I suppose I should officially say I am back from my short 3 day vacation to Grand Teton National Park and Yellowstone National Park in Wyoming.  I live in Wyoming, so we didn't have very far to go.  Here are some pictures from my trip:
 
Part of the Teton Mountain Range:

My family next to an elk rack arch in Jackson.  The sun was in our eyes, so we were sort of squinting.

Here is me, my mom, and my sister standing next to a stuffed bear in Jackson.  The bear was actually for sale.  $35,000!
Trip02.gif
 
This image shows how dry Teton Lake was.  It must have been down about 10 feet.  The person in this picture is my younger sisters boyfriend (not the sister in the purple shirt in the above pic).

Here is the crowd waiting to see Old Faithfull in Yellowstone.

Here is Old Faithful blowing:

Here is a hot spring that is pretty close to Old Faithful.

Wow!!! Now I really do believe that there actually is such a thing as a SimTropolis addiction!! 20.gif

I'm on the verge of doing now the same thing I've been doing with my congregation, my boss and my staff at work, and the U.S. Post Office (& a couple of buddies @ SimCity.com too) 2.gif :

My wife and I are going home with the kiddoes to see our folks in Indiana this weekend for a few days.
We let them know too! (after all forewarned is forearmed!!) 11.gif -Just kidding!!!

Actually our parents looove their grandchildren 36.gif36.gif36.gif, and my leave time at my job coincided with personal events back in Indy. If there's anything serious I'll let somebody in the community know.


I've spent quite a few hours in the community the past couple of months & even though I'll be gone a relatively short period I'm actually gonna miss a few folks here in cyberspace.5.gif

I'm going to miss coming here every evening with the kiddoes tucked in bed to relax and read the city journals, learning BATing and Modding techniques (I had no idea what they were 3 months ago; heck people at my job don't even know that a BAT is used in baseball!! -they are familiar with the flying mammals, we sometimes call them attorneys !!) 9.gif,

and most of all I'll miss reading and swapping wisecracks on the BBS (as much as Aronion & co. will permit)!

Oh wow with whom do I start:
-Hummer, Boris, Ash, Dev & company, feel free to pm or email me about Sim Mars going-ons and duties to come.
-JMussen, I've got a cool idea for a Sim Mars avatar that I'll pm you about.
-Simman, I'm not sure when everything is due for your journal but I think I think I can give you a neat picture when I come back.
-Vid, keep rounding up the $%&^!'s but cut the earnest ones a little slack (but strongly lasso the intentional jerks!); and thanks for guiding me around too!
-Ash, give the pirates what for!
-Tropod, give Norton what for!
-Ms. Chara I hope Sim Explorer comes home safely.
-Whoever is doing that new Columbus journal, pls don't let it go metropolis!
-LTParis, I hope D.C. finally solves it's traffic problem in the future!
-Ert I hope you find a lot more idyllic villages this week!
-DT & the NDEX co. good luck on your new collaboration!
-Sim Goober you've earned a vacation too!
-SkiGeek take good care of your cyberchildren!!

Did I miss anybody?? (I must have, there's over 42,000 of us!!!)

When I come back, I'm gonna try to develop enough self-discipline to stay off the boards for a while. I still have a nice summer honey do... list to complete (you married folks know what I mean!) and I finally intend to complete the tutorials; at least ideally Phillipbo's in a couple of weeks. I hope to start my first ever BAT'ing project sometime in September. I also hope to have solid plan for a charter school in my real life by then too!!!

Take care y'all!!44.gif Joe

P.S. Is there is a mechanism to temporarily disable all of the tracking via e-mail without deleting the accounts individually? I don't want to lose the subscriptions altogether but my wife freaks out as it is when she sees a 100+ e-mails coming our way on a given day, let alone e-mails stored for 3-6 days!!!32.gif I'll still be lu

I've just got back from Shropshire (in the UK) and I took my Laptop but I'm not going to take my laptop to Surrey because it is getting repaired as I dropped it down a mountain side along with all my other stuff (i am writng this in a library). I will be going to stay with my nan and then I will go walking in the south downs.

I will be gone until further notice. The entire Tampa Bay area is being evacuated. Power will be shut off at 12 EST tonight. Category 3 winds are going to push a 14 foot storm surge onto the island I live on, probably leaving my house flooded by several feet of water. I dont know whether or not my computer will survive.... for all I know my house could be gone when return.... so I may or may not be back over the next few days. I hope everything turns out alright. Wish me luck. 35.gif

That water in the hot spring is pretty clear.  It reminds me of pools in hotels.

Well, that's the scariest entry I've read in this thread in a long time. I hope that you, your family, your house, and your computer survive Hurricane Charlie. Good luck to you.

I guess I'm back. I haven't posted here in a long time, and I've been in the chat a lot recently. This is due to a renewed intrest in SC4... the cause of which cannot be determined. Nonetheless, expect to see a bit more of me around here.
