Spring SOBB 2018

Blitzhound - 11-28-2017 at 03:57 PM

Is it too early to start thinking about Spring SOBB?

Wind_dog - 11-28-2017 at 06:40 PM

Never too early.
I think about it every day.

eric67m - 11-28-2017 at 06:58 PM

I was going to say, you stop thinking about kite bugging or SOBB?

Blitzhound - 11-28-2017 at 08:26 PM

Ah...it is always good to hear from my kite family. My real family just does not understand the obsession....and no...I never stop thinking about buggyin or SOBB but when I think about SOBB I start thinking about other things like foosball and the BEST pulled pork EVER! Or what time slot I am going to place my bet on. LOL!

eric67m - 11-28-2017 at 09:25 PM

Agreed, kite buggy family is the best.

I don't get your comment on placing bets on time slots.

sand flea - 11-29-2017 at 05:54 AM

Me too


Glad I'm not the only one...

Morrie Williams - 11-29-2017 at 10:59 AM

Seems like it's been a long winter already, can't wait for spring!

ColinW - 11-29-2017 at 02:57 PM

I miss it too!
Is there any such thing as winter SOBB?
We have had some nice wind up here, but the sideways rain...Lack of daylight is not helping either.
Am I the only one who has googled kitebuggy Mexico?

eric67m - 11-29-2017 at 03:03 PM

I don't want to think about tent camping during the winter. It's wet enough during the spring and fall.

Phil's property needs to turn to a "members club" and we build a small cabin for all year usage.

ColinW - 11-29-2017 at 03:24 PM

Probably a lake back there right now. Maybe we could tow in a houseboat:)

Blitzhound - 11-29-2017 at 08:43 PM

Have not buggied in the rain yet this year but... I have been going through withdrawals and may have to don the rain gear and put up an LEI. It has been almost a month since my last session. I do not know how you inlanders do it. I got a boat and a camp trailer???? Hahaha!

csa_deadon - 1-8-2018 at 06:20 AM

Did someone say Spring?

Morrie Williams - 1-8-2018 at 12:15 PM

Just talked to Phil and he's looking forward to everyone coming to buggy camp again this year. Porta potties and dumpster will be there.

See everyone soon!

csa_deadon - 1-8-2018 at 02:02 PM

Stock piling potatoes, glow sticks and Aquanet!

Blitzhound - 1-13-2018 at 02:47 AM

So...I plan on being there all week. As of now my plan is to show up on Friday and help set up if it s not already done. I also plan on smoking up some pulled pork again. Does anyone else have a formulated plan yet?

eric67m - 1-13-2018 at 04:02 AM

I believe most of the planning comes from Morrie and Shawn. When fall was over we packed the tents, cooking supplies and many other things into Shawn's utility trailer. I believe they also take care of the " buggy camp donation " fund for Phil and set up the port-a-potty and garbage services. Thank you both and anyone else that is part of the planning.

kiteboyza - 1-24-2018 at 12:08 PM

Wind_dog - 1-29-2018 at 05:11 PM

Badboyza-
Bring some Loonies and Toonies for tide games.
Looking forward to seeing you.

sand flea - 1-29-2018 at 07:44 PM

I still can't believe it!

Meat–river - 1-30-2018 at 08:25 AM

Did someone say Spring SOBB?!

sand flea - 1-30-2018 at 04:21 PM

Sweet....
Meats back!!!


eric67m - 1-31-2018 at 07:37 PM

Awroo (Waroo) is getting excited to go cruise the beach and meet some new friends. It also looks like my daughter Cora may come for the first weekend.

Buggy camp and SOBB can't come quickly enough, but I also have projects to finish before then...

Hmmmmm can't make Ivanpah this year so I might have to come over and do some beach flying.

If you can come up I am sure you won't regret it. I would love to ride with you again.

SOBB is a real great event with a whole crew of fantastic folks. Buggy camp is a pretty special experience. Dry camping with many shared meals and crazy times every night. Just by donation. Lots of choices of hotels and such if you don"t want to camp.

Sunset beach is huge. 18 miles from seaside to the ship wreck and beyond! In many ways I prefer SOBB over IBX .

I am thrilled I can probably swing SOBB this year but am still bummed to miss IBX.

eric67m - 4-26-2018 at 12:53 PM

It looks like we are officially one month out from spring SOBB. I am getting excited. How is everyone else doing? Who all is able to attend and who cannot?

sand flea - 4-26-2018 at 03:43 PM

I'm all over it too Eric
I put my vacation request (notice) in today
And called Sean to remind him, since he forgot awhile ago.
I'll be at buggy camp Saturday to Saturday
What's your schedule Eric

So glad Blade runner is coming
Come on Woody! It's awesome!!!

eric67m - 4-26-2018 at 04:17 PM

My daughter and I will be coming down Friday. I'm not sure at this point if it will be earlier in the day or late in the evening.

