I Want to Believe --- Part 1Friday, January 25, 2013
Hold onto your hats ladies and gents -- this one is wild.
This story starts off as most crazy, awesome stories do -- with two drunk people.
John and I had been hanging out with a friend of mine at a bar with 1$ drafts. So we were feeling pretty good. It was 2:30 in the morning and Sunday. We both were looking forward to two glorious days off of work and I wanted to DO something.
"I've never been out of the state of Texas," John said.
And from that one statement a half-baked, but totally awesome plan, was born.
"Well, where do you want to go?" I asked him.
"We'll sleep and go tomorrow."
We woke up at 10:00 am and after filling up we actually thought to look at a Google Map of how far Denver actually is.
|14 Hours and 41 Minutes.|
|10 Hours 54 Minutes.|
We figured that 11 hours would be doable. And so we headed on our way.
|Until we made it out of Texas.|
After stopping a few places to stretch our legs and fill up the tank, we ended up in Roswell, New Mexico.
|7 Hours and 47 Minutes.|
Hungry, tired of sitting, and after realizing we might be short on cash we decided that Roswell, New Mexico was a fine place to stay for a mini vacation.
And even though it wasn't our original destination, it was absolutely perfect.
