Ahmnodt Heare for President

Ahmnodt Heare For America… Ahmnodt Heare For You.

Trip Preparation

I am getting excited about my vacation that starts on Friday afternoon.  I will be driving to Saguache, Colorado.  Part of my time in Colorado will be spent in Fort Garland for Blanca Fest the following weekend.  Hopefully I won’t break my ankle this time and I’ll be able to partake in the hike that precedes the Blanca Fest festival.

For those who are interested in meeting up, I will be in Cleveland on Friday, Chicago on Saturday, and Grand Rapids, Nebraska on Sunday before arriving at Saguache early Monday afternoon.  Driving means I won’t have many of the problems I had last year.  But it also means I won’t be tweeting as often or looking at as much porn as I normally do.  I already have my camping gear packed and will have the rest of my stuff packed Thursday evening.

It turns out that the vacation route is nowhere near route I will be taking for the Affordable Entertainment Awareness walk-a-thon I will be doing starting in October.  It’s  also nowhere near the walk-a-thon I held last year in Liechtenstein.

The workload this week is rather heavy through Wednesday.  Thursday and Friday should be light and I am hoping to hit the road by 2PM Friday.  I will be too busy to host the radio show this Tuesday, but the show will left in what I hope will be fine hands.  The next two shows following that (August 17 and 24) will be on location from Fort Collins, Colorado.

It’s off to bed.  I have a lot to do, but not a lot of time to do it.  See you in America!

Weekend Part Two

As I stated in my previous post, I spent Friday night in a hospital.  While most people view this as unfortunate, it did solve my lodging problem.  I was released from the hospital on Saturday.  The fractured ankle took hiking out of the equation, so I spent the afternoon in Fort Garland.

I went to the camping area at 2:30 to retrieve my luggage.  It was awkward carrying a week’s worth of luggage while on crutches.  I limped to the Chuck Wagon buffet at around 3:15.  The food was very good even though it wasn’t Chuck Wagon dog food.  “Head for the Hills” played some kick-ass bluegrass music!  I was fortunate to find a couple heading to Saguache after the show ended.

I limped around Saguache Sunday morning.  People were friendly and waved.  However, I don’t think they knew that they were waving at the person many of them voted for President.

I had a quesadilla and Spanish Rice at a local Mexican restaurant.  As the waitress was placing my food on the table, she asked me about Blanca Fest.  I asked her how she knew how she knew I was at Blanca Fest.  She said she has been reading my blog for over a year and that she voted for me in November.   She said she figured that I was Ahmnodt Heare because nobody else in town was on crutches.  She added that she would pay for my lunch and that she wanted me to sign my bill as an autograph.  Chrystal (that was her name) invited me to watch the Broncos game that evening at her house with her husband,  parents and her brother.  They all also voted for me.

“I voted for Obama!” said an elderly lady who was standing behind Chrystal .  I told her that I accepted her apology.  She grunted and left.

I arrived at Chrystal’s just before 6PM.  Chrystal, her husband Kyle, her brother Darrell, and her parents Francisco and Daria were all wearing their “Ahmnodt Heare for President” t-shirts.  There was a Jay Cutler bobblehead doll hung in effigy.  People in Colorado are still upset ofer the situation which forced Cutler to be traded to the Chicago Bears.

I asked them how I became so popular in Saguache County.  Kyle said that the people in Saugache County wanted something different.  He added that Obama said he wanted change, but my platform was the only platform that offered significant change.

Darrell offered to drive me to Colorado Springs to get an affordable rental car.  I thanked him, but declined the offer.  I won’t need transportation until Friday, when I need a ride to Colorado Springs to take the bus to Denver.  Chrystal’s parents graciously offered to drive me home.

A Minor Problem

I am currently in Fort Garland, Colorado.  I have no place to stay tonight.  The hotels here are booked and Saguache is 78 miles away.  Renting a car is not in my budget, but I might rent one just so I have a place to sleep tonight.

UPDATE:  I couldn’t find a place to sleep, so I tried to find a place in the woods to set up a tent.  I didn’t have a tent, but if there was an area, it would have been a good spot to lay down my stuff.  I found an area, but slipped down a hill and hurt my ankle.

I limped back into town looking for a hospital.  The limp was more noticable as I wascarrying my stuff through Fort Garland.  I was given a ride to the hospital.  I spent the night in the hospital as it was discovered I had a fractured ankle and a concussion.  I won’t be able to go on the hike, but I am hoping to be released in time for the Chuck Wagon Dinner.
