Pirtlefest 2016… and 17

Pirtlefest 2016 & 2017 highlights coming at you today.   

.

We believe 2017 made for year 11 of this nonsense, but the memory of its origination is slightly blurry.

.

Pirtlefest 2018 is right around the corner, so no better time than now to dig into the ghosts of Pirtlefest past.

It might also serve you well to check in on your liver and start giving it a few pep-talks.

Perhaps even your off-roaders.

 

Pirtlefest originated all thanks to the Patriarch of the Family, Gary!

His birthday, his idea, his fun.

Let’s just say it has evolved a smidge since its inception, however, the underlying tone still stands.

Family, Friends, and good clean Fun.

.

From horses …

 

.

To Mud…

.

.

.

.

To burying your prized possessions…

 

.

.

To Music…

.

To Family…

.

.

.

.

.

And Friends…

 

.

.

.

One thing is for certain…

.

 

If you aren’t having any kind of fun…

 

.

… we probably aren’t your people.

 

Cheers to Pirtlefest 2018! 

 

The countdown is on…

Pirtlefest

Redneck debauchery at its finest.

slp14

.

What: horse racing, 4wheeler riding, good country living, ice cold beer drinking, bullshitting, moonshine swigging, redneck fun.

Where: Pirtle Ponderosa

When: A Saturday in September – every year.

Why: Why Not?

Each year Pirtlefest evolves, but the common denominator year after year is good old fashion fun with family and friends.

Last year Clint had this harebrained idea to cook the pig in the ground.   His idea of roughing it?

Who knows…  

What I do know is it was quite the process for the guys.   Steps included a giant hole in the ground, multiple rocks buried to trap heat, wood for the fire, Wilbur wrapped in foil, burlap and fencing, machinery to bury the big guy, dirt to cover and hours to cook.

2015 Pig?   Definitely getting cooked in a roaster.  

Let’s just say the smell of that big guy after he was pulled from the ground was enough to run a skunk off.

 Folks come and go during the day as they please.  We are a laid back kinda crowd.

002.

Chilling with friends on a nice fall afternoon?

Yes, please!

How about a little 4-wheeler and dirt bike riding?

Sure!

Golf carts with gun racks are perfectly acceptable as well.

Did you think otherwise?

slp78.

How about a little human fooseball?

slp61

.

Bring your shin guards and competitiveness.

Rules don’t seem to apply with this crowd.

Of course there is always the horse racing, obstacle course maneuvering and sledding.

What kind of party would it be without that kind of fun?

Need to burn past regrets?

Bring it out.  We’ve got ya covered.

But of course– the best part is simply the quality time spent with everyone involved.

Always good conversations, good people and great memories.
