First off, not likely I can do this any time soon just something that popped in my mind and stemming from all my best vacations were because of the people and also because I have a local person taking me around. So wondering if this has ever been done.

Won't it be wonderful if someone (s) did a road trip across US (sorry about folks in other country but idea is still the same), visiting folks from all the different states/cities and sharing drinks and stories or even in accordance to their vacation destinations.

If I was doing this, I'll be bringing what's open in my bar and many from my bunker and share what I have while trying what I haven't tasted or even seen.

This would be a great bourbon (and rye) experience but also meeting many in the SB.com community while seeing and living the local scene.

Cheers
Hugh

Fantastic idea. I as well don't know when I could travel but my bar is open for anyone passing through. I don't have a lot but I am willing to share with the good folks here on SB.

As plans go this is a good one.

I'll second (third?) this idea! :cool: It sounds like so much fun, it's probably illegal (actually it is illegal to travel with open liquor, but who checks, right?). Anyway, I'll add my own invitation to whomever expects to be South of Detroit, along I-75 or I-94. PM me a few days before, and maybe we can plan a visit for the enjoyment of all concerned. I have a fair variety in my stash, for what it's worth. :rolleyes:

So buy the sampling goods at the next destination.

Just searched. Opened container can be transported in the trunk or locked glove box just not in the passenger area where it is easily accessible to the driver, especially, and also the passenger.

This way we can share some of the harder things to find but that's not the most important but nice to have.

Anyone from the midwest or the south heading to destinations on the coast can feel free to stop by for a thorough dose of Appalachian hospitality. I-64, I-77, and I-79 all converge about 1 mile from my doorstep.

That's true Hugh, locked in the trunk is viewed as an exception but it's not something I want to explain to an uninformed uniform officer.

Agreed, that's probably wise.

I would probably be using a lock box just in case and that would be easier to explain and no way it is easily accessible.

Or else another fun idea would be the ever changing and traded traveling SB.com bottle. So, we will bring a bottle to visit and leave with another un-opened bottle then carry that cycle through for the whole trip. This would allow people to share bottles and be expose to even more possibilities.

It would be quite informative and entertaining. Minimum a blog is in order.
