Well, the Oregon Brewer's Fest (OBF) was fun. My only regret was: I couldn't meet up with the Beer Bloggers, for "family" reasons. I spent all of Friday with my Portland-area family members, and got caught up. It was probably for the best, as I was running a 50-Mile trail run near Mt Hood on Saturday morning.

My son, my nephew and me hit the Brew Fest hard all day on Thursday. There were a few standouts, and a few crappy beers, but most of them were enjoyable. The weather was perfect, that's for sure. I'll post some more about the experience later.

I know this is going to sound impossible, but I think I saw you at the fest. I recall distinctly a person of your rough looks wearing a t-shirt like that pirate tee. But it may have been the Pliny.

It was probably me. I had had too much Pliny, as well.

FITTY MILES ?? Your ran for ten hours straight ?!?! Whoa !! Ben, you da Mahn. Bloody Hell, I'm tired after my 30 minute run. Next time I feel like complaining at minute 22 I will think of your ten hours! Good for you - Congratulations.

Sorry I missed the OBF - it was the first one I've missed since the start.

Aloha - Fal
