File this one under "Well, That Was a Bust"

Roger and I left very early on a foggy Sunday morning to wage war and do battle (aka Roger was going to a Warhammer tournament) in Media, Pennsylvania.

It was so incredibly humid outside my camera lens fogged up the moment I opened a window.
But the fog finally lifted and we continued on our way. Here is me being a passenger. Hello fence.
We passed many a barn. Here is one with birds. Don't attack me kiddos, I am friend not food.
Here are some hay bales. Don't they look snug as a bug in a rug.
No shortage of corn fields either! I like this field peeking through the window. Hello, I see you there!
I am very nosy. Here is a guy walking his dog. I papped that.
More barns in classic red. Anyone ever see a yellow barn?
Driver of the day.
We got stuck behind this car. I wanted to challenge them to a street race, but I left my racing flags at home. Bummer. I didn't have my street race bikini on my either. I know, what was I thinking?
Idyllic countryside. Good morning America.
Still so far to go. Shoot.
Holla Pennsylvania! Thank you for welcoming me into your kind kingdom. Side note: I have an EzPass so I never concern myself with trivial concerns such as tollbooths. Pffttt. Did you know they cost FOUR DOLLARS? Highway robbery. (literally. heheh)
Here are my shoes on the dashboard, the only way to travel.
More of the driver, he's riding dirty.
This inspirational graffiti was very well timed. 2.5 hours into our journey Roger realized the GPS took us an incredibly ridiculous way and we still were an hour away from the place we needed to be by 11:30. It was 11:00. Shoot.
Something missing from this picture? I'll tell you what. Media, Pennsylvania.
Still not Media but I liked this giant nose.
Not Media.
Shoot, still not Media.
More tolls. Ridonkalous.
Long story short: We turned the car around after driving for three hours and never getting where we needed to go. It was a dark day for the Katie/Roger household, and if I could have teleported out of that car I would have. Unfortunately I had to sit in that dark abyss for the three hour return journey. Hey look! Me again!


Finally though we made it home. For all of you stalkers out there I have no idea who lives in this house I just like the country feel.

PS. I keep forgetting to link up to Trust Your Style, pop over and see who you find. Spoiler: It's me!

  25. I have a story about putting your feet up on the dashboard...I know someone who got in a car accident while his wife was doing that and her knees literally bended backwards (ughh I cringe just thinking about it)...not that I don't put them up there anyway...

  35. Katie, I'm so sorry you got stuck in the car like that, it's happened to me, truly suckalicious. I will say this: the gps in my car never works and it took a free map/gps ap on the iphone to straighten out my drivetimes. Looks like you still had some fun!
