I don't have the patience to be a beer connoisseur. I like to drink fast and get to the point. Every time I go to a beer festival, I drink a lot, eat even more, and I'm usually ready to pass out within 2-3 hours of when I got there. and I never remember the music except they were all amazing

I'm FAR from a beer connoisseur, I use it as an excuse to hang out with friends in 70 degree august weather wandering around drinking. I could really care less about the beer and music. The thing that's nice is you can find a beer you like, once you do, you can stick to it. That's typically what I do. I try all the ones that sound like they should be good to me and then I hang out at that one and drink till the mission is accomplished. I only drink a couple times a year so...

Yeah, more about the experience for me with events like that.

I drink alot of beer at home, and out at bars, but it's to enjoy the beer, I like trying new things in general (beer and food especially), so its just pleasurable.

maybe 1 out of 10 times i drink is my intent to get a buzz.

I probably only get drunkity drunk drunk ("oh god, why did i drink so much last night" drunk) 4 times a year.

As Khris said, it's fun to just chill with friends and people.

LOL, see we're opposite... I basically don't drink hardly at all. Maybe once a month if that. Before my seattle trip I think the last alcohol I had was possibly aces and ales with you as an idea of how little I drink. Typically when I drink it's all or nothing. I don't drink typically for flavor, there's other things I like the taste of better so if I'm not drinking for flavor, the other reason would be... LOL I'm typically in the twice a year drunkity drunk drunk range and beerfest in mammoth will definitely be one of those two times. The other was up in Seattle so basically that's likely to be my 2013 alcohol consumption for the most part. LOL

Pretty much, I'm scared that if I drink a lot, I might end up intoxicated when the zombies come and that wouldn't be very smart so I try to be prepared for zombies by staying sober most the time.

New foods though, I'm always down to try new eats!

need these couches gone. $100 if you want em. Nothing wrong with them, but they were white and hard to keep clean so we put slip covers on them. The slip covers cost like $300 alone.

Not sure if we'll have much time for exploring. We've got 2 day tickets so I'll be going up friday night, doing the beerfest both sat and sun and then driving home Monday. I'll be taking the explorer but not sure if we'll have time to take it out. I've got two close friends that both live up there and know the area trails very well.

Does anyone have any first hand experience on the rubicon trail? Planning on running it from the tahoe side, and want to know if its possible to make it through in one, long day? is it a two day or longer with camping required? I think I read somewhere that its possible to make it through in one day if run mid-week.

I haven't been thru it since '03 but if you actually want to enjoy it, plan for 2 days and camping unless it's drastically changed. 1 day would make it way too rushed, way too stressful and if you have any down time due to breaking or a rig that's not setup well you're going to not be having fun at all by the end of the day. Just plan on two from the get go and it'll be way way way more enjoyable. The rubicon is as much about the scenery as it is the trail so why would you want to rush thru it?

Also, both times I've done it, we went opposite direction... We also bypassed the little sluice both times, it was WAY over our vehicle's capabilities...

Backwards is from the tahoe side, right? most people run it west to east, yeah? I figured two days would be the way to go, because I dont want to take unnecessary risks in the name of haste in order to get through. Definitely dont wanna break anything. Will likely take many of the bypasses, just because of that. Going to have to be able to drive home, so cant have any failures. :EEK:

When are you planning on going again? Maybe my son's first trip could be the 'Con.
