Weekend Reflections

This past weekend I went completely out of my box and went back to my hometown, Bigfork, for Ali's bachelorette party. As nerve wracking as it was for me to prepare myself for a first time visit since 1999, it ended up being a spectacular evening.

It was great to see everyone!

On my four hour drive home I contemplated sharing some of the things that I experienced while up there. Here is my short list of reflections from the visit.
  • Some people change, some people don't change, others get really, really creepy.
  • It is okay to drive after a few drinks as long as you have car seats in your car.
  • It is very helpful for the bartender to let everyone know after bar close how many cops are sitting up at Cennex.
  • Stocking up on bugspray is a good idea. When the bar shares their can of bug spray it is even better.
  • The Timberwolf Inn has kick ass tater tots.
  • There is such a thing as "drinking tournament championship." Only in Bigfork I say!
  • Deer love hanging out on the roads at 2:00 am, and best yet, they love running alongside vehicles NASCAR style.
  • Tall, skinny people wouldn't look so tall if they weren't skinny.
  • It is okay for 21 year olds to drink at the bar, even if the last time you saw them they were 12 years old.
  • Wearing a baseball uniform in a bar where no one knows you is guaranteed to make you popular and even a chance to eat the penis off a cake.
I can't wait for our 10-year reunion next year! :D

Oh man, I got a good laugh out of this one! So glad you came up! Where was the "drinking tournament champion"? I missed that one.

On several banners around Loggers! There were no dates listed just signatures. I wonder if I can join the "league"? :)
