letters from the mailbag

It's at least 64 degrees outside right now, absolutely balmy for January in Chicagoland. Good day to sit in a bar.

Oh yeah, we can't smoke inside anymore. We are now Florida!

Did your route take you thru Ft Wayne? I spend a lot time there also.

I'm not sure. My route on 65 takes me through, well, 65. And at 3 in the morning, all the towns pretty much look the same. How come so many towns are named after water towers, anyway?

I find turning on the heated seats helps me.

Heated seats? There is only one way this seat is able to be heated, and that's my biggest concern at this point.

MDF, thanks for joining in, that was a great post! Your join date shows you to be just about a founding member here on the Dis, and I can't believe I didn't find it until july of 06. I also remember reading some of your reports a while ago when I was still a lurker, and injoyed them a lot, don't you have a dumb nickname also? Buzz? Yeah, I remember reading you and thinking it must be ZZUB during his dyslexic phase! Well thanks for reading, hope you come around often!

Have you ever seen the movie 2 weeks notice? In one scend Sandra Bullock's character is stuck in a trafic jam and after eating a hog dog she has to go really bad, so she runs up to an rv that's sitting in front of her and asks to use their bathroom.................You reminded me of that scene!
I don't think there is anything more terrifying than to be stuck in that situation. So helpless, so helpless, I'd rather spend 12 hours with an Amway salesman.

Mo, that was a great post, I was laughing my butt off here at all your comments, unfortunately you can't get the whole exchange when you multi quote. Sounds like we share a titanium moment together. I've had a plate, 8 screws, and a dozen staples embedded into my foot, along with a piece of my hip, though that wasn't titanium. Most of the junk is out of there now, except for just a couple of broken screws that would be too much trouble to remove.

I want to point out that I have removed my "masochistic" ticker and replaced it with a link to my trip report that I started this morning. Shameless plug - but you inspired me Nebo! Now if I could just figure out how to change my title to update date and chapter post...

Looking forward to the next update!
hi CJ, I'm gonna be a know-it -all here right now. First of all, I think you're confusing ZzUB with Happyhaunt, he's from Alabama I believe, she's from Canada. But they talk about each other a lot in they're reports so it's easy to mix them up. And Two: It seems folks appreciatate it when you update your title to include the last chapter entry and the date and page it's on.
Just go to the first page of your trip report, and hit "edit" at the bottom. When the screen changes, then hit "Advance Edit". Then you'll be able to change the title to include new info.

Really? Only once? I take back my PM!

Dang Nebo your fans are so fast every time I want to make a comment I'm so far behind nobody cares anymore.
I care And We have Chicago Dogs down here, there's one next door to my office and I'm totally hooked.
So glad to see a new report I need something interesting to do at work tomorrow.

My Chicago dog has mustard, relish, onions, pickle, and celery salt. And the fries are wrapped up with the dog. Ah, heaven.

hi, nebo! i was sent over here by the peeps on the DISappearing peeps thread. i keep hearing of these people named nebo and smidgy and i'm here to find out what the heck everyone's talking about!

You don't touch the gas pedal for about 7 miles, and that's no bull.
that would be called monteagle. i live in georgia and my entire family is in nashville, hence lots of road trips over this stretch of interstate. i'm used to it now as long as i have my gum to help with the ear-popping. tell smidgy that if she can overcome her fear long enough to open her eyes while coming down the mountain and going towards chattanooga it's a GORGEOUS view! i don't know if it was daylight when you guys were going through there but it's really pretty.

Buzz, yup. I wouldn't call it dumb though.



I actually joined in 1997 but they reset everyone in 1999 so I had to start over. I remember being really pissed about that also. I musta had an easy life if that bothered me.

I'll ride this sucker out to the end. Great start and thank you for sharing.

Yep, it was just before the bridge over to the island. So cute!!

Great start Nebo. With your eyes I can't believe you'd try driving at night. We no how well you do going into the rides/restaurants and all. Does the same thing happen when headlights hit? You just drive blind for 5 minutes or so?

Hi Nebo!

Well, I had no idea that you had such a huge following or a previous report. I feel honored that you responded to me! I REALLY do live in Qatar, I swear. Next to camel riding the Disboards are my favorite things. No, I hate riding camels, but I do see them often. We are Americans living here for a few years. DH is an Accountant for an oil company and I am the Queen of our villa and ruler over our children and pets.

Now I am off to read the report you have finished!

Well, Mr, Know-It-All, if you don't know what ZZUB did to that bathroom in Canada (Epcot's version, that is), it's clear to me that you haven't kept up with your trip-report reading. All caught up in writing your own, now, are you?
