Day 1: Drunk! Day 2: Drunk! Day 3: Drunk! Day 4: Very Drunk, New Years! Day 5: Drunk! Day 6: Drunk! Day 7: Drunk! Day 8: Drunk! Day 9: Very Hung-over.... So here we go! Day 1 As I'm from Alabama I was flying thru Houston. Well I started to have a few cocktails before the flight, Oops... Arrived at Cancun and was a little sauced. Went thru Customs and thank God the green light went on for me. So I headed out to find Brant's Shuttle service. Found the dude and he had my name on the list, Great. So a guy came up and got my bag and off to the resort we headed. (What I found out is it was the wrong company, I will get into that later) I asked the shuttle driver to stop so I could have a Shot of Tequila at a roadside bar, on the road again. Check in was great, room was great. Of course I headed to the sexy pool. It was about 3:30. WOW.... This is where things get a little cloudy for day one. I think I met just about everyone on day one or the met me. If you were there you know what I mean. Ended up at the Pati O’ Bar sometime later and met a ton of cool people. As hours went by I was glad the booze was watered down. Considering if you drink 10 to 20 drinks in 3-4 hours, plus shots! Then I met Nicky and T and at 10:30 they have a deal with a specific bar off property for each night of the week. $40 bucks for a one way ride, entrance, and all you can drink. Not a bad deal! I don’t remember the name of the bar. Day 1&2 ran together! So I ended up at a bar called Nectar around 5am. The sun coming up is a nice thing to see in such a great place. Somewhere around 8am I headed back to the resort. By this point I’m feeling really good. I hung out with the bellman and security guys for a bit. Great guys, get to know them they will take care of you! Feeling a bit hungry headed over to Margaritas for some Eggs Beni. At breakfast I met two great girls Stef and Amanda. After having a great time they headed to the pool and I headed to the room for my swim suit. I might have slept an hour or two, really don’t remember. So at the pool I met up with Stef and Amanda. It was a perfect day! Hung out at the pool most of the day just chilling out and having lots of drinks. Trevor came along somewhere in the day, way too much energy, but funny as hell and a great guy. Met Robbie and Diana, Joyce, Nick and Autumn, The Welsh Boys, The Scotsman, and a lot of other people. Then Stef asked me if I wanted to play Darts. I said sure no problem how bad could it be? If your there on Monday’s make sure you play darts. (If anyone reading this was there and you have pictures please send them my way.) WOW!!! Everyone really knows me now. HAHAHA… So starting to run low on energy and headed for some zzzzz… 3 Hours sleep and back at it! I’m A Rockstar!!! Partied at the Pati O’ Bar till about 3or 4am and headed to sleep, wink, wink… So now that day 1 and 2 are over I’m really starting to like this place. Day 3: Woke up around 10am feeling like I got ran over. Still in great spirits I meet up with the girls and Trevor at the pool. Hung out for a bit and we headed for the Buffet. Not bad at all if I may say. Back to the pool after lunch and then The Edmonton Boys show up. They had just arrived 30 minutes earlier. Stef and Amanda were leaving in just a few hours. So guess what, SHOTS OF TEQUILA for everyone and a few rounds at that! Stef and I say our goodbyes wink, wink… After we take the girls to the shuttle it’s time to crash for a few more hours. Woke up at midnight and guess what? Party like a rockstar again till 5am which is what time the Pati O’ Bar closes. FYI To Be Continued……… Day 4 New Years Eve!!! Wake up around noon, I know I was slacking, but needed food! Had the drunken stomach for a few days. Head to the buffet saw a bunch of people I knew but was kind of in lala land. Bloody Mary from the waiter, didn’t ask he just knew, go figure. $10 bucks goes along way at the beginning of the week. Ahhh hair of the dog is just what I needed! Food at the buffet was much better when you’re hungry. Chowed down! Feeling much better now, get another one for the road. So off to the sexy pool it’s somewhere around 1pm and the pool is in full action if you know what I mean. Nicky, T and Christian are at the pool working the crowd for some kind of game. I’m still a bit on the cloudy side. Run across Nick and he asked if I wanted to play Volleyball, sure I’m in. Played two games and was about to DIE!!! Had to leave and jump in the cold water of the pool. Swim up to the bar for 2 shots of Tequila. Again a few bucks go along way at the beginning of the week. Feeling so much better now and meeting more new and old people at the pool bar. (People are so friendly if you only introduce yourself.) Now I’m feeling the Tequila so guess what. I run into the Welsh Boys, Nicky and Mark, it’s really hard to understand their accent so I just nodded most of the time. Shots, shots and more shots. So it’s New Years Eve and time to get ready for the party