We are going to do that segment again this year. I've got some new Airstream things to show, different from last year, and of course a movie or two. No Animal House this year!....I think we have graduated from our togas!

Silvertwinkie has volunteered for the LCD projector and flamingo-kid1 will let us again use the side of Luna. Luna has just the right amount of oxidation to make a good screen! All we hope is for dry weather.

My favorite movie is Eyes Wide Shut with Nicole Kidman, I'll bring my copy. I bet that will look great on the side of an Airstream.

Chaplain Kent -- Au contraire mon fr&#232;re! I've had some great Capital City Winter Sk&#229;l recently. And New Glarus offers a number of interesting choices! Now then .... didn't Miller alienate many when it shafted a lot of its Milt-famee workers??

g'day mate!

miller?
isn't that aussie beer now?

i like all of the kubrick films....
but 'eyes wide shut' might be a little much for this crowd.
also all the folks walking by from other parts of the campground...
stopped to gander at the airstream theater........including kids.

'2001 a s/o' would be safer but hey....bring 'a clock work orange', 'the shining' and 'dr strangelove' too!

or how about peter sellers movies...or chaplan...or that those other famous guy from the 20-30-40s....you know....

cheers

Sparkling malt beverages then?

The Winter Skal is one of my favorites, though sadly, it's only available in the winter! But much of Capital Brewery's selection can be purchased in Minnesota. Every time I go through WI, I have to bring back a small supply of Spotted Cow. New Glarus does make a lot of interesting brews though. I also like their IPA & Fat Squirrel.

No, please do not confuse the champagne of bottled beers with that blue collared slop, Pabst. Miller is alive and well here in Milwaukee, we can smell it everyday. The South Africans freed it from the clutches of the tobacco interest, Phillip Morris and now it thrives. Even better I can drink it again since I boy cotted Phillip Morris products.

You know that all this stuff is just weak, watered down pale ale. Bring back Hamm's, Glueks, Stite or some of the other 12 per cent beers. Also like Shell's Deer Brand Beer.

From the land of sky blue waaaters. From the land of lofty balsams,---- comes the beer refreshing, Hamm's the beer refreshing.

Never have seen a lofty balsam.

Oh my, memory of childhood vacations in Minnesota, listening to the radio. I hear those Hamm's tom toms beating out the cadence......

Finally! I can post again. Just not via Mozilla.
Thinking about going. My only reservation is keeping the dog locked up all weekend.
Would anybody be interested in camping next to me & devoting some of the space to a dog pen? How big do those collapsible things go?
Chaplain, I think "Eyes Wide Shut" is a perfect choice. Indeed, wasn't it the critically acclaimed sequel to "Animal House"?

Our dog will be with us, though he never makes any noise he also never stops moving. We would be happy to camp next to you and your dog.
I'm going to need to keep my "mouth wide shut" about that movie, I take it tough from my wife about it.

No need to lock up the dog all weekend! We'll be there with two standrad poodles. Those collapsible things are sold as X-pens or exercise pens. Standard size is eight panels of two foot each.... sixteen linear feet
We do overkill with the amount we carry... usually put out about three or four of them clipped together, and change configuration to suit us and the site. We also use thick plastic electric fence stakes, and bungee cord the x-pens to the to the stakes.
If you decide to go that route, remember setting up the pens will be counter intuitive..... you do NOT want them to be rock solid! You want them to be just a little it shakey.... dogs son't trust wiggly stuff and will stay farther away than if they are solid!
And for what it's worth, those X pens come in different heights... I think most of ours are forty two inches!

Defunct Brewhouses

I have been familiar with Glueks being a quality local brew in Minneapolis. Historical rotgut in Minneapolis was Potosi -- $1.99/case of returnables. Potosi, WI, beer was pure swill and tied your stomach into knots -- even after only 1 or 2. It died in 1972. Googling now I see they are engaging in a bit too much nostalgia -- restoring the brewery, etc.

Another Midwest rotgut was Fox Deluxe. On moving to Lake Wobegon country I became familiar with their home company, Cold Spring brewery. Yes, Fox Deluxe was their cheap brand. Cold Spring strong beer had a sticker on the longneck that said "VIM" until the know-it-all feds said you couldn't give intelligence or athletic prowess claims to liquor. Moore deregulayshun eye alwayz sed...

All these brews made Hauenstein seem just okay. Small town breweries have struggled and generally died in this area. Cold Spring is hanging on -- after failing with 'Billy Brew', bottling water did not succeed. But I can confirm a smaller capacity staff is keeping busy -- http://www.gluek.com/

Could I go into a local establishment or store and actually find Glueks fifteen miles up the road from Cold Spring? In this day of quality microbrews I honestly do not think I could... ahhh, the insane success of Ben & Jerry's when local dairies/breweries are dying on the vine.....

Oh yeah, Midwest.... Summer.... The folks between Mpls & Chicago just got pasted with 9-10" of snow in the last 24. Thanks for the efforts Jack!
