Road Trip!

road trip
I’ll totally be on the Interstate the entire time and it won’t look this pretty.

As I do every summer, I head west today for my annual week of trouble making with family and friends in Illinois.

There will be lots of pool time, loud music, day drinking, excessive tequila consumption, Mississippi River boating, and probably even some cool stuff I haven’t thought of yet.

While this is all happening, I will also be an attentive father. (I promise.)

What is, however, in question, is to what degree I will concentrate on writing blog posts and responding to comments. There aren’t many opportunities in life to shirk 95 percent of daily responsibilities without consequence, but this one week per year at my dad’s excellent and well-stocked home grants me that luxury.

I can’t promise to adhere to my regular posting schedule for the next nine or so days, and acknowledge that exactly zero people will lose sleep over it, but I wanted to mention it anyway.

I like writing here and won’t intentionally neglect it. But for at least one week, I’m not going to force it either.

See you when I see you!

  1. sounds fantastic. enjoy.

    at least we won’t worry about alien abduction or rapture. you’re just busy drunkenly floating down the mississippi…

    1. The fun is often involuntary.

      You just sip the drinks and joke about everything and it’s like magic.

  2. Woo Hoo….. Summer vacation…
    I may lose 30 minutes of sleep over this predicament but will survive .
    Miss your posts already!
    Have an amazing vacay….

  3. I just got back from doing the exact same thing in Colorado. Have a great time making memories!

    1. I originally hail from the Quad-Cities (first four years of my life), and to the Quad-Cities, I am returning as I have a couple times per year forever.

      I’ll wave to you and Val when I’m stuck in Friday evening Chicago suburban traffic.
