C and C Road Trip to Wyoming

I just got off the phone with Chris and he wanted me to give a little update/teaser from his trip across the country. If you haven't heard, Chris and Christy are driving to Wyoming to spend some time with family and enjoy some time off. But instead of flying, they decided to take a road trip. After packing up the truck and small Uhaul (including 2 yorkies), they were off . 

The journey out west began immediately after football camp on Sunday. The first night was rather uneventful as they drove into the night making it as far as Indiana. The excitement began when they hit a 3 hour delay due to morning traffic near Chicago. This major setback on a 30 hour trip forced Chris and Christy call it an early day. Somewhere in Wisconsin the two found a nice casino hotel to rest for the night . This is where the tease comes in. After only a few short hours there, they managed to get themselves thrown out of the hotel. This isn't even the best part, as they were driving to the next location circumstances required that they call a towing company after only 10 miles on the road to come pick them up. 

There is no need to worry however, they are safe. You can read all about it tomorrow because Chris has promised to give a full update including video of the trip when they arrive in Wyoming. Trust me, it will be worth the read.

I want to know how in the world you got tossed out a a casino hotel?

Disturbing the peace is my prediction.

OMG. C&C are in my area. I live in Denver, but I am a Redskins fan FOREVER. If the two of you come anywhere near Donkeyland. Go to the Lancer Lounge 7th and Grant (my favorite neighborhood r Dive bar) and ask for Saundra.

Thoughts on your good buddy Ovi getting on the cover of a video game this year? When does Cooley get on the cover of Madden?

Wondering if any of the regular followers of this blog know if there is a way to get this blog on a cell or Windows Mobile phone???

I've followed since Day 1 but don't recall seeing anything.


Cannot wait to hear this story. Chris, I know how much you hate flying, but it has to be better than the dreaded road trip from hell. And please, whatever you do, DO NOT go anywhere called "Donkeyland!" Anyplace with that name cannot be a good thing!

Just got back from Powell myself. Brother-in-law has a small hoestead on Lane 11. He says the Cooley family home is easily noticeable during the season. It's a great town... Cody IS Rodeo!!!! K. Swope

We have someone working on a prototype for an iPhone app as we speak.

Right on, will it only work for that or for Windows Mobile phones as well?

Thanks for the reply bro! Love this blog, and appreciate all the time you guys put into it!

Gotta love long trips across the US in a car. They should try camping on the way back instead of hotels. :)

On my blog, one of the writers developed a way to read post on ur phone. It is not as flashy as being online but gets the message across. I would say it is somewhat similar to reading the inside of the newspaper.

Thrown out of a hotel... hmmmmmmmm

Three couples went in to see the minister to see how to become members of his church. The minister said that they would have to go without sex for two weeks and then come back and tell him how it went.

The first couple was retired, the second couple was middle-aged and the final couple was newlywed.

Two weeks went by, and the couples returned to the minister. The retired couple said it was no problem at all. The middle-aged couple said it was tough for the first week, but after that, it was no problem. The newlyweds said it was fine until she dropped the can of paint.

"Can of PAINT!" exclaimed the minister.

"Yeah," said the newlywed man. "She dropped the can and when she bent over to pick it up I had to have her right there and then. Lust took over."

The minister just shook his head and said that they were not welcome in the church.

"That's okay," said the man. "We're not welcome in Home Depot anymore either."

Right on, thank you Tanner and Anon!

Thanks for the posts about the trip. And oh yeah as a relocated NoVa'er living in the cheese state remember try not to drive through Chitown except at night and try to take 294 around to avoid that downtown mess you got caught up in.