later. Crash for a couple of hours and ready to go. As I walked out of my room, BAM some of the hottest dancers I have ever seen are on the stage at the Pati O’ Bar. The band was playing and everyone was having a great time. Everyone was dressed up for the night and looked great. The staff started handing out balloons with resolution cards to let go at midnight. Just a few minutes before midnight the champagne was passed out. The countdown 3-2-1 the crowd goes wild women kissing me which I loved and the guys shaking hands. Then the Scotsman pulls out the Borat man thong, now that was funny. Everyone continues drinking till late in the night. Somewhere around 4am I crash. At 5am the Scotsman and his buddies start singing a song which I have no idea what they are even saying. Crash out, dead asleep. What a night! Day 5 Don’t really remember what happened that day. I think it was just a chill day at the pool! Day6 Wake up early around 8:30 and head to the buffet to meet the group. Nicky had invited Trevor, Joyce (Queen), Andrea, and I to go to Playa Del Carmen for the day. We walk out to catch the city bus just in front of the resort. Jump on the bus and head to the Mexican style of Wal-Mart, for Vodka and Beer what a crazy store. We are loaded up and head to the main bus terminal which looks like an airport. Finally find our bus, tickets were $3.50 each. Now the bus was very nice with a movie during the ride. It took about 1-1/2 for the ride. So we busted into the Vodka for the journey. Finally arrive in Playa Del Carmen, what a great place to visit. Cool little streets with all kinds of shops and restaurants. From what Nicky told us PDC is where more of the wealthy locals head to in the holiday season. As we make our way onto the beach it is as packed as I’ve ever seen any beach, and I live on one. Holiday season is the reason and a Music festival was going on also. It’s a really cool beach with great resorts that have beds and very nice lounge chairs close to the water for rent. (FYI you have to buy 2 bottles of booze to rent the beds and chairs.) Everything was rented out so we were stuck with our resort towels on the sand. No problem it was a perfect place to set up camp. We started boozing and people watching which was quite the site. What a great beach! We were all getting a bit hungry and Joyce had to be on the shuttle from TTR by 7pm. We stopped by a little café and had a bite to eat, watch out for the salsa. It was the hottest salsa I have ever tasted!!! So now we are in a hurry to get back to the resort. We found a cab and it was only $10 bucks ahead back to Cancun. It was $3.50 to take the bus; I’ll take a cab next time. So 5 of us pile into this small, very small cab back to the resort. What a ride! We had beers in the car and had to roll the windows up every time we went thru security check points. Back at the Resort, What a great Day! So we head to the bar once again. Everything was in full swing so we joined in on the fun. For some reason it seemed to be a shot night. I don’t really remember who all was there but it was fun. I’m pretty sure Nick, The Welsh Boys, Scotsman, Trevor, and a few girls were there. Another 5amer was about to happen. Yep, it did. Crash again because we have the big Booze Cruz in the am. Day 7 Wake up early for the 1st of Steve’s Booze Cruze in2009. Meet outside at 9am and see the group that’s going, looks fun already. But where is Trevor? He was nowhere to be found. Then I rememberd his room number. I call and low and behold he answers the phone. He sounds like death warmed over and tells me he is just going to meet us on the island. I get Paul to talk to him on the phone and tell him where we were going. Go back over to the group and tell Nick what was up. Nick calls him and he is on the way, Nick you are the man. We had to make sure the entertainment was on the boat with us. We all load up in vans and head for the docks, pay our tickets $60 each and board the boat. The crew looks like a great group to give us an entertaining Cruze. They go thru the rules with us and they didn’t give a shit what we did, within reason. Let the drinking begin! About an hour later we stop for the snorkeling part of the trip. They hand out our gear and we are in the water. Not too bad of a snorkeling trip, been on better and been on worse. The current was great it just moved us along nice and easy. The funny part was I would keep an eye on the boat every once in a while and you could tell our boat from a mile away. Dancing Shawn was on the top of the boat doing his thing in a tuxedo man thong. Very funny! About 45 minutes later we head for the boat and to my amaze there was less clothes on the women than when we jumped in. I’m never snorkeling again on Steve’s Booze Cruze! Some of the guys told me the water Police kept circling our boat to check out the view. Other boats seemed to be very close to our boat as well. Great time! So we head to lunch at a nice little beach just