#3 The Best Layed Plans!

They say if you want to make God laugh just tell him your plan. Well God just busted a gut and is rolling on the floor at our expense. That month long trip to NY is on hold. The truck had fuel system issues but we found someone to fix it in time for our trip.The only problem is we would have to pay to have the parts overnighted from California! Oh well, you do what you have to do to save the vacation. Then Mary's motorcycle takes a dump on us.You can't go to a major motorcycle rally without your motorcycle. Well, you could, but where's the fun in that. Trying to change reservations, get the truck fixed, see if the bike can be repaired in time to salvage the vacation...BRAIN IS ABOUT TO EXPLODE!!!!!!!!

Oh well, I guess it wasn't meant to be. Mary says it's a sign or an omen. I say that trying too hard to make a bad situation better sometimes just makes it worse. The Americade Rally has been going on for 25 years so it should be there next year.

We are still taking a week off to get the truck and the motorcycle fixed. Then we will fix us a little. A movie here, a day trip there, and margaritas every night. We might even tackle a project or two while we are off (don't bet on it). I'm planning on just enjoying the time off. We will probably make plans for some future travel and see if we get a little chuckle from up there.

We're not on the road but...
Home is still where we park it
