Just booked a trip to South Korea in April to meet my new granddaughter!
That was fun. Always good to remember bacon & booze is only a quick flight away
@drgridlock: United flight had to be diverted because it accidentally had a dog onboard https://wapo.st/2plDzYT
Getting ready to head out. This place is packed. The amount of cars and people at 130a last night was unseen by mookie. Even cities like Bangkok and nyc tend to thin a bit by then
Love worthless money.
Get in a cab and driver confuses Marriott with marriooooooot.
So we go over an extra 2 bridges and have to cut through a security gate, but mookie gets to see a street with coffee shops and the fare comes to 20 LE instead of 10 LE ($1.15 vs 60 cents)
Good to be paid in usd (for now).
If they drag you off the flight - $20,000? Kill the dog - $30,000??
Road trip time coming soon. FlagDUDETTE and I have 4 states in the lower 48 to reach together: North Dakota, Iowa, Nebraska, and New Jersey. Yes, I know the last one's fairly easy (not odd though, considering the 48th state for my vehicle was Delaware). So, the $64,000 question... any recommendations for things to do in the first three listed states? We'd prefer to go in the summertime, and I don't think we have UNO or UND on the schedule.
"The party told you to reject the evidence of your eyes and ears. It was their final, most essential command." George Orwell, 1984
"One does not simply walk into Mordor. Its Black Gates are guarded by more than just Orcs. There is evil there that does not sleep, and the Great Eye is ever watchful. It is a barren wasteland, riddled with fire and ash and dust, the very air you breathe is a poisonous fume." Boromir
"Good news! We have a delivery." Professor Farnsworth
If you really want to see something in North Dakota, see Theodore Roosevelt Nat'l Park (aka the Badlands). And if you play golf, play Bully Pulpit. It has three holes in the Badlands. Otherwise, don't bother.
Believe it. Earn it. Raise it.
Will have to return. Pretty neat place.
3 weeks in and I'm loving living in Germany. Hopped a train on Monday to Innsbruck for a quick 2 nights and some snowshoeing in the Alps. We're not going to buy a car, so we're relying on the public transportation system. While amazing and more often than not on time, I realize why so many Germans get all upset at it. Handful of "just roll with it" type of situations but we've been able to get where we've wanted to go.
Heading to Salzburg next weekend with some friends and then planning to hit up Prague in a month or so.
And you will feel Teddy's spirit--the urge to convert large areas of land from private ownership to federal in order to protect them.
