hold the food will work nicely. You must always eat in a standing position. The table and chair are holding the TV and Portable Dish. Have ample supply of those irresistible thirst quenchers. Paper towels may be handy. Class dismissed.

Well, don't worry folks, as usual, we always work it out and everyone usually has a great time! The Lone Ranger makes the best camping breakfast of anybody I know. There is nothing better in the morning after a night of fun and revelry, than smelling coffee in the air and bacon cooking. We can also vouch for Big Ed's talents on the grill. I personally don't think he can ever NOT cook good on a grill! As for our other pal Beaver, well, maybe we should just change his name to Mr. Dibbs. You see, he's like the ice cream man cometh. You can always count on Beaver to have those delicious little ice cream treats called Dibbs. They are yummy! See ya later, alligator! Lady R

Hope you have a blast. For some reason I have a urge to go out and wrangle up some BBQ now!

That sounds like so much FUN! What my wife and I wouldn't give to be able to just get away like that. I could SMELL the coffee and the bacon just reading about it! What I wouldn't give if my wife rode like you do!

Buying an RV and going camping as a family has been on our "list" for a few years now. Unfortunately, the budget hasn't been able to accommodate it yet. We have high hopes that if my lawyer does well for us with my accident case, a starter RV may finally come our way.

I'm looking forward to reading your posts about the trip and seeing some pictures! Enjoy!

Between your stories and mine, we're going to put a few pounds on ol' Road Grits Dave!

I loved this post. Sounds like any typical food discussion between men and woman. As for the picture of my cat on my blog. Two is a pretty big cat. At one point he was over 18 lbs. (BAD MOMMY) After years of diet food, he is down to around 13 now.

Joker, you just haven't found the right friends yet! HA