Wind_dog - 4-26-2018 at 08:44 PM

I will be there for an extended stay.
Can't wait.

I will be there in spirit, but sadly, not in the flesh! Too close to IBX for me and that is pretty locked down in my calendar of life at this point. Your Fall event perhaps? Stuff dreams are made of! Have a wonderful time.

Morrie Williams - 4-27-2018 at 07:01 AM

Here's the countdown to Spring SOBB 2018:

No it won't be. I will be arriving mid-afternoon Friday the 25th.

When will you be leaving the "Great White North" ?

kiteboyza - 5-10-2018 at 10:09 AM

I will arrive afternoon/evening 25th

sand flea - 5-11-2018 at 08:54 AM

The beach entrance at Sunset is in excellent condition
Like a parking lot!

I hope it's smooth like a parking lot and not packed with cars like a parking lot.

Great clamming tides!

Morrie Williams - 5-14-2018 at 05:29 PM

Spaghetti feed Saturday night, who's going to attend?

Wind_dog - 5-14-2018 at 05:32 PM

I'm planning on it!

Morrie Williams - 5-14-2018 at 05:34 PM

Gail too? You still drinking that IPA?

Wind_dog - 5-14-2018 at 05:39 PM

It will be just me and Lucy at first.
If we are lucky, Gayle will come later in the week.

eric67m - 5-14-2018 at 05:45 PM

I'll be there either with my daughter OR my dog, but not both at the same time...

ColinW - 5-15-2018 at 07:47 AM

Thanks for the tide chart Morrie!
Really low tides, but looks like we'll have to get up early.
I'm trying to be there for Saturday evening, but don't count on me for psketti, I don't eat like a regular human anymore anyway.

Wind_dog - 5-15-2018 at 08:05 AM

Spectacular Sunset Sessions after clam feeds.
Win - Win
It's all good.


kiteboyza - 5-15-2018 at 11:07 AM

I will take part in the spaghetti feed, anything need from Canada?

eric67m - 5-15-2018 at 08:43 PM

I throw out an option of selling or trading done of my early and less frequently used kites. I have a collection of mainly 5M's. If anyone is interested that is going to be at SOBB, let me know. Not looking to ship.

Radsails Aztec backpack with speakers (and a 5M kite) (only flown a couple of handful of times)
Pansh sprint 5M K.O.
Quad Trac 5M (flies "slightly pregnant") K.O.
Quad Trac 7M, K.O.

Not looking for much. They just need a new home.

sand flea - 5-16-2018 at 03:44 AM

See you all Saturday morning

sand flea - 5-18-2018 at 07:31 PM

I'm gonna go warm up sunset tomorrow for SOBB
Maybe I'll see ya

sand flea - 5-19-2018 at 05:07 PM

Yup
It was extremely good
WNW 10 to 12
And I went clamming in the morning

eric67m - 5-19-2018 at 06:57 PM

Cannot wait for next weekend.

I heard that blitzhound will not be able to attend. He will be missed. I think his company should give him some time offs and fly him over from where he is to attend.
Maybe if he explains how important SOBB is...

I will be firing up my smoker and cooking some smoked, pulled pork to bring.

See you all there.

Janie and I will be there for sure!

MotoFoo86 - 5-20-2018 at 01:46 PM

Looks as though I'll finally make a sobb, only for a couple days however. Any recommendations?

What can I bring to help out!

eric67m - 5-20-2018 at 01:46 PM

I'll be bringing pulled pork sliders for the first Sunday.

No thanks needed. Everybody gives a bit here and there to always make it "the best SOBB ever". I love it and am glad that I can attend.

Sadly. I won't be at Spring SOBB. I'm still on the ship and we are already on our way back to The other side of the world. Eric did you not get the email I sent you? Glad to see someone keeping the pulled pork rolling at SOBB. I hope you all have the best SOBB EVER! If only so that we can top it in the fall when I can join in on the festivities! I will definitely miss you all! Have fun stay safe and I'll try to send you guys some sweet onshore wind next week.

RonH - 5-24-2018 at 12:07 PM

Hope you all get to stomp a foot on the jetty and dip a tire in the river:thumbup:

I miss those long runs with sandflea...

Hell yeah Brother! Lookin good. Rock it!

eric67m - 5-28-2018 at 07:29 AM

Deter took a bunch of pictures and posted them on a Facebook page. I did improvised triplets rides, and the dog only accidentally got run over once when jumping down...

Last weekend seems so long ago. I was eating delicious French toast at buggy camp. I had lots of fun. See you all in fall, if not before.

eric67m - 6-11-2018 at 06:53 PM

A couple of pictures. Is it ok to post pictures of other people? Is anyone hiding from "the man"?
