Gas stop in sone Podunkville Indiana. Brandon has been inside so a while. I sure hope he isn't being molested. The truck parked in front of me had a cobbled together plywood camper on the back with a sign on the back door saying something about Jesus' tough love... Brandon has returned, unabused. Back on the road!

300 vehicles sitting here idling. This is green energy...

Friday night's events were as follows:
The pre show ended and tables were set up. Joegoat and Bdaily laid claim to one for CPS with no bloodshed. Slowtoke and Winton had been sighted prior, but had not yet been drawn into the CPS gaggle. Kaydens' presence remained a rumor.
Bdaily sees a familiar face in the crowd and went off to either make a fool of himself or catch up with an old friend, leaving Joegoat alone. Three strangers, soon to be friends, appear at the table and ask Joegoat if the seats are available. Joegoat invites them to join. Introductions are made. The two gentlemen are Canadian. One is Ardell. The only Ardell per his claims, but he is not our Del. The young lady is from Springfield Missouri, the one from the Simpsons per her claim. They stayed and did not run away, even when Bdaily returned.
Big Will was next to arrive, he towered above the crowd as he searched the smoke filled tent for the glowing faces of his friends. He found us and joined. He brought food from the outside! Shame? He had none. Slowtoke joined the group next. Nate stopped by. The two Canadians moved on. Not Slowtoke's fault. The young lady stayed.
Dinner was at 7:00. Del met us there. Dinner was good.
Back to the smoking tent. The young lady was still with us. We were doing well at being a foster group and considered her adopted by this point. Pipes were lit. Del is tired of wearing pants and changes into his kilt in the parking lot. Nate stopped by and told the story of Sean from McBarren and Big Will followed with the story of Thor. Nate passes the secret of the hospitality suit to us. We decide to go down. Nate gives us a tour. This place is wierd. Crowd is cool though. CPS guys stay till 11:00 lots of fun is had. We went to bed.

Likewise, bud. It was a bit surreal for me to actually meet a lot of you guys last year.
It is odd meeting people half a world away that you only know over the internet.
I still remember the first time I met Del and Pipeson. It was at Oshkosh in 2011. It's cool to put a face and a voice with the posts we read on here though.

Hey y’all! Look who showed up for his annual forum contribution weekend!

Saddened that JMG isn’t here. Was looking forward to seeing him.

The late Saturday report...

Bdaily and Joegoat wait in tent for show to open. Talk with guy from Pittsburgh and guy from Miami, names of which are forgotten. Show opens, no sign of Ardell or our Del nor our newly adopted honorary CPS member (CPS handle pending). Benders and displays are enjoyed. Joegoat sits in smoking tent alone. Bdaily, Winton, Winton’s son and Del partake in a resort restaurant for lunch. New honorary CPS member spotted across the way looking for a snack. Invite her to the end of lunch and she refills our drinking glasses while our waitress is MIA. Meanwhile, Joegoat has multiple pipe smoking old men rotate through the table. Not particularly conversational. Group joins smoking tent. Pipes are smoked, laughs are had. Thor makes its annual appearance. Del goes off to Mass clad in kilt mumbling about the music he was about to endure. Gathered party for dinner at Giordano’s bringing along Alexander Pipes and Co. Del too full to attend. All meet back in smoking tent. Small mason jar of hooch brought out to share. Jeremiah stops by and joins the group. Theology discussed, Virginia’s smoked. Del starting to fade, leads the exodus for the night. Will bids adieu for the year.

We met up with kaydens along the way. He gifted us with a package of St. Bruno Flake for Saturday night table.
Sunday morning breakfast tradition at i-Hop. Joegoat, Bdaily, Del, and our new young lady friend.
Kaydens also appeared, with a young-and-attractive Asian lady. He pretended not to know us.
Told the story of the Olde North Pancake House, in which Del bellowed incoherently for coffee and hash browns.

Met with Skip in the smoking tent. Skip coached our new friend on how to answer the CPS firewall questions regarding smoked meats and tacos.

New friend was heart-broken that she wasn't able to enter the slow-smoking contest. She won second place in the Springfield, MO slow-smoke. Her time there was nearly 1.5 hours.

I just recently arrived home. Lots of fun for all, Not much sleep, Too much food. Life is good.

I think the funniest part was when Del was cursing at a church's website, as he tried to figure out when their Saturday Mass started.

Glad to meet a lot of new friends and some that I have know for years.

I got to meet new CPS member smokadoro!

He brought his wife and infant son, and they were headed out to find the perfect pizza. He just managed to find that guy in the kilt before he left.
