Surly Scot Time.

Itís time for another one of my whirlwind adventures. Iím off this weekend to Bourbonnais, IL for the Gathering on the Theatiki. This is a pretty fun event to do, as long as the temps stay out of the ďoh my god Iím meltingĒ variety. For the last couple of years the temps have been in the upper 90s low 100s with high humidity. That may be why every year at this event I damn near get heat stroke, even with drinking gallons of water.

This weekend they are calling for temps in the high 70s and low 90s and maybe rain on Saturday. Me + Re-enactment = Rain. Weíre prepared for a torrential downpour sometime Saturday afternoon. Hey, why should I start having dry canvas now?

If any of you are in the area and want to see a good battle, this is the one to attend. Of all the re-enactments I do, this one has the best battles. Plus if you stick around you can help me cull off some of the overstock left over from all the beer reviews. I think Iím bringing 6 different beers to this event. 12 bottles of the last four reviews and two growlers from Carlyle.

You oughtta come down to the Colonial Trade Faire at Jubilee State Park, near Peoria. I am not a "battle re-enactor" and neither are most of the River Scum, but we sure had a good time last year.

Those were new growlers, I just bought them.

Petey, I've heard it's a working event.
