Planning a Mancation for June?

It’s really pissing me off that the expanded mancation planner is not functioning properly, but the world goes on.  So here is a list of the amazing events going down this June.  If you are looking for something to do this month the hardest part will be choosing which one to do.  There are epic motor races, beer and wine festivals, music concerts, down home and international sporting events, and competitions for all types of participants.

Researching all of these trips has led to some fun and interesting finds in addition to the old favorites.  For the adventurous off-road type, the Rhino Charge was an interesting one to come across.  It is an off-road driving event that anyone with the means can enter.  Held in Kenya since 1989, the money from the event benefits Rhino Ark, the Kenyan conservation charity.  This one would probably take a full year of logistical planning to pull off, but the real adventure and reason to raise money to save some rhinos while you’re at it  would be an awesome goal.  Plus it would give you and your bros a reason to get together and practice or plan (ie, drink beer) all year.

On the other hand, if you want to just get plain stupid then the annual Cheese Rolling at Coopers Hill in Gloucestershire is the man trip for your crew.  Taking place on June 4, it’s not so much the actual cheese rolling as the part where everyone then chases the cheese down the hill that gets nuts.  So get some pints in you to stay loose and charge it!
