Skipped last week because I just didn’t have anything to say.
Yep, in 3 days it will be the start of another Cabin Weekend, or D&D Weekend or Gaming Weekend or just plain drunk weekend. Three or four weekends a year a bunch of friends get together to drink and play games. We are all a bunch of old geeks, so generally it is some old school D&D. This weekend coming up is that weekend. The last until fall. We will have anywhere between 6 and 10 people.
This weekend, however, I have to stay somewhat sober. It is my turn to lead these drunks through the game of killing monsters and grabbing loot. I spent last Saturday getting everything all ready to go. Had to find all the characters, get the adventure lined up and finished off, and get my head around what I want to do with them.
The other part to all this is getting the drinks. Generally, we go with a 1/2 barrel of Abita Amber, but since there will be only about 6 or 7 of us, so we went with a 1/4 barrel. We all end up bringing extra anyway, so no big deal. I have a couple bottles of “Bo and Luke” and a couple bottles of “Old Crustation Barleywine.” There will bourbon and vodka and other liquors down there as well.
It will be a great weekend, mine running from Friday through Monday.
