Gut Rumbles

July 01, 2004


I'm going back to Costa Rica. I am staying 20 days this time and I intend to see some of the country that I didn't catch the first time around. I may go over the the Caribbean side this time, just to say I've been there. I want to go back to the volcano at Arenal, but the rest of the trip will be played on the first bounce. The best adventures are unplanned.

That BILL from Jennifer today just put me right off my grits and I decided to stop sitting around the Crackerbox and vegetating. I sent her a check and called my travel agent. I leave a week from Monday.

Heh. I also figured that since I was paying for the time share this year, I SHOULD USE IT, so I booked myself a week at Daytona Beach in August. I like the idea of spending the summer AWAY FROM HERE. The Crackerbox is depressing anymore.

I doubt that I'll be able to duplicate the first experience I had in Costa Rica. That trip was the most theraputic thing I've ever done in my life. The country is sooo beautiful and the people are sooo friendly that you can really get a lot of spiders and snakes out of your head there. I know I did. I didn't want to come home the last time.

I'm going back and I believe that I can make the trip with one carry-on bag and a small suitcase. I have four outfits to wear. If my clothes get stinky, I'll wash them, or buy something new. But I'm traveling light.

And I intend to keep doing that.


Remember to take a Rogalo Wing with you if you visit a volcano. Soaring beats hell out of trying to outrun an eruption.

Either take your guitar or buy one there. You'll definitely want to play on the beach or in a club.

Dang, sounds like fun (again). Guess if the clothes get too stinky you could take a plunge in the river with em all on; they say that's the way to get leather shoes to fit real good, get em wet and wear em til they are dry,,,maybe works with clothes, too

Nah, one of the things that's great about Costa Rica is that it just gets better every time you go. It's kind of like New York-- something new to experience everywhere you turn.

Probably one of the reasons I like it so much.

Watch out for those toads...and things that fall from the trees. We would hate to read about you in a newspaper like that!

You have to go to Cahuita on the Caribbean side. Its your kind of place, so laid back. You will never want to leave.
