Man make fire

A strange thing happened our first night of camp. We turned into camping people. At one point I was reading the Boy Scouts Handbook while Brian was chopping wood for our fire...which we (really just he) had collected from around the parkgrounds...with headlamps on...
(Any of our friends who are remotely outdoorsy won't find that interesting, but the rest of you should.)

I even busted out a bird identification book. You know, to identify a bird.

We stumbled upon Bluewater Lake State Park (in NM) right at closing time, hooked up to water and electric, and got to cooking our first dinner! Check it:

Check out the new addition to the Pleasure Way windows!

Steak, asparagus, pasta, and Kim's wine!

The next morning we even percolated some coffee and took it down to the lake. Not too shabby.


  1. 1. love the PW flair.
    2. what kind of bird was it?
    3. that dinner looks a heck of a lot better than what I had last night. i'm impressed.
    4. looks like y'all are having fun!!!

  2. Just remember, when you are camping and cooking meals, the 5 second rule is always in effect.
