AWEB#13 Axe Head (Part 3) Preparation



It is Friday afternoon, we are approximately 36 hours away from the big event. Just like NASA there is a well prepared sequence to the events for the next 36 hours. To bring you up to date on the countdown so far:

At T-39 hours I dropped in on my local liquor store and purchased the Axe Head. Mel the guy that works in the store gave me a funny look when I put the bottles on his counter.

"It's for an experiment" was my comment.

"You are not going to drink that stuff are you?" he asked in a concerned tone.

At T-38 hours the Axe Head was carefully loaded into the refrigerator. Extensive research has shown that Axe Head should only be attempted when it is colder than a whores heart! 38 hours in the fridge should make it nice and frosty. I did try and contact NASA to try and secure some of that foam stuff they use on the shuttle to keep the bottles nice and insulated, but so far I have had no response from them. I can only assume that they are all too busy looking for the lost moon landing tapes.

At T-37 hours my wife made me go to the bank and pay all the bills. I think that she is a little nervous (a bit like Evil Kneivels wife probably was when he was about to take a jump) that something might go wrong on launch day, and she will get stuck with the gas and phone bill.

At T-36.5 hours it is time to start the simulated event. A 6 pack of Bow Valley Strong (7%) is going to be consumed as a dry run.

T-35 we are almost out of the Bow Valley Strong. I might need to drink some of the other beer I have in reserve.

T-34 the backup plan has been put into effect. The Bow Valley Strong has been exhausteded. Our backup plan uses 5% beer. I still feel confident about this project. I do not have the huge infrestructure of NASA but Jan will make sure that I am safe. Another 6 pack of 5% beer should give me the 'edge' that I will need on Sunday morning.

More later!!!!!!
