Another year, another AD offsite

AD third offsite. Endless variety. Different fun. Going from an all day boring, unproductive meeting in some local exotic place, to activity filled afternoon and dinner in famous but expensive landmark, and now a different venue altogether. Well, at least HR and admin are creative. This time, we went to the Long Branch farm in Half Moon Bay. The weather could cooperate a little, but no, it was foggy and cold, and the activities were outdoors. We were given clues to find ingredients for a chili cookout. We found eggs and banana, got some onions but no garlic, so we traded. With a piece of garlic left, we traded for some tabasco sauce and I think that was what made our chili the best tasting, and won us a wooden spoon. R and L spent a good afternoon inventing a story and out came Clint Chiliwood. I contributed 'the good, the bad and the tasty, go ahead and make your day, try our chili'. I quite like out story of Eastwood actor, director and now cook. Learned how to do archery. The feathers had to point a certain way for the arrow to fly straight. Later on, after a so-so BBQ (yes, there was more chili), I opened the poker table by winning the first hand. Hard to say from 3 offsites, which was the best. Last year games at Golden Gate park was more fun. But this year chili cooking wasnt bad. Out in the rural area with hills around and green pastures (although weather was not good), was not bad to spend an afternoon away from the office. Gosh, with 3 offsites, I've been at AD for three and a half years. But I still like it.
