Works for me! I am booked off the 20-21, so I can cook those days (and the 20th is the DH's b'day).
How about this--if people have stuff ready this weekend, they can go ahead for this weekend, take the pics, etc., and post by the 23rd?
Or, in my case, I'm going to have things ready in stages, so I will be able to post in stages. But it all goes in the cooler on the 20th when we put the canoe in the water again (we are going canoeing Saturday--we've both been really busy and I really need a day off on the water...I'm a water baby. I can test drive some of the new recipes and tweak them between Saturday and the 23rd).
I think this is a really fun challenge for many reasons--(1) it doesn't involve any expensive ingredients; (2) I drive from ON to MN 3-4 times a year. I bring my own "road" food, so this gives me a chance to try other things, (3) it encourages people to plan a "day off" to play (or at least part of a day) (everyone should take time off to play--and being able to as an adult is important), and (4) no cooking on site. (My husband's uncle used to bake potatoes on the radiator (or maybe it was the engine--I'll have to ask) when he drove from NS to ON--the spuds were wrapped in foil, but I won't be doing that <g>). I am looking at this as a chance to test some ideas re: pack-n-go food, food that I can eat at room temperature or, at best, kept cold on ice in a cooler. I've pulled into my hotel in Marquette (10-12 hour drive, depending on the border--longer depending on the weather) and been too tired to go get something--it has been nice to dig something out of the cooler and know I wasn't going to end up with food poisoning. I have also arrived at my folks and they, for some odd reason, think I've brought dinner with me...get set, get ready, COOK on arrival.
And, lastly, this challenge reminds me of when my folks lived at Lake of the Woods and I'd spend July and August at the lake. We'd go out in the boat, fish, swim, laugh, eat, read in the boat, nap, and come home tired.
