    Well I finally made it to my nations capital!  It only took me 32 years.  Once again I was pretty excited to check out DC. There were so many things I  wanted to do and see but alas I was sick!  All my excitement was for not because all my body wanted to do was lay down and die!   I refused to accept what my body was telling me so I took truck load of Ibuprofen to so I could feel half human.

    Dave and I stayed with his Step Dad who was the most gracious host one could ever ask for.   He took us out for nice dinners, showed us around and even gave me some clothes when I discovered that I had left my backpack with a bitch that was crazier than a run over dog.  I only had the clothes on my back.....Email me if you want to know the backpack story...it keeps getting better and better.  

    Our first order of business was to hash!  DC is famous among hashing circles for having some really good kennels so I could not wait to see how my east coast brethren got down!  Having hashed a bit around the world I knew some of the hashers.  They even picked us up!  Thanks Happy!  (His whole hash name is Happy on his knees)  The trail was muddy, the beer flowed and the shot stop rocked but alas my retarded friend Dave (who had the only camera) cannot find the photos.  This guy is proof that evolution CAN go in reverse. 

    Our next order of business was to party in Georgetown for Halloween.  Dressed as a Monty Python Knight (with coconut shells to boot) with Dave dressed as a hot dog, we set out to plunder the town.   Only problem was that everyone else had the same idea.  It was to much of a good thing!  The bar streets  were packed as was every single pub.   Places were charging enormous covers just to stand in a room that was more crowed than a Tokyo subway.  Dave brought a couple packs of raw hot dogs  and would give them randomly to strangers, street musicians and waitress as a tips....needless to say they did not seem very pleased with his room tempature sausage...(thats what she said!  BaaaddaaaBing!)  The best part of the night was seeing an old friend I use to work with in Yellowstone.  I knew she lived in DC so it was fantastic that we could catch up! 

    Finally after hashing and Halloween I put on my tourist hat and went out to see the sites of DC.  By this time I felt simply terrible but I trudged on through the sites and museums.  Seeing the White House and the Mall and the Tomb of the Unknown Solider were pretty sweet but they would have been alot better if I did not have the Man flu. 

All in all....it was a great trip to DC.  I would love to come back, be healthy and see more! (and have more than one change of clothes)
