If you'd said to me Thursday, "hey Spleeness, what are you doing this weekend? How would you like to work 15 hours, arrive home at 1:00am, pack until 4am, get up at 8am to start heavy labor and consume nothing but a single dry calcium pill until late afternoon, and then embark on a 9 hour road trip?" I might have refused to join you in your fun.
Yet that's exactly the rolicking good time I had. But we're on the road and heading west!
