Checking In

I am still on vacation, visiting America's natural treasures, and supposedly disconnected from the world. However, Ryan went to get sparkling water to mix with my box wine and I discovered the hotel has intermittent wi-fi, so I thought I would make sure none of my guest bloggers have burned the place down. Oh, and I thought I would share just a few of the awesome things I have seen during my time away. Don't worry, I am not talking about the majestic mountains, or the cuddly bears; I mean, we have seen that shit, but who hasn't. I am talking about things like this...

Is that the best sign ever? It not only lets you know that the road is uneven, but it reminds you of the fact that, no matter how well things many be going, life will always suck. Oh, just in case that isn't enough for you, there is this sign too...

It was specially made for Lindsey Lohan's first national park visit. I wish I were kidding. Moving on, the absolute best thing I have seen on this trip was not in any of the parks, and WASN'T EVEN MADE IN AMERICA! Feast your eyes on this little beauty. I mean, unless your name is Tara and then you will just be ruining your birthday/slash Christmas present. That is how awesome this little item is...

There are no words, I know. You just have to stand back and experience the awsomeicity of that canteen. I was hoping to see a real unicorn in the park, it turns out they are extinct.

Okay, time to get offline, go sit on the porch, and feed the mosquito population of Idaho. Enjoy the final guest blogger tomorrow, and after we have all celebrated America's birthday by blowing up small parts of it.

I always loved the crap you could get at Yellowstone. Speaking of, I was walking along the Yellowstone River when I came across a giant pile of Bison poopie that had a footprint in it... a SMEARED footprint in it, like the person not only wasn't paying attention, but then slipped in the crap. I laughed until I cried. For hours.

Ha! I knew you couldn't stay away from here that long! Hey, where are all the freakin' good snacks in this joint? All I saw were tubs of hummus and wheat thins. Oh, and you might need to get some more shaving cream, FYI. And conditioner. Sorry.

Sam just said "Libby's like a GENIUS... Don't tell her I said that."

Trips are awesome. Especially when you find weird or funny crap along the way. It makes it all worth while, really.

The mosquito population of Idaho thanks you for the fresh blood. I now speak for them (even though I've never been to Idaho), I'm sure they don't mind.

Have a great trip. I'm like you. I can't leave my blog alone even when I'm gone.

I need that Extreme Rough Break sign to put on my front door.

That is quite the canteen. I honestly wasn't sure what it was at first, I thought that was a can of hairspray sticking out the top. Guess you could say I'm not much of a camper!

Yellowstone is such a wonderful place! And I love the weird crap they sell in their little touristy places! Hope you're having fun!!

I'm the world's most paranoid driver/passenger so if we were in the car cruising past those signs, I'd have Jeremiah stop the car and turn around. Extreme and rough don't calculate in my head.

Totally unrelated but, YOU WON! Please email me with your address asap (yes, I know you're on vacation and don't need to be ordered around by some random stranger).

Yay! It will make coming home that much sweeter! And hoopier!
