Every year I try to spend the 4th exercising as many constitutional freedoms as possible. In order:

1. Drink alcohol
2. Spout off about the government on NDA
3. Drink alcohol
4. Shoot guns
5. Drink alcohol
6. Refuse to allow the cop to search my car when he pulls me over
7. Exercise my right to a fair trial after I'm arrested.

9 days at the cabin in northern MN for some much needed R&R. Might even have a drink or two.... but probably not.

Right now scheduled to work. Going to try to get the 4th off and do the poker run for my buddy who was killed two years ago. Help light city fireworks that night. Drive to work Sunday with a hangover.
However, if I am able to start my new job before the 4th, I will be pleasantly intoxicated, fishing, and riding for 3-4 days (of course not intoxicated while riding, unless I am a passenger, and that has only happened once).

Plan is the same every year, since the 4th is my home towns annual celebration. Even though Mobridge's celebration just isn't what it used to be, a lot of alumni return. Its a tradition that every class has its 10, 20, 30,...etc year reunion over the 4th. Since the 4th is on a Saturday, I think it will a little better this year with people coming home. So the plan is to camp and enjoy the nightly festivities. I really enjoy seeing old classmates and teammates. Mobridge has produced some amazing people out in the world, like Olympians Bill n Jim Scherer.

I consume more alcohol over these 5 days than any other part of the year. Usually don't fish as much as just play around on the river with family n friends. The water is a meeting place, and I kind of just go with the flow. See a lot of sun rises during my life during the days around the 4th, it isn't a 1 day deal in Mobridge. I've seen and done some crazy things in my younger days over the 4th.

In the past, I have been going up to blacktail dam.... friend of my sisters has a cabin up there, play bean bag corn hole, eat, usually fish off the dock and catch some big bluegills in the weeds, have a few beers, then when the sun goes down, its armaggedon with fireworks...holy schitz...most people with the money buy the big fireworks and its nuts for like 3 hours...ha ha ha, just sit back, drink and watch them have at it. So if someone doesn't invite me to a fishing trip elsewhere, thats where I mostly like to head again this year, Blacktail is more of a recreational lake, than a fishing lake, as its a circus on the water with all the jet skis and pontoons, there are perch, pike and walleye, but they all small, when I say small, I mean small....lol
