Trip Introduction:
A disclaimer on the potential rudeness of this group's sense of humor. We have had a guys-only "Sausage Party" pretty much every year since 2002. Basically an excuse for a bunch of (mostly) married guys to get together and act like college (or less) kids again. All-Pro this trip never is, but All-Fun almost every time! Lots of inside jokes - don't feel bad if you don't get the humor - it's probably better that way! This has been modified from its original "memoir" version, since you'd all probably think I was a complete wacko if I left it as documented for our "group reminescence" (prolly will anyway). Enjoy!
