Planning Your Drink Checks

Know the beverage preference of your kennel-in-question: some prefer beer only and others don’t mind getting loaded on gas cans full of booze. If you’re pre-laying beer checks, be clever about hiding the beverages as well as being seen doing it; the worst thing, besides sobriety, on trail is a stolen beer check!
