It was interesting to try and barbecue without infravision. You literally could not see anything but blackness - not how brown the steaks were or how ready the bacon was. The photograph does not show that - the camera had a flash. Turned out to be the best damn hamburger I had ever made and I have no idea why. There were 6 burger steaks total, and only 4 were consumed that night. That left 2 to take back home <3
Sowilo beginning to do some burger magicks, while Cyto looks like he is about to zap a mort.
Another pic of Sowilo's evening arsenal, this one shows the burger buns, too. Note that these photographs are illuminated by the camera's flash. It was pitch black in there. I took two photos because it was too dark to aim/focus the camera properly to catch all this within its view.
Having thawed the minced meat for over an hour on the stove to make it possible to spice the proto meat patties properly (thanks whoever moved the 700 grams of minced meat from the fridge to the freezer!), I was itching and bitching for some witching hour burgers.
Saturday morning, after breakfast. Sweltering heat outside. We weren't permitted to be at the sauna building by the lake before 7PM, because there was some sort of communal sauna day? The poor fellow in the back had no fire resistance gear and had to regen against the constant environmental damage ticks.
The "high class lodging fit for royals, embassadors and movie stars." was so well equipped that it also came with a very Modern cutting board. Birch please.
Preparations for smoking the salmon. That was not an euphemism.
There was Free Food around, your favourite! With a name like this, I wasn't the only one expecting more rainbows in the packaging...
The morning after. Bandar had drifted in during the night. Sriel is busy grinding karma. Jared is charging a potential breath weapon in case of random encounters. This is mere moments before elder bums from Graemor stormed the sauna by the beach, provoking the ire of the Groundskeeper, a named prestige monster known as the-37-Seconds Man.
Richter giving Sriel's cups a try. The weather over at the con was mostly hot and humid, with a chance for baldness.
We had an impromptu stealth competition. Sowilo showing the other contestants his shadowdancing skills!

After being submitted to Richter's driving with his music playlist for around 8 hours, arriving to a dark camp with seemingly ghost houses from the 40s, no living souls in sight, this scene was the eerily serene welcome. It was a Friday... but luckily, it wasn't the 13th, despite the definite undying machete-murderer vibes the camping ground was giving me as its first impressions.

Saturday late evening. Weather was so good. Sowilo was making burgers behind the photo and people were playing boardgames indoors.
