A Trip That Lives in Infamy

Oktoberfest 1993 - A Trip That Has Lived in Infamy


Yes, it was that one trip that started it all. You can read about the genesis of the trip at this link. We were so excited and amazed at everything Oktoberfestian; beer flowing in the streets, sausages a mile long, and pork knuckles in every pot. It made us wonder, "how could we have missed this event"?

As great as that trip was, it took us four more years to try it again. And like before, it was an event to remember. It was so good, it started the biennial tradition that continued for 20+ years. That's right, next year will be the 25th anniversary of the "virgin trip", aka the Stair Diving Olympics.

I have put out the challenge to the original Oktoberfestians to participate in the 25th Anniversary Reunion Tour; Barley Man, Designated Walker, Einfahrt and Psycho. Others may join, but the gauntlet has been set.

Let's see what transpires, and please feel free to comment.
