Plan Ahead...Or Not

Plan Ahead...Or Not

If there's anything I've learned while on the bus, it's that you can never really plan for everything. Except for our stories, which for the most part have gone as planned, trying to schedule any extra activities has pretty much guaranteed that things will not go as you expected.

My latest example was our time in Pittsburgh - from a few days out, i looked like we would have a good chunk of time our first day where we weren't doing anything. So I, being an optimist, scheduled some time to go see friends in the area. This seemed like a really good idea until the morning we were to leave, when we found out that the van needed a new set of back tires. It was still better timing than our usual Friday night breakdowns, but it did cause me to have to make a slew of phone calls rearranging schedules. 

In the future, I should probably remember this experience and tell my friends that all my appointments will be organized on the spot, flash mob style.
