We did just that. 6" of snow was predicted for the morning of, but as luck would have it, no snow! We laughed at the meteorologists all the way up. After breakfast and settling in, we got about checking out some RVs. Here's the inside of one of them:
For instance, I could pretend like I'm driving. That's fun, except for the pretend jerkwad that was pretend driving in front of me, and pretend just cut me off.
I was more enchanted with these little pod campers than I was with the giant RVs. I especially like this retro-y turquoise one, and asked Clint if I could pull it with my Honda. He said no. So I didn't buy it.
It could handle this one, though. Look how googie!! As I was crawling in to give the thing a spin, a man next to me said "it looks like a casket." Ew. It felt like one too; just below my hips is a wall that you had to slide your feet under in order to squeeze in there. It can be yours for $5,495, but I'd recommend a refrigerator box on wheels. More spacious.
When I was done poking around baby campers, I posed with cardboard people. I couldn't talk Clint into playing along, but at least he was willing to run the camera.
We RV'd ourselves out, until it was time to make it back to the hotel for free cocktail hour. We are not a group that is going to miss out on free cocktail hour, no sirree. Bloody Mary's were perfect after being on our feet all afternoon.After that, dinner at Gibson's, and then back to the hotel atrium, where groups from our convention and from a neighboring scuba diving convention grabbed up tables, brought out coolers and socialized for the duration of the evening. Socialized = talking and hooting and hollering and laughing our heads off until midnight.
Sarah takes our iPods for a spin, and falls in love. She's ordered her own since then.
Clint declared himself Jewish for the evening, and wore the glass cover from the hotel room on his head.
Tammy is much more reverent during Art Appreciation than I am.
Here's another party across the way. We don't know these people, why am I putting them on my blog?
As I mentioned at the beginning of the blog, when you're in the big city, be sure to watch your drink. When my friend Melissa and I travel together, we keep our hands on TOP of our drinks in busy places, and we stand guard over one another's beverage if one of us ever has to leave the table. So, if you can't be around your drink, have your friends watch your drink.
