SO I was thinking about what we could discuss in under the shade tree because after all it is a "Freewheeling non-RV discussion over coffee, under the shade tree, or around the campfire."
I did have a gin and tonic in hand as I was thinking
First I thought we could compare boxer versus briefs but that would leave most of the women out.
That led me to Bras pro or con and what kind but I knew (I had not drunk much yet) that someone would be offended.
I strayed to other things which I will not put down on paper.
But I settled on

WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE BEVERAGE and what beverage makes you do or think strange things.
For me as you can see Gin and Tonic fills the bill twice for me

I love green tea, i go through about 3 gal a week.  I used to only drink diet normal tea but for some reason green tea goes better with the cookies i like lol

I gave up alchohol along time ago in my late 30's, just got tired of how it made me feel run down all the time.

LOL!  I used to be a big fan of Tanqueray gin and Schweppes Bitter Lemon, but over the last decade I've become a beer lover.  It started with the craft beers in Washington state when we spent two summers workkamping there in 2006-2007 and grew into a preferred beverage.  Can't say it ever made me do or think strange things, though.

Favorite Beverage: Coffee. Hot Black Coffee
Beverage that makes me do strange things:  No... That class does not taste good.

Water, coffee, milk- coffee first thing in the morning and after breakfast, OJ and milk with breakfast, water off and on all day, milk (or occasionally iced tea) with lunch and dinner. Perhaps a beer with a pizza, or maybe a margarita with Mexican food.

I got to have my one cup of fresh ground coffee beans every morning. It is my own special blend.
 My next favorite is plain natural spring water that bubbles out of our back yard mountain paradise.
 Then each evening one glass of wine, margarita, or "pain killer".
Pain Killer being the favorite, but the least available since so much goes into the prep.

I enjoy beer, red wine, Prosecco, scotch and a new cocktail my wife made for me the other night. A Manhattan of sorts made with brandy and triple sec. Two of those and I barely remember going to bed. There was one time when I was TDY to Holloman AFB I drank 3 bottles of MD 20/20 ( we called it vision wine). I was informed the next morning I did some crazy stuff.

Hahaha - I can't wait to see where this post goes!


My days of doing strange things are gone. Thinking strange things? I'd have to think about it.


I'm a beer guy - never liked hard liquor much. I'll drink swill in the dog days of summer (Coors light, Labatt Blue light, etc.) but I love trying all kinds of craft beers from light and fruity to dark and heavy. Whenever we're in a new restaurant in a new town I always ask "what beer have you got that's local?". I also like a good red wine but don't indulge in that much. On the nonalcoholic side, I'm a Diet Pepsi addict. I'm weening myself though from 3 or 4 per day to just a couple a week. Never liked coffee much...well hate it, to tell the truth. Can't even stand the smell!

I like a cold beer, preferably dark, at the end of the day. An amber rum (Appleton's) over ice won't be turned down though. A glass of red wine is nice with dinner but I don't indulge it. I stay away from tequila and saki (don't ask).

I quit drinking alcohol when I worked as a part-time bartender and saw the strange things it allowed other folks to do. My beverage of choice for years now has been black coffee (Folgers Half-Caff preferred) with one pink packet of sweetener. I average around 6-7 cups a day and do some things I'm sure other folks find strange, but it isn't the beverage causing it... ;)

Well my drink of choice is Mt Dew....I start my day with one and drink them all day long. I even take my evening pills with one before going to bed......Yes I know they are not good for me and I should stop drinking them. But I hate coffee.

I don't think anything makes me do strange things...Unless you call falling asleep strange. But my drink of choice is Maker mark 86 or Wild Turkey rare breed.

"I like beer. It makes me a jolly good fellow."
Craft beers mostly. I enjoy an occasional Grey Goose martini, very dry, with 3 blue cheese stuffed olives but those are rare anymore. Age related I guess.
Water! I drink water all day long.
2-3 cups of coffee every morning!

I don't like coffee and I avoid most caffeine except chocolate. I drink mostly water in warm weather and a lot of hot tea in cold weather. Being a single mom to 6 kids, I don't often drink alcohol, so pretty much anything goes right to my head, but I do enjoy wine, an occasional beer, or a mixed drink.

And with pizza; and with barbecue - my second choice of beverage -

But after a pint of Guinness, I start speaking with a brogue...    :o ::) ;D

Hi,

I don't drink any more. I have about two beers a day if I remember to have them or if I don't run out at the house/RV. I don't drink any less either.  ;D   Preferred type is IPA or better a double IPA. I will mix a ready to drink margarita mix with orange juice and ice on occasion. Rarely some wine.

I don't drink enough to do anything on the strange side. Gizmo100 Mountain Dew has caffeine in it. Do you have trouble sleeping? Perhaps you are keeping an eye open for some gator.

I am willing to sign up as a taster for BinaryBob if the job is still open.  ;D

Jack and Sprite Zero. 8 count pour with 1 can of Sprite Zero in a Yeti cup. 2 cups when reading the forum or needing to do some out of the box thinking. 3 or more when we send the little one to grannies.

The Sprite Zero defiently is my mixer of choice since there is no sugar to give the dreaded headaches. Ill like Jack or Knob Creek straight but that tends to lead to doing crzy stuff!   ;D

Mt dew has never stopped me from sleeping. But not having Mt dew gives me a caffeine headache.

As far as a Gator....We have a special Gator trap. It's baited with 2 pounds of bacon..

Coffee is my favorite beverage. Second favorite is Beer, a nice Pilsner or Lager. 

The last time I drank Gin, it was a Thursday after work in Ft Lauderdale.
The next thing I remember was waking Tuesday morning on Virginia Beach with nothing but a pair of cut-off jeans.

 ;D Beer and coffee used to be basic food groups but I have cut back consumption considerably. Too expensive and I got tired of both. I only got stupid once, on tequila, and don't drink it anymore although I like it.
