    Hey all,

    So tonight is the night! I plan to be at founders around 12:30 p.m. to sit at he bar for a while before settling down outside for KBS release. Who else is planning to do the same? looking for some people to help burn the downtime with and talk about beer and generally just shoot the Sh*t until 11 a.m. when the doors open back up.

    Whose with me?

    EDIT: I'll also be bringing a few things to share

    We've been here for 2 days. Rations are low, but spirits are high. We got our first meal since arriving today after Chuck killed a squirrel. The meat was stringy, but it sufficed. I used it's pelt to make some really cute ear muffs.

    You can find me in line tomorrow wearing a yellow backpack and a bright yellow Michigan hoodie.
    First group of occupiers that yell out, "Hey NPH" get a pour of some Heady Topper.

    Careful not to eat any wild sweet pea. There will be hundreds of people waiting after you to take your spot. Though I heard the poisoning was all a myth..........or was it............

    Winds between 25-35mph tomorrow morning, going to feel like 15 degrees.
    That is not fun.

    Sounds like I'm going to have to wear like 4 hoodies plus a jacket just to have a chance to stay a little warm for 6 hours...

    At least at 6:30 the Greyhound station across the street opens. A great place to drop a deuce, wash up, and warm up!

    Is 4am too early to get there??? Either way I'll be there sleeping in a folding chair with headphones on. Wake me up around 7:30 and ill share all the thumbprint new glarus I got (barleywine, apple ale and cherry stout). Also bringing a raspberry tart.... All the fruit makes my body think its eating a legitimate breakfast.

    4am is earlier than necessary but there will certainly be people there at that time.
