UPDATE: Hmm, well the repsonse has not been too good. So far I’ve received from David: “Michael, I love you. But I have no desire to go to Wyoming.” and from Joz: “Um. You don’t know me very well, do you.” I’ll be sure to post my other responses here as well.
I’ve been wanting to take a trip to Yellowstone National Park since the beginning of the year. And here it is mid-August and I’ve done nothing. If I wait too much longer, the snow will start falling — and I am not about to go driving around in some wilderness on mountains in snow. I saw Misery. I know what happens.
I talked to my Dad (being that he grew up in that general area) about it, and he said it will probably start getting chilly in early-mid September. That’s ok, I don’t mind the cold. I’ve been to Yellowstone several times before, always, it seems, in the Winter — and yes, it can be bitingly cold. But they DO have hot springs in the area (which are so lovely, except for the occasional spike of sulfer).
So I’ve been doing some research, and I can get a car for about $17 a day (which is fab), and it would take about 7-8 hours to drive from Boise, Idaho to Wyoming (as Continental does not fly into Jackson Hole). That’s all reasonable. So I’m thinking — fly out on Thursday, Come back on Monday … That’s doable. And then I hit Yellowstone and i can hike and take pictures and fornicate in the wilderness. LOL – yah, or maybe not. Unless there are some hot beefy burritos of manhood choppin’ trees … but even then … LOL, I think I’d rather just stare.
But, I’m really sorta kind’a not wanting to go by myself. I mean, sure, getting back to nature is nice and all — time to myself, etc. But bitches. I live alone. I don’t need THAT much time to myself. So — anyone wanna go with me to Wyoming? It’d be great fun. (And all I can think of when I think of hiking in Yellowstone is that line from Priscilla — “Oh great. Just what this country needs: a cock in a frock on a rock.”) The drag is not requisite to come (although I imagine it would be great fun. 🙂 ). So … anyone? Anyone?
