Road Trip!

Yesterday after school I arrived home to a sea of messages all from one person who happens to be a member of the 130-O crew. The messages indicated that there was an urgent road trip that needed to be taken on the ASAP (as soon as possible).

I returned to call to Ms. Erin Boyd and the conversation went like this:

Me: What's up?
Boyder: What are you doing tonight?

Me: Not too much, why?
Boyder: Well...we need to go to Belleville TONIGHT.

Me: Tonight....why?
Boyder: Just because...

Me: Because why?
Boyder: Well I talked to Amber who is going to see Erica tonight and she said there is something happening tonight in Belleville that we aren't going to want to miss - Krista and Amber are on there way now.

Me: Really? Oh my god.....ahhh, okay, let's go...I'll drive...pick you up in an hour.
Boyder: Okay, bye!

And just like that, a road trip was born. I arrived home at 5:15, and was back in Ottawa at Erin's doorstep at 6:30. In that time, I managed to shower, grab some clothes and booze, and we were off!

We made some questionable driving moves on the 401, but arrived in Belle-Vegas at 9:00. We met Krista and Amber at the exit in Belleville and headed out to this Barn Party where the fesitivities were just under way.

Ben proposed to Erica before we got there (at his house, not at the BARN!). When we showed up in the driveway the look on Clapper's face was priceless. She was pretty much in shock from the events before our arrival, but she looked the happiest I have seen her in a long time. It was a pretty exciting night for all us - it was a great party, and we were up until the wee hours of the morning, but a good time was had by all.

Congratulations Clapper and Ben!
