Thanksgiving Ride At Charlie's Place (part 2)

In this post I will share some pictures taken around the campfire. This is part 2 of the club's most recent ride, which took place a few weeks ago over Thanksgiving Weekend. We were out at Charlie's Place. Even though the thing that many of us like to do the most is ride our motorcycles / sandrails / quads / whatever toys we have; another favorite pastime is hanging out at night around the campfire visiting with friends and having a good time.

I think it's only proper to begin this post with a picture of The D.O.M. club King and Queen - Dan and Leslie:

Pictured here are Steve and Patty:

And here are Cindy and Diana: I don't remember what Cindy was pouring from that bottle, but we were taking shots of some kind of booze.

Here we have Ron, Matt and . . . . I'm not sure, I'm so sorry, I'm terrible with names. If someone reads this and knows who's pictured in the blue sweatshirt - please let me know. My apologies again.

Here's King Dan again, this time with two of his subjects - Kenny and Butch:

Here's a picture of me and Laura: Some of those pictured above probably thought we weren't going to come out of our warm trailer and hang out in the cold, but we made it. We just had to make sure Nina was asleep first. You know, a little quality family time first.

Let me explain why I’m spinning a Hula Hoop around my neck in the picture below. No, it’s not the effects of consuming alcohol. I’m actually doing a better job of spinning this Hula Hoop around my neck because of the alcohol. You see, earlier in the day we participated in something called a poker run. This is an event where the riders go from one stop to the next and pick up a poker card. After all five cards are picked up, the person with the best hand wins. The person with the worst hand also wins, but less than the best hand person.

This poker run was a lot of fun. And to make it even more fun, the riders had to perform a trick at four of the five stops in order to earn their card. Here is what we had to do: blow up a balloon until it popped, hit a paddle ball 12 times in a row (you know – a rubber ball attached to a wooden paddle with a rubber band), throw bean bags into a coffee cup, and you guessed it, spin a Hula Hoop around your waist (or your neck) five times in a row.

I don’t know about anyone else, but I had a heck of a time spinning that Hula Hoop during the poker run while I was sober. But I had no problem spinning that same Hula Hoop after I had a few. So here I am at the camp fire spinning that hoop ‘round and ‘round:

We'll see you for round 3 of this series in a few days. Thanks for stopping by.

These are some great pics! I hope you and yours had a very Merry Christmas and that 2007 is a good one!
