As would be expected, there was no shortage excellent fare. The main course a whole pork shoulder with two sauce choices:This was also a nominee for Heckawee BBQ of the Year from Mitchell's BBQ in Tamms. Most Heckawee made sandwiches on Big Tom's Homeade Hot Buns:For sides there was feijoada: With a nice helping of collard greens or Big Tom's Homeade Baked Beans: And don't forget the tamales: And for desert Guapo delivered some warm amish pies (apple and pecan) and vanilla ice cream (not pictured): The vino went quick: After dinner, Heckawee was polled for the year-end awards.

So out beyond the Rockies on the Pacific, Coach Magnuson pinned on a number and proved that his time away has been good to him--8th place! Congratulations! He will be racing and recruiting more Heckawee on December 20th. Apparently, cyclocross season never ends in southern California due to the seasons never changing! Heckawee finds this to be an ideal match for the Coach as he never enjoyed the falling leaves or budding trees.
Heckawee still waits for pictures of the Coach in kit so here is another from the state champs:Beef chopping. Three Sox fans went searching for beef sandwiches in Wrigleyville after the State Champs and found a promising location that suited their tastes and desires. They found that looks can be deceiving, especially in Wrigleyville, and what looks to be a good lineup may not make it to June. This beef certainly looks good in the field:But not in jeans. In Wrigleyville, appearances are deceptive. But the fries are alright:
Dude falling on his face.

Molteni's out. Gary's in but pondering the circus of the race he's registered for.
No snow or rain is in the forecast though the temps should be hovering around the freezing mark. So Heckawee wonders whether to build a fire inside the Mystery Machine or if electric ice fishing socks really work. It's eerily quiet. It's serious: The Professor had to share a bottle with the founder, Mullison. Gameface is on.

The Mystery Machine is departing for an overnight out and back to the state champ race this weekend. So far Heckawee should be represented in at least 3 categories. The Coach is still confirming he'll be pinning up the western Heckawee for the first time in two seasons. Sprinkle some dust in your peace pipe and the ash on oatmeal for his good luck and healthy result. The state race is the Heckawee Nationals this year and word is that the Chief turned to the Master Cleanse this week--let's hope the spirits protect Nurse Shirley. Washboard Dave has been frying baked cod while Molteni is on strict diet of Mary Lou's biscuits and gravy. Gary is eating glass and tile. Guapo is MIA after chasing the wild horses.
Spare ribs are on the menu for the year-end pow wow... As well as Gigondas. Official date is still TBA. So far there's a short list for Heckawee ROY:

But the day was too beautiful and the climbs too long and the views too inspiring to stay on track. They traveled in the wrong direction and GPS took over to get them back to Mount Hope in time to meet 60 bikers at a friendly establishment.
Guapo discovered a new friendly species.
Another day without Pittz.
They found the terrain to be fertile and filled with friendly tribes serving fresh moldy cheese and sausage with a array of beers to select. They also found this place to be a pain in the ass to travel around in.
Ah, but they didn't always have stinky wine and cheese and sausage. Sometimes they drank Old Milwaukee and cheeseburgers and wrinkly fries. The elder woman drank Old Style.
Guapo dreamed happy dreams in this new land.
And at the Terrace, beverages were refreshing as the Chief described his thoughts on settling north of the humidity line.
Guapo listened with his best behavior in what seemed to be deep concentration, though he had really just discovered the bratwurst on the grill.Coach led the final journey intent on returning to sandbag the Ronde!

After a few days of discomfort and growth of fluids, an old world surgery took place with a chianti sedatement. First Heckawee Nurse marinated and sucked puss from the blister:
Then began to skin the injury like a chicken leg:Removing the skin unveiled a meaty layer of white meat:
So did Dave learn from his mistake?
