    BeckerWest 2016 Fall Gathering! November 11th, 12th, & 13th.


    This will be the 11th get together here in the great Pacific NorthWest just outside of Eugene, OR.
    Come one, come all! You need not be an official Beckerhead to attend.


    What can you expect when you show up to BeckerWest?

    There will be food, fire, strong drink, contests, and general merriment! Knives, guns, beards...you get the idea.
    There hasn't been an age limit in the past. Just use your best judgment on bringing kids along.
    Most of the attendees will not use a filter.

    Friday- Guests arrive, folks hanging out, setting up camp, a lot of B.S.ing, a fun night around the camp.
    Saturday- Big breakfasts, contests, lot's of food, usually not as rowdy as Friday night.
    Sunday- Breakfast, camp clean up, trash is picked up, and everyone is usually out by Noon.


    "What should I bring?"

    -Bacon
    -Camp stove
    -Food, drink, camp chairs for sure.
    -Tent, hammock, or some form of shelter.
    -Trade items if you want
    -Bring some TP, there are no restrooms.
    -Folding tables and pop-up canopies are always nice to have around.
    -Knives, guns, and gear. Ear and eye protection.
    -Bring whatever you need to spend two nights in the woods.
    -More bacon



    Contests will include,(but are not limited to):

    -Chopping
    -Tomahawk throwing
    -Shooting and/or Slingshot competition
    -Fire making


    Ideas for new challenges are welcomed, as are fresh ideas for the standard contests.



    Rules: Petty simple...

    1. -Absolutely NO guns and booze! If you're drinking, you're not packing.
    2. -NO dogs!
    3. -Take your trash home with you!

    Looking forward to seeing everyone. See you there!

    So I went kinda camping this weekend and we all know one can't camp without Kracken. So I brought some with. This trip was some kinda corporate campout for my mom's company. I only brought 3 shot bottles. I had one and gave the other two to a couple guys I went on a beer run with. I told them it was dangerous, and asked if they've had it before. They both said yes. So here we drink and one guy couldn't finish the shot and the other guy was coughing for a while after he finished. Bahaha!!! They didn't believe how we camp. Haha light weights...

    I'm bringing the Kracken! ;)

    It's the only gathering I know of where a kraken is not only welcome to attend but also encouraged. :)

    Here it is guys. A change based on real life. I call it....


    "The Faller Fire Challenge."


    It's a one handed fire building change. I'll figure out all the rules and reveal them at the gathering. Just know; one handed.

    If I win a sizeable enough prize between now and then, I'll be there.
    the downside to this is, it's hard to win if you don't buy a ticket -- and I hate donating to the "can't do simple math" tax...
