I wasn't there, but I can attest to the prowess that Sloan has with the camp cooking... The man is a wizard with that stove!
What a great time! I got to put a lot of faces with names, and spend time with friends. Not only was the Cinco de Sandy fish stand awesome, breakfasts rocked too! The Dutch Oven was amazing. We definitely ate well...

I added in a couple more photos, Jesse and the Peach Cobbler, Saturday night footage, and a pic of Mike Kinney's presentation.
