I did.  :D  And I want to make sure I fit it in with everything else.

Last "summer", I went to the Bun Cooler.  Then joined the ST-Owners for the NEWSTOC over in Eastern Washington.  Another great group of people and fantastic roads.  Then hit the North Cascades Highway a couple times.  Artist Point.  The Longest Day ride.  Went up to the Canadian Rockies.  Then down the Washington, Oregon, California coastline.  Then back up through Zion and Lassen Volcanic National Park, and then sprinkled in there were some local rides. 

And then there was family vacations, like the one to California (twice) and Iceland. 

It all started with the Bun Cooler.  So I need to make sure I get that on the calendar and don't plan anything else for that time.  Besides, when the rain is coming down in November through March...it'll give me something to look forward to.  ;)

I just registered.

The KOA says that they are already full.  :-\  I mentioned that I was with the COG group hoping that someone booked the whole place for the group but she said nope it is all full with individual names.  She offered tent sites.

I then called the Clearwater 12 and they were full.

I reserved a room at the Kamiah Inn.  $64.00 + tax.

I"M IN!!!!

They are invited but life is getting in the way. The youngster is getting married in October so he's saving his money like crazy. I suggested one last ride... we'll see.

I checked with the resort today and they still have cabins left and those who haven't paid a deposit on their room need to make one. There are people who made reservations, some last year at the BC, and they don't know who is coming and who is not. There are people who made reservations that haven't registered for the BC so get your deposit made and register. Those who made reservations somewhere else can still cancel those and join all the fun kids at the LC resort.

Awh looks like I will be calling for a cabin as soon as this post is finished. Thanks Jim...
I thought I would be staying at the same place I did last year, it was very nice but a couple miles from the resort and spendy. My good friend will be tagging along on his Harley this year so a cabin will be good...

FWIW-

Although I don't post here much, I have remained a member lo these many years since my Connie's sale.

And after much harassment, belittling, non-stop insults and threats of violence, by the Old Man, I have been convinced to attend the Bun Cooler.

Not that anyone gives a shit, of course...but....

I got the last cabin.

So...if someone needs a bed I’ll be accepting bribes, payoffs, livestock, a new set of specifically sized Michelin PR4’s…

bring your bargaining skills to the table.




I’m not to be trifled with.

The resort called me and said they are out of rooms, but if people want to camp in one of the large halls they can let you do that for $20-25. I'm guessing you can use the pool bathroom. Give them a call if you are interested.

Monday, the 6th, is the last day to register for the Bun Cooler and get a meal. I have to let the guy cooking for the banquet our count so he can get food ordered. So those who haven't registered yet need to get it done and those sitting on the fence need to get off.

The weatherman says good weather.

We haven't had bad weather at the Bun Cooler since I have been hosting it. I can't be responsible for the weather getting here or home again.

Jim I can remember rain ay least once if not twice. I was at the Bun Cooler one year and don't remember which. I was in the Café having breakfast and it was raining. Not real hard but still. As I was sipping my coffee, I watched two guys leave there restaurant and head towards the rooms. One walked, and the other ran. In my mind I asked thought, "Hmm, I wonder which one is from Seattle." I continued with the coffee because no one seemed to be in a big hurry. I don't remember what the group did on that rainy day, but it must have been OK because I came back the following year.

That was the year most of us hung out under the second floor walkway and had an awesome bench racing session.  To Jim's benefit, I think that was the last year Mike Curtiss was host.  It was also one of my favorite Bun Coolers, because we actually got to spend a lot of time getting to know each other.

Our 1st time out myself and the counterweight showed up on Friday and left on Sat in a pouring rain (we won't talk about the old dude in his tighty whities in the morn on his cabin porch). Did lolo all the way to Yellowstone in liquid sunshine. Had my a$$ handed to me a couple times on the way in and out. Hey, It's called the Bun Cooler for a reason. And there is a reason why it is the oldest rally in COG. Come prepared or suffer. It Don't Get No Mo betta.  :beerchug: ;) :great:

I believe it was my first BC and it poured the while weekend. Went riding anyway and loved the heck out of it!

That rainy day was the last time Mike hosted the BC. I only guarantee nice days at the BC. You are on your own getting here and getting home.

Charlie is right about the nice time we had with everyone under the balcony drinking beer and bench racing. Some still went riding. I figured they must be from Seattle because that would have been a nice day for them.

Don't forget to let me know if you are coming to our BBQ on Thurs. evening. I might have to run over another raccoon to have enough for everyone.

Today is the last day to register and get a meal. You can still register to ride and might get leftovers for dinner.

They are doing a lot of construction on the intersection in Lewiston where you cross the Clearwater River on Hwy 12. If you are coming from the west you will want to turn coming into Clarkston over the Redwolf bridge. Then turn right on 128 and you will miss that construction mess.

Glena is making nametags and there are a number of people that don't list where they are from. If you don't have a profile in the COG membership book, have a guest, or aren't a member, she needs you to post where you are from in this forum or PM us. You get no cookies if you don't cooperate with her. :)

Long story, short. I had been planning on riding out with a couple guys from my area. A camp and ride.  But not going to happen. So I will be bringing my wife out. I do have a campsite reserved, and will use if required.
But if for what ever reason, someone cannot attend, I would take their room off of their hands. I know I am bring this up very late.
Thanks

You can register that day, but we can't guarantee there will be food. We can check with the caterer and see if they have enough food that morning. We wouldn't charge you for the food if there isn't enough.

I think "looking for a roomie" puts an unnecessarily positive spin on the fact that I have an extra bed whose comfort I will grant to the survivor of a post-barbecue, all hands, fight-to-the-death.

Let's be clear about these things.
