Out of Pocket...

I'm heading home today, which involves driving five hours to get to Denver Airport and then sitting on a plane for another four and a half hours. Posting will be light-to-nonexistent for the day, so enjoy your Evil Dead White European Male Oppressor Day festivities and oppress some wogs in honor of Columbus.

As much fun as I've had this weekend, I've got a major case of the "Wanna Get Home"s. Four days away is about my limit; I miss my family, my bed, and the familiarity of my area. It's really a different world out here; for the first time I've seen, as aepilotjim says, "miles and miles of miles and miles". It's a strange sight for this East Coast boy to see nothing but land on the horizon - hell, it's weird to see a horizon at all rather than pine trees...

Sometimes I think that the biggest reason we take vacations is so that we can get back home.

That is all.

Spent 10 years in Colo.

When you are out on the plains, it's also the horizon to horizon deep blue sky that's very different as well. ..... and because you are at 5,000 feet, it is not an illusion - the sky actually is a deeper blue.
