This trip wasn't as wild and crazy as it could have been, mostly due to the fact that the reason I was there was for a conference for work. Not to say that things didn't get wacky.
First off, let me mention that I left on this trip just after the 4th of July weekend. That weekend was a slammed one that involved a lot of drinking. Even on the Monday before I left. I was coerced (you could even say forced) in to drinking that Monday, even though I had to pack. It is not a good idea to pack while you are drunk. We will cite examples of this later in our journey.
Let me try to make this a bit shorter than the other journals. We'll stick to the basics.
