I need a pool!!~~AGAIN!!!

Well, I'm out of Yellowstone. Yellowstone doesn't have internet.

Or pools!
AND, neither does this hotel. So, this will be the 4th day of this vacation without swimming! Hopefully, Laramie has a pool! The reason I really want to swim now is that I saw people in Yellowstone swimming in a special part of one of the lakes set aside for swimming. Before that, I had no problems with the lack of pools in Yellowstone.

So... pool needed! Jackson, Wyoming, is a ski town. People want hot tubs, not pools. Good for them, not good for me!

Random fact/ weather info: NW Illinois will be experiencing a lightning storm sometime around 6:30pm today(Friday, July 23).

Random...
Okay, you're probably bored with this now,

Bye!

V-2: Wall Drug, Crazy Tourism, and a water park.

Well, fkjdfsjdhj. I don't have my camera.

Okay, on a happier note, I am-sorta-a time traveler. I traveled into mountain time today, meaning that I gained an hour, giving my day 25 hours instead of 24. Or maybe still 24, I don't know.

Tomorrow's post will be... -imaginary drum roll- ...Mount Rushmore!! Yay!!

Actually, I do have my camera. It was in my phone case.
**********************************************************************************
Okay, tomorrow I will post some pictures. Going to go now,
Bye!

Vacation Day 1: Council Bluffs, Iowa


Today was a relatively boring day, just driving from home to Council Bluffs, Iowa. That's why the picture is a fridge with a bat, a tiny bottle of Coca-Cola, and a cup of iced tea.
On the way here, we stopped in a little town that I don't know the name of to eat. At the gas station, I got internet access, and that was nice, and at Subway I got the iced tea. The Coca-Cola was already in the truck.
When we got here, we checked in, brought the stuff into the room, and I went swimming in the hotel pool. The pool was crowded with a bunch of obnoxious boys, and I got hit a couple times, accidentally. After swimming, we came back to the room, I dried off, got some snacks, and set up the laptop after taking the picture of the cute little fridge in the cabinet.
I'm bored now, so I'm going to go look up time zone locations to see when we will cross into mountain time, tell Facebook my location, and find out what that town is called!
Bye!

Vacation Day!

Today is the day I go on vacation. I have things to do in the truck, things to do before I leave, and things to do at the hotel. I plan to Map Quest directions for each day so I can navigate, and I will put those directions, without the pictures, on a Notebook document since there's no internet on the highway.
***************************************************************************************
Okay, now that the Map Questing is done, I can get to checking Facebook one last time and finishing this post before packing up the laptop. Well, I do have until 2:00 to do stuff, so I don't know if I should pack up the laptop just yet. Who knows? By the way, I was on Map Quest with the copy/pasting for at least half an hour, so the line up there with the stars is a time gap. I will be posting a picture or two in the next post for today, and it will probably -oh, God, I sat on the remote and changed the channel to a soap opera!- sorry, got off topic there, okay, the picture in tonight's post will probably contain either scenery, action figures, or Mango the bat. Mango came with on my Arkansas vacation 2 years ago, and she's coming with now. Gonna check Facebook now, a time gap star line will probably come soon. Not a half-hour one, hopefully!
***************************************************************************************
Back now. I don't know what to do! I have an hour and a half until vacation. Gonna go not be bored, I'll be back soon with a time gap!
Well, actually, gotta go for vacation early.

I can't think of a title for this post

Okay, printer setup didn't go well. I don't have a USB cord. Ugh! Well, at least I posted the link! Okay, bored of this post, so I will go. This may be the shortest post since January! FYI: January was when I started this blog.
Bye!
RJ
PS: The link is in the post before this one.
Bye!
I will post tomorrow, probably with tons of exclamation points!

Vacation's Tomorrow!! YAY YAY YAY!!!

Vacation is TOMORROW!! Which means that at about 2:00pm tomorrow, I will be heading to Council Bluffs, Iowa! I plan to play Sims along the way, as there's no internet on the highway. But that's only if I bring the disc for the game. Oh, and I want to post a map of the approximate route for vacation. If you want, you can MapQuest it yourself. If you're interested, that is. Anyone reading this, please comment so that I know how many people read my blog(yes, that means you, too, Mom!). Well, since my printer's not hooked up, I can't scan the picture; it wouldn't work from MapQuest. For now, I'll do a link. Here's the approximate route for vacation. Check it out! You know, I only just figured out how to make non-link text into a link. I've seen it before on my mom's blog, but I never knew how to do it until this post. I'm posting this for now, I'll hook up the printer-which can scan too-and get back to you with the picture.

Tubas and Baritones: What's the Difference?

Ok, I've decided to explain the difference between tubas and baritones.

  1. Size: Tubas are huge. Baritones are just big.
  2. Music: Tubas read ONLY bass clef. Baritones can read either treble or bass clef.
  3. Notes and Range: Tubas play lower notes than baritones, and have a larger range because of that.
  4. Tone: Tubas have a deeper tone than baritones.
  5. Variety within category: This means the different types of each, and the variety of names for them. Tubas have sousaphones within their category, and baritones have euphoniums and the alternate name of mini-tuba.
  6. Superpowers: Tubas can have small children put in them, and baritones can have apples and small balloons put in them. I have experience with the baritone things.
  7. Similarity with other instruments: I mean names and size similarities with other instruments. Trumpets and cornets have the size thing, saxophones have the name thing(Tubax and Baritone Saxophone(Bari Sax), along with other instruments.
  8. Awesomeness: Tubas are more awesome(awesomer?) than baritones, because they're bigger. But baritones still rock.
  9. Ability to be blogged about: This is my 3rd or 4th mention of baritones and tubas in a blog post. That's just cool on its own!

I really have to go now, my brother's getting into something!

Bye,

RJ

Vacation Excitement! YAY!!

Okay, I get that I haven't been on in, what, a month. Sorry, but I've been busy, what with hanging out with my friend, yes, only one; watching 2 seasons of In Plain Sight, my favorite show of June, and the third season the day of the season 3 finale; and getting ready for vacation. Yes, vacation. I'm going to Yellowstone National Park, you know, the one in Wyoming, Montana, and Idaho, but mainly in Wyoming. I will be away from home for 11 days, but I'll still blog! I'm bringing the laptop with, and will try to take a nice picture for each post. I'm already packed a lot, but there's still a few things left. Like my phone, pills, and hat. I can't pack my hat, because I'm wearing my hat right now, and I have to take my pills before then. My phone, I do still have to use that before vacation. Otherwise, I'm doing good. I will be on vacation from the 16th to the 27th. That means there's still 5 days until I leave. Actually a little less than that! The places I will be are: Council Bluffs, Iowa; Rapid City, South Dakota; Billings, Montana; Yellowstone National Park, Wyoming; Jackson, Wyoming; Laramie, Wyoming; Lincoln, Nebraska; and then home. I will be in SD for the weekend, in Yellowstone for 3 days, and in Laramie for the next weekend. In case you're wondering, I packed the laptop and I'm using the desktop computer right now. Okay, you probably weren't wondering about that, because the only person I know of that reads this is my mom. Oh, well, now I'm bored.

Bye!
