I was disappointed not to meet-up with Gdrink, Rugger, Shane, and one or two others tis year. Would have been alot easier had I gotten what I was promised. Word of warining, do not go with Edicom in Germany. They sent me a seemingly brand new, working phone. However, there was a PIN # included, which initial programming took no problem. Then, it asked for a second “PUK” number… What the hell is that? It’s almost 2009 folks, just give me a phone, I turn it on, and make a damn call. Anyways, after I guessed incorrectly on this PUK number (which was not given to me) a few times,, the phone died with “SIM Card Rejected” error. Arrgh! Then the guy (Henrik) sends Chris(Luvbeers) a text message to his 28-digit Austrian cell number with the PUK, and instructions to call him back. He did not answer his phone or the return txt msg. I am using TravelCell again, and from now on starting in 2010.

Notwithstanding people not being able to reach me on a previously, and seemingly set-in-stone, working – published well in-advance cell number, things were good. I did manage to hook-up with Ger.ty, Luvbeers, Glenn E., Michael, Peter, Nicole, Chrissy, and a few really cool Brit’s named: Barry, Samantha, and Raul.

Another good time in 2008. I will not be back till 2010, but this will be the 200th Anniversary bash of all bashes!

Ahh, it was another good year but I wasn’t able to find you guys. No worries, there will be more. I could’t reach Sun as well and the call forwarding from my US phone to my rental phone was not working. Next time I will bring 2 tin cans and a string. I too will have to take a break next year but will try to return for 2010. GL to those still sipping beers!

Yes, 2010 will be great. I will be staying at the Bayerischerhof the entire time, and will have a WORKING cell phone! I will have my 2008 photos posted on Havebeerwilltravel.com in about 24 hrs or less.
