Whoa, slow down... List Time

Six days into November and I have not posted yet? Wow, I am truly slipping.

But I have been a little busy, work has picked up, which is a good thing at this point, since work will be nonexistent during law school. Aaaand with work I can afford to go on more trips and write more fun and fascinating stories for you!

To start November I think that I will do a little list of things that I am looking forward to doing and or seeing while I travel North during this month.

Won't you give them a look and tell me what you think;

1. THE Lake:
Hopefully we get out there on another day like this! High seas on the Great Lakes are the best.
The breeze/ wind from the lake is so refreshing that it often puts a little extra pep in one's step.

2. Family.

3. Hunting:
This was two years ago, but I am still riding on that high.

4. Kayaking:

Over break I am going to solo a portion of the Manistee. Who knows I may even bring the fishing pole.
Me and Nature.

5. Black nights:
     The kind that you can walk in and not have to worry about getting mugged.

6. Hiking:
The hiking in Northern Michigan offers some of the most dynamic experiences around.
It is best done when shared with someone though.

7. The feeling of familiarity.
The kind of place where everybody knows your name. While sometimes they know too much, it is still nice to have people know who you are. 

8. A genuine Big Al's Pizza:
Holy cow, Awesomeness in a circle.

No trip to the beach, movies, football game, basketball game, fishing, hunting, hiking, casino, kmart or Dunham's is complete without a Big Al's finale pizza.



Absent from the list is thanksgiving, however there is nothing much to say about it except: loads of turkey, mountains of potatoes, rivers of gravy, generous helpings of dressing and coleslaw. Consume, pass-out, move on to the next house, repeat, move to the final house, repeat, roll on the floor, nap, watch a little National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation/ Indiana Jones and then sink into bed for the weekend.

Time to feed the cats and chill some Coke.
