A Request for BarleyMan

Please post the picture (assuming you still have it) that started it all. What am I talking about, you ask. All of us on the small train, in our coveralls, during the 1993 Salt Mine tour.

Cannot find my copy.

What is this year's theme?

Remembrance trip:
Relive the glory day trips and Munchen activities.

New adventures trip:
Concentrate on something never before attempted.

Farewell tour:
A nostalgic look back, not expecting to return in 2011.

In Retrospect III.....

Name your favorite Overall Trip. Which year and why?

I'll start....

I must admit, my favorite trip was the first, 1993. Not that the others were uneventful, but 1993 was unique. Being the first trip, we didn't know what to expect, we didn't know our limits, and we were all virgins. Well, sort of. I had attended Oktoberfest in 1987, but only as a day trip from Augsburg. We found new excitement, new activities, and set the benchmark for future trips.

1993 was certainly a ground breaker and foundation for the future. How do you top that?

Current Oktoberfesters - Revised

We have had our first casualty. Rod and Debbie G. are now just Rod. Long story, but please treat RodG as one of own own, even though he will be our token virgin on this trip.

Prost RodG !

Happy New Year ! !

Or is it Gutes Neues Jahr !

Now we no longer need to say "next year" when referencing our upcoming trip.

Hope everyone's holidays were great. Now get busy posting.
