Final Vacation Post (Read Below)

Okay, so I CAN'T fix the spacing. Somebody mentioned a float attribute? How do I change that?

Anyway, where we left off on the road trip:


After leaving the Redmonds, we had to drive east to Pocatello, Idaho - literally on the other side of the state. I want to again repeat that Idaho is gorgeous. Several of my pictures demonstrate this, but you really have to see it to believe it - and the towns with populations of 400/300/200/100 aren't that bad, either. About midway through, we managed to snag ourselves another driver - Steve, whose debut performance was when he tagged along with John & Brandon that one time we got lost in Malibu, and ended up at a Hindu temple.

So, after driving past the funnel cloud, we made it to Pocatello - an empty college town. Jeremiah McCarroll lives in a downstairs basement, and is hoping for a job. it was kind of sad that we could only stay overnight, and we're all considering giving him more company next year.

And then Brandon looked out the window to where some poor random girl was unloading her car. He began to make comments about how he should marry her - i.e., run out from the building shouting "MARRY ME!!!!" When she suddenly opened the trunk and climbed in! Naturally, this inspired the rest of us to peer at the window. Then she saw us, and we jumped down out of sight with much loud shouting.

Do I have to mention that the car disappeared in under ten seconds?

So, we spent the evening playing Lord of the Rings Risk. I love killing hobbits. Killing hobbits is fun. I still lost, though.

After leaving, the three of us motored through Utah - since absolutely nothing happened during those four hours (except for being mobbed by Mormons with shotguns, but that's another story entirely), and Arizona didn't have much, either. However, this leaves out Nevada, and Las Vegas.

Brandon: "John, what's a Flamingo dancer?"

Me: "It's not a pink bird."


Upon reaching my house (After dropping off poor, beleagured Steve), we realized that we had travelled over 900 miles in one day.

In conclusion, this was actually a great vacation - I look forward to trying to plan one like this next year, if at all possible. Maybe I'll have more free days, then.
Comments:
For the spacing I would switch to a different theme and then switch back, that should fix it.
