Cooking With the Troops Meets Warrior Hike: Pictures and a Plan!

As promised, here are pics from Cooking With the Troops' weekend barbecue for Warrior Hike. This group is in the process of "walking off the war" along the Appalachian Trail. On Friday, the hikers stopped off in Front Royal Virginia, and were met with good food and great company, courtesy of CWT and our master BBQ-er, Concrete Bob.

Harrison Martin, who helped organize the event in conjunction with VFW Post 1860, was on hand with her camera. She has very kindly allowed me to use some of her pics. As you can see, the mood was decidedly upbeat. Which is exactly what happens every time Bob lights up a grill. We're so happy about this Warrior Hike outfit, btw, that we already are scheming on ways to meet this group with even more good food at trail's end!

Bob has a ladle, and he's not afraid to use it.
More pics, after the jump...

We love volunteers!

Thank you, VFW Post 1860.

Can't talk... we're eating...
If you look closely, you will see Harrison, Bob, and
Boston Maggie amid the hikers and VFW folks.

Thank you Susan and Bob for letting me take part in your awesome organization. I look forward to more opportunities to help in any way that I can. I have a feeling that great things are ahead.

Harrison, thank you so much for helping to arrange this! Yes, great things come from great partnerships, and we are so fortunate to have you in our midst!

You want SKK to email you some pictures? Oh I am not going to touch that one... lol

Alright Sweetums, you need to re-post the images, because I can't see them either. What are using to embed the images? Blogspots image upload or are you linking to a seperate server?

Susan Katz Keating said...

Okay, can you see them now?

Michael said...

I can see them, but I do notice that you are quite adept at camera avoidance...

concretebob said...

Much better. Michael, she's good at avoiding the camera b/c she's very shy and reserved. We have to drag her out of her shell. You do believe that don't you?

Michael said...

Abolutely, Bob ! She's a real shrinking violet.

Happy Birthday greetings from the left coast reprobate!

Susan Katz Keating said...

You guys are talking abut me again...

Michael said...

Did you hear something, Bob?

concretebob said...

I aint heard shiite all week. Thats my story and I'm sticking to it.

Hmmm... perhaps I should turn up the volume on this bullhorn. It's challenging when you have a soft voice...
