We drove the old Nash hearse, several cars and two kegs of beer out to Eden Valley for the annual "8th of May" kegger. Those of you familiar with the WSU "8th of May" tradition may wonder why a bunch of guys would drive out into the woods to drink beer by themselves. And looking back on it now, you're absolutely right, it makes NO sense at all! But what the hell, we had fun any way.
Two kegs, no waiting!
