    The oddest camp meal you've ever had?

I'll get it started: Mine was at one of my first events, was around 14 years old at the time. My uncle cooked and served a surprise, and of...

    Log Cabin in Lodi, Oh

    Recently purchased a few items from them as I like to support local companies. Took them a day to process the order and ship out, which is ok because I'm not going to any events. One item was a handmade spatula that I'm very happy with. Should last years as long as I do my part. Also bought a...
