    Default hoover, alabama trip timeline

    I might have left some things out that i forgot about - some things i left out because i just got reinstated, rangermom is a married woman, the pillow should not have to re-live its assault, etc

    its kind of long, but i hope yall can see how much fun we all had on the trip...

    ENJOY....

    Hoover Trip Timeline

    FRIDAY

    5:00am - my alarm clock goes off

    5:45 - my phone rings, its the guys in the Tahoe, im expecting them to be close - no, they're still on the Tollway

    6:10 - get another call, they are at highway 80 and beltline - no more than 10 minutes from the exit they are supposed to take and then CALL ME ON THE PHONE

    6:20 - i think, ok they must be going slow

    6:25 - nobody can go THAT slow

    6:30 - the phone rings - this is the conversation
    Jason - Hello
    Talena - Hey
    Jason - Where are y'all at?
    Talena - at interstate 20 and fm741
    Jason - how the hell did you get to i20
    Talena - I don't know
    Jason - WHY DIDN'T YALL CALL ME WHEN YOU TOOK THE EXIT
    Talena - i dont know, we thought we knew how to get there
    Jason - well it's not easy, thats why i said to CALL ME
    Talena - well sorry, we're girls and arent good at directions
    Jason - ok well exit and turn right
    Talena - ok
    Jason - **and i go on to give then directions to my house**

    6:45 - they finally get to my house - dad and kyle are awake and come out and tell us that we are crazy for going 600+ miles for a game - we tell them we know, but dont care

    7:00 - FINALLY pull out of the house, alabama bound - rangermom already has to pee

    8:00 - we get to canton, we are hungry - we stop at mcdonalds - it was delicious - this will be the last time we eat until LATE

    8:15 - back on the road - rangermom already has to pee again - ruben is snoring in the back seat

    9:30ish - we need gas - we get gas - we are all still pretty tired, the trip so far is uneventful

    9:35 - finally put in our first cd - it is rodney carrington - 'morning wood'


    10:00 - I am caught on video singing along with rodney
    we get our first phone call from pphsfan
    PPHSFan - where are yall
    Jason - still in texas
    PPHSFan - holy crap, yall are gonna have to haul
    Jason - I know **and i tell him what happened early this morning with them being late**

    10:30 - finally in another state - louisiana - they have cheaper gas, and cheaper beer - we get another phone call from PPHSFan
    PPHSFan - where are yall at
    Jason - Louisiana
    PPHSFan - its about freakin time
    Jason - shut up
    PPHSFan - call me when yall are in mississippi

    11:30 - rangermom has to pee again - ruben is snoring again

    12:00pm - we realize we are only half way there
    PPHSFan calls us again
    PPHSFan - where are yall
    Jason - We said we would call when we get to Mississippi
    PPHSFan - yall arent there yet?
    Jason - did we call you
    PPHSFan - true, call when you're close
    Jason - OK

    12:30 - finally in mississippi - their gas is cheaper than louisiana

    12:45 - we realize mississippi is a lot wider than we though

    1:00 - i get a strange text message, i have no idea who its from, i dont want to call them - talena decides she will - it is from aggie john - i ask where he got my phone #, he got it from the facebook aka stalkerbook - i had never felt so violated haha

    2:30 - we need gas again - this time we all have to pee

    3:00 - FINALLY in alabama - we call PPHSFan and tell him we're getting close, and we get confirmation on our directions on how to get to the hotel (see how calling and getting directions works)

    4:00 - we see the exit we have to take to head south - rangermom has to pee - and at this point in the trip, it is hilarious - she tells us just to get to the hotel

    So at this point, rangermom is BITING THE PILLOW every time we hit a bump or i hit the break, it is flat out hilarious - it is so funny, us laughing makes us all have to pee

    4:30 - 10 hours later, we are FINALLY at the hotel, rangermom jumps out, gives PPHSFan a hug, goes into the room, and pees - she walks out and says 'the floor is all wet, but it wasnt from me' - yeah right

    We all say our hello's and everybody meets everybody - and we decide to get ready and head up to the stadium -
    Everybody is ready to go, except talena and rangermom - we are now waiting on them

    5:30 - we are leaving for the stadium, I am driving, PPHSFan is my co-pilot, girls are in the back, and so are mark and ruben - we go maybe 50 feet and have to stop so pphsfan can go get his phone

    5:45 - we are walking into the stadium, everybody has tickets, phones, cameras, etc - rangermom has to pee again - still no food

    7:00 - finally time for kickoff - something weird, they did the national anthem before both teams were out on the field

    7:05 - john curtis receives opening kickoff, stud joe mcknight catches the ball in the endzone and just slams the ball down

    This gets our minds wandering, apparently in alabama football, if a ball is caught in the endzone on a kickoff, it is automatically a dead ball

    7:10 - joe mcknight gets his first carry, and busts one for close to 70 yards, mine, mark's and rubens jaws all drop, we look at PPHSFan and he goes 'i freakin told you he was a stud'

