I really don’t have words to adequately describe the festivities from this weekend. Suffice to say that my wife and I were happy to reach the casa de Ahab upon our safe return last night around 2am.
There have been some valuable lessons that I picked up, in addition to the previous lessons I mentioned.
1. I64 in West Virginia is a lot of fun to drive if you A) have a good car, and B) it’s not raining. It was raining on our way to VA, which caused that section of the road to be somewhat stressful. Yesterday it was sunny and dry, which caused me to really enjoy that part of the road.
2. The Subaru Forester isn’t a good car, it’s a great car.
3. Hard liquor doesn’t mix well with small men who can’t hold their alcohol. (ed: not Ahab in this instance)
All in all, it was a fun trip – it was good to see some old friends and have the opportunity to make some new friends as well.
