I'm a whiskey guy - Gentleman Jack...but tasting any alcohol is a pleasant pastime on any continent.

Have fun!

AFK and Assorted Other Disappearances
A successful weekend, though not so many vineyards visited.  I made up 4 litres of mulled wine in the slow cooker upon arrival that did more damage to our next days' investigation than intended.  The temperature outside was 6 degrees celsius or 43 fahrenheit so it went down a treat.  Just one of those times when all the various elements came together for a really good time, and we probably couldn't replicate it if we tried.

The next day became an afternoon start but since the other reason for our get together was to celebrate the birthday, no one cared.

We only ended up visiting a couple of small vineyards Johner Estate and Gladstone Estate but found some well-priced wines.  I love it when I think a vineyards 2nd tier label is better than the expensive one they really want us to buy.

We tend to listen to the sometimes pretentious wine talk and then just buy what we like anyway.  The young Dutch girl that was pouring samples at the Johner vineyard was not only easy on the eye but also a little generous with her sample pours.  It wasn't a bad methodology since we bought more at that vineyard than the other.

One of the best finds turned out to be a small cottage industry chocolate shop Schoc.  We ended up spending just about as much money there as in the vineyards.

Throw any of those names into google followed by NZ and you'll be rewarded with a few pictures if you want the visual experience that accompanies this report. :o)

Just awesome - feel like I was there.  Someday, maybe. I hope, anyway.

Sounds fantastic! I have to admit that my problem with things like wine tours is that I tend to be pretty much done in by the first stop regardless of the pours. It's great to get out to vineyards and taste the stuff there though.

We had a dry Riesling from an Upstate NY vineyard this weekend that convinced me that in the 10 years since our last effort to explore them has been well worth the wait, so maybe it's time to try again? Adventure!

Hi All,
         Just a FYI.  My dad passed peacefully in his sleep.  A little sudden as the end came on quicker than expected, but it was his decision to stop further treatment and he is at peace. Iím flying to gather for the funeral and not back in my home town until Sunday your time.  You may not miss by disappearance as I keep unusual hours, but I will probably be distracted, so NPC if required Seer.  Iím all okay.

Peace and prayers. Get ready for the 'aha' moments and embrace the memories. God Bless!

Travel day, will be out of town until the 18th. Will have internet once I get to where I'm going, so there should not be interruptions, but you never know. Figured I'd give a head's up.

I'll be on a church retreat this weekend, with prep tomorrow, so next post will likely come Sunday night at the earliest. Possibly Monday.

Thx, the Management.

I'm in the UK from Saturday the 6th to Saturday the 21st.

The first part is work, the second part ain't, but I'll probably not have more than my iPhone, which may make posting regularly a challenge.

I'm travelling between cities for the next few days.  I'm on iphone as well so hopefully, everything remains seamless.

So your esteemed DM (or perhaps not) will be travelling as well for the next week. My posting will be intermittent, at least, more so than usual.

Will try to stay on pace, given that we're in the middle of combat.

Iíll be traveling oversea the next couple of weeks (5/18 Ė 6/3), not a clue as to the internet availability.  Doing a bit of site seeing with the family in France and Germany.  Run my character as needed will check in and post as I am able.

I'll be away for most of next week returning on Sunday. I'll have WIFI for most of the trip; however, it's work, I've got to stay focused, and it's in Frankfurt, Germany, so I'll be 6 hours ahead of EST.
