    My Trip Report

    We're heading for Venus...

    Oh wait, wrong final countdown. :rolleyes: Anyhow...

    After a couple of very long days of running errands and spending money, I'm on the downhill stretch for my permanent Vegas Vacation.

    The car is fixed, maintained, gassed up, trailer-hitched and ready to go. All of my junk is finding it's way into boxes or garbage bags, the road trip cd's are burned, and I'm busy drinking my way through my liquor cabinet so that I don't have to move any of it. Gotta get a fresh start and all... ;)

    I went by my old office to get some necessary paperwork and to say goodbye to the unfortunates I'm leaving behind, got a lunch appointment tomorrow, the big family send-off party this weekend, and a couple of dinner "dates" on Monday and Tuesday.

    I pick up the U-haul trailer and pack it on Wednesday morning, try and catch a few hours of sleep, and hit the road at 5am on Thursday.

    That means that I'll be living in Vegas a week from today! [​IMG] Hmmmm...gonna have to let that one sink in a little bit.

    Mikey - I saw the subject of your post - "The Final Countdown" - and the first thing I thought of was the song. How I laughed when I opened the post and saw "We're heading for Venus...".

    So who did that song anyway?

    Have a great trip, and remember, it's permanent. You won't be able to live every day in Vegas as if it's a vacation. At least I don't think you can. Your liver won't let you.
