My Bud Camp

Back in August Casie and I went to Bud Camp, courtesy of Andrew Gayle & Mosaic.  I posted the video but not any of the photos.  You can see all the photos HERE

We took the bus up with the Bud Girls and the whole group of them were really nice and fun.  It was a long ride and our cell phones stopped working about halfway there.  No service near Napanee and it was a race to see which cell company would work when we got to camp.  My Bell phone worked most of the way and I was able to get reception at some places in the camp.

First night was a party, they had a cover band from Quebec that were pretty awesome and we stayed got shuttled back to our bed & breakfast around 2am.  Didn’t get woken up on Saturday until 11am and we missed out on White Water Rafting (but we didn’t care).

We had the choice of staying in one of these cabins – no heat, hydro, bathrooms or at a bed & breakfast offsite.  We chose the bed & breakfast offsite & shared it with Brock & T-Rex (the 1 Love TO guys) and their friend Avery.

I’m clashing all over the place.  Red & pink all weekend.

Me with some babes

It was POURING rain and freezing cold, so we ate breakfast and sat in front of the fire.  Ended up meeting Colin & Troy, who also didn’t make it to rafting.  Colin runs Boonstock, which Hail The Villain played at on their summer tour and Troy is a crazy snowmobiler on Team Thunderstruck.  Ended up spending the day with them and a couple other people who didn’t make it to the activities, keeping dry & warm, drinking and walking around when there was a break in the rain.

This is me & Casie not 4 wheeling in the rain.

We seemed to be a bit of a novelty at the camp.  Non-Bud girls and Non-Winners.  Everyone wanted to take pictures with us.  These guys may or may not have just told us they found a bar close by.

This was our little chipmunk friend outside one of the cabins we hung out in.  He was super friendly and came right up and took nuts out of Troy’s hand.  Casie didn’t really like the chipmunk :)

This is Casie & I not doing Paintball – although we didn’t do the activities we had a blast.  I love doing Bud Camp our way.

And then the Vitamin water silly starts.

Guess who’s feet were cold and wet?

The food at Bud Camp was amazing.  They actually had vegetarian options and I was in heaven.  This was a veggie chili in a bread bowl and it saved my life after a day of drinking.  Eating this is what led to me not having to leave the party early :)

On Saturday night The Arkells played and it was my first time hearing them live.  I got to be up on someone’s shoulders for most of the show until security made us get down.  After the show was a huge fireworks display and then they lit a car on fire.  Crazy.  Everyone was cool at Bud Camp.  There weren’t any fights that I saw/heard of, people were just laughing, dancing and partying.

After the Bud Girls went back to their hotel it turned into an all guys dance party.  It was so hilarious to watch all the jocks try and show each other up.  Guys were doing flips, kartwheels, handstands and ripping off their shirts.  I’ve never seen anything like it and we couldn’t stop watching.  So crazy.

Thanks to Andrew Gayle and everyone at Mosaic & Bud Camp for taking us up there and showing us a great time.  I hope we get to go again next year and I hope we get to go on the Bud Light Cruise!
