We have a solution to all our problems!


We have all dreamed of this.  Eat a bretzel,  get a beer.

His body was brewing beer.

A shower head? A set of teeth?

How do you lose these and not know it?

Back in the U.S ... Back in the U.S

Back in the U S of A.

While the Rangs continued their sojourn to Salzburg, the Vozel contingent is almost home. Waiting on flight delay to Cincy.

A great time was had by most, and as usual, there are some classic "not for export" stories. Wish everyone else could have made the trip.

Father/Daughter Oktoberfest is Underway

Chugger/Traci along with Flying Dan/Allison have begun their separate travels to the land of the Golden Nectar. We will all meet up in about 10 hours to begin our unique and memorable excursion.

The trip will be different without some of you, and we wish you could have attended. Nonetheless, a bier will be consumed in your honor.

Prost!

Final list for this years fest?

I need to update the trip website.  Seems to be a few more than on the official list? Whos Michael K?

Oktoberfest Beer

1.  OK. Not. Bad, but maltier than what you get at the fest.
2.  Why team with Bitburger?  They are not even from Munich and they are not at the fest.
3.  It's 🍻 beer


, and sunny by the pool. No complaints.

A lesson in finance.


Approximate price for a Maß this year is 11.70 €
That exchanges to $12.75

A Maß contains approximately 33.8 ounces
A pint at our favorite pub contains 16 ounces
So, a Maß is 2.1 pints

Now, a good pint (not during happy hour) is $6.00
Thus, $6.00 a pint times 2.1 pints per Maß = $12.60

We will be paying a 15¢ premium for all the fun and frivolity. Can't beat that ....




Yes indeed, we are all champions....


Ok, 3 Weeks until departure....

So let's get this show rolling.

While we never overly plan, we do like to have some idea of our activities, and 2019 will be no different. Flying Dan and I, with very little input for others, have discussed the following:

Friday 
After arrival at the Hotel Alfa,head on over to the Wiesn for an early indoctrination.
Early afternoon head to the Viktualienmarkt (weather permitting)
Late afternoon it will be time for the Hofbräuhaus

Saturday
Dachau? Tegernsee?
An evening at Augustiner Keller

Sunday
Kloster Andechs in the morning/lunch time
Hofbräu Tent in the evening

Monday
Something local to München, maybe Englischer Garten (there is a large bier garten there!)
Maybe a final visit to the Wiesn

Come on, provide your thoughts.

14 Years ago......

We were hailing the exchange rate of $1.21 to the Euro.

My how things have improved. As of today, the exchange rate is hovering around $1.08 to the Euro. We all know what that means....

We are practically drinking for free. Prost with a pic from the archives.
