Hot Desert Nights

On Friday, August 9th 2019 the SS Food Truck staff met up with Kim’s Got Smoke BBQ in Union Gap to convoy to Desert-Aire to vend at Hot Desert Nights. We used our F350 with camper for our booth supplies and pulled Kim’s Got Smoke BBQ generator trailer.

Once at the Desert-Aire Park, we set up two pop-ups tied to the F350 for the SS Food Truck booth. This was a very nice park with some cool toys you don’t see these days. The kids enjoyed playing until dark.

Around midnight the wind picked up and broke one of the pop-ups loose. We got up and untied that pop-up from the other. With the high winds pushing the pop-up in the air like a parachute, we had to fight it to get it on the ground so it did not pull the other pop-up with it. Around 1:30 AM we had everything moved in the second pop-up and secure.

Saturday morning we had to re-setup the SS Food Truck Booth. Other vendors came and setup too.

The Car show started at 11 am. There were many cool vehicles including some boats and bicycles.  Around 3:30 pm the rain came in hard. A lot of people took there cars home.

People started coming back after the rain for the party. The live band started a little after 7 pm. The band was great and everyone had fun. We hope to come back to this event next year.

Sunday morning, we packed up and convoyed back to the Yakima area.

On the first weekend of August 2019, the Liberty State Overland Club had Luau camp out at the Graham Family Farm.

It was a weekend of fun for the kids and adults.

The kids were in the pool most of the time and so was our Black Lab, “Shelby”.

Some of the older kids played on Doc’s lawn tractor he is building.

The adults had fun in the Biergarten with food, drink, and music.

There was a birthday party for two of the members.
