If the water remained cold enough, the beer might've survived pretty well. How was it?

It tasted horrible. Undrinkable.

Those blokes in the pic drank it anyway. Luckily I was ill.

Many years ago while coming down Pikes Peak, I passed a guy carrying a HUGE pack with gear tied on everywhere. We asked him why he was carrying so much and he told us that we would see shortly. About a half mile down the trail, we found out why. His partner was carrying a full keg of beer. This was about 8 miles and 5000' of elevation gain above the trailhead. He was carrying it up there for a hill climb (auto race) party. When we asked him why he didn't have someone drive him up and cache it somewhere, his only reply was "Shut the #$!@ up."

We found two Tecates in the register (ammo can) for Griffith Peak (11050') this May. They had been up there only a week, with cold nighttime T; however, the inside of the ammo box was a bit warm, even at 10 AM, from the direct sun.

A note in the register invited us to take them. A "party" had slogged through the snow with a full six-pack the week before. My buddy drank one, and said it tasted metallic.

That didn't help him much on the rest of the day, which amounted to 19 miles and 5000' elevation gain.

calling some of that stuff "beer" is generous...I mean....Bud, really DMT??!! Given its lack of taste, is it lighter to carry in or something? :lol:
