Decembers here...Landon turned 4 today...I know I know....hard to believe...

Anyways...let's hear it. WHAT WEEKEND DO YOU WANT for this years event?

Usually we go around the middle of Feb.

Please do not vote for a date unless your are INTENDING to come. It's only fair.

Fire away!

12-01-2009, 10:13 PM
I intend to come, but any date is fine with me.

I am good with any weekend, am looking forward to it. Robbie

12-02-2009, 07:11 AM
Suggestion for a weekend NOT to pick is the one around Valentine's Day - the ladies seem to place great importance on this.

12-02-2009, 06:20 PM
I'm good for any weekend in Feb.

12-02-2009, 09:41 PM
Is the location set?


12-03-2009, 12:32 PM
Its in upstate NY near a toy factory that makes special wooden hobby horses. There are a couple of threads detailing previous ECR's.

Robbie- I hunted with the guy who works a the toy factory yesterday...he was asking if we had picked a date yet. He's looking foward to it.

12-13-2009, 07:24 AM
I think I might beable to make this one, any weekend is as good as the next.

Excellent I would hope after Christmas his end of the assembly will slow a bit. I am so looking forward to the ECR. I got plenty of eight round goodness to share.Take care Robbie

These weekend look good on my end..... Feb 18-21..Feb 25-28.......Dave

12-13-2009, 06:18 PM
Feb 18-21..Feb 25-28 should work for me

12-16-2009, 07:15 AM
Turns out the 18-21 Feb may not be good for me.

12-22-2009, 06:14 AM
Ken, Happy birthday to Landon! He's growing up quick!

Good chance there will be plenty of snow this year especially if you keep it in February!

Merry Christmas to all!

I'm not sayin' this year. I think that's the bad mojo that kept me from coming the last few rondys. I'll just go with what the group decides and then make my decision. My "schedule" won't be decided until the last minute anyway, so I'll wait and see. I surely look forward to camping out with all of you, old friends and new ones too.

Nuther bump...

The weekend of the 27th is not a good one for Johnny and Jerm. They have a wedding to attend.

Can we cross that one off the list?

Woods Walker
01-06-2010, 07:43 PM
Me and two others from past ECR's will come. Just gotta know the date. Also any gear you want to see. Have some new headlamps etc.

01-07-2010, 07:52 AM
Is it looking like sometime in March or is everyone trying to keep it in February??

01-08-2010, 11:39 AM
Im in this year! last year I stopped by to check out the tipis in person and ordered a 4 man as soon as I got home. Any weekend but the 14th.

01-09-2010, 06:38 AM
Anyone here from PAScott, Two elk, Ksnake...?

We have got to nail down this date SOON!

01-09-2010, 07:23 PM
It's been a while....

01-09-2010, 08:46 PM
Anyone have a problem with the weekend of the 6th?

01-09-2010, 10:50 PM
March 6th? I'm not saying nothing....

Anyway, it would be nice if some of people from the original ECR would be able to attend and see them all again! I plan to mark-off from work no matter what date you cider-connoisseurs decide on putting together!And been thinking hard about getting a pair of snow shoes this year or would that be untraditional after attending five rendezvous without them? Any new suggestions on what to bring this year!

01-10-2010, 04:17 PM
do you still hang out on cp forums?

01-10-2010, 09:00 PM
Feb. 6th...

01-10-2010, 10:35 PM
Feb 6 is good for me.

01-11-2010, 11:36 AM

01-12-2010, 07:01 AM

Isnít the 7th Super bowl Sunday?

01-13-2010, 08:40 PM

Dave R? PAScott??...

We gotta get a weekend decided on soon here fellas.

01-14-2010, 08:04 AM
Ken, what is too soon? what is the latest you think would work?

PA Scott
01-14-2010, 08:55 AM
Hey guys!

Looks like I'm out this year. I've got a homicide case pending & Paula has not been well. She had surgery in early December with some nasty complications (multiple pulmonary embolisms). She's going to be OK, and we expect a full recovery, but I've got my hands full for the foreseeable future.

