Remember that one time when...Wrong Way

It's time for another installment of Remember that one time when... hope you enjoy the story from this week. :)

Remember that one time when...my Theta Tau friends and I were travelling to Ann Arbor, Michigan for a regional conference and several shenanigans ensued.  We left early Friday evening and planned to arrive in Ann Arbor sometime after midnight.  Of course for these long road trips you need to stop and fuel up a bit and I'm not referring to gasoline but rather to our tummies.  About 1 hour into our trip we made our first pit stop at  the World's Largest Truck stop.  If you are from Iowa, you probably know exactly what I am talking about, but if you aren't, let me tell you, you are definitely missing out.  It is a large truck stop on Interstate 80 near Walcott, Iowa, right outside of the Quad cities.  Quite fascinating.  The truck stop has several restaurants (fast food) and really nice bathrooms (huge perk).  We pulled in and got our fill at Burger King and it was not so delicious for me, but the boys enjoyed some disgusting chicken burger thing.  Nasty.

Once we got back into our surburban, I was unceremoniously booted from my spot as co-pilot and resigned to my position in the very back.  I must say I thought I was doing an excellent job co-piloting but apparently my pilot didn't not enjoy my company.  Approximately 30 seconds after getting on the road again we took the on-ramp to get back on  a few passengers, myself included, realized we were headed west back towards Iowa City.  We were going the wrong way!

We all gave the driver and the new co-pilot a hard time for getting us lost.

The rest of the weekend was spend playing p-diddle on the drive, our driver following cars in front of us way too closely and the passengers being generally scared for our life, and playing quarters in our hotel room.

And my friend Brenton petted the wolverine statue.
