Trip Start May 11, 2005
320Trip End Ongoing
The day we arrived we went to Pat's mom's house to have a little graduation party for his brother Casey. It was here that I got to meet the rest of Pat's family (father, mother, sister, brother). It was also here that Pat's mom decided that Dave and I were "derelict" (insert Zoolander joke here) and bad influences on her son. It was good to be hated again by another friend's family, it just like my high school days.
Pat's dad, on the other hand, was great. We stayed at his house and he showed us around town. He even came out the local bar with us. Since Montpelier is so small there really is no security around the capital
The rest of our time in Montpelier was spent driving a half hour North and playing frisbee golf. One day we got so into it we played 72 holes! We ruled that if the frisbee was not thrown past the women's tees on the opening drive, the player had to throw the second shot with his shorts at his ankles. This rule combined with a 30 pack of beer made for some photo's that I wont be posting!
One last thing we did is the Ben and Jerry's factory tour. Since this famous ice cream is made in Vermont we had to check it out. We even got to try a new flavor they have not started to sell yet.....Cheesecake Brownie! it was delicious!
