out of town...

hey guys! im going out of town in about 3 hours from now. its a 2.5 hour drive, and im cruising out there alone and yeah- im nervous. im not meant to drive on highways. ive gotten into too many little accidents (most not my fault) and something usually happens when we go on vacation. everything from being pulled over, to my timing belt going out (300+ miles away from home!...thanks for picking us up, mom...and thanks for driving all the way there and towing my car home on your weekend off, dad!...even though you dont read my blog, heh.). anyway, yeah- we've also been rear ended on vacation, flat tire, yadda yadda the list goes onnnn and on. and this has only been in the past 3 years, since ive been with joe. but im used to flat tires and being rear ended so i guess im "prepared". ANYWAY- the plan is that im going to drive up to the campground today for one of their non-reservable sites and keep my fingers crossed that one stays unreserved from the time i call them before i leave, until i get there. joe and his friend are coming up later on tonight. (and 2 more friends from michigan might come out too...i hope so!) in the meantime, i will set up camp and go on a beer run. or two- depending on how long it takes them to get there. HA, kidding. only one beer run. the place is called devil's lake state park, its in baraboo wisconsin. it is our all time FAVORITE place to go- hehe, we havent been anywhere else really so i guess thats not really too great of a statement, but we've gone about 5 or 6 times and its just awesome there. i will post pictures when i get home. perhaps this is a good time for a flickr account? i dont know, we'll see! my photo capturing capablities are almost non-existant....i mean, i can TAKE a picture. its just not a good sight. but there is a chance that i will get all the way there and they will tell me "sorry, we're booked". if THAT happens, i dont know what i will do. come home? i dont know, it depends. its about 20 miles away from wisconsin dells, so theres always SOMETHING to do. we'll see. i know what my MOM would do...she'd hit up the big casino there. maybe i will too. but probably not.
okay okay, enough of that! i will talk to you all soooooon. take care and have a great weekend!

that park looks so gorgeous. Have a wonderful time and try and take lots of pictures! I need to live vicariously through someone else's vacation. :-)

Heh heh.

erin! i'm hoping that b/c we haven't heard from you, you managed to successfully secure a campsite. camping = such fun.

your (now my) trees moleskine arrived yesterday + its pages are already filling w/lists + ideas. love it.

katie, ⌘-Shift-3 = screen shot and ⌘-Shift-4 allows you to select a certain chunk of the screen to copy. at least, that's how it is on my mac. :)
