    I'm right there with you. I'm so hyped up.
    Everyone be safe in your travels tonight and tomorrow. I'm looking forward to some drunk posting from the hotels tonight. With a forecast of mostly sunny and 72 we are looking at the best weather at DLD in quite a while.

    I conquered that beast solo this week in prep for DLD. I also woke up and didn't remember even going up to bed.

    I'm ready... Not shown: backup plastic Huna Day taster, 4 water bottles, pretzels... so we shouldn't have to call in a code 8... we need pretzels: repeat, pretzels. Sorry to tease on the D6, that probably won't make it til noon. I'll try to bring some of the others to the grassy knoll though. I'll most likely be wearing my "I only drink whales" t-shirt.

    Why is every Canadian salty about the variant distribution change?

    ...They were all in Group "Ay".

    I can't believe I'm honestly considering wearing shorts to a Dark Lord Day. I keep waiting for this weather forecast to flip, but it's looking pretty sweet. I think one of the underrated parts is that there hasn't been rain the couple days prior to DLD, which means the grassy areas won't be soaked & muddy.

    Got word from a friend of mine who is already up there that FFF did do a special bottle release at the brewery this morning. In past years, they've done that.

    Cooler is packed with beer and ice,
    Stuff is in my car,
    Just waiting for my wife to get home from work and then, it'll be wheels up from Columbus!!

    I've tossed the idea of wearing short as opposed to jeans but I'm still undecided. It's going to be pretty cool outside. The hourly forecast shows 40's and 50's in the morning. It won't hit 70 until around 3pm.

    I'm not committing to shorts just yet. It's supposed to be in the high 40s before 8am.

    Yeah...I'm sticking with jeans. It's only going to be in the lower 70's for a few hours late in the afternoon.

    This is what me hesitant to commit. What makes me want to commit to shorts, though, is that I will have over 20 pounds worth of beer/food/water hanging on my back and I'm known to sweat in the sun regardless of whether it's 55 or 85 degrees!

  29. ChiCubs78

    ChiCubs78 Initiate (0) Jan 2, 2015 Illinois

    Yeah, I can see that. I tend to run a bit on the hot side as well. I'm thinking jeans will be appropriate however as my springtime ultra white legs might blind some of you.

    Hopefully today dries them out, but as someone who cut their grass yesterday in anticipation of wasting my entire weekend drinking and recovering, my yard was wet enough that 10000 drunks stampeding on it would have created a giant pit of mud.
