More traveling for the holidays
Well, I've been back in Dallas for almost nine days now and it's almost time to hit the road again. On Wednesday, a good friend will be flying in from Atlanta to accompany me on my drive back east. The plan is that we'll leave on Thursday afternoon and head to Atlanta via Shreveport, Louisiana. What's there? Casinos! That's what's there! We're gonna' crash in Shreveport for a couple days and do some gambling. I'll spend most of my time playing poker (which, in my opinion, isn't gambling in the traditional sense) and maybe some blackjack (which most certainly is gambling in the traditional sense). I plan to play some $4/8 or $5/10 Limit Hold 'em. Hopefully, I'll make a big pile of cash that I can use to finance my Christmas traveling.
After Shreveport, we're heading to Atlanta where my buddy has a show at 6 o'clock on Saturday evening. Then I'll hang in ATL until around December 22, at which time I'll head to Florida. I might try to catch a basketball game before Christmas (the Gators are currently 9-0 and I'd love to go seem them extend their win streak and maybe set the record for best start in our basketball program's history). Then, of course, I'll spend Christmas with my family in Jacksonville.
A day or so after Christmas, I'll leave Florida and head back to ATL to finish out my Christmas vacation. After bumming around ATL for a few days, I'll start heading back west to Dallas via Shreveport (if all goes well during our first visit).
So, those are my plans for the break. I'm pretty sure my Christmas vacation is just as long as the kids at UF this semester, so I feel almost like a college kid planning a road trip between semesters.
