It’s been a while since I’ve put together a blog post. My wife reminded me that it had been 6 weeks. Wow… things got busy here! For starters, we are now the proud owners of a new travel trailer — a 23′ Keystone Passport ultra-lite. Nice and cozy… just the right size for the two of us and the two dogs.
See? She’s happy happy happy!
Since taking ownership, we’ve put it to good use by taking it out on a couple of relatively short trips. These short trips helped us break it in and get it ready for a longer haul for us up to Winchester, VA where we met some of Heather’s friends for a long relaxing weekend.
In the Metrolina region of North Carolina, over 17% of the population lives in poverty. This includes over 209,000 children and senior citizens. Before leaving for our camping trip, I received a letter from Mizkan — the folks behind World Harbors marinades and El Diablo mustards — about participating in the Grill for America promotion. The premise around this promotion is simple:
- Take photos doing what I love to do best — grill and smoke meat.
- Write about doing what I love to do best.
- Showing some love to World Harbors and El Diablo!
I’ve taken care of the first two items for you by taking photos of me cooking all weekend long for my wife and her friends and writing about it all! But I need your help on the last item. You can like El Diablo and World Harbors on Facebook by going to this link (from here, you can like both pages at the same time). By using this link, you’ll help contribute to the fight against hunger and cast your vote for the Second Harvest Food Bank of Metrolina to receive a $1,000 donation.
And now what you’re all waiting for… action shots!!
A huge thank you goes out to Scott Manko of The Ross Farm for the pictures!! I’d greatly appreciate any support.
