No one went hungry as the kitchen was manned continuously by an experienced crew such as Road Hog, RoadHog.jpg (30031 bytes) Keystone Bob, Preacher Steve, SherylVirginia.jpg (30888 bytes) Roadkill, Sheryl, Virginia, and several others.  Special mention is given to O So and  White Lightning as they handled the evening meals for two straight days.  Meals consisted of flapjacks, eggs, sausage, stew, two kinds of soups, corn on the cob, a medley of vegetables, cucumbers, tomatoes, potatoes, watermelon, and ice cream bars for dessert.  If you missed out on a meal, it was your own fault.
