Commitment

Have you ever seen one of those giant jugs of booze, and then thought, “Nah, that’s crazy!”

Today, we thought “Perfect!”

The winery that’s bottling this stuff – Hermanos Domingos – is exactly two blocks away from our camp site. We could have walked an extra block to the next winery, but we decided to keep it local.

Drinking 4.65 liters of the stuff is a bit of a test, though. It’s not too bad, but it’s not all that great either.

The price? About 10 bucks. That would work out to about $1.60 USD per bottle. We’ve set the bar even lower (higher?) for Two-Buck Chuck – and the wine is WAY better.

And, for anyone counting… this is our 500th post. If you’ve read them all, then… you deserve an enormous bottle of wine too.

    Fine with me if you send it to mom. I’ll pick it up next time going (way) south.
    Yep, I’ve read them all, some more than once. Sometimes it’s fine to admit that someonelse’s life is more interesting.
    Keep busing!

    My parents made wine in Sonoma Co. when I was a kid growing up. It too was not that bad, but not that great. When I was a high school senior I would steal it out of the garage where it was fermented and then share it with my friends. I guess that was my reward for the “post” of each day living with them from 0-18 years. I’ve enjoyed your 500 posts too! Cheers!

    Happy 500th post day!! Truly something to celebrate!
    I’ve never counted, but I’ve read them all, sometimes spending late night hours catching up after I’ve been away.
    I don’t know about 2 buck Chuck, but I’m happy to be the
    “2 dolla Lalla” 🙂 (w/ my late night plastic cup of wine)!

    Cheers!!!

    Thank you for an excuse to drink my nightly jug of wine but I would have read your posts for much much less reward. Thank you and stay safe.

    You forgot to say when you would be shipping my bottle of wine too. Unless parents don’t count since we read all the blogs anyway.
