By the time you read this I will be on my way to La Crosse, Wisconsin. To watch Elvis impersonators. And people watch. And to hang out with a couple of friends and no kids for the weekend.
It is going to be interesting. I mean really – it sounds like the town just gets invaded with Elvi and Elvis crazies and then there are people like us who are basically going to just see what this whole thing is about.
My friend Jenny is kind of heading up this whole Elvis Explosion Road Trip thingee, to which we are calling “the road to explosion.” You can read about how it all came about here. I am part of the “Elvis Explosion Entourage.” We are staying in the hotel where most of the Elvis impersonators stay (ok, they actually call themselves Elvis Tribute Artists) and I am pretty sure that my friends and I are probably going to be the most sober people in the hotel. We’ll see. Word on the street is there are “after parties” there. Our after party might be going to Walgreens to get some kind of sleeping aid.
So anyway…….its going to be a good, interesting, fun weekend. I think we might be tweeting from the event; if you are into that sort of thing I think we are using #roadtoexplosion So there you have it.
I’ll be sure to let you know how it all pans out.
