Our First Annual Neighborhood BBQ



A rare thing happened over the weekend of the 4th of July 2007: nearly everyone who owns property in this valley came out here at the same time. That's never happened before, and they were only here for a few days, but we decided to have a BBQ. It was a huge success and loads of fun. We sat around until 11:00 p.m. and ate until we couldn't eat any more. Some of the ladies were a bit nervous about the bears but none showed up. Too bad, because the food was great! We all decided to try this again next year...


This is most of us, that's me on the left in the reddish coat. Dave is cooking on his giant Jen-Aire that he hauled over for the event.




That's me hoping Dave will take his eyes off the grill long enough for me to swipe something. Never happened. Jake (in the chair) has a cabin but no phone or electricity. Despite that, he's moderately well house broken...




Here is my brother Bob, Mikel (who hosted the BBQ), and myself. As you can see by looking at the three of us, I'm the one who rarely gets to eat. That's because they have jobs and I'm just a knife maker ...




Mikel and his wife Cascade. They live in BeiJing most of the time but try to come here once or twice a year...
