Thank God I called THAT guy....


So I was planning on taking a trip to go see my dad in Allentown this summer. I figured if I was going to be gone for 27 months, I will have to start visiting my friends and family to say goodbye. "Gooooood Byyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyeee!"

Hemingway, I sent an email to my dad as I just found out he would be coming to our annual Doolittle 4th of July Extravaganza but for only a few days. "Well", thought I, "I would have no time to spend with him alone with my 80 thousand Doolittle relatives around!" And I guess my brother isn't coming due to work, so I wouldn't see him for 27 months either.

A trip to the coast is what I need! The East Coast! And although Denny suggested me tagging along with him in his big rig for a trucker road trip adventure, he couldn't guarantee I would get to the East Coast since it was his busy season. (but I AM still excited about taking a trucker road trip adventure as well....that just sounds fun!) So in the spirit of me leaving for 27 whole months, my dad bought me a plane ticket to come see him! And not that it wasn't INCREDIBLY generous of him buying me that ticket - I guess there is some truth into buying in advance, cause it wasn't that expensive!!! Only around $200 (for a 1 stop flight)! So as fate would have it, I will be spending the first 2 weeks in June in Allentown, PA. My dad said he would take me on his own work road trip and make stops such as Maryland, Philadelphia and Delaware....yeah....Delaware.....


Well, actually I would love to see Delaware! And all that stuff! I'm really excited! What should I do for 2 WHOLE WEEKS??? See Amish people? The Rocky Staute? The Liberty Bell? The Statue of Liberty? A mugging in Central Park? So many possibilities!!! I'm on a gravy train with buiscut wheels! I can't wait!!

Cool picture. I never realized your head was so big. Maybe thats why your not wearing a helmet? I bet it would be hard to find one that big.

` Arrrgh! My internet connection is failing again, but while I'm here I wanted to say how much I like this post! (And it's only the second try!)
` Please take a rocket to the West Coast sometime, too, won't ya?
` Well, I'll keep fighting the internet currents, though I'll probably disappear for another few weeks.
` Have fun hanging out with crazy Amish people! I hear they don't like bathing!

It's good that you get to see your dad before you head out.

Don't knock Delaware. It was the First State.
