A quaint and starry sky looked upon Nick and Chelsea as they slept soundfully past their alarm clock.  As Nick dreamed about wrestling wild boars in the Arkansas wilderness, Chelsea was startled by a voice in the dark, saying, "Wake up... it's time to go pet the armadillo in the pickle tree..."

Chelsea thought, "What the heck was that?" 

The profound voice got her motivated to wake up, and as she checked her cellular phone to see the time, she noticed that her and Nick had already slept two hours past the initial time they wanted to leave for their sojourn out west. 

"Nick..." Chelsea whispered as she tapped Nick on the shoulder, "It's time to go, we are late."

"Late for what?" Nick mumbled in an incoherent and startled tone.  

"To go out west! Remember?!" replied Chelsea.

"What the h*ll are we doing that for?" responded Nick.

"I don't know, it was your idea!!??" snapped Chelsea.

"My idea?!  You are the one that always wanted to go to that one place where you can lay down and have all of your appendages be in different states at the same time!!!" yelled Nick.

"Just shut up."

"You shut up."

"Let's leave."

"Ok."

And upon fighting before even leaving serene Covington, Ohio, the couple began a packing endeavor that lasted 2 hours longer than necessary.  Reluctantly, by 6:30am, five and half hours later than their original plans, they gave their mothers one last smooch before departing on their 18 day journey, made for reasons unknown, heading for their first destination: Mountain Home, Arkansas. 

Hope broke over the horizon, poking it's head through the foggy mist settled on the Ohioan soil... promising something more than an armadillo in a pickle tree.