Maybe next year.

PA Scott

01-14-2010, 09:07 AM
PA Scott, Best of Luck to You and Paula! Hope all turns out well!!

Woods Walker
01-14-2010, 09:56 AM
Ok how about the weekend of March 5th. This way everyone has a month to work things out.

01-14-2010, 03:15 PM
Sorry to hear that Scott. I hope your wife gets healed up quick. Good luck, keep us posted.

You will be missed.

I can check with Johnny, but I know a couple of weekends in March aren't too good for him. I'll call him tonight.

01-15-2010, 01:31 PM
So this super bowl is it candlestick or big ball. Its not a problem for me I still like Feb6.

01-15-2010, 03:12 PM
IF Patrick can do the 6th of Feb. I think we've got our weekend.

Johnny can do anything in March after the 6-7th, but that tends to start our mudseason. YUCK. It's WAY easier for me to deal with snow instead of mud for preparation etc.

Robbie- You still OUT for the weekend of the 21'st??...

01-15-2010, 06:04 PM
Ken, My wife has some surgery(foot stuff) sched for 19 Feb. I am guessing it would be in my and the free worlds best interest to be available. Just saying. Robbie

01-15-2010, 06:36 PM
No problem Robbie...just waiting to hear back from Dave R. on the 6th of Feb.

I think it's a go. Patricks' good...I'm good...your good....we are all good...lol...

Time for 'nuther beer...

01-15-2010, 09:05 PM
The 6th it IS!!

Pack your bags, get your tickets...I'll see everyone in three weeks!!

01-17-2010, 05:39 PM
Dang that is a no go for me have a great time guys maybe next year

01-17-2010, 06:00 PM
Sorry Jim...I was hoping you were going to chime in before the date got settled.

Patrick and I were talking the other day about getting a weekend set and sticking to it from now on so that people could plan better.

My apologies for not being more organized.

Woods Walker
01-20-2010, 11:53 PM
The 6th it IS!!

How bad were you hit by the rain?
Did it wipe out most of the snow?


01-26-2010, 06:38 PM

SST's will not be necessary at this time. The forcast is not calling for any big storms either.

I'll keep everyone posted.

Canadian Guy
01-28-2010, 05:21 PM
It looks like I can attend, PM sent Ken.

01-29-2010, 03:16 AM
Recieved..back at ya...

We picked up a couple of inches with yesterdays storms, but still nothing to warrant SST pins.

Dave R.
01-29-2010, 10:48 PM

Looking Forward....Had a nice talk with PAScott....

See ya soon!!!


01-30-2010, 05:51 AM
-12f this AM...

MIGHT be able to drive right on into camp with 4WD. I'll be checking it out tomorrow.

Your post reminded me that I STILL need to give you those coords....my bad. I'll get them to you shortly.

Woods Walker
01-30-2010, 09:39 PM
-12f...Aw that's down right tropical.

02-01-2010, 02:48 PM
Negative on the driving right to camp. Everyone should plan on a mile hike. I'll still have a machine available to haul in gear, so feel free to bring whatever.

Dave R.
02-02-2010, 09:36 AM
Thanks Ken.....lookin' like I'll be at the parking area early evening.....6-7pm Thursday.....over.

02-02-2010, 06:58 PM
...by parking area...I mean the log landing that is roughly 1/2 mile off the blacktop road...It's where we parked for the first ever ECR for those that were can recall.

IF you have a car or other 2wd vehicle I'll have to have you park in the normal sopt at the road.

02-03-2010, 02:33 PM
Heading out to grab Patrick in a bit.

Anyone else going to be around Thursday?

Dave R.
02-03-2010, 07:43 PM
Ken....GJZ Greg and I are coming up together.....see you in camp early eve...maybe 7ish?

Any snow on the ground for pulling a sled??

02-03-2010, 09:48 PM
There is enough snow for pulking Dave. You'll be set.

Dave R.
02-04-2010, 09:29 AM

02-05-2010, 04:00 AM
