General Plans

Let's start the discussion (for lack of anything better to do today), about our daily plans for this year.

  • Friday
    • As always, off to the Hofbrauhaus.  No better way to get things moving, have our "first" bier, and meet the new Oktoberfestians.  Late night at either Augustiner Keller, Shakespeare's or even the Wies'n.
  • Saturday
    • I believe Kloster Andechs is in order.  We didn't make it last time, and I felt as if I was in pergatory the entire past two years.  We need the religious experience to pay homage to the gods and monks for the glorious elixir.
    • An attempt in the evening at Lowenbrau, Pschorr Bräurosl or Paulaner; or maybe the wine tent.
  • Sunday
    • Late morning through the afternoon at Augustiner Feste Halle
  • Monday
    • Name your poison.  A early trip to the Wies'n?  Another day trip to Weihenstephan?  Englischer Garten?  Viktualienmark?  So many places, so much bier, so little time.
Let the countdown continue.....

Renting a car in Munich

My buddies and I plan on going to Rothenburg ob der Tauber on the Saturday we are there. Should we reserve one in advance and if so is there any place you would recommend? I saw there we quite a few in the area.

I hope this is a good trend !

The dollar is gaining ground on the Euro. This means our bier will be cheaper.

Another Oktoberfestian?

It appears we have another Oktoberfestian joining our ranks this year. While the details have not yet been ironed out, Frau Jane Lynch is planning to join us.

Jane is a veteran from the 2005 "Uber Trip", and will also be joining the pre-trip in Amsterdam; although going significantly earlier than the rest of us. She will be spending more time with Schlumbergerlady, Barbus and the new grandson (and future Oktoberfestian). Travel from Amsterdam to Munchen is still up for discussion. Some think that Jane and Schlumbergerlady travel by car, while Barbus joins the rest of the crew on the train. Only time will tell.

Frau Lynch is looking forward to meeting the "newbies", and we hope she begins to contribute to the blog soon.
