    As summer draws to a close for many people with kids, what was the best summer you ever had and what year?

    For me, 1989 had a great job working outside in the sun all day on summer break from Oregon. Great tan, I was 21 would go out drinking every night with college friends many times just on a golf course or in a field with 10-15 peole and a cooler of beers. Dated a lot of good looking girls all summer, and many of my friends worked around New England like on the Cape or in Vermont and we would road trip on weekends to party with the friends they had made. I was in great shape, strong, dumb enough to not understand or be scared of the world and ready for anything.

    Kinda knew it couldn't get much better at the time and loved every second no responsibilities and a calm before going back to college for my junior year.

    Think of it every summer and hope my kids have one like it too someday.

    What about you?

    Gotta be the summer of '91 when I was 11. The last summer truly free of responsibilities... before I started working.

    The summer of '82. I was 14-15 and it was the last summer I didn't have a job.
    All day long I swam and fished, blew off firecrackers and smoked cigarettes or the occasional dirt-weed doobie. I had a dirt bike to get me around the county. I sorta had a girlfriend.
    Gas was only about $1/gallon. Cigarettes were 75 cents/pack out of the machines. Heavy metal music was in it's infancy and concert tickets were only $15-$20.
    I've never been much of a summer person, but as far as summers go, that was a good summer.

    Summer, 1986. I lived in OCMD with three friends from college. We are lucky we made it out alive.

    Hard to say as I'm thinking about it as an adult. I'm guessing there were multiple summers of young childhood fun in which no later summer could really compare if we were measuring pure enjoyment. But I can no longer relate to innocent fun and keep thinking back to the summer after graduation. I spent the summer getting high, hanging out with friends without a care, working shitty meaningless jobs, buying smokes for $2 and gas for a $1 and having sex and getting blown for the first time (and then a bunch of times). It's crazy to think back at all that happened over that few month period. Especially now that nothing happens in my life and a 5 year period gathers nothing of note (well, not positive, anyway). If I could live in an endless loop of that summer, I'd be a happy person instead of what I am. Or give me any time between 3 and 6. Basically, I've thoroughly enjoyed 3 years of my life.
