Last year went to this party on the 3rd of July and I can’t seem to find the details if any that I posted about it. But our friend Jeff has a house on Mason Lake. And they have a fireworks show on the 3rd just so people can do whatever they want on the 4th. It’s all a ploy to bring in more money for everyone that works in the area. But last year some of the more memorable moments were Nick’s band jamming out to at least 1000+ people because that music goes all over the lake. More booze then I can recall. Seeing way to many men running around naked. But the craziest part was a beer run me and Ollie went on. We were given $385 to go buy some beer. Well everything was closed at that time except for a Wal-Mart that took us forever to find. We get two carts and just grab everything they have left on the shelves.
So we walk up to the cashier and she is like “Are you boys having fun tonight?” I responded with “Well if you come over we might” mutual chuckle as we handed over the money to pay off our bill. So we go out to the car and we have to figure out a way to navigate all this beer into a 1993 Honda Civic. With Ollie’s Stereo taking up the trunk that negates that space so we have it all inside the car with us. All we can think about is what will happen if we get pulled over for some reason. We have all this beer that we bought with other people’s money that might get taken. So we are extra careful not to speed or do anything crazy.
On the way back we get lost again. We go down all these roads and since the fireworks just ended we have tons of traffic everywhere. So we drive down this road and we pass a checkpoint with cops basically. So we are basically like “Holy Fuck” so we drive down trying to find a way to turn around but there are way to many cars. So we just become asses and do a 3 point turn and just let ourselves in the line. The cop checks to make sure if we are okay to drive and sees all the beer in the backseat. None of it open mind you looks at us funny tells us to have a good night. So we are thinking “How did we manage that? Better not press our luck” so we are trying to find the road were Jeff lives and we manage to find it.
We pull up and I grab like 4 cases of beer and so does Ollie but one of the cases he has have the bottles in it. Our friend Jeff who is excited for beer like most everyone is. Comes running up to us totally naked. Now being a guy and having a naked guy run up to you can tend to freak you out. He is trying to grab a case of beer and we are trying to avoid being touched or hit with his equipment the top case of Henry’s falls down and breaks creating a wonderful foam mess of the fallen beer. Which caused us to say “Dude Jeff Man Chill Out Put that thing away we got it” so I am carrying my selection of beer to the deck and I have this girl coming up to me and saying “Where is my Mike’s Hard Lemonade?! I Gave you Money for Mikes Hard Lemonade! I need It! Where Is It?!” Now getting the 3rd degree from this girl who has what appears a poor taste in her beverage choice. Is annoying the crap out of me to get her beer. I responded “It’s the first run there is more to carry.” To which she flipped out “Why didn’t you bring it first? That is my money if you didn’t get it I expect to be paid back” now I was thinking this shouldn’t be a big issue but she was making it into one. Luckily at that moment some guy came and grabbed her ass which prompted her to get even more upset and throw that guys cell phone into the hot tub. Which caused some more drama for them. On that note they had a nice evening in a tent and there first child just came along from what I am told.
On the third trip to the car to get the beer which was the crappy Coors and Bud Light that everyone seems to enjoy prompted the running of another Naked Guy who was wearing what he called a “Skirt” which was actually some girls T-Shirt that he “borrowed” which prompted us to give him a lot of shit about it the next morning.
That was just the beer run portion of the party.
Another good memory was it was about 3am and things were finally starting to die down and chill out. Me, Ollie and Jason decided we wanted to go jump off the dock. So it is rather cold and we sneak into the park that is next to Jeff’s house which is now closed. So we go over there and we start running and jumping off the dock all a bit drunk. Ollie had a bottle of champagne that he was drinking all night long. But doing all this was sobering us up really fast as it seems because I had never swam drunk before and it was an intersting experience. But it’s just like after we had our fill of almost drowning ourselves over and over we were walking back to the party and it was a beautiful night and got me thinking. I am glad I have friends to do these kinds of things with. It was just like a really good time and had a blast at this party.
It will be happening again July 3rd from afternoon – pass out hit me up if you would like full details.
