    2014 pp GTG - what's your poison?

    I know we have quite a few non drinkers, which is probably a good way to be, but it looks like there are a few that enjoy a sherbet.

    I just realised its time to start calculating what drinks & how many are required for the trip.
    I made a quick stop & picked up my first slab dedicated for the trip.



    Just curious, What's your poison? & how many do you think you need? Any specials on?
    I think $70 for jack black is ok.

    I'm a red lover but I don't know if it's practical for the gtg, so I'll probably see what cans I find the nicest- better do some research!

    Unfortunately guys there are no bins at Talbotville, so cans or mixers are a great way of reducing weight! Hmm that sentence makes, no sense, Ive been drinking heaps of cans lately and putting on weight.. ooh yeh, rubbish to bring out of the campsite! Any way just another consideration! Unfortunately not a lot of tasty beer comes in cans (the old man tells me I've become a beer snob), so time to look at the options, maybe time for some low carb Pure Blonde.... followed by some tasty red rum or JD... or CC...or bourbon....hmmm

    Careful, if you keep calling us Mexicans we may only allow Corona and tequila into the campsite and everyone must have a siesta in the arvo! There's probably a few oldies that'd love that! The siesta that is!

    Corona I can handle but hmmm tequila would get me in too much trouble.
    Siesta in the arvo no thanks too many tracks to drive. Sue on the other hand would probably be keen for a siesta and a good book after all of the excitement on the tracks.

    Usually Tooheys New cans but with space restrictions and the trip length, I'll probably have to throw in a couple straight spirits such as JD, a scotch and/or OP Rum. Don't let me see any J/W Red's around - yuck!

    You can always top up at the Dargo pub. You'll be paying top dollar and not as much choice, but it's only 45 minutes away.

    Yeah I could take casks, but I'll probably just take cans.
