“I wake up in the morning and I piss excellence”

I just got back from a weekend trip to Indiana with friends.

What’s there to do in a small town an hour North of Indiana in the middle of November?

Nothing at all.

But we found $77 round-trip flights, and we decided to get four couples together and just hang out at our friends Mark & Kristen’s house.

We got in Friday afternoon and the wives jumped straight into shopping and mani/pedicuring. (Cliché? Maybe, but not as cliché as what the guys did.)

The husbands grabbed the bourbon, the junk food, headed for the basement, played pool, and watched stupid movies on their 10-foot big-screen with surround-sound. (Bonus points if you can name the movie in the subject line.)

When our wives got home (pretty nails & all) we cooked a nice dinner, hung out around the fire and just shared story, after story, after story.

No expensive restaurants…

No fancy excursions…

Just 2 nights of relaxing, bourbon, wine, home-cooking & friendship. Sunday, we all headed back to the airport & went back to our normal lives.

The funny thing is – the majority of the stories we shared were of trips to places we all had in common.

Not just in recent years, but 5 years, 10 years, even stories from 30 years ago were shared as vividly as if they happened just last week.

The moral of the story?

The more you make travel a priority – the more amazing stories you can carry with you the rest of your life, and no one can take those memories from you.

Not the bank after a foreclosure.

Not your boss.

Not even your ex’s divorce lawyer.

In fact, the ONLY person who can take those memories away is you…

By continuing to tell yourself you’re too busy to make travel a priority.

[Edit: Little did we know – this would be the beginning of a tradition of many trips together in years to come. Some with just the couples when the kids were away. Others with ALL of the kids on what we now call “Friendcations”.]
