Portland Trip Pics

Recommended Posts

Here we go!!!  I'll start sending pics when I arrive in San Diego Tuesday mornin to hang out with Ron, Bonkers, Guiseppe, and Lenny for a couple of days before going on to the clusterbusters conference!!  OMG!!!  I'm as excited as a little kid fixin to go to Disney World...lmao!!!!

Kinda worried bout one aspect though......I'm afraid my Colorado KoolAid is gonna get its azz kicked by Ron's micro brewery's "Pure Hoppiness"!!!!  LOL!!!  Plus, I'm such a lightweight when it comes to alcohol anyway.....this'll prolly be one of those "I drink, I get drunk, I fall down.....noooooo problem" experiences!!!

Ya'll be good while I'm away now, ya heah!!!

colorado kool-aid is your favorite eh. something else we have in common. way back years ago dad used to bring some back from out west. at that time it wasn't available here in ohio. the truck mechanic in the shop where dad parked his truck would give him money to bring some back. he kept it in this old greasy fridge from the 50's and that beer was so cold you couldn't hold on to it. all those old truck drivers called it "colodo kool-aid" too.

meeting up with other clusterheads is a real treat. i used to try to meet up with folk out on the road and it was really enjoyable.

hope you have a safe trip and i cant wait to see the pics :)

Hey Johnny,

I actually grew up in Colorado Springs and I remember well when Coors was still just "home" beer!!  BTW, I have pissed in that rocky mountain stream above the old origional brewery in Golden on occasion...lol!!!!

Great cut....hadn't thought about that Paycheck song in a long while!!!!  In the late 70's I had a good friend in Okie City who was the spittin image of Johnny but about a foot taller (he was a little shit).......Larry was out in Vegas one time at a casino where Paycheck was doin a package show.......so he's walkin thru the casino and see's this crowd of people comin his way and it turns out to be Johnnys entourage.........he yells "HEY PAYCHECK".........Johnny looks over at him, does a double take, and then walks over to him, stares at his face then slowly walked around him, got back in front of him and says' Well I'll be F........!!  Larry and his old lady ended up with passes to the show and an invite to his bus for the aftershow party!!!  It was all the dude could talk about for years....lmao!!!

G'mornin ya'll,

Had a great flight to SD and spent an enjoyable afternoon with Ron and

Bonkers!!  Ron as 10 acres bordered on 2 side by Nal't Forest land......he built his house on the peak of a mountain overlooking a canyon with a yearround stream at the bottom....absolutely breathtaking views from the deck!!

Having problems posting pics from here though as his internet connections is via Satelite.....so will probably have to wait til I get to Portland Thurs nite to post the pics......took the most awesome video with my iPhone this morning at daybreak and will try to figure out how to download it to someplace on the net so ya'll can view it as well.

Bonkers is havin a not very good day so will probably have to stay here today while Ron gives me a tour of SD and then to the beach for a while before we hook up with Joe and Lenny at the micro brewery this afternoon.

Hopin maybe I can give Joe some of the vids and pics to post.

More later

Dallas Denny
