    Long Trip, No Pictures

    So my wife and I drove out to Lake Tahoe for a cycling event she was participating in. Two days to drive there. The first evening we go on a boat cruse, and the weather is overcast, so I just take a couple of iphone snap shots, planning to do the real photography the next two days. Then I wake up at 1:30 in the morning with the stomach flu. I was totally disabled Saturday, felt only good enough to walk a little and eat a bit of solid food on Sunday, then back in the car for the drive home on Monday. I never unzipped my photo backpack. At least my wife didn't get as sick as I did, and was able to do a shortened version of her bike ride. UGH! Now I have a nasty cold! DOUBLE UGH!

    You have my sincere sympathies... I wouldn't wish stomach flu on my worst enemy; though possibly on those who oppose me.

    That is horrible Woody. There are few things worse than getting sick on the road. Glad you made it home safe. God Bless.

    :-) Sorry Woody, your story took me back to the 70's when I lived in California. A couple of fellow workers and I
    took a trip to South Lake Tahoe, on the way we had lunch and I order chili. Wrong, while everyone was having fun
    I sat on the throne and wondered why anyone would put a phone in the bathroom. Memories :-). Better luck next trip.
