Country Roads

This labour day weekend had a bad start...thats cause it started very very early. Five of us rode out towards John Denver’s mountain momma at 7 in the freakin morning and man, was is it a long drive. Thank god it was a good group o boys and girls else no one would have lasted.
(Though just between you and me, the diversity in the music was very very difficult to take and I am anything if choosy in that area. Ah well, worse compromises have been made....)

It was a white wafter rafting trip, yes sir, and we had rented this kick ass lodge somewhere in West Virginia with its own hot tub and what not. Ah the pleasures this money thingy can buy.

I actually thought white wafter rafting would be crazy with huge whirlpools and waterfalls to be navigated. Who’d have thought that its a “slightly” toned down version than that, but a load of fun still. People were falling off the raft, jumping into water and we even had our own pirate like boarding of another raft...

and back at the lodge, so much drinking and so much laughing and other silliness continued...West Virginia sure has its unfair share of natural beauty and was even compared to Switzerland by one in the group who had much travel experience in her bag. Putting America in the same league as Europe - Sacrilege I said!

oh and by the end of the trip I was told that my sense of humour is up there with the best..cest moi? - One just cocked his head, laughed, shrugged and got on with making other people’s lives happier :)

A Calvin & Hobbes quote to start things happy today...

"I'm a simple man, Hobbes."
"You?? Yesterday you wanted a nuclear powered car that could turn into a jet with laser-guided heat-seeking missiles!"
"I'm a simple man with complex tastes."

Good to meet a fellow Calvin fan! Simple man indeed..If not for him, who would make our day a lil more "surreal"..?! ;)
