Weekend Conclusion

February 14, 2010 Leave a comment

4 days, 12 hours of sleep, 14 hours spent waiting in airports, 22 hours in a minivan with 6 other people, 7 hours spent in flight. 12 hours spent getting ready for, participating in, and celebrating one of the greatest weddings ever.

1 Jose, 1 Anita, 1 marriage.  1+1=1.

Easily the most entertaining and heartfelt Best Man speech I’ve ever heard. Quite possibly the largest wedding party known to man.

Only the most perfect of times to escape the snow-riddled East Coast/Midwest. Only the worst of times to fly across the country. The “perfect storm” for the most epic road trip in history, the perfect people to share it.

All for Love.

Love believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things.


Adventure Is Not Dead

Well, SteveD should probably be posting this instead of me, but I will pre-emptively steal his thunder and give you the breaking news of the evening.

Nearly all flights leaving our of Dulles International Airport in the DC area have been canceled. With the wedding in San Diego fast approaching, many friends in the area are left scrambling for an alternative way to get out to the West Coast before Saturday. Some are trekking to nearby airports, some are hoping to catch other flights, but some…some are crazy. And awesome. And crazy.

At this very moment, 6 or 7 friends are hastily preparing for a coast-to-coast road trip from Virginia to California – Lewis & Clark style…except in a minivan. Their trek begins tonight & ends on Friday night sometime. In an instance where most would simply give up or look for an easy path, SteveD, his beautiful bride, and others are taking action and making it happen.

Here’s to the safety of their drive, and Godspeed to them on their journey that takes them right along the border of Mexico…Let’s hope they don’t get kidnapped by Cheez-It-seeking banditos, or other…uh…bad things.

To be honest, I wish I could go with them. In reality, a 43 hour drive might kill me…or my friendships with the other people in the car. In any case, keep them in your prayers, as well as the couple getting married this weekend.
