The List... Part 1

Ok, everyone has been firing SO many things at me that I should do when I head to the States. So I'm going to work on a list. This is what I've got so far, in no particular order...

  • Meet someone in St Louis (I'm an old movie buff!)
  • See an Oprah show in Chicago
  • See Amish country (Ohio?) and buy a quilt
  • Take at least one Amtrak trip
  • Experience a truly white Christmas
  • Dress up in costume for Halloween
  • Visit the Hershey's factory
  • Visit the Ben and Jerry's factory in Vermont
  • Ride a Harley Davidson in Wisconsin
  • See the autumn colours
  • The Titanic Museum in Branson Missouri
  • Eat barbecue in at least three states.
  • Hot springs in Colorado and ski (even on the daggy kids slopes!)
  • Leave Kansas just so I can say "I'm not in Kansas anymore" (pick the Judy Garland movie thread happening here?)
  • Go to Hell
  • Eat in a real diner
  • Go to Dollywood
  • Ride a horse in Montana

And that's just for starters!! If you're reading this, PLEASE make some suggestions. Sometimes suggestions are perfect and you go "Why didn't I think of that??" Sometimes they trigger you to think of other things you'd like to do.

Hey Sleepy it is Touchytushy...make sure you have southern BBQ...there is nothing better than BBQ in the south and you must wash it all down with some southern sweet tea. If it turns out to be too sweet, cut it with a little lemon...from a true "southern cyster"...

I recommend trying chocolate coated pretzels and frozen choc dipped cheesecake on a stick. I fondly remember my experiences with these two foods the most. Ohh and eating Reese's Peanut Butter Cups, but I ate so many of them that I've really killed my desire for them so I wouldn't recommend overdosing on them like I did.

I've already overdosed on Reese's, I get everyone to send them to me all the time!
