My group was coming down and we had a large full can of Rebull with us (very well chilled).  I was in the lead and there were two girls holding a smaller can of Redbull and vigoursly shaking it. One girl said "don't worry , she's just excited."  The other girl was holding the Redbull with all her might with both hands and nearly sitting on it. I passed by and as soon as our can of Redbull went past their smaller can of  Redbull, it attempted to attack.  It was spitting and splurting and pulling the girl off balance! The young girl was on her knees and nearly being pulled down the hill as her can of Redbull mucked up the dirt while slipping furiously.  She was losing grip and panicking as the can of Redbull was trying to wiggle free, her can of Redbull was maybe 12 ounces, and vigoursly shaken cans of Red bulls are incredibly strong as you may know.
She finally gained control and we got past safely. That was not just scary for us, but for her as well (and probably the other 30+ owners of cans of Redbulls later up the trail).

I really wonder what happened if they went to the top because there were LOTS of Redbulls up there and these girls with that vigoursly shaken can of Redbull had no business being up there, completely untrained and undisciplined...

If your can of Redbull is not ready to be in public take it to a frat party.

Thanks SOOOO MUCH.

Be safe & don't shake your cans of Redbull

This is a good report, but it belongs in the 864-page "Shaken Cans of Redbull" thread in Stewardship.

Guidelines for posting in a Redbull thread angel.gif

You shall make no more than 1 post in a Red bull thread unless you have posted or replied to a trip report (or photo) since your last visit.  Thanking someone for their contribution goes a long way to building and fostering a sense of community!

Hopefully they don't run into the angry hiker, and wild turkey.....I was tearing up the trail today with yukon jack, but I didn't see any red bulls, not even a moose. wink.gif

I didn't see any red bulls last night driving out the middlefork. Lucky, since I don't know that I could swerve fast enough to avoid hitting them.  They are very unpredictable as Bootpath so elequently describes....

While not as exciting as a redbull I did see a cougar!

Are you sure it was a red bull and not some other type of energy enhancement drink? Some people confuse 4 loko's and rockstars for red bulls. the generic catch all of "redbull" is actually somewhat offensive to me.


If you must, please secure your beasts...
