This afternoon, my brother and I are heading out on a nice little drive from the bay area to Springfield MO. According to Mapquest, it should take us approx 27 hrs to complete the 1875 miles.
When we were talking about this trip, it actually sounded fun. We’d hang out, stop and see some sights, take some pictures and get a visit in with my mom.
Of course the planning is always more fun than the doing in these types of trips and now that I’ve spent the last two days coughing and hacking and dealing with a cold, the thought of spending almost 30 hours in a truck sounds just insane. The really crazy part is we were even sober when we hatched this idea....
And it’s not like we’re going to be able to relax a whole lot while we’re there either since we both have to be back at our jobs by Monday.
So, what sounded like a fun little road trip is now sounding like, get in the truck, sit for 27 hours, visit for a day and half, get back in the truck and sit for another 27 hours and then arrive home just in time to get ready to go to work on Monday…..gee this will be fun!!!! (did I mention they're predicting rain and snow in Springfield?)
