    We went up the road to Big Tupper today, it was horrible with huge holes and bumps, I was glad we were in the truck. I hope they can raise some money so they can do repairs.

    Big Tupper was closed for over 10 years, just opened back up about 2 or 3 years ago then last year we had chit for snow so that hurt the bottom line big time. It use to be a nice place to ski.

    Oktoberfest is always celebrated in September. I think the deal was that it traditionally ran for two weeks and ended on the first day of October.


    Oktoberfests are my favorite brew. I try to sample as many different ones as I can each year. This year I started with a 12 pack of Sam Adams October... not great but not bad and its often the first to hit the shelves around here. Then I got some Becks Oktoberfest..getting closer to the source, but Becks is from Bremen, not Munich... or sadly I discovered that as of this year its from St. Louis (wth ??).

    Ahhh.. Then Friday my wife comes home with a 6 pack of Spaten Oktoberfest.... MMMMMMMMM split that one with my Dad when he came over to see his grandkids Sat.


    Someday I'll go to Munich for the real thing... someday....
