The Flywheelers' shows in January and March were firsts for All Fresh Kitchen. In January, we drove back and forth each day from Lady Lake, Florida, to Ft. Meade, Florida, more than a three hour one-way drive. Our set up was in the "Food Corral," with approximately 10 other vendors. After four days of preparing food for the crowds, we really got to know the other vendors. For folks unfamiliar with vendor life, what we can say is that to date we have never met a fellow vendor who was not willing to help out with setting up, lifting product or equipment, managing traffic during load-in and load-out times, or lending the odd bag of hotdog buns, onions, condiments, or anything else a fellow vendor needed. Vendors are some of the nicest and most helpful folks to work with and around. We experienced bad weather on Wednesday, but the rest of the week was beautiful. We decided to bring the Airstream and camp rather than drive back and forth as we did in January. The campground is sort of a hodgepodge with iffy electric and water hookups. All vehicles relied on the "honeywagen" to pump out their grey and black-water tanks. Our signature dish of Conecuh sausage and fried potatoes and onions were big hits. However, we got off to a slow start owing to problems with our Fire Disc grill's regulator. Thanks to Jim (co-owner), he was able to get us up and running within a few hours, but not after suffering through grilling the sausages on our personal small grill for the Airstream, and cooking up batch after batch of fried potatoes and onions using a very small electric frying pan from the Airstream's kitchen cupboard. Well, we survived, had fun, met lots of great people, and will return in 2018. See a glimpse of a Flywheeler's swap meet below.
