    Default Sister Summer Solstice Run and campout

    It is that time again and i have gotten to planning it a little later than the last few years.

    The weekend coincides with a food, beer, and wine festival that is down the street from the campground. The dates are tentatively set for 6/15-6/17. That is Friday through Sunday. This really is a bring what you run and have fun type of deal. Last year it was $12 a sight with 2 tents per sight. So $12 for the weekend if you can stand your neighbor OTW its $24 for some piece/peace and quiet. The showers were free/are free. IF not there is a creek nearby for your pecker shrinking/nipple erecting pleasures while soaping up.
    The fire rings are large and the camp host has always been great about $5 bundles of wood.
    We have had some guessable weather in the past and will continue to due so. Prepare accordingly, and dont whine when it does happen.
    This ride and the event is for the riders and decided by the riders. Please make all suggestions and add to it.
    Friday is roll in and whomever gets there first if its not me settles the spots needed. Friday afternoon is time to stroll and get some Q at Slick's about mid town in Sisters. Saturday is ride day, then back to town mid afternoon to enjoy the festivities at the festival. Saturday night dinner has in the past been somewhere special. Gotta wait and see if that happens OTW the plan will be at Slick's for a Q feast.

    If you have any ?'s, send me pm's. This weekend falls after the rodeo so plenty of rooms should be available for those inclined.

    I'm in again my friends! Looking forward to it. I assume Randy will be there as well. Cabin will be available for dinner, or if anyone needs a dry spot to sleep.

    It has been fun each of the last three years, so am planing to be there again, Sounds like Tony has other commitment for that week end so I will be looking to find others who may come down from up this way, I'll try to remember my ear plugs this year so it won't matter if my tent site is too close to Jason.

    See you all there

    Seems to be a possible smaller than usual turn out than years past. Which is fine. I dont think i will be able to get out of work before 2pm or so. For some reason the big bosses get upset when they hear me roll out any earlier even if i work late to make up for the early cut out.
    Randy and Dave, once again thanks for the use of the cabin on Saturday night for dinner.

    Thanks for organizing this again, Jason! I'm hoping to make it, but my son graduates HS (fingers crossed!) on the 18th, so I might be out another year. But if I can make it, it will be rain or shine; no whine.

    We're having the grad party that weekend, so looks like I'll remain 1 for 5 (it is 5, right?).

    Hey Jason,

    I'm hoping to be there on Saturday. I have a ton going on that Friday and can't peel away from the family responsibilities. Hope to see you all around lunch time on Saturday.

    I cant make any promise's that we will be there but just ask the camp host where we are at. We will be back soon enough to make the walk over to the little festival and start Saturday off right after riding.

    I may not be attending at all this year.
    My employer decided to cut me loose with absolutely no explanation as to why last Wednesday.
    I am trying to hustle and get a job quickly. So if anyone knows of anything to make some cash between here and then let me know.

    You gotta go.
    I will toss in your camp fees if that will help. If something happens that I cannot go, I will send you a check. Or help out where I can.
    Just gas and food is all you need.

    As of now, the date looks good for me.

    That is a nice offer but i need to see what happens the next few weeks.
    Hopefully they realized that whatever i did was not worth losing me in the first place.

    Chit guys.
    I appreciate the out pouring of generosity but i cant rely on others to make a w/end trip financially feasible.

    Hobbs, we can meet somewhere else for a beer. If you can make it out i have 2 beer tickets that need to be used there by today. I will be there sometime after 6pm so swing by if you can.

    Now if you know where a guy find a job, that is all i need, really.

    I'd have been there today Jason but I'm still working nights Sat thru Wed.

    BTW: I had an awesome ride to Sisters last Thursday
    I defiantly recommend the Three Creeks PUB just outside of town; had the Italian Grinder sandwich mmmm.

    Alright J. Here's the deal. Since this has been your run from the beginning and it sounds like there are people who are willing to pitch in and make this run possible for you I don't see how you can not show. Besides, what the hell else are you going to do if you don't have a job. Scrape up enough for fuel to get there and I know the rest of us can get you fed and home. And who else is going to cook on Sat night? Sucks that Rogue human resources seems to be a bit bi-polar when it comes to personnel retention. I know you'll come through this, and in the mean time let you "X" brothers extend a hand. Thats what family is for. On another note, looks like there will be at least 5 coming over in my group, maybe 6. Now, if we can just get some weather......
