…signing on for this. The whole discussion is kind of a blur and I don’t remember all the details.
In two weeks, RR and I will be loading up the family truckster and heading out on our ‘Great American Vacation of 2008’. Where are we going, you ask?
Wyoming. The land of the flat, the free, the antelope playing, the bison and, for this year, the annual national fireworks convention. Our trip will be approximately 1,913 miles. One way. Need a visual? Click here. (sorry, I can’t get the map to appear here unless I do some serious plugin wrangling, which I tried for an hour on Tuesday afternoon. No work-y). To sum up, it’s a long fricken way to be stuck in a car. Even if you’re stuck with the love of your life…
Anyone have any suggestions on places to see while at highway speeds? I’ve been told that if I want pictures of my sock-in-progress for SOS 08 when we cross state lines, I’d better be prepared to take them while we drive past – that should give you an idea of how quickly RR is planning to get to Wyoming. I’m guessing that sleeping, peeing and eating are optional as well…
…and at least I’ll be able to blow stuff up when we get there to let off some steam. We’re on the safety team, too. Our motto for this year? Do as I say, not as I do. ;op
In other fibery news, I and some of my guild mates will be demonstrating spinning and knitting at the ‘Egremont on Parade’ event being held this Sunday the 27th from 11 to 4 at French Park in North Egremont, Massachusetts. If you live in the area or are near the area or feel like making a drive I would *love* to have more knitters and spinners join us. Apparently, the organizer of the event thinks I can’t scare up more than one fibery person (meaning that I’m the only one she thinks is going to show up. She’s amazed that I will need a 10×10 space for my people) and seeing her jaw drop would make me a very happy person. If you’d like more information, drop me a line via the comments or click on the ‘contact me’ link. Sorry for the short notice!
The photos are from my garden today – I decided to document my weeding progress. If you click on them you’ll see the lightbox magic zoom, if you click here, you’ll see the notes on flickr regarding what veggies are planted where.
