Happy hour around the camp fire – that time of the day when you can kick-back and reflect on a day of touring, wherever that might be, as the sun slips below the western horizon!

Being a Friday afternoon, I thought I would be bartender and take you order. Yes, it is a little early, but the sun is over the yard-arm and we’ve got into camp a little earlier than expected…

So, if you were ordering a drink to enjoy with your travelling companions what would it be?

And mind you, it doesn’t have to be alcoholic; the bar is well stocked of all kinds of beverages…!

But be warned, I am a responsible server of alcohol so you only get one drink, what’ll be?


Cheers, Baz – The Landy

Cheers Baz,

I'm not into beer so hope you might have a nicely chilled Apple Cider - lots of really good ones around these days and most have quite a kick.

I'm working in the shed making new doors for wardrobes upstairs so could use a cider to wash the wood dust away but it's only just after 2pm here so a bit early yet.

Whatever your favourite tipple - enjoy

Cheers and Thanks

Rick now a light beer would do fine than mate.

Last trip (CSR) it was two bottles of Brown Brothers Milawa 83 vintage and one old bottle of Glen Fittick (bought in the 90's).

That was a club training night. It was about -5 at sunup. Those chains are bloody cold.

I'll start with a beer thanks and whatever brand, except VB, that you've got. A xxxx will even do at a pinch.

When the sun goes down I'll have a shiraz or 3.

Thanks Muchly.

Four cubes of ice, slice or two of fresh lemon, one third of tall glass with white rum, top glass up with tonic water and sip away.
Followed by a shiraz or two or four.

If not warm vodka and orange will be great thanks :-)

Don't mind a couple of XXXX Gold of an evening Baz, but as we're only allowed one drink, can you knock me the following please?

In a chilled large glass, preferably a handle, add 6-8 ice cubes, then top with rum to top of cubes, add a finger of Bickfords Lime Juice cordial, and fill with chilled tank water.

If you haven't any comfortable seats, I'm happy to sit on the ground, leaning up against my swag.......sigh!

Here's luck, Baz,

Not the biggest of drinkers but! A nice cold beer at the end of a hot day goes down very well. Just one mind you. I'm not fussy what brand as long as its cold. After dinner, a nice cup of tea with lemon thanks.

Well, Friday has segued into Sunday. It's been a long, hot, dusty drive. A nice, cold, hoppy India Pale Ale for me, thanks Baz.

A Little Creatures IPA or a Feral Hop Hog would hit the spot perfectly.

And if the nibblies are coming out and we're going another round, could I please have an Evans and Tate Sav Blanc to follow.

Now, how do you like your steak cooked - R, MR or WD?

Cheers!

Ah, yes, Jeff, just about my favourite meal. Early days in the trip there'd be a salad to accompany it. Later, baked or steamed veges. Either way, yummmmmm.

I do confess, though, that after the IPA and the Sav Blanc, a nice shiraz to go with the meal is a must. I suppose if Baz the Barman is too responsible to serve me a third drink, I could raid my own stocks.

But that's ok, it will be a memorable night anyway with good company, good wine and good food in the billion star restaurant :-)

Cheers and bon appetite
