    I was sitting at our campsite, exhausted and hurting, I looked at my honey and asked "tell me again why we do this" she just laughed and agreed with me that is was more fun to stay at a Courtyard Marriott.

    Camping is a hotel without room service or cable.

    Dear BAHA,

    Please approve Paisley's application to enter Belize ASAP. I will not sleep well until you do.

    P.S. We will be there in three weeks.

    Camping for me is a hotel room without a big bathtub. I'll do it, but I don't like to.
    It's been a long time since i slept anywhere NEAR the ground!

    To whom it may concern
    Sometimes it really IS worth it to pay 250 dollars for a plumber to replace
    your toilet's wax ring and clean up what leaked out.
    It's the first time I ever felt sorry for a plumber.

    Dear People on my about to start bike tour,

    Please, I don't want to hear about G-d, Mary Kay Cosmetics, or how many races you won this season. Don't tell me your political views, and please don't suggest I join you for drinks at the lunch stop. And hopefully, there won't be any wives doing lap dances on their DH's lap as we listen to the orientation.

    I wish DH hadn't googled all of the participants. He thinks it's funny, but now I know too much. And the lap dance thing really did happen when we went to Quebec. As well as the triathletes from Indiana who managed to ruin dinner on my first tour in Vermont by trying to talk to me about pro-life stuff.
    Yes, Virginia, you're in the northeast now...

    Just to be clear, not all of us in Indiana are anti-abortion or socially inept.

    Maybe you ought not not to participate in ridings with others like this if you are already fretting about how miserable you could be, and if it's a sentiment you frequently feel. By developing a negativity (early on or not) it is toxic to you which then might become toxic to others.

    Dear Newbie Seattlites,

    It's Sea Fair weekend.

    The Blue Angels are here. It's traditional. We like them. Yes, they are LOUD.

    They are loud enough to make your car alarm go off. Hear it? Yes, and you run outside to stop the alarm. Then the Blue Angels go over again. And your car alarm goes off again. And you run outside again.

    Rinse. Repeat. Ad nauseum.

    They'll be at it all day. Just like they were yesterday when they were practicing, and the day before when they were learning landmarks.

    Please, for the love of Mt. Rainier, turn OFF the car security system for the day.

    Thanks,
    Seattle Native.

    LOL. They show up at the Cleveland air show too, which is over Labor Day weekend. Classes are already in session by then. My alma mater's campus is directly below the flight paths. It's actually pretty funny if you're on campus the Friday before, because you can watch the freshmen freak out. DBF says he saw one girl dive into the bushes and then try to pretend nothing had happened...
