M’lords and Ladies, let me present to you the Summer Lake Slack-Off.
It’s like going to Burning Man, without having to go to Burning Man. From September 3rd through about September 8th the usual suspects will be slacking off at Summer Lake Hot Springs in Paisley, Oregon. What are we going to do while we’re there? Slack off, of course!
- Soak in the hot springs, ** any time you want!
- Put the smack-down on your foes at Mondo Croquet!
- Eat at The Cowboy Dinner Tree! You have two options: a 30oz steak or a whole chicken! http://www.cowboydinnertree.net/
- Shoot off rockets!
- Take a real shower! **
- Head into town for supplies or a meal! **
- Hobnob with exhausted, dusty, sunburnt people returning from Burning Man
- ** unlike Burning Man
Summer Lake Hot Springs is about half-way from Gerlack and the Portland/Seattle areas. Every year a whole bunch of Burners spend a night or two to recover and the place is ready for them. In addition to the hot springs for soaking, they have a large, comfy hippy-ish common building with kitchen for slacking off.
Tent and RV space starts at $25/night. There are a number of comfy cabins and they will book up, so don’t delay if you desire that option. Read more here.
COVID NOTE: I’m writing this in March of 2021. Current predictions are that we should all pretty much be vaccinated by mid-summer, so let’s hope life will have returned to normal. If we still need to take COVID precautions, Summer Lake Hot Springs has lots of room for social distancing.
Get a taste of the Burning Man spirit without all the time, expense and discomfort! Looking for more information, status, updates, rebates, reprobates? Check out the Facebook event and/or contact Lord Peters.
