    Default 5 hr energy?

    So, my buddy Bill and I left W Yellowstone @04:30 Monday morning heading for home. About 9:00 I picked up my truck in Twin Falls and headed home solo from there...about 11:30 I get to Wells Nv and I'm outta gas in both me and the truck, so I stop and fill up and pick up one of those 5 hr little drinkies.

    wow...I mean WOW...in about 20 minutes I FEEL GREAT. My back doesn't hurt, my eyes are wide open and I could CARRY my truck home if I needed to. So, 4.5 hrs later the truck is empty again, but I'm still flyin...more gas, a burger and a coffee to go and I'm headed for home.

    Well, 18 hrs from start to finish, I drove straight thru...of course the next afternoon I went down for the count and slept 14 hrs straight.

    My conclusion: Next time maybe I'll drink 1/2 and see what happens...

    Trip report to follow in about 10 days...pics not available yet and I'm going fishing again.

    Mike,

    I had one of those when John & Pam Page were here, I actually got a sort of buzz off the thing. Yeah, I was awake but I said some pretty funny stuff once the potion took effect. Generally I say some funny stuff so maybe it just seemed funnier because of the buzz.

    It's one of those, you had to be there to appreciate the levity sort of things

    Anywhere can be the land of great expectations, broken dreams, or paradise found, it's all up to you.

    i dont drink coffee(allergic), but rather a 8 oz. can of redbu** almost daily. it does the job and ive grown to like it
    i tried a 5 hour drink a few months back and thought i was gonna have a heart attack! it worked well for an hour or so but then sent me into a frenzy. were talkin double vision, shortage of breath, heart rate increase

    in my opinion stay away from this sh*t

    Never tried that stuff and don't have plans to. It's jus tone of those things that seems to follow the rule of if it's too good to be true it probably is. When I need a dose of caffeine, I stick to a good cup or twelve of coffee

    Looking forward to the report.

    It must affect different people in different ways, what happened with me was a gasser. Think Arnold Schwarzenegger's voice and a roll of toilet paper being involved, it was funny stuff

    I've fished that stretch of the river and know well how big this baby could be.

    Those 5 hour energy drink does work. =). One time when i was driving for the entire family from Atlantic City heading back north to Central Nj and it was late at night. I am tired and sleepy and i chug down the whole bottle. Loke about 15 minutes, my eyes are wide open. While the kids where playing in the back, i was screaming playing along with whatever guessing game they have. My wife got upset and told me tone down my voice and next time just take half a bottle so that i wont behave like a teenager. LOL

    Have you read the contents? It has a equivalent of 15 cups of caffein in it, thats why it makes your heart palpitate and you will feel short of breath.

    Be careful with them if you are not a coffee drinker.
    Don't eat fish... eat more chik'n

    I can attest to Ard's humor after taking a dose of '5 hour energy.' He's funny anyways, but he was quite funny driving home from the Kenaii at about 2 in the morning.

    I like the little bottle, they don't make me jittery and really don't overly buzz me, infact on long road trips home after fishing all day I'll drink one and get a Starbucks or Monster canned coffee to sip on and I'm good to go until I get home.

    Be careful with energy drinks. They can turn you into this person.
