Taco Bell! :y:

We decided to Head for the Border™ on our way out for the weekend, and it was quite an experience. After waiting 31 minutes :o to receive our taco order, all patience was lost. Unfortunately, I was tasked with driving, so I put 9L to work for me doing the requisite research via cellphone. Before we got to Safford, YUM! had lead us from Louisville to Irvine, I unleashed a tweetstorm and an annual report netted us the name I wanted. After a couple of snapchats with the daughter of the Director of Marketing, I finally got the man himself to answer the phone. While he wasn't thrilled I interrupted a holiday party he was attending, he agreed that 31 minutes for a fast food taco order was wholly unacceptable and rewarded me with a year's supply of tacos! :DANCE: (limit 2 per day).

What might have otherwise derailed our entire weekend turned into a point of humor and enjoyment as we all continually referenced the fiasco and the resulting reward while happily frolicking around camp together and while enjoying our hikes over the next two days! :FG:

Oh yeah. And Bonita Creek still rocks. Great to see the last group to camp there was ... me! Two years ago. I'll never understand it, but I surely don't mind. This place is magical. I still need to plan at least two nights here sometime. There is so much more I want to explore. I think barking Lily and the big group helped prevent us from seeing any coati this time. There are tons of beaver dams, but I think somebody has been in and trapped them because I didn't see any new tree cuts. I'd like to check it out in spring once the trees green up again.

Until then, I'll be at Taco Bell. :pk:
