The road well traveled

Ok I'm giving in.

I was going to wait and post this tomorrow when I had pictures and could tell the whole story but . . . oh well . . . . this can be an appetizer to the whole story.

If you've been to Jes or JCol's sites then you know the story.

Saturday we went to Jes's mom's house to hang out with a displaced family from New Orleans (sorry I can't call them refugees). They were a really neat family and we had lots of fun talking with them.

At the end of the day Jes took us on a guided tour of her mom's property. This was experienced from the back of a go-jeep (thanks JCol and Jes for the name).

The funny part of this was how many times we made Jes drive the same route. First with just the gals and then with a few of our new friends.

This video came from the trip with the guys. JCol's video is much more stable because she was sitting down in the bed of the go-jeep. I, on the other hand, decided that sitting on the 1 inch bed wall would be a good idea (bad idea, very bad idea) and then standing up was the next option.

Not the most comfortable moment in my life.

less comfortable than the bouncing off of the exercise ball, and onto the floor, and then off of the floor, and back onto the floor? with a thud?

more painful at least but not as dramatic

I was an eyewitness to the flying. It was hilarious. Sorry I laughed at your expense, K-T. But I feel that, under the circumstances, you would have done the same.

Ben - "Big" in terms of the relatively flat ground we were riding on. I realized that depth of field was not accurately portrayed in that video.

Oh and the scream, completely for drama.

I never was able to see the video. :( It's trying to use QuickTime to view it. Any chance you or Jes could send the file as an email? Maybe it would be able to be opened by Windows Media instead then.
