Take A Trip And Never Leave The Farm!

As much as I love the old Jim Stafford song from which I took the title for this post (and as many times as I’ve personally experienced what that song was all about), the fact is that the “trips” I’ve dreamed of taking most have always been of an altogether different kind.

Man I tell ya, I’ve got so much stuff, everything from flying cars to fighter jets to spacecraft – so much, in fact, that I really don’t know how I’d have actually pulled it all together – and yet here I’ve managed to fritter the day away without so much as an attempt. But that doesn’t mean I’m gonna go down without doing anything at all. No way, Jose!

I can at least post these three really cool videos that express so well what it all means to me…
