If you don't know why you're here or who we are, CONGRATULATIONS! You've just stumbled upon the best thing you might ever become a part of... if you're lucky! E Clampus Vitus is a non-profit, fraternal organization that is dedicated to the preservation and celebration of 1800's gold rush mining history. We accept real male members who are over the age of 21, have a sponsor who is already a member, and wish to appreciate and partake in our traditions and absurdities.
Our clamp-year 6024 Charter Do-Ins was a huge success! Over 240 Clampers from 30 or so different chapters were in attendance, and we had the opportunity to lift the veil of ignorance from the eyes of 11 of our PBC's. We want to give a hearty THANK YOU to Howie Anderson for allowing us to use his property, Alex Tyhurst for keeping his shit together long enough for all this to happen, to Tyler Swift and the JailHouse Pickers for the great live music, and to all the brothers who came from great distances to help us celebrate this momentous occasion.
WHAT SAY THE BRETHEREN?!?!
There have been reports of a sasquatch hiding within this website!
He was last seen trampling on my code, chewing on all the pictures, and messing with our history! It won't be easy, but please help me track down the intruder.
If you help me "capture" the beast, I will reward you handsomely for your help.

Our Dun-Good is currently... Erick Hansen!
This goon really went over the top with his storytelling, handywork, and sense of humor, and the dun-good was an easy choice for how to punish him for all his efforts. Come challenge him, but be warned, he seems more than happy to keep that thing with him forever!
The Dun-good, a Four Georgians tradition, is how we recognize a brother for brown-nosing their way to fame. This badge is awarded for working too hard, sucking up to the Humbug, or just being too good of a clamper. Whenever the holder of the Dun-good is challenged by another brother, if they cannot produce the golden Dun-Good medal, they must supply that brother with a beer of their choosing, or whatever piss-water is available at the time.
