I know it is early and the epic event is still a few months away.
But, The LDT is in the planning stages right now.
Looking like we'll have a Canadian, a Texan, a Aussie, Detroit, and a couple Heartland Bolters.
Road trip plans will be posted as we work things out.

Don,

My Dad and I are in, so you have a couple Michiganders to add to the list.
You got us hooked on the Stovebolt scene, and can't shake us now.

Great Tom!!
Looking forward to meeting up with you and your Dad Jim again!
You both are LDT members.
Just don't call Tim, that Crazy Aussie! He will try to live up to that name!

Just got confirmation.
Tim will be landing in mid Missouri April 9th.
So we will have a week to get to the Homecoming.
Any suggestions on what to see and do in that week?
I'm thinking Memphis and Nashville needs to be in the mix.
New River Bridge walk would also be cool. Maybe Tom and Jim can join us on that.

Don,

Per your recommendation last year my Dad and I stopped to check out the New River Bridge on our way home from Lexington. Amazing site!
We didn't do the walk last year, so I am open to giving it a try.....hopefully no fear of heights kicks in....
What day would you be traveling through that area?

You should check out the Roadtrippers app. Handy for finding obscure and interesting points of interest along the road, as well as trip planning.
I used it on my epic road trip down to the lower 48 this past spring. Caveat - it does have a few glitches in locations.

I'm thinking Monday after the Homecoming for the bridge walk.
Tim and I will head out from the Grigg's compound Sunday.
Stay overnight in Beckley or Fayetteville WV.
Do the bridge walk on Monday.
Then bee line it back to mid Mo. so Tim cand catch his flight back down under.

These are just thoughts right now and it will depend on Tim's flight schedule.

Understood, and it sounds like fun. We will keep it on our radar.
Are you hauling any boat anchors East this year on the way to Homecoming?

I don't know yet what I may be hauling. With spending a night in downtown Memphis and another night in downtown Nashville.
A trailer would be quite cumbersome.
But, I would like to see the 65 GMC find a new home.
I will have the deep fryer and goodies to drop in the hot oil.
Just ordered a french fry slicer so we'll see how that works out.

Ron, you told me about that place place last year, but we did not stop by there.
May have to hit it this year, but we'll see how our time works out.

By the power entrusted to me by the "Grand Pooh Bear" himself (John Crosby Milliman).
I now award you with the honor of the official "Potato Slicer and Dicer!"
Your Dad Jim will be your backup to make sure the taters are washed, sliced correctly and cooked to the proper degree of excellence.

Hey look! It's a ...
Don, As far as the ODSS, and its functions go, I entrusted you with no such authority. That authority is held solely by the office of the President (currently Cosmo) and executed through the office of the Sergeant at Arms (the Right Honorable Mr. Sweet). You are certainly welcomed, and it is within your purview to award titles within the LDT, or to put forth nominations according to the ODSS By Laws (I would refer you to Section MLVXXIV, Para 374, SubSection 543 in the most recent edition of 16 Jan 2020, with Change 43) but as far as the greater ODSS is concerned, no. To do so constitutes an usurpation of presidential authority that rises to the level of a coup, treason, even. I think that I shall refer the both of you (Tom, as well, seeing as how he is on record above as having willfully participated in this unspeakable and treacherous act against our President) to the SAA for investigation. In the meantime, I suggest you both start putting your defense team together.

Besides, seeing as how we have an official ODSS Chef, as well as a sous chef and a Breakfast Czar, they may want to be part of the decision process for naming an "Exalted Grande Potato Slicer/Dicer" as it is not a trivial office.

Otherwise, have a great day and keep up the great work!

Oh, and don't forget these other culinary offices within the ODSS hierarchy:

Cupbearer to the President
Chancellor of the Processed Meats
Royal Baker
Malted Beverages Distribution Team Leader (the "St. Paulie Girl")
Wild Game Warden
and not to be overlooked, BBQ Bubba and his other brother Darryl

To which we are now apparently adding "Starchy Tuber Samurai" .... ok by me if that's what the executive positional approving committee forwards to the President for approval.

I have been stripped of my Tader Title before even taking office, and have found myself in a position of fighting to clear my good name.

Grand Pooh Bear, John C Milliman!
I contest your declaration.
By the power you entrusted in me as the leader of the LDT, I get to appoint who I want, to be the Tater Slicer.
Tom and his Dad Jim, WILL be the official slicers and guardians, to watch my back when the tubers are being submerged in hot oil.
Just remember, the LDT may outnumber the ODSS at this epic event.
We will also have an Kiwi to back us up.

But, I will abide by what the ODSS President rules. Just as long as he helps with the slicing and dicing!

Tom, Sounds like you could use some counseling/Life Coaching. I know of a good clinic in Virginia. But the next opening isn't until April. They take walk ins.

Ooops, OMG ... Carl .... How could I forget Beaverstick Bearer?? blush Did we ever go over your official duties? You'll have to check with Sweet, but I think you are the Lord Commander of the President's Ceremonial Guard Detail. Not to be confused, of course, with the commander of the President's actual security/sniping/reconnaissance team who is, of course, the NAPCOMan

Oh, and in the event of CGF (Catastrophic Grill Failure -- An ODSS DefCon 7-level event), you are to surrender the Beaver Stick to Marlow (as the Overlord of Processed Meats) so he can use it to prepare the processed meats over the open fire that Roache (as Underworld Fire Princess) builds while the Malted Beverage Distribution Team Lead (um, I think that's the Kiwi/Aussie hybrid) makes sure we are all properly prepared for the ceremonial ingestion of processed meats and other high sodium content, non-nutritional foods). Oh, might as well mention your other office -- which falls under Marlow, BTW: Deputy Overlord for Unprocessed Opportune Meats (e.g., roadkill)

Don -- Spare us your inflated protestations! You have no defense! You will, of course, be found guilty of treason and will (as Carl has already decreed) burn. You are already in NAPCOMan's scope crosshairs, by the way. Sweet dreams.

