I took a little vacation over the holidays. I headed up to the coldest place on earth….alright maybe it wasn’t the coldest place, but it sure felt like it. I went up to Wisconsin to see my Dad and Step-mom as well as other people and family.
I headed out early on the 22nd and thankfully I made it there without any problems. I didn’t have any canceled flights our anything like that. After arriving in the frozen tundra the first thing Dad and I did was head to the cheese store. Not to far from the airport is a place where they make fresh cheese. We got a few bags of cheese curds and a couple blocks of cheese. I looked at getting a cheese head hat, but decided against it, because of baggage space limitations.
Most of the time was spent just hanging out with family. We went to see a movie, went out to eat a bunch. You know the normal family stuff.
I did get to see the grave stone of Jessica. I posted about her in a post called 10 years ago… It was nice to see the stone, she was a very good friend of mine, and I don’t think I have ever actually seen her stone. The fist time I was there to see her grave site there was just a plaque.
Also got to hang out with a couple friends including @grinningsoul who I have never met in person but have talked to online for almost two years. It was awesome to meet someone for the first time you have known and followed for a while. <–That sounds very stoker like, thanks social networks.
All in all I had a great time….well except for the cold!
