    My Trip Report

    So after a long week, preceded by a long week I needed a quick road trip...

    Packed a duffle bag, threw it in the truck and headed for the Almost Paradise Downtown Grand on an offer. I think all I get is the room - doesn't matter. On the drive up the I-15 I thought of all of the things I mindlessly forgot. Luckily my anti-seizure medication is in my limited baggage.

    Among the things I forgot...

    • Toothbrush
    • Belt (guess I'll be baggy butt for 48 hours)
    • Deoderant
    • Cash
    • A plan
    • That I have a mtg on Tuesday. (cough, cough)

    I'm sure I'll think of more items soon enough.

    The drive up the I-15 was smooth except for an 8 mile backup from an accident in both directions that the Waze App took me around. Managed only one stop which is a record for me (I usually pee in the middle of my beer and the end of my beer).

    So, since I have no plan, let's low-roll, baggy butt gamble! But, first a walk from to stretch out these driving legs. Oh yeah, that's a requirement since I have no cash yet! Do you think a fat middle aged man can find an ATM around here?

    :thumbsup:

    Am I missing the bad part of the first pic?

    2nd goes without saying, but that's just the way Fremont is now.

    You can be a baggy butt, but I hope you bought a toothbrush and toothpaste bc otherwise you're as bad as the 2nd pic of "baggy breast lady"

    This is why I keep a bathroom kit permanently packed in my carry on bag. I audit it at the end of each trip to see if I need more toothpaste, deodorant, whatever. I replace whatever is running low and immediately repack it so it's ready for the next trip. Maybe something to consider.

    I think the first pic was a mistake he meant to post the second pic.

    Actually I'm digging tiara girl.
