Ok so I'm leaving today for Spring Break.

When most people my age go on Spring Break they go to Cancun, St. Petersburg, the Bahama's...

...I'm going to Kansas. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-indifferent.gif

Oh yea and I have a 23 hour and 40 minute bus ride to get there http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_frown.gif and today at 9 am, before I even go, I have to go sit through three geology speeches. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/bigtears.gif Anyway, hopefully my MP3 player, portable DVD player, cellphone (internet YaY!) and PSP will be enough to keep me occupied.

Wish me luck.

El Paso. And I agree that amount of time is rediculous. There are a few layovers which accounts for some of the time. Two that are 30 minutes, one that is 45 minutes and one that is an hour and 20. The lay overs always suck, but it also helps as I can charge my dvd player, phone, mp3 player and PSP while I wait.

About 10 days, but two of those days are bus travel so 8 days of vacation. YaY!

Have fun on you trip. Kansas? Why Kansas. Go to Abilene. The Eisenhower Presidential Library is there. Pretty cool place (at least it was for a 10 year old boy).

Originally I didn't think I had the money to go anywhere. But I have a friend who is finishing up his PhD at U Kansas this semester. Since he is only writing a dissertation and not actually taking any classes he said I could come visit. He worked all last week, during his Spring Break, and will take this coming week off for mine. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif I haven't taken a vacation that I enjoyed in awhile so I figured it was time. Bus ticket was only $130 so...http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

I thought you was giving up the mod position, but wasnt hoping for it.

Is Kansas the same place as Kansas City? http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-indifferent.gif

Bring lots of books, and maybe think about getting one of those emergency ipod chargers. They can come in handy.

I wish! Id love to be able to view and use a laptop on the bus. Having a good power source for the 23 hour period AND wireless? I'd be set for the whole trip.

...come to think of it...it wouldn't be that different from when I'm at home. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-indifferent.gif

Anyway, my cab is on the way so time to go. Adios.
