Took one to Austin with the new dog, who spent the first hour wagging his tail and anxiously awaiting the "park" we must be going to, and spent the next 9 hours giving me looks that clearly said: "Seriously, this had better be one Hell of a park we're going to."

All things told, we all enjoyed ourselves, but by the time we we're past Wichita on the way back it was time to be home.

Still, I'd take 10 hours in a car to Austin than 22 hours in a plane to Beijing anyday. blech.

Hailstones the size of canned hams are the worst.

Road trips are fun....sometimes. I've taken several with college friends that were amazing. Some with the family weren't nearly as fun though. This summer I'm going out west for a wedding. Taking a couple extra days for sight seeing though so it should work out just fine.

I think JoCo is in for hail the size of Klondike bars. OUCH!

Road trips other than to family? Yep - once to Texas, Arkansas, Oklahoma, and home; another to Tempe for Insight bowl via OK, NM, AZ, and back including TX. It was a blast!

Good one, R_I, a trifle on the obscure side, but good.

Hey RI - If you would bother to check the news you would know that Gore is probably heading to Asia to try to get these girls released. He has to have clearance from the State Dept (they were in talks about this last week). Even your beloved Faux News has reported this. Considering that the US has no official relations with N. Korea and Gore can't just go walk in and negotiate, this is all being handled behind the scenes. You just love having any little reason to try to slam Gore.

Man, I made a really bad decision this morning when I looked at the clouds, decided to chance it, and rode my scooter to school.

MultiD: Since I'm trapped here at school, ask and you shall receive. I like what the perspective on the first one does to his already enormous ears.

Al will have his private jet fly around & around over North Korea until the exhaust fumes block out the sun. Then, under cover of darkness, he'll release the ninjas.

I love road trips. I've gone from Oregon to Alaska. Fairbanks to Anchorage numerous times. Fairbanks to Washington to New Orleans to Mississippi to Oregon back to Alaska. Alaska to Canada to Haines to Washington to Kansas. Kansas to Oregon and then back to Kansas. There were many little ones in between but those were my most memorable ones.

Yep, I love road trips, I just can't afford them any more :o\

Sorry, sorry - mixed up RI with some of our rightie posters.

But still, slamming Gore over this. And the info is all over the news and the web.

I wouldn't take one of those in the ocean, it looks like it's the perfect size to be a whales beach ball. I can see them tossing it between one another laughing because of the screams coming from the inside of it. Reminds me of a cat toy I have...

I would love to be able to drive home in a Jeep Wrangler though! My Dad would be snagging it to take to the cabin on a consistent basis.

I love taking road trips!! We even travel to other parts of Kansas to see their roadside attractions and landscape. I'm an off the beaten path kind of girl.
