Another post got me to thinking: What was one or what were some of your most notable oh-to-hell-with-it-let's-go-to-_________ trips?? We made a number of unplanned, rather-last-second Vegas trips (and I had one particularly crazy episode during grad school), and turnarounds, but the coolest was Mother's Day weekend some years back. Terri was off somewhere with her mum and I'd gone down to Palm Desert to hang with my 'rents. I'd just tweaked my back so what was to have been a good bit of golf was out, so after sitting around staring at each other for 15 minutes, knowing I was gonna go batshitz, I said, "Let's go to Vegas." Being mum's day dad begged off, so in about 10 minutes I'd spoken with our host at TI and the old gal and I were in the Lead Sled -- I drove a Lincoln Mark VIII at the time -- heading for Vegas. But the winner was our last trip to New Zealand. We each received the weekly Sherman's or whatever travel-deal blast and w/i minutes Terri called from her office and said, "You see that?!?!" $399 rt to Auckland from LAX. That evening she was on the phone with her boss and I was online, and we were trying to match up dates that worked. A week later we were in NZ. Such spontaneity has ebbed with the relocation, though we have been here on a Saturday morn having breakfast only to have lunch in San Francisco or Monterey. You?
