Bachelor Party at the Ranch
One of my great friends, Clint, is getting married this summer to Julie, and to celebrate the occasion thirteen of his friends spent the weekend at a guest ranch outside Bandera, Texas. It was a fantastic male-bonding weekend; it's always amuzing to me how straight guys hang out when they leave the girlfriends and wives behind. I was the only gay guy in the group and it was, as it should be in a perfect world, no big deal at all.
We met up in Austin and consolidated trucks for the road trip to the ranch. We stopped in Luckenbach, Texas, we went to many honky-tonk bars at night, shot guns in the morning, hung out by the pool, played an epic water volleyball game, ate lots of meat and Tex-Mex food, and drank lots of cold frosty beverages.
I enjoyed hanging out with all the guys, and I was especially thankful to have quality time with Clint and Ted, because I love those guys and we don't hang out enough.