Sweet -- Feel free to jump in any time ...

Speaking of high level security events, there is only one ODSS DefCon 8 event currently in the SOP -- NBOH (No Beer On Hand). It's so serious, we don't even drill for it. We've only ever had one event of this magnitude and because of our egregious mismanagement of adult beverages, we were subjected to an attack of killer African bee-hornets, swarmed by amphibious killer death serpents and suffered from intense solar radiation. It was bad. We only narrowly escaped by leaping from cliffs into a torrential river in our heat stroke induced delirium. Our valorous President saved us all from the bees by placing his own body inbetween them and us, allowing our escape, while Marlow and Hambone fought off the snakes (although ... I think Hambone knew one of them ...). It was touch and go. I'm not making this up -- the others will corroborate this. You don't ever want a DefCon 8 event ...

Now now Brother Don. Seems this year you wish to test the boundaries of the ODSS. While you may be aware of other matters that have distracted me from my duties keep in mind as a seasoned, and frankly the only SAA in ODSS history I sir have this fine establishment protected at all times by sworn personnel who do nothing but keep me abreast of any and all situations.

Further, our Attorney General too has a stealth staff documenting any and all infractions to be considered for charges.

I love the enthusiasm and effort Don, keep it up! Just be ready for your fate once within the Old Dominion.

With all due respect Mr. SAA. I have documented proof of my authority, that was vested in me by the ODSS Attorney General.
That title, as Supreme Commander of the Heartland District, also gives me the power of herding LDT Kats, to the ODSS Homecoming.

So I say, bring it on, and all will have to witness whatever punishment that may be deemed fitting.
Punishment will be carried out as a Clothing Optional event!
May your eyes burn with the memory!

Besides, its always easier to ask forgiveness than permission......I guess now I'll probably be burned at the stake along with you but we'll go down in the annals of history and be fondly remembered as the ones who defied the secret combination of the underground.......so do as you wish.

Alvin, you going to make the Homecoming this year?
Martin, I could also use your backup at this overthrow/lynching.

But if the terms of the charges are not delivered in person, by the Attorney General to the SAA, at the Homecoming.
There can not be any charges brought forth. As I seen on the news this week, "They got nothing".
We will also have Tim Pryor as our Concrete Reinforcer.

I would like to report that the original Beaverstick O Discipline/Retribution/Death, though well seasoned, is in perfect working order. A mild soaking for a short period of time should protect if from the ravages of the flames, in the event that total and unequivocated surrender cannot be reached prior to sentencing for high crimes and misdemeanors (real ones in the case before this court).

I agree with proper soaking. It will permit optimum arching during high velocity whipping.

Should the Honorable AG perform said tasks, as your SAA who ultimately answers to Mrs. Mullen; we need to ensure the clothing stays on! There are many things I can get Mrs Mullen to laugh about. Naked Don may be a challenge.

Victor, no need to be scared!
The LDT can handle this out of line administration, with false accusations and charges.
Again, "They got nothing" on me. So bring it on!

Also, since the AG is also almost 4 hours away, he is dubbed a member of the LDT, along with Hambone, should they show up.
Just to show how much Sass I have, I may bring a Pontiac on a trailer, behind a Ford.

I think the gentleman from Mokane is forgetting about what a privilege it is to be an ODSS member. In the ODSS, we use words like "honor", "code", "loyalty". We use these words as the backbone of the ODSS. He uses them as a punchline. We have neither the time nor the inclination to explain ourselves to a man who rises and sleeps under the blanket of inline 6 cylinder exhaust fumes we provide, and then questions the manner in which we provide them. We would rather you just said "thank you", and went on your way (to the beer store) Otherwise, I suggest you pick up an adjustable wrench and stand ready to wrench. Either way, We don't give a darn what you think you are entitled to!😂

BELL?
There are no stinking bells in a bar fight. Just the sound of the ambulance arriving to haul away the fighters.
I may have lost a few teeth, but I'm still in this little scuffle.

Wood stove is fired up and hush puppies will be in the hot oil tonight.
Ribs, baked beans and mashed taters to go with the puppies.

If it were not for the endless deep fried foods elicited by the above mentioned defendant (bribery in nature as it may well be), I would move to bypass a hearing, and sentencing and go straight to the punishment phase. But alas, I am fat and fat requires more fat, therefore I urge that we keep level heads and proceed under normal rules of the ODSS.
I. E. torture to produce a confession, in lieu of the inevitable conclusion of guilt with or without any proof whatsoever.
Bylaws is bylaws, as they say.

I yield the remainder of my time.

Speaking of food. Indiana favorite. Had this for supper last night and the drink is southern ice tea done right. The plate is a full-size dinner plate.

Got one for Tim last year at a local B&G.
He'd never seen one before.

Also got him a Blooming Onion at the Outback Steakhouse.
Never heard of that either or the Restaurant.

Great news TIm. We look forward to seeing you again.
Ya know, your trips over here have been frequent enough that maybe you should have a stateside Stovebolt too! I think I know a guy that will store it for you and then you will have something to drive at Homecoming!

Mike B, if you double celsius and add 32 you can come close as long as it is above zero. Hey, Don, it will be getting close to when I would like to have a decision on a Plymouth. One is right on your path east. It is my second choice, my main ones is near Rusty Rod.
