Let the Planning Begin !

I have said in the past (inaccurately of course), that various Oktoberfest visits were my last.  Next year is different, my intent is that 2013 is my final year.  I say "intent" because things can always change.  I'm not a politician; intent means I do not plan to go again.  That doesn't mean I won't if someone makes me "an offer I can't refuse".  

My son Gregory will be joining us next year, so I am figuratively "passing the torch".  He may never go again, but, oh well, I tried.  Also, since this is the 20 year anniversary of our first trip, how could I not go?

[tears on]  I need to maintain my perfect attendance record as the only original Oktoberfestian to attend all events. (Hint: An award would be nice.) [/tears off].  It would be nice to give that same award to Barley Man and Einfahrt, but what do I know?

I know it is early, but let's plan both a nostalgic trip and something new.  Extending our trip to a full week means:

Kloster Andechs?
Eagles Nest and the Salt Mines?
Kloster Weltenberg?
Rothenburg?
Tuna Fish Pizza?

A Slow Death

The wonderful Wiesn is experiencing a slow and agonizing death.  Can't wait to experience it in full bloom next year.
