Tropical Storm Hermine is tracking away from coastal Virginia and the backyard has been cleaned up and is back in order, –mostly.
Yesterday, Midge wanted to cook up a mess of hotdogs on the grill to not heat up the house. I had wanted to do a JoeTisserie chicken, but that would need to wait.
Well, today is the day! I was hungry for some outdoor cooking. Continue reading
Scott and I were itching to get out for a weekend fishing trip. It had been over a month since we had done a river fishing trip. The last trip being down this very same river, –the Rivanna.
Okay – what to do with that Kamado Joe JoeTisserie leftover Pork Roast from the yesterday cook?
Midge is out of town and I have a fridge full of take-out leftovers. I need to do something today before breaking out the vacuum sealer tomorrow.
Taking a few days off from work while Midge is out of town. Mainly I am dog sitting.
Today, the gray storm clouds were hanging overhead with an occasional sprinkle. Yesterday I picked up a just bit over the 4 pound mark pork sirloin roast for some JoeTisserie action.
Today was shaping up to be on the cooler side of the 100-degree mark. We have experienced about 2 weeks of temperatures north of the “feels like” 100 degree mark. There was a chance of rain later, but I wanted to get outside and get in a bit of fishing.
The Nottoway was on my short list, I wanted to paddle farther upstream than my last outing on this river. So I got up early, loaded up the gear, and headed on out the door.
I was hoping that the recent Amazon Prime day would have discounted the JoeTisserie. Unfortunately for me there were no JoeTisserie discounts today.
So I ordered one anyway for my Kamado Joe Classic. It was $263.94, including taxes, when I clicked Amazon’s “Buy it now with 1-Click” button. I ordered it Friday and it arrived the following Tuesday.
Today was one of those Plan B days!
I had planned to get up early and head out fishing for some quality outdoor time! But that was not to be the case today.
The weatherman said that today was going be the best day of the weekend.
With that bit of information, I hurriedly loaded up my Tarpon 140 fishing kayak on the truck along with the usual assortment of rods and baits.
This Saturday we headed out for a relaxing day trip to fish the Nottoway River. We decided on a 5-mile stretch from Double Bridge at Route 619 to the Route 630 Bridge. At both areas, there were decent ramps for launching canoes and fishing kayaks.
I noticed on my last trip that my REI Quarter Dome 2 tent had 3 small holes in the tent fly.
I suspect they were from pitching the tent when the fly was wet. As it dried in the sun, it got overly tight? Or, perhaps they are burn holes from campfire embers? I didn’t see any char marks, so I really think it is the former.
