Blownstar '09


I just got off the phone with Supergurl and it's on! She has used some of her contacts with the Justice League to acquire a 2000 acre ranch for the drunken festivities writers meet. It is a stone's throw from historic Camp Verde and from what she told me it's a SWEET place. Can you say pool, ranch house and 2000 acres to shoot guns play on, longhorn cattle and other wildlife roaming around and a view from one of the taller hills around! It is crip friendly NO STEPS and the owner of the ranch is gonna hang with us. She has set the date for July 16-19th. Drop your RSVP in the comments and let's get ready to rumble!!!

Any one that is serious about coming e-mail supergurl here. chouchope@gmail.com

SWEET! Hope I can get the time off. I'm already taking time off in June to go to the Sierra's with Pops. I'll let you know as soon as I know.

SuperGurl said...

i misspoke, it's 2000 acres, still bigger than we'll see, but not all that. the big ranch is out by marathon

Walrilla said...

Well, guess I gotta sit this one out. I'll be drivin' back from the land of the Giant Rat(DIsneyworld) that weekend, but upend a few Shiners for me, OK?

H2o said...

I'm there....Whoop...

Holder said...

I'm there, mayhaps with a friend... what type of sleeping arrangements are there? Will it still be the same dinero?
ooh, baby, baby!

SuperGurl said...

200 bucks each person for three nights (guestimating, but it depends on total guests)? you will probably have to sleep with your gf, lot's of queens and kings, but no one sleeps alone at blownstar. remember: all i wanted was a freakin sandwich.

Deadman said...

Sign me up...

H2o said...

Get me some directions to the ranch. Please...

Paul said...

Marathon??!!! Holy shit! Ain't that out there between El Paso, Midland/Odessa, and bumfuck Egypt?

kerrcarto said...

Marathon?? No Camp Verde dude. About ten minutes from Kerrville and about 15 minutes from Bandera.

kerrcarto said...

Deadman..No Shit!? Drag T1g's ass with you. CD tell your boss you died.

Denny said...

I'm there.

SuperGurl said...

walrilla, so sorry man.

deadman, drop me an email to chouchope@gmail.com, please. we will get to signing you up properly.

can't wait!

CharlieDelta said...

My boss just gave me the green light, so I am in! Fuck yeah!

kerrcarto said...

CD....AAAAWWWWWW YEEEEAAAAHHH!

Sorry my fucking phone died on me last night.

CharlieDelta said...

Yeah, I figured that's what happened. Either that or I thought maybe you were tired of listening to my drunken slurred speech. BWAHAHAHA!

Like you were saying though, Paul and I should try to coordinate inbound flight arrivals so we can get there around the same time on Thursday. If I have to sit in the airport bar for a while waiting, I won't be terribly upset...

Omnibus Driver said...

Sign me up. Jeepers, between this and BlogHer the next weekend, I'm gonna be up to my eyeballs in bloggers!

Denny said...

CD - Remember to pace yourself. Drink slower at the airport bar. We don't want you to forget the first night like you did last year.

CharlieDelta said...

Well I suppose someone had to mention it. I was sure it was going to be Paul or kerrcarto though. Heh heh!

Yeah Denny, pace is a good thing. Part of the problem last year was the eight Jack and Cokes I had on an empty stomach on the flight out. I was hammered when the plane touched down and then kerrcarto was feeding me beers on the drive to the spot. THIS year I'm sticking with beer only and will only have enough to calm my nerves on the flight.

Thanks for the reminder though...

Anna said...

July 16th huh?
Is there A/C, LOL

Holder said...

ok, I'm coming, sans the friend. Yay, Leslie! Are there really going to be guns? I got to fire an M16 at Parris Island...

Rob Cooper said...

Are pets allowed?

Deadman said...

Drag T1g's ass with you.I'm working on it!

:oD>

Deadman said...

HEY, will there be any machine guns???

SuperGurl said...

anna, this is Texas. There's AC everywhere. plus a pool. we'll keep you northerners comfortable, i promise.

rob, yes and know. plenty of room for pets, but the owner has lost some to rattle snakes and other dangers.

deadman, i don't know about that. maybe?

Ya'll, if you are serious about coming, please send me a check for $200. since this is my friend's private property there will not be access/maps posted.

The Whited Sepulchre said...

I'd like to be there.

Please send info on deposit, directions, and groceries.

Allen in Fort Worth

Jackie D said...

Will email SuperGurl as instructed...CD & Paul, if you want to fly into DFW, I can play chauffeur.

CharlieDelta said...

Supergurl, do you still have that PayPal account set up? You know I'm good for the dinero. If it's easier for you to have me send you a check/money order I can do that too, but PayPal might be a little quicker. Just a suggestion/stupid question...

JackieD, DFW? Last time I flew into SAT because I was told it was closer. I guess I'll have to email Supergurl and get a map. Your offer is much appreciated...

kerrcarto said...

Google maps dude. San Antonio is about 4 hours closer.

SuperGurl said...

PayPal charges just for using it, just for getting your cash out. it pays you less when people use a credit card. send some dough when you can. we will definitely save a place for you, cd.

CharlieDelta said...

10-4. Shoot me an email with an address to send it to and I'll get right on it. You rock SuperGurl!

Jackie D said...

CD, San Antonio is much closer, but I wanted to give y'all the option as you search. I don't think anyone flies from Paul's area directly to San Antone - and I am one of those people that would rather be in constant motion rather than sitting at an airport waiting on a connection!

H2o said...

Are there any hotels near by? I might be bringing the hubby if he can get off.

SuperGurl said...

bandera is closest. we do have all queen beds though, so ya'll can share a room at the meet if you like.

H2o said...

It looks like I'll be bringing my camper. Deadman has dibs on the sofa and if hubby doesn't make it someone can sleep in the bed with me if they would like.

Nancy said...

'Pup and I would like to be there, how soon do you need the funds. PS: I'll be at blogher with Leslie the following weekend!
