It's Never Too Early to Plan

Well, 2008 is an off year for us routine Oktoberfesters, but I recently had a wild idea. I know, the difference between wild and stupid is a fine line; but please bear with me for a moment.

Next October 11 is Gregory's wedding day, and he has always wanted to go to Oktoberfest. So, I was thinking, maybe a bachelor party in Munich some time in late September. Just a small intimate outing with a few hundred thousand of our closest friends (or 4-5 real friends). I would also make an offer for some of his friends to join, but knowing their state of finances, I wouldn't expect any attendees. Maybe his Best Man/Best Friend since mom and dad seem to pay for almost anything anyway.

So..... would Gregory and I be the only attendees, or is anyone else willing (crazy) ? It's still a thought, but as we know, these trips are all about advanced planning.

Starting the Off-Season Postings

One of the problems with Oktoberfest is it only occurs once a year. Even worse, for our entourage, we only go once every two years. My attempt with this blog will be to encourage year round participation, regardless of whether it is an attendance year or not.

With that said, there might be some special dispensation for next year because of Gregory's wedding. What does that mean? Maybe an off-year trip.

What say the wild ones of the bunch?

Who knows, by then, a beer might be back done to $10.00 a litre.

A Sad Day in Oktoberfest Land

As I watch the dismantling of the tents, I long for that next fresh Mass, which is only 687 days away.
