Hey Hogleg.....we got a fucking DD!!!
Indeed you do.
I might even let him drive us around in my truck so we don't have to be seen in the tree hugger lesburu.

I'll only do this if I can hit triple digit speeds on gravel. In 2WD.

And stop at my discretion to light up some rocks with the Garand.

No real answers, Rick. I've been to three specialists at this point, and they're all telling me the same thing: it's a poorly understood condition, and there are so many variables that it's hard to isolate the actual cause. Could be a reaction to something in the alcohol (grains, hops, sulfites, fruit, etc.) or it could be an actual allergy to the ethanol. That seems to be the situation in my case as I get basically the same reaction to all booze. I had one glad of wine the other night and got all red and flushed within 15 minutes. I had pre-medicated with antihistamines (per doctors suggestion), which has been working, but it didn't work this time. I think the universe is telling me my boozing days are over.

In addition to the various specialists, I've done a ton of my own research. You can find some comprehensive medical journal articles here about alcohol intolerance/allergy: American Academy of Allergy, Asthma & Immunology - https://www.aaaai.org

I'm to the point where drinking, and then worrying about anaphylaxis, just takes the fun right out of it. Not to mention, I've spent about as much time an money as I want to at this point to try to figure it out. It's actually been easier to lay off booze this time around compared to when I had to quit beer back in '10.

I suppose there are worse things that could happen to a man....
Well shit, GB, it sounds like with way more effort you found the same results. Score one for the guy that took that lazy man's approach.

I quit drinking on the spot when my oncologist told me too. After 2 1/2 years I was bored to near tears. I had home scope further down my throat, and once he told me there was no sign of any of the evils that would be indicators, I told him his model patient was off the wagon. After my hiatus I'm an easy drunk, and it's been years since I actually enjoyed bing drunk, so I don't ever do it.

But a coupl'a beers are sure nice at the end of the day. Speaking of which.....

oh yeah- ps- a friend of mine has quit drinking and instead adopted tinctures in his evening tea. He's quite happy with that solution. With my struggles with anesthetic hangover, I think I'll stay away. And I love the flavor of a good beer.

But of course, that goes without saying doesn't it?

For the record, I practice driving under the influence in my truck on loose dirt/gravel roads at high speeds near or in excess of 100 MPH, it's why I purchased that particular vehicle.

So it's not lime we were on some willy nilly death mission. I was pretty confident that we weren't gonna die. Lime 99+% confident.

Relates: I recently had an extremely high pucker factor when I was completely airborne on the wrong landing angle at about 110 MPH going down hill on a two track. To my surprise the airbags didn't deploy on landing and there was no significant damage to the truck except for some dents and scratches from the juniper tree patch that we landed in about 40 yards off the road.

Shortly thereafter we assaulted some rocks with our black rifles.

May or may not have been drinking whiskey.

I like driving fast in the desert.
