Preliminary practice picnic post

Somehow I always find Greg’s challenges confusing.  Inspired, but confusing.  But then, I get confused easily – that’s a problem with having a fossilized brain, I guess.

So are we supposed to complete three posts this month to get a passing grade?  And are they supposed to be spaced out with one in each ten day interval, and submitted in the correct order?  And will they be graded individually or as a whole?  I’d so like to get straight A’s this month.

Just to test the waters, here’s a preliminary post – wrong month still, and out of sequence – but it’s just for practice so I’ll be ready when the real challenge comes around.  This one is for the third category, dining outdoors.  We’re having a picnic on Crown Point, about to cross the state line from New York to Vermont, on our ride to Middlebury.  if we’d gotten the timing right, it seems like a Grade A submission.  We’re outdoors, we’re preparing our own food (we have a jar of peanut butter and are spreading it on our bagels all by ourselves – about as far into the culinary arts as Team Anderson ever ventures), and there are even bikes in the photo!

This is just a placeholder for now. I’ll add a real description when I get more time.

    Hi Scott,
    This is my understanding of the challenge: And I quote from the Czar his-own-self . . . .

    “More good news. All that stuff above is optional. You can do any one of them or none of them. You can post anything you want that is related to food. Grocery stores, recipes, food pareidolias in clouds, personal stories related to food . . . whatever you want. And none of your reports will be graded by me or any other fake teacher. All I ask is that you please try to include your bicycle whenever possible. Thank you.”

    And besides that, Its August 1st somewhere. 🙂

    Also — go back and read my comment at the bottom of Greg’s initial challenge announcement for this month. I had many of the same questions. He has cleared it up the best he can so not — I THINK I get it.

      I think Scott has already read those comments and now that joker is just trying to get me riled up.

    Good job setting up the picnic Rocky. Now could you please explain the challenge to Scott?
