Walshy – That sucks man! Hmmm, August??? Alaska is great in Summer… If you can find a good airfare, a pub crawl in Ireland & Scotland would be really cool!

I am not yet certain of the exact "itinerary", etc… However, we plan to meet Eurotrippers at the Augustiner tent entrance on Weds. morning @ 1130 (9/28), and again in the evening at the WeinZelt on Thurs. evening, approx. 8pm (9/29)… I plan to close the Weinzelt Thursday & Friday nite!

Well, you cannot miss me at the Weinzelt,, that’s for certain!! I am the big goof, standing behind the outside bar till closing time, with my friends (Oman & Sabina) working it… That is, if they keep it open this year again.. Luvbeers said they did not have the outside open late (till 1am) in 2004… That definately concerns me.

Chris: Alot of the chatters in years past have been American’s & Aussies… Not sure why some of the Aussies haven’t returned, but many Americans are a bit short on money in recent months… Gas prices are getting pretty bad, and real estate has sky-rocketed! So, they may not have the extra beans to make it to Munchen in 2005…
