Rock On A Bus

Postby Rock_dash on Sun May 28, 2006 12:23 pm

In case anyone's interested, I'm leaving for my three day oddysey. I'll have my cell phone, and I'm planning to call the Kolters at each stop, assuming it's not too late. They can keep you updated on my progress. Maybe it'll be funny or somethin'...I dunno...

Eighteen hours all in all including bus and three planes.

And Joel says I should try to stay awake through most of the trip so I'll be able to sleep the night before the cookout. @_@

I thought we had enough to fly you, Rock?

Well, my advice for taking long bus rides is to avoid anything smelling of pee. :) See you in a few days, paisano.

The price of rock's plane ticket was going up hourly, literally. And we had exactly enough at that hour, with a two day wait until the money actually became available.

In other words, we wouldn't have had enough money when the money came available.

The bus tickets were on the rise too, but were currently cheaper and we could afford them without the money we were waiting on. So, that's the option he ended up with.

That reminds me, I have to do that donation thing.
