So I don't even know where to begin. I just got home (its roughly 10am) from my high schools senior keg. Probably one of the craziest nights of my life to say the least.
Lets rewind 2 weeks back, when the keg is first being hyped up. 3 kegs and multiple cases were being claimed, and it only cost you 10 dollars for the night of your life. The location at this time was unknown (to the public) and some of us doubted a true "senior keg" seeing as many underclassmen new about it and planned on going.
Fast forward to 3 days ago, where i sit and contemplate whether i really want to go or not. Me and a few buddies thought, why not just do our own thing? Keep it safe. Seeing how practically the whole school new what was going down, it seemed pretty sketch...
Now fast forward to yesterday. I now have decided i was going, we all said fuck it, its sr keg, we gotta go. So i work a shift, and meet up with my friend at my house and chill out waiting to leave. Plan was meet at this one kids ranch right outside of town, and then continue onto the real location after that. As people gathered, numbers grew. Some people predicted around 100 and some said only 30ish. Ended up that around 60ish kids showed up, and we were off.
We drive on the freeway for about 10 mins, then get off and start the madness of dirt roads to this guys ranch, out in the middle of no where. As we drive, we see that there is no one on for miles, that it was perfect. We show up in a couple groups, and what we come to is amazing. 3 kegs, a huge horse troff FULL of beer (like the title says 10 cases aprox.), 3 makeshift beer pong tables made of plywood and hay bails, and a bonfire with couches and chairs surrounding it. It was perfect, and after everyone showed up, it was the best party ever.
So we arrived around probably 830-900ish and the some 60 seniors started to party hard. We joke how if cops came, we would congratulate them for finding us and making it seem like it would never happen.
Shit we were wrong.
So this property has a gate at the road, and we were about 2 miles into the property, where we thought we were safe from the cops. SOMEHOW they got the combo to the lock, and were now driving down the hill right towards us. They didn't have their lights on, but as they got closer we could see they were cops.
At this point, shit went nuts. Everyone scattered and just bolted into the hills of fields to avoid the dreaded MIP. I put a lit cigar out as i ran, and i sprinted up this huge hill and stopped with some people and laid down to avoid the cops spotlights. As soon as they stopped shining the lights, we were running again, past fence, over another ridge, and we stop in the bottom of a valley. At this point, we thought we were fucked. As time passed, we felt better about the situation. Phone calls were being made left and right, and finally at 12am, we were given the clear to come back to the fire.
A few kids stayed, mainly because they were sober, why run? Others hid in cars, but they were found. As they were writing up and MIP for one of my friends, the kid whose parents owned the land, called his parents and they talked to the cops. The cops had no warrant to come onto private land. So they voided the MIP for my friend and didn't give out any MIPs. But, they did take 2 FULL kegs and probably 3 more cases worth of beer from the troff.
As news spread, joy emerged. Sure, it wasn't the best outcome, but it was a lot better than it could've been. By about 2 am everyone was back, many went as far as the freeway (prob 10 miles or more) and some hid in the hills.
We all wake up this morning (after about 4 hours of sleep) and we all reminisce over the nights happenings, and clean up the place and head home. This night will defiantly go down as one of the most craziest nights i have ever had and the only senior keg to get busted with no MIPs. The party before the cops came was so epic, kid were taking pictures at the beginning when it was still light out, ill get it up as soon as i get it.
So thats my story.
