I feel so alive. We got back from Springfield about an hour ago. It was a fun weekend and definitely worth it. I’m beginning to enjoy road tripping very much, although it does damage the checking account fundage. (Note: I still haven’t gotten any donations to my PayPal account… *sigh* [Also note: not really expecting it either...])
Cora, Keith, and I left Lincoln about 6PM on Friday. We made it to Springfield about midnight and went bowling. One of Cora’s cousins, Nate, lives in Springfield and his roommates were out of town this weekend, so the housing situation was pretty good.
Saturday we had lunch at Taco Bell. After bringing Nate home from his work (his car was busted), we went to Bass Pro Sports. That place was HUGE! I haven’t been to Cabela’s yet here in Nebraska so I can’t compare them, but this place was bigger then the mall in my hometown (population 80k). We went down to Branson, Missouri next. There were a couple different places we wanted to check out, but they were closed getting ready for their Christmas shows since it’s almost November. Mini-golfing was a great alternative. We drove back towards Springfield a bit later and ate dinner on the way at a little diner in Ozark. Yum! $7 for chicken strips, real mashed potatos, and corn. Finished watching Meet The Parents (from earlier in the day), had some frozen custard at Andy’s (my first time trying it. good stuff). Went around Springfield a bit seeing a skating rink, some dorms, and a bit of other stuff downtown. Watched True Lies before bed.
Sunday morning, merely woke up, had breakfast, and started driving.
It was pretty cool getting to talk to Cora and Keith a lot and getting to know them both better. I didn’t know Keith very well before the trip other then seeing him at dinner and around the dorm room. Now we know each other a bit better. Cora and I hang out a lot as it is, but it was also cool getting to learn a few new things about her and also just her being there.
So yeah. That’ll be the last random road trip I take for a while. If you know of any job opportunities, please email me. Latez!
