    Had a great time, tasty food, cool riding and good people. Thanks Eddie for persistently inviting me every year, glad to be finally able to make it. Luc, your awesome, I wouldn't of had the great ride without you. Thanks for the loan of your bike and good road book. Sorry for the condition of your tires, I owe you!
    Great meeting all the new people and seeing some folks I had not seen in a while.
    Hope can make it next year!

    I'm horrible with names so I apologize for not remembering people's names. We had a great time. This picture pretty much sums it up for us! The lady with the sidecar caught us in action.

    I wondered what that was about. I never sent you an email before so I assumed you were some sort of scammer. :D

    Well that was all super duper. Too many good things to list, but Eddies generosity is right up at the top of the list. A fantastic event as always. Great to see old friends and make new ones. Oskar was loved by all. Well, almost all.

    We were touched by the provision of wedding cake - a real nice surprise. That on top of all the fine food, pickles, BBQ, camp breakfasts - superb.

    Rides in sidecars, mansions masquerading as tents, good coffee, trying to bat Eddies drone down with a stick all helped make it really fun.

    I missed having a motorcycle, but not having to ride it up and down I-35. Next time I'll be back on a bike, but trailering it next time does seem like a really, really good idea.

    Rusty Jug provided fabulous BBQ as usual, the pickles tasty and spicy, the liquid apple PIE! was - well, sweet. Personally I preferred my Dalmore 15 - 15 years in the cask next to the sea breezes of the Moray Firth provides just a touch more character than still warm in the jar from the manufacturer. :D

    Good times, all the time. :thumb

    Eddie, there aren't enough thanks for you, that's a fact.

    The Minnesota contigent was a little sparse this year. Still a great time, though. Thanks again, Eddie and Ann. :thumb

    If we did that we wouldn't have half as much fun, so instead we ate a shitload of BBQ, PIE!, cake, bacon and pickled eggs.

    The porta crapper was a place to steer clear of, to be sure.

    If the people attended had half as good a time as Ann and I did it was a very successful weekend because we had a BLAST!!

    The Minnesota contingent was not as large as it has been in the past, that is true, however the folk from Minnesota are the best of the best. This BBQ happens because of Stuart, Mike and now Jane.

    I want to thank those that left a donation (or send by paypal) to cover some of the costs. That was not necessary but was greatly appreciated, as was the rye whiskey left by the newlyweds. Looking back I probably should have shared that with others but I was being selfish and thought how nice it will be to sip on a cold winters night where in the cabin. I will toast you and your marriage over and over all winter long.

    John, The Pickle Wizard (my neighbor), is not on line but is key to making this work. He is the one that mowed the area where everyone camped and supplied home make pickled eggs, pickles, pork in the crock pot, the incredible stuffed jalapenos (jalapenos from his garden, stuffed with sausage and cheese and rapped with bacon from a pig he raised and butchered a week earlier) and easy drinking moonshine.

    I would also like to thank everyone that spent time cleaning up around the area. You make it for Ann and I to want to do it again next year!

    Rusty Jug, the pit master and family, thank you for the incredible BBQ again. Rusty comes from over an hour and a half away to do the BBQ not because he likes me but because he likes this group!
