[road trip]

why are road trips so great? "because getting there is half the fun" -according to my friend clark. so for this final spring break, i wanted it to include a road trip somehow, although it'll only be a fraction of the week.

spring break for us, unofficially starts at 5:30 today, and tomorrow morning i'll be heading out into the unknown. i'll be squeezed into a small car with three other guys, who i like to call [3/4 gas money]. only one of these guys is a close friend, the other two are just acquaintances. i'm thinking this will actually help pass the time, as there's nothing better then a road trip to get to know someone. i have no idea what to expect on this very loosely organized trip, except that i'll get out of the confines of seaton for a week, which in itself is a vacation. i'd like to try [road blogging], but i have no idea how often i'll have an internet connection. we'll see, for now i'll end with a qoute from a great road trip movie.

"Everybody in the car. Boat leaves in two minutes... or perhaps you don't want to see the second largest ball of twine on the face of the earth, which is only four short hours away. "

Live it up...I recommend Jack Kerouac's On the Road as a great guide to a road trip!
