Door County Cabin Nerd Party!

  • May 11, 2012 · 5:00 PM
  • This location is shown only to members

My family owns a lakefront cabin in Door County, Wisconsin. Im going next week and will be staying through the weekend. My douchebag friends flaked on me so Im going solo. However, if enough people wanted to get away and let loose I would be more than happy to host a shindig.

Yes, again its in Wisconsin. About a five hour drive from here but it goes fast and its a nice drive along the way for the most part. We own a medium sized cabin with two bedrooms and a small guest house with electricity. One bedroom has only a king sized bed in it, and the other has bunkbeds and another bed with a trundle bed underneath. Both couches in the living room pull out and in the little guest house is a full sized bunk bed. We have slept fifteen pretty comfortably there before. No cable or internet, but I figure if enough people were interested, we could bring some bigger TVs, game systems, and lots of booze and have a screaming good time.

Again, I know its a longshot, but hey I wouldnt want to regret not asking and then having everyone saying "Awwww man that would have been awesome". This way you guys can think about it for thirty seconds and then say "Awwww man that would have been awesome, but we dont know you and for all we know, you are luring us into the woods to chop us up into a million pieces. But at least you asked!"

There are like four fairly expensive tolls on the way (for those without ipass) The exact address is 5777 Bay Shore Drive, Sturgeon Bay, Wi 54235 There is a landline telephone there if anyone needs to give it out for family emergencies and what not. (920)[masked] It looks to get chilly at night next weekend and I dont remember how many blankets there are up there. People in the house will be fine because the heat works great, but for those in the guest house there is only a little space heater and I don't even know if that works well at all. So maybe we can tell some to bring a blanket just in case. And probably pillows for sure. That's about all I can think of at the moment.

    KLAX, Ninja Kids, and Ikaruga combine to make for an amazing weekend. It was awesome to hang out with everyone. Plus, we all survived!

    It went out right before I wanted to go to bed. Just went for a drive to see if it was out everywhere. Like half the peninsula was out. It came back on in an hour or so. Yea I told her that the signal was sketchy for most of the way. It was nice talking to her. She thanked me about a thousand times. You guys are very welcome for everything. I hope we can do it again!

    I just wanted to say thanks to Andrej for driving and thanks to Len for hosting. I don't think that any of us will forget the prophetic words: "It is the nineties and there is time for...KLAX."

    We saw like a total of 5 dead deers and many small animals laying on the side of the road, I presume they were rabbits. But so many are just dying and its completely unnecessary :(.

    Oh no Len! I hope you got power back quickly. Was there anyone you could call? Hope you at least got to finish survivor. Hey, my mom thanks you and says that you just don't know how you relaxed her. (She was worried because my phone was on vibrate so I didn't notice it when she called) oh and a rabbit ran under my car when we were driving, it was SO lucky! It made it to the other side! Poor animals. They seriously need to put up fences to keep them off the street.

    Spending the weekend in a cabin with 7 people I didn't know, hundreds of miles away from home, was a new experience. Everyone respectful, fun, and loved talking about and playing video games. Great people, great food, great games. It was amazing and I am giving it 5 stars because it was an awesome weekend I won't forget. Thanks again for hosting, Len.

    Well, I survived. So it gets five stars on that fact alone.

    Ok so I am bringing pretty much all my 2-4 player games I have for the systems Len mentioned. Ton of fucking games, you guys better play em. Also bringing a N64 controller and 2 WaveBirds.

    Yea I noticed that. Don't know if I have one here. I'll check. No its a 360. I have 2 for that and 3 N64 controllers.

    You can also always use RCA cables (Red, white and yellow) for the NES. I can bring mine since my RF switch is messed up. The little needle that goes in the antenna input of a tv is loose so I just use the RCA cables. Do you have 4 controllers for your N64? Also how many controllers you have for your Xbox? Its the original Xbox right?

    Also. My phone is still being a bastard. Don't know if I want to depend on texts working while I'm at the cabin. Please have the house phone handy in case anyone gets lost. Its in the description.

    Second update, don't think I'm even getting texts at the cabin. Samsung phone radios suck ass. All my Motorola phones texted just fine. This one doesn't. Fuck. Call the cabin number with any pressing questions.

    Update, its beautiful up here right now. Mid 60s no wind, sun shining. I'm gonna check the equipment I brought when I get back to the cabin. See if I need any cables or anything.

    No no no, there will be no coffins. Haven't you guys seen the Friday the 13th films. Our dead bodies will just be hidden somewhere for the other survivors to find so they get the sh*t scared out of them and thrown out of their calmness. Len's got it all planned out. Or is it someone else...dun dun dun. Coffins means respect for the dead. This killer has none of that.

    Axe is already there. Bring your own coffins.

    May 9, 2012

  • The Illusive M.

    Will we have to bring our own coffins? You cheapskate. Or do you already have them for us?