a mile or so away. As we are getting off the boat one of the deckhands says “Who would like to hold a Shark”. Hey I’m in, so I go down the ladder to this pen in the water and some dude is holding a pretty good size nurse shark. He tells me to stand beside the shark. He told me to put one hand near the back of his stomach and the other one up by his mouth. Now wait a minute, I was born at night but it wasn’t last night. So I trusted him and then he told me to lift it out of the water. After the 3rd time they took the picture and I was out of there! I can say been there and done that now… So off to lunch, not bad and it was a fun place. Some confusion with the golf carts but no big deal. Hung out for a while after lunch then back on the boat to head toward down town. By the way Paul, nice dress! Downtown for an hour then back on the boat for the ride home. Great ride, fun music, fun people, starting to feel a bit on the drunken side now. What a trip on the 1st Booze Cruz of 2009! Paul in the dress and Dancing Shawn along with some nice shoes… Back at the resort now and head to the bar, go figure. Decided to crash for a few hours and back at it again at the Pati O’ Bar by 9pm. Nicky from the resort says the bus is going to The Bulldog for the night. Now that was a very cool club! We had our own section and met some new people that had just arrived in the past few days. Starting to get a little sauced up again and The Welsh boys show up along with Simone and some other dudes. So here we go drinks, shots, drinks, shots, etc… Head back to the resort for some reason. I think we drank all of the bottles they gave us at the club or something like that. Here we go again Day 7 runs into day 8! As we get back to the resort there is no music because of the Scotsman the night before. No problem there was this girl named Donna from Newcastle playing her guitar. Wow what a voice! Jonny the bartender stocks us up as he is about to close. The four of us head to Donnas’ room which looked directly at the Buffet entrance on the 2nd floor. We are starting to run out of drinks and then the Buffet opens. (Remember what I said about a little money goes a long way) One of the waiters spots me and I head down to say hi. While I’m there I might as well get a few drinks for the gang. Head back up to the room. So our drinks are getting low and the waiter waives and I nod and he is on his way at 6:30am with a tray full of drinks. Too Funny! Between 7am and 10am is a little fuzzy. So we’re at the Sexy pool again around 10 or 11 saying hi and telling funny stories from the night before. Nick asked if I wanted to play a little V-ball, sure I’m in, that lasted about 15 minutes, too hot and boozed up. Back to the pool, I jump in and the water was GREAT, nice and cold. Then I hear there is a Beer Chugging game starting at noon. Hmmm… I’m in, why not. Ha I even got second place! (Now remember never be first or last, just somewhere in the middle of any of their games.) I’m feeling great now, and full. Nicky and T challenge Trevor and me to a game of Horseshoes. I’m in on that! They were topples and I was drunk and happy. Best two out of three was the game for $20 a head. I getting in the groove and was about to throw a ringer then T moons me. I think the horseshoe landed in the Ocean somewhere. Well we let them kick our ass! They deserved the win and a tip. They are great girls and you should get to know them if you get the chance. Now I’m back in the pool and met some cool girls from Canada. They invited me to dinner so I went to the room to crash for a few hours. Oops woke up at 11pm, stood them up and missed dinner. Oh well it’s my last night. They were very cool about it. There wasn’t as many people around that night which was kind of refreshing, the Scotsman was though in his Mankini (Borat) again, too funny. Traded contact info that night with a bunch of new friends, got hugs and kisses from the ladies and headed to crash at 5am again… Day 9 Wake up around 9am and get a phone call from Brant’s Shuttle service. There was a bit of a problem at the beginning of my trip. I went to meet Brant’s and then someone else took my bag from a different limo company. Steve and I had a chat about it the day of the Booze Cruze, he said he would make a call for me. So Brant’s said they were sorry about the mix up and offered me a free trip to the airport for the mistake. Steve you are the man! Make coffee for the first time there and chill out on the patio with a smoke. Nick walks by and hangs for a few and a cup of coffee. We laugh about the crazy trip as they were leaving the same day also. Cruise by the pool to say by and trade info with others. (I’m feeling sad now as I write this.) Head to the front desk to check out, no problem. Shuttle arrives and as he grabs my bag one of the doormen hold up a sign that says. “We miss you jonny waTTers 2T’s” . Off to Alabama. The End P.S. To all the great people I had a chance meet. Thank You!
