Narrator*: It all started last week, when Keith came home from camping.
Keith: Hey! They're having a yard sale on Highway 60 next weekend.
Eddie: Really? I didn't know they did that.
K: Yeah. I saw the signs on the way back.
N: So Eddie hopped on the internet a few days later to check it out.
E: Hmmmm....175 miles.....seven counties....sounds like fun to me!
N: And so, a few days later...
E: Honey, why don't we do the Highway 60 Sale this weekend? We can just go until we're tired and turn around and come home.
K: Yep. I'm game.
N: The counter-proposal** came the day before they left.
K: Honey, what would you think abut making an over-night out of it?
E: What do you mean?
K: Go until we're tired, find a place to camp, and spend the night, then come home on Sunday and hit some more sales.
E: Do we have enough time to get everything ready?
K: It's already ready. I haven't put the camping stuff away yet.***
E: What about food?
K: We'll get some stuff tonight and take it with us.
E: Sure. Sounds like fun.
N: And so the next day, the boys loaded up the car and set out west looking for bargains.
More to come!
*This works best if you imagine the narrator sounding like Waylon Jennings, a la Dukes of Hazzard. Waylon frequently makes guest appearances from beyond to narrate our trips.
**There's always a counter-proposal. And sometimes a counter-counter-propsal!
***Truth is, in the summer the camping stuff never gets put away!
