  1. Function in the Junction will be June 21-22, 2019. Mike Cowling, Cynthia Meachum, and Kpro from THOR will come together to reunite, first time since operation Jamie. More details once the WSOF is over, but many are planning and Kpro wanted to get this date out!

    I, Cynthia, have already received numerous emails asking about the dates. So far, all we know is the weekend and it will be held somewhere in West Yellowstone. Hope to see you all there.

  2. Is this to replace the annual “Jamboree?” If not, is there going to be one, and where will it be held.

  3. The Function-in-the-Junction has been cancelled due to Kpro and Mike stepping away.

    I’m still in the Chase but will hopefully retrieve Fenn’s loot before the end of June anyway. Ha ha! I wish.

  4. I suggested last year we call it Function at the Junction for Yellowstone! I could not go last year but I’m thinking this year, if there is any interest. Wish Forrest would show up and give us a walk down memory lane!

    • If Forrest went I would definitely go as that is an opportunity I wouldn’t miss. His last 6 questions definitely implies that he probably wouldn’t do it though.

      • Technically there is no host but I wouldn’t be surprised if searchers already have reservations. BYOH (Be your own host) Function at the Junction.

        • Not sure when I will visit Montana. I will definitely be in the Cody area in the spring and hope to enjoy a good hike or 2 in YNP while up there. When will you be there?

          • Hi Cynthia
            I think late May or mid June depending on weather. I have a brother in law in Casper he owes me stake for shoveling
            his roof off.Stop there last year and went
            to the Texas Stake House.They have the
            best stakes.I went thru Cody last year
            and came in the park that way left to the
            south by the Tetons all vary pretty country.looks like you all had a good time at the junction last year.Clint

    • Covert One – Sounds like big fun! Thank you for the invitation!

      Listening to a good rain melting the snow here at about 6,000 ft. I am basing my trip date planning on snowmelt and “water high” in my search area. But maybe the STARS will all align?

      I would really like to meet so many searchers I have conversed with in person.

    • Hoping to be at West Yellowstone. I have tentative reservations. My travel plans and budget are never certain. Hope to see everyone.

  5. I am finalizing the exact plans now, but hope to have them up in the next week. Here are the details so far:

    Saturday –
    Morning – Fishing Trip and Forrest has suggested the spot!
    Afternoon – possible trip out to Ojo Caliente
    Evening – Dinner and Driniks (oration TBD)

    Lodging is still available at KOA, Holiday Inn, and a few other places. More to follow. 🙂

  6. I just heard a rumor that Kpro will be taking a small group of folks to see the Home of Brown. Now, that’s a chase community leader!

    Must be present to attend!

  7. Details for the Function in the Junction:
    Friday June 21st and Saturday June 22

    At a Glance:
    Friday Evening Drinks / Informal meet up: At the Holiday Inn – Branch Bar and Casino.

    Saturday Day Excursion: Either fishing trip or Ojo Caliente day hike (depends on interest, email me at if you are attending and which you prefer, so we can make a choice).

    Saturday Dinner 6:00pm – Bullwinkles (previously the Totem Café) – we may move over to the Buffalo Bar after dinner – depending on interest.

    Possible Places to Stay: Book now!!!!! These are available but spots are becoming limited and selling out fast.
    Holiday Inn, $293
    KOA – $108
    Travelodge – $199

    We would like to get a rough number attending, for a few things we are planning as well as for reserving spots at the venues for meet ups. Email with number attending. If you do not RSVP, you may not be included in some of the fun!!!

    Cynthia will be in attendance and bring the TTOTC book that Forrest has donated to Fennboree! She is asking everyone to sign it (with your handle on the page you know there is a super secret hint!) 🙂

    We are working on some other fun things, but shhhhhhhh……. Not ready to roll that out yet 🙂

    • Cynthia – You wrote, “fun things” and “roll that out”. Are you considering having a log rolling contest at Forrest’s old swimming hole? Baker’S Hole? Forrest did suggest kids should turn over a log. And isn’t that Father’s Day Weekend? Didn’t Forrest camp with his father, William, in the Airstream there?

      That was for you, Mark in Taos

    • “There is something about nude-dipping in a mountain stream that awakens the fantasy of unfettered freedom lying restless just below the skin of all dreamers with romantic notions of the past, when life was roomier and less encumbered by the rules of social custom.”

      Why do these events always have to be early in the search season?
      I would like for one to be in August around Fenns birthday and live stream to Fenn the lighting of the cake. Lots of candles would make a nice blaze.

  8. Folks,
    I should have mentioned I am not in charge of this event. Kpro is the organizer, hence her email if you have questions. Plus, she is asking you to email her if you plan to attend. It will help her organize some of the activities if she has a guesstimate on how many will attend each of the events. Hope to see lots of the familiar faces (JDA, this means YOU!) and new ones as well.
