Road Trip 2003

When I should have been going to Pittsburgh I instead made a detour to Indianapolis. During a pit stop at a rest station along the way, Bobby felt the desire to pass out in the grass for a while. After we rinsed him clean of fleas we were off to Indi, for some King of the hill style drinking and wiffle ball. You wouldn't think that wiffle ball would be too much fun, but add drinking and a cooler of beer at first base and you have yourself some entertainment. Later that evening we sat around the campfire and ate "harry potter" jelly beans (some of which were literally "puke" flavored).

Well the next day a big group of us played a shit-load more wiffle ball. Then carried the drunkenness into the night, which I don't have any recollection of what-so-ever. But apparently I puked and passed out. Damn that grenade punch.

Well the next day my Pittsburgh contact fell through so I went back to Champaign to party another night there. Nothing to out of the ordinary.
