New Years Trip Report - Non-Av Style (Lots Of Pics)

Mon Jan 07, 2008 5:45 pm

So we had a little get-together for New Years. I'm not big on invitations and usually just tell folks to come to the party, but this time, I made up some little "boarding-passes" that we passed out to our friends.

And here are your flight crew for the night's flight, Chip and Lisa -- along with our niece Melinda.

Flight time arrives, and we start preparing the back yard and also get the smoker going for the hind-quarter and butts.

On the right is Joe -- my brother-n-law. Hereafter referred to as the Chef. On the deck back there is Steve. He's a great guy that's a little down on his luck right now. I recruited him as "Yard-Boy" for the day to help out.

Here's the three grills for the nights food preparation.

Three bushels of oysters at the ready.

We're at cruising altitude now -- sit back and gaze out the window for a while.

As the flight draws to a close, I survey the damage to the cabin.

Fortunately for me, there were a few folks that didn't leave, and after kicking them in the legs to wake them up on Tuesday morning, I insisted they help clean the plane..... of course it didn't hurt that we had a whole bushel of oysters left, and promptly roasted them to accompany the bloody-mary's.....

I hope you enjoyed the flight as much as we did.....








Nice trip report.

Signed,

Dang skippy - don't need 50+ folks in and out of the house. Hell, it was only $73.00. This is the third party we've had the port-a-potty.

I did not know that non-av trip reports could be posted in the trip reports section...  Confused

Seems like you all had a very nice time there! Happy New Year 2008!
There was a better way to fly it was called Concorde

It's in the non-av forum, and not the TR forum.

Absolutely - and Happy New Year to you as well!

Great report Chip. If you throw a shindig like that, Mark and I will definitely be heading down to ORF or RIC for a Wings road game and beer this coming season.

I'll be ready. Let me know what game(s) and I'll get the tickets. I think I saw where Mark is booked on a trip for opening day, so I imagine it will be later in the season. Either way, we WILL have a shindig of some sort - guaranteed!!

Just a little..... this pic is from early in the afternoon before the bar was fully stocked.

Thanks for the interesting report, great ending;  Silly

You should see the ones that didn't "make the cut"  drunk 

Quoting Queso (Reply 12):

Yup - already planning the next one. Probably around July. Oysters won't be available then, but we'll think of something.

Well, since we didn't make our fireworks trip to SC that Saturday, we needed someone the had some.... [biggrin}
