Road Trip

Well boyz and girlz, ladeeeeez and gentz

I'm off to see the Wizard! The Wonderful Wizard of Oz!!!!

Well, not really. Not even close, actually.

At this time tomorrow, if all goes according to the plan, I'll be leaving for South Carolina to meet Esther.

I'm driving the roughly 15 hours it takes to get there, and plan to do most of my driving at night, when there is less traffic and traffic jams to deal with. I'm planning to make the trip without checking into a hotel along the way.

Don't you worry, though. I'm not going to attempt to drive for 15 hours straight. There will be meal and pee stops as necessary and more than likely one stop, for an as yet undetermined period of time, to catch some z-z-z-z-z's in my car.

The most important stop en route though, will be to freshen up a wee bit before I arrive, so I won't look quite as frumpy as I'm sure I'm gonna look and feel when I finally get there.

"You never get a second chance to make a first impression."

This was a line from an old soap/deodorant/cologne commercial that has stuck with me through the years. How true it was then and how true it is now. Funny thing about truth. It never gets old or goes out of style.

This will be another traveling first for me. I've never spent any meaningful time in the great state of South Carolina. Only once have I ever been to South Carolina and that was when I was a wee-small lad and drove to Florida with the fam in the late 1970's. But that's a whole 'nother story for a whole 'nother time. (Or NOT!!)

I will be posting next on Wednesday night from South Carolina.

'Til then people, I'm outta here.

and whether it works with esther or not (and hopefully it does of course) you should love SC. I loved living in Charleston lots of good seafood.

nonsense d. green being an extremely literal xian would surely have noticed one or two bits in his book about no sex outside marriage.

(this is where he now tells us that this part is (conveniently) metaphorical.)
