On the road again

Well, it's almost time for my first extended road trip with a toddler onboard. To complicate matters, my wife is 5-1/2 months pregnant with our second child. However, I'm nothing if not stubborn. We WILL have fun. :-)

Where are we going? The family is off to the square dance capital of the world. And no, that is not the reason we're going. One of my wife's best friends moved back home to Branson, MO, before we got married and I mentioned that this might be a good time for our family to visit. The friend hasn't seen our son up close and personal, having to make do with lots and lots of pictures via email. The esteemed spouse was exceptionally pleased by my suggestion, which was kind of the point. She's been missing her friend something fierce. Besides, it'll be a good chance to see parts of the country in ways that you just can't do while flying at an altitude of 35,000 feet. We'll stop by Graceland to tip our hats to The King before continuing on. I'll also play the tourist in St. Louis by riding up in the Arch. Sure it sounds geeky, but, well, what else did you expect from me?

There's still some planning to do(finding hotels with cribs, for instance) before we hit the road, but we're ready other than that. Posting will be non-existent during that time. I've got another week to add more tripe to this site. Stay tuned for still more wastes of time.

I can't handle tripe withdrawl!

Somewhere out on the road, please kill a hippy and steal his internet connection.

And is the beer going out before you leave?

I've been meaning to post about that batch. I've been waiting for a certain, umm, flavor to mellow and it just hasn't happened. What I finally decided was to ship one bottle of my stuff and one bottle of something commercial. Hey, something has to taste good.

Sorry to take so long, but aging beer can be tedious. In this case, it's apparently pointless as well.
