Just a thought for you guys.

My first try of 5-Hour Energy was during a 1,000-In-24 riding event based out of Fay Meyers in the Greenville Village, CO. (https://www.cofreewheelers.org/1000-in-24.html)

I was about five or six hours into the event before I broke out one of the two packs. First time trying this stuff and was cautious. Drank half at a gas stop in Durango and the last at the next stop around Grand Junction. No problem. I rode 1,160 miles for the route and back to the house in Fremont County in 22 hours and a half hours.

Not sure I've had a need for such an energy drink since, but it's an option during planning.

Check out this review. (I have no official connection with the product or the article)

Just sharing and would like to hear your experience with the 5-Hour Energy shot.

That's good to know. You alway wonder what that stuff does.
Although I must say that I do make strong coffee in the AM, as in espresso style with my Aeropress...

I tried 5 Hour Energy a few years back, and more than a few times to make sure my reaction was legit. That would be no reaction - zero. I never felt any boost, or elevated awareness, or anything... did not feel any different in any way. I suppose YMMV but since I felt no benefit from them, I stopped spending the somewhat pricey money for them. Truth is, I've also tried a couple of energy drinks as well (Monster and one other I can't recall the name of) and didn't feel much from them either, but I have always had a fairly fast metabolism too. Just my experience.

Helped a little to keep me awake for civil trials or long sentencings. Or maybe because it made me have to p.

I tried one once. The taste was better than expected. I didn't feel any extra energy or awareness, but I felt like my skin (everywhere) became instantly hot, especially around my face. Never again.

I only drink water and a little tea, so not a hardcore caffeine guy.
