Default best weekend ever

actually one of the worst.

so my buddy tells me a while ago that hes moving to san francisco and needs help moving. so he enlists me and a few other people to drive my friends death trap of a 88 ford econoline e350 that runs on either diesel or veggie oil to save him money. we all knew it was going to be an issue for that van to get there and back, but we took the risk

left chicago on tuesday around 2 pm. the trip was supposed to take about 36 hours, but due to maintainence on the van and my friends girlfriend being a c-bag, it took 52 hours. i got a $112 ticket in nevada for "imprudent driving" because when following another car i had to change lanes like a jackass. angry cop was angry. we unpacked the u-haul, spent the night in san francisco, woke up in the morning and started the trek back, minus my buddy and his girlfriend. one thing we didnt account for was desert weather. we were all thinking it was going to be warm, so we packed lightly. we didnt think about the desert getting down to 27 degrees. our van had neither heat nor ac. none of us had jackets. and we only had one blanket

we were pretty optimistic about the journey home. we didnt have to haul a big trailer, so we figured the van would be much happier. and it was for a while. even though we had to pull over at least once an hour to refill coolant and trans fluid. the thing was leaking faster than the gulf oil spill. somewhere in cali/nevada mountains, we had a coolant hose burst. not a huge deal, replaced it in napa's parking lot and we were cool

we made it about 120 miles past salt lake city when van starts filling with smoke. we pull over and notice someone forgot to put the dipstick for the trans fluid back in. so we fill it with some more fluid. rig up a plug for the trans fluid and tried to go on our way. except now the trans immediately started jerking the van around. so we pull over and notice THIS


so we call AAA, get a tow to lyman wyoming. it gave me such a "texas chainsaw" feeling it was unbelievable. i felt like our tow driver was like the cop in the movie bringing us to leatherface. we knew the van was effed. so we spent a few hours in lyman like this:
the one sitting in the van would be me. as you can see im super :amused: because im also on about 8 hours of sleep in about 3 or 4 days.

so..we decide the only option is to fly home, or take a 30 hour long greyhound bus ride. we chose to fly. basically hitchiked from lyman to salt lake city (120 miles). paid $388 for standby seats. got stuck with a connection to vegas, but was not able to get on a flight that night to chicago. the next flight was at 6:30 am, so we were stranded in vegas for a night. we decided to make the best of it and found out that a room at the hooters hotel was only $35 for a night on a weeknight. so we set our alarms for 4:00 when the shuttle to the airport was supposed to take us at 4:20. we had to party on the cheap so we hit the liquor store and i bought 3 Four locos.

if you dont know what four loco is..its like a sparx/joose with 12% abv, i completely underestimated how it would effect my sleep deprivated body. we walked the strip for a bit drinking.

this is where i completely blackout. the only this i remember is running from a pack of very scary looking black dudes. lord i have no idea if they were even chasing me. but i ran. alot. apparently we even got picked up in a limo and taken to a strip club. i dont even think i got in because my buddy said i went missing for a while.

next thing i know i wakeup in my hotel room at 9:30. im pretty pissed. still piss drunk. realize im missing my wonderful nexus one phone. i either was robbed by those dudes or just left it in a cab or something. so we hop a shuttle and get to the airport and were able to snag an 11 am flight to chicago. worst flight of my life. turbulence the whole time, my buddy and i were puking the whole 3.5 hour flight.

so i get back to my car that i left in the street at my friends house. turns out her neighbor is a douche and called the cops to give us $50 tickets every night. turns out my city has an ordinance that you cannot be parked in the street more than 24 hours in the same spot..ive been parking in front of my house for years. this was yesterday, and since thursday i had probably had at most 15 hours of sleep total.

and of course a girl i started talking to convinces me to go out to the bar with her last night. turns out it was a 4am bar. i wakeup today and feel like death. i think i may hibernate for a month.

this was my weekend. i know youre envious..what did i miss in the audio world?
