Laugh Snow Camp, version 2014 ~ Jan. 17-20



So, from the Horses Mouth, so to speak here is the rundown for this years event!!

18th Annual Snowcamp

Winter is approaching, and it’s once again time to make plans for the annual Snowcamp. It will take place over the Martin Luther King Holiday weekend, January 17-20, 2014. The location again is the Sahara Creek Horse Camp, a Washington State DNR property. It is located about 5 miles from Elbe, WA on SR 706, on the way to Ashford and Mt. Rainier. There is a SMALL sign located at the entrance, which is on the left, about 100 feet beyond Milepost 5 (the milepost is on the right side of the road) on SR 706.

As in the past, the event itself is free. However, a Discover Pass is now required for motor vehicle access to Washington state parks and DNR facilities (the Horse Camp, as noted above, is a Washington DNR facility). The annual pass is $30; a one-day pass is $10. The annual pass is now good for 2 vehicles.

Our experience indicates that sometimes during the weekend the passes will be checked. Since the penalty for not having one is $99 we highly recommend getting one if you plan to attend.

Discover passes may be purchased online at www.discoverpass.wa.gov, by phone 866-320-9933, or in person at fishing and hunting license vendors and manned state parks offices (transaction and dealer fees will also apply).

OK, so much for the bad news.

If you are not familiar with the event, we bill it as “a chance to be cold and miserable with like-minded fools”. It’s basically a winter motorcycle campout, but we don’t care if you come by motorcycle, car, or RV. A Friday night chili feed is provided, as are pancakes for breakfast. You’re on your own for other meals, but in reality the event is a giant potluck and an epicurean delight. To date no one has either starved or frozen to death, so make plans to join us for the 17th annual iteration of this great event.

If you can, bring some firewood. We like BIG fires.

For more information contact Rolf Gabbe (rolfgabbe@yahoo.com, or 253-770-3749).

Bad News: Due to the government shutdown and curtailment of NSF research funds. I will not be spending the season in Antarctica as planned.

Good News: Despite missing the Fungal for my Antarctic pre-deployment training. Looks like I'll be around for Snow Camp!

I will if you will,,!!

when's the last time we rode onna trip together?,,,I miss them days,,and the sweetie that we put out front on most rides,,Oh no,, I insist,,Ladies first!
I was just looking at some old pics last nite, and found a pic of the day we met you in the shade beside the road,,when Sectors bike was falling apart after coming off the Steens loop,,,Snow camp,,not so much, you know cold weather and my hands DO NOT GET ALONG!,,so ,,excuses, excuses,,My Dad said "excuses are like assholes, everybody seems to have one, and they all seem to stink!"
Did you ride today?
I didn't. I sat on my "rickety old ass" and ate food and watched old movies all danged day,,fuck the chores!

The trick for getting me to ride to snowcamp would be to catch me really early in the morning,,really drunk, and convince me that riding into the snow is an adventure,,but then, I'd sober up halfway there, and pee on the highway!

This sounds like it could be painful and fun. Mind if I show up? I'll leave the dog at home and bring some wood...and whiskey.

Yeah, it's kinda weird when you can see your hand pull the clutch lever, but can't feel it. Renaud syndrome, both hands. Not as spooky as not being able to tell if the other hand is gonna operate the brake properly,,,,I kinda don't like that,,
