Yay - looking forward to following along.
That's always my favorite part!I will attempt to drum up interest by ripping off movie quotes and even fabricating stories about exploding helicopters in the narrative.
Nah... just the clown in the Eagles shirt.Here are the people you’ll be making fun of:
Well, apparently no international incident took place of a significant nature if you're writing this TR now.Our trip to the Pacific Northwest began on July 24, 2019. We flew from Baltimore, MD to Seattle and would end up spending 13 days on the road, exploring the Northwest corner of the U.S. We even invaded Canada for a bit. But that’s a story for another chapter.
He was wearing the Eagles shirt and we thought he had been punished enough so we let him return to the US.That's always my favorite part!

Dang! Too late!!!If you’re new to these, you may want to save yourself the pain and agony and just hit your browser’s BACK button now.
And eat as many PB&Js as possible. Don't even bother to deny it.We are a family of six, and we usually attempt to cover a lot of ground in order to see as many points of interest as possible,
Wait... you're not???I will attempt to frame these logistics in such a way that I appear to be a near-genius-level vacation planner, worthy of universal praise and admiration.
This is a given.You will all make fun of me as we stumble from one destination to the next.
Hah! My family doesn't read my drivel.My family will read each chapter and yell at me for forgetting details in each chapter.
I will attempt to reverse-engineer those details into the story somehow in a desperate attempt to save the trip report.
Untrue.You will all lose interest and start having side conversations in the comments that will be more interesting than the TR itself.
Again, I doubt most will move on.It will fail, and eventually most of you will move on to other, more interesting trip reports.
And again! I doubt there'll just be three left. I'm gonna say five... okay, maybe four.I will finish the report with three readers left, all of whom are mostly hanging around to make fun of me.
I've met (almost) all of them!Here are the people you’ll be making fun of:
Nice save.Julie (23 +/-),
Woot!We live in the great state of Delaware, the very first (and best) state in the entire United States of America. We’re #1! We’re #1!
I had to Google.State Bird: The Fightin’ Blue Hen Chicken. (no, I’m not making that up)
Actual Google Search item found when doing research for this TR: Is Delaware real?
Ah yes.Unofficial State Motto: Delaware. So Close To Where You’d Rather Be.
Yeah but you're cheating by living there.I know where that is!!!!!!!!
Don't worry, Darcy has you covered.I believe in miracles! Where ya from you......erp...never mind. Wrong song!
You must have low standards for your weeks!Seeing a new trip report in the works just made my week!!
Jen!Yay - looking forward to following along.
Well done, sir.I believe in miracles
Where you from
You sexy thing, sexy thing you
I believe in miracles
Since you came along
You sexy thing
You're not kidding. I got very old very quickly.Yes I can. Boy your kids are growing up fast.
Who doesn't like explosions?That's always my favorite part!
Getting an early start, I see.Nah... just the clown in the Eagles shirt.
That's because we are excellent spies. Or nobody cared. One of those.Well, apparently no international incident took place of a significant nature if you're writing this TR now.
If nothing else, they did beat the Jets this year.He was wearing the Eagles shirt and we thought he had been punished enough so we let him return to the US.
Wow, cool! Acadia is one of the places we didn't quite reach with our kids. Hope you're having a great time!Up early this morning (we are in Ellsworth, ME) before a day in Acadia NP...thrilled to find a new CO trip report!! Looking forward to reading along.
We (myself and my 14 yr old daughter) are attempting all 50 states before she starts college. Checking off #26 tomorrow!
pkondz! And now you're stuck here. Bwahahahah...Dang! Too late!!!
That's where the "cheapness" comes into play.And eat as many PB&Js as possible. Don't even bother to deny it.
Well, not all of the time. Maybe 96% of the time.Wait... you're not???
Sadly...yep.This is a given.
Consider yourself blessed!Hah! My family doesn't read my drivel.
Won't lose interest in the TR or in making fun of me?Untrue.
We won't lose interest.
The rest of that statement is completely accurate.
I typically have far more respondents at the beginning than at the end.Again, I doubt most will move on.
Sounds about right.And again! I doubt there'll just be three left. I'm gonna say five... okay, maybe four.
But yes, we will make fun of you.
And somehow survived to tell the tale!I've met (almost) all of them!
Oh, I don't know. It seemed like enough for North Dakota.Woot!
Been there too.
And... to be honest, it wasn't enough time. A drive through is not enough for anywhere, I think.
Still... like you say, it counts.
As mascots go...it's hard to be proud of that one.I had to Google.
That's funny.Ah yes.
Similar to my first northern posting.
I won't say the name of the town to avoid offending the people there, but...
"_____ it's not hell, but you can see it from there."
Yeah! Cheater!Yeah but you're cheating by living there.
pkondz! And now you're stuck here. Bwahahahah...
So there's that 4%...Well, not all of the time. Maybe 96% of the time.
Or ignored. Either, or.Consider yourself blessed!
Won't lose interest in making fun of you.Won't lose interest in the TR or in making fun of me?
This is a truism.I typically have far more respondents at the beginning than at the end.
Ah. Point well taken.Oh, I don't know. It seemed like enough for North Dakota.
I closed my browser and cleared my cache....still came back. Ugh!And now you're stuck here. Bwahahahah...
I vote for the latter.Won't lose interest in the TR or in making fun of me?
Or Montana...driving across Montana is dull/boring/monotonous also.Oh, I don't know. It seemed like enough for North Dakota.
Huh? Did you hear something?Or ignored. Either, or.
Yes. Take the elevator at the Hollywood Tower Hotel. Go to the 15th floor. When you drop, get out at the basement and see the receptionist there.Hello? Someone said I could my parking validated here?
I have a bad feeling you might be taking endless shots at me after Sunday Night's game.
Which seems to take up 96% of the story.So there's that 4%...
Yep, a strong possibility.Or ignored. Either, or.
I suspected as much.Won't lose interest in making fun of you.
Dan! As long as you spend $50 in the gift shop, you should be good to go.Hello? Someone said I could my parking validated here?
Oh good, the virus is working.I closed my browser and cleared my cache....still came back. Ugh!
I knew it.I vote for the latter.
Depends on which part of Montana.Or Montana...driving across Montana is dull/boring/monotonous also.
I don't know, I wasn't paying attention, either.Huh? Did you hear something?
Too much work. I'll just feed the meter.Yes. Take the elevator at the Hollywood Tower Hotel. Go to the 15th floor. When you drop, get out at the basement and see the receptionist there.
aboard! I like having a fellow map nerd around. I've always been fascinated with them as well.Hooray! A new trip report! If I were scoring, I would award bonus points for the title.
I’ll hang on until the end because I love seeing the map (I’m a map nerd). Can’t wait to hear about all the PBJs consumed in interesting places...
Sitting on that side makes it harder to reach the payment machine.That doesn't work if you have a right hand drive car. If you do you have to pay for your own parking.
So we've got that going for us, which is nice. I wasn't sure if any of those folks were truly household names (well, I guess Heimlich is). We could also throw a few DuPonts out there, along with Aubrey Plaza and Frank Masley, the Olympic luge specialist.Don't forget George Thorogood, Caesar Rodney, and Dr. Henry Heimlich. Take pride in the fact that a native son developed a maneuver which forces one to regurgitate chunks of food to everyone's delight. Looking forward to the report as my family of five stumbles through planning our first trip west of Pennsylvania.