    7:20 - 6 minutes into the game, things happened, hoover is up 14-0 - we all secretly think 'crap'

    7:50 - hoover has missed 2 field goals, curtis has battled back

    8:35 - half time 14-14 - still no food - it is starting to get cold

    9:00 - curtis kicks off to hoover, they finally figure out to squib kick, curtis keeps hoover from a good runback

    9:45 - john curtis gets a delay of game - the play clock never started - this is when the anti-curtis reffing started

    10:00 - the game is practically over - hoover punts, ball hits a hoover player in the back of the head, curtis player picks up ball, runs into the WRONG endzone and celebrates a touchdown - curtis gets the ball back where it hit the hoover player - this play makes the espn NOT top 10 that night - curtis player walks off field holding head down in shame

    10:30 - game is over - curtis wins 28-14 - pphsfan can't talk, we're all kind of in shock - we go on the field and meet 'big siege' - we all want food

    11:15 - back at the hotel - pizza is ordered, drinks are cold

    11:45 - pizza guy gets there, we are in awe of him - that was the best papa john's pizzz any of us had ever had

    11:45 - 3am - this portion has been omitted due to extenuating circumstances HAHAH - there might be some pics floating around

    SATURDAY

    8:00am - somebody jabs me in the side - 'i think to myself, god dont let it be talena' - its not - apparently i have the keys to the car and they need them to go to wal mart to get a card for 'kellyes dads birthday' haha

    8:30 - rangermom goes to brush her teeth, instead of grabbing toothpaste in a tube, she grabs hair conditioner in a tube - her tongue was tangle free HAHA

    10:00 - everybody is awake and coherent

    11:00 - arrive at wafflehouse - some local high school kids see 'big siege' and ask him about the game and they tell him 'thanks for beating hoover'

    11:15 - we get our seats, and make fun of the ladies in the curlers

    12:00pm - breakfast is over, back to the room

    12:30 - everything is loaded time to hit the road

    keep in mind, it was only a 10 hour trip to get there

    1:00 - PPHSFan calls us and tells us to meet him at a gas station, he already misses us

    3:00 - finally leaving alabama, entering mississippi - things are pretty tame at this point

    3:10 - Droppie makes his first appearance

    4:45 - go over the mississippi river

    4:50 - realize we missed the exit, we turn around, we go back over the mississippi river

    5:00 - arrive at Vicksburg, Mississippi - we stop to look at the river, take a look at the park - while walking to the casino, ruben kicks the trailer hitch on a truck, he screams like a girl, we all point and laugh at him

    5:45 - me and rangermom go gamble - WE GET THROWN OUT OF THE CASION FOR HAVING A CAMERA

    6:00 - leaving mississippi, entering louisiana - 2 1/2 hours to go until shreveport, thats where we decide we will stop and eat supper

    8:00 - it is now dark, we stop at a gas station to get snacks, a strange girl comes up to the car, offers us a car tie down strap thing, we find that odd, i ask her for a picture - she declines but comes back asking for a lighter - she burns paper, gets paper wet, puts the paper on the inside of her windows, returns the lighter soaking wet - we start to pull out, she is right outside the car window, i scream, we peel out and leave

    9:30 - we arrive in shreveport, we decide to eat at the Boomtown Casino - we walk in, see a buffet, it is the greatest thing we have ever seen in our lives, they have EVERYTHING

    10:30 - we all have to use the facilities haha

    10:45 - me and rangermom are in the casino

    11:30 - we are leaving the casino, and realize we still need gas

    12:00 - we pull into the gas station, get out, and realize this is a very non-white gas station, me and mark get scared, make rangermom and talena go inside

    12:05 - mark puts condom on antenna just because we thought it would be funny

    12:15 - this is when we decide that 'what happens in the car on the road trip, stays on the roadtrip'

    12:40 - we cross into texas, bypassing the welcome to texas sign, so we turn around, stop at the welcome to louisiana sign, take pictures, coming back into texas, stop and take more pics at the welcome to texas sign

    1:15 - we arrive in lindale, texas, i am asleep, i buy red bull, i ask ruben if he wants me to drive, i misunderstand him, buy more sugar, and i take over the driving

    2:30 - FOURTEEN HOURS LATER we arrive in forney, texas - pooped out

    3:45 - get a text message from talena saying they are home, i message pphsfan to let him know we're all home - i go to bed

    the end

    I definately learned one important lesson this trip:

    Never EVER pass up the chance to pee!! I was in so much pain, and Mark's little "biting the pillow" joke just almost put me over the edge!

    Two things:

    1) RM is still young. Wait another ten years and she won't be able to go 50 miles and it won't be a wet bathroom floor it will be a wet front seat (but it won't be her fault, it is just the nature of the beast).

    2) Alabama plays by National Federation of High School rules like all but two states do. When the ball crosses the goal line on a free kick the ball becomes dead. Also no such thing as an uncatchable pass and a few other differences.
