Shit, and Wacken 05 was 10! :thud:

My Wackens got better each year, even if the lineup started dipping in 08, that was my favourite. And messiest, booze-wise.

Yep, that was the one. Really did make a silly amount of new friends there.

Just went to Co-op to get me a beer and they had Franziskaner. Seemed pretty apt so thought, what the hey.

I can't stand wheat beer. I think we bought some Strongbow from the shop. When you're options are mead (which I don't like), 5,0 (one of the worst beers in Germany), Becks (one of the worst beers in Germany) our choices of Strongbow and Creme De Menthe weren't all that bad. Plus we played bowling using the empties as skittles.

It's a little hard going and making me feel a tad melancholic. Might be better cold? I'm just drinking it for nostalgia right now.

I remember we went all the way to that shop and bought Becks to find it was non-alcoholic. Think the only purpose it serves was so I had a 'beer' in my hand when hanging like shit from drinking a whole bottle of Jager and violently spewing everywhere on the first night.

One of our lot did the same and came back with Bitburger alcohol free. :lol:

I still don't know why we even bought Creme De Menthe. I can only imagine we forgot to bring toothpaste so we used that instead.

Kind of thought I'd have more time to train for my charity cycle ride, but it's only in 5 weeks, and I'm still recovering from the fall I took a few weeks ago so can't push too hard at the moment. It's only 45 miles, just with festival season and not being able to do much exercise at the moment I'm worried I won't be in shape for it. Starting to regret signing up tbh.

I was here at 12pm today picking some guy up to go back to Coventry...

Add that to a plane skidding off a runway at Katowice a week after I had flown there a few years ago and a derailment in the Lake District after I had travelled back from Glasgow a few days before (must have been 2010 or something?). Really do not want to be following me around anywhere. :lol:

That's my original neck of the woods (well, coupla miles off), that is.
