Camping Necessities - A First Night Must

As any responsible camper will tell you, this is one of those items that should be near the top of your checklist before embarking on any camping trip, and should never be left by the wayside or ignored in any capacity. Proper application of this necessity will yield satisfying results for the entire group from the beginner or novice camper to the expert camper in your particular group. Also makes a great addition to any First Aid Kid.

You might be a redneck if you think Patron and Bud are "good." I mean that in a nice way. Bud gets a pass, but Patron is mediocre quality T that has been marketed to appear better than it is. Thought a anti-establishhment type like you should know that! Cheers

Anon-
I guess the quality of Patron compared to the 'top shelf' outrageously priced tequilas out there might be mediocre, but it's the best that I have had yet in its price range. I can drink it straight from the bottle with no lime or salt (never do salt anyways) but I have a rule for any tequila I drink (which isn't often) and that is it has to be chilled, or better than that, straight out of the freezer. When we're camping the bottle gets stowed in the coolers surrounded by ice and that's good enough for me. The only other that compares IMO is Don Julio silver, but I rarely see it on the shelves anywhere around where I live.

The bottle in this picture cost me about $40 +/- at some shitty little liquor store we stopped at on our way out of town. I don't believe in the higher price making a better tequila because that's all up to any one person's opinion and taste. Patron does me just fine.

I rarely drink tequila to get drunk on it because I do weird shit on a tequila bender so it's maybe once or twice a year and only when I'm camping. I'm more of a whiskey drinker when I want to turn things up a notch, but that is starting to taper off a bit. I mostly drink beer and only beer and when I do it's Bud.

So after all of that, I guess the answer is yes, I'm a redneck. A Patron drinking, Bud slugging redneck. Yee Haw! Cheers!

And occasionally you are a Shiner-swilling adopted Texan redneck.

Ya'll should see the things he does on a Shiner bender.

I prefer my Tequila out of a pistol shaped bottle.

That I am Harper, but not as often as I would like. The last time I was out there Paul and I were drinkin' Lone Star but it didn't even compare to Shiner...

LMAO! That was the coolest tequila bottle I've ever been drunk out of kerrcarto. That was some good shit too if I remember correctly. What was it?

It survived the flight back home with a few shots still in the barrel and after one of those late drunken nights in the back yard the bottle broke when I went to put it in the dish washer. That would be a great Christmas gift. Maybe a stocking stuffer..

Good 'ol tequila - Official quaff of The 57%.

Well, unless The 75% is factored in also.
