Next time we’ll fly!

Last weekend we were invited to go to South Padre Island to a motorcycle rally with my family and some of the other riders we know. We drove the truck with a trailer attached so that if anyone broke down we could just load them up and trailer them home instead of wasting time fixing the bike. I don’t think we realized just how far it was to Padre, though.

By the time we all got there we were exhausted, and I can’t even begin to imagine how all of the bikers felt. But, after a good nights sleep almost everyone was good to go the next morning. Notice I said almost.

I don’t know why, but I always get sick either on the weekend or on vacation. I can’t get sick on a weekday when I can get out of work. Nope! So of course, Saturday morning I woke up with some sort of demon bug that caused me to feel like crap, no I’m not pregnant. I managed to pull myself out of bed around lunch time because I was determined to not let all of that driving go to waste. Once we got on South Padre we met all of the bikers at a seafood restaurant where I fulfilled another one of my goals. I tried MahiMahi and liked it (at least going down, bleh)! Sorry, I didn’t take any photos of me with the fish. Didn’t think about it at the time.

Then we went to the beach. I LOVE the beach so I pushed aside my sickness and had fun. This particular beach was strange though. There were people driving on it. So we had to dodge cars and…

motorcycles with interesting characters on them. Someone please call What Not To Wear, this lady needs help immediately.

Sunday we woke up bright and early and headed home. We made the 12 hour drive back with 6 motorcycles, a truck with a trailer, and a very sick passenger. Can we say torture??? We actually had a blast and would do it again, but if we did we would either fly or take a couple more days for travel.
